Good food with a view

My wife and I ate here twice during our stay in Cologne. The food was delicious, well presented and served quickly. We chose to sit outside with the cathedral as our back drop.

Dont go to the cafe!!! The personal is terrible and very unfriendly! I experienced this now at least three times. I will not go there anymore unless the service personal changes. If You want to enjoy your time go in Altstadt.

A great place to sit beneath the dom and have a piece of apple strudel and a nice cappuccino. The food looked decent as well

This elegant cafe is directly opposite the cathedral and is a favourite of locals and visitors. We had coffee and cake, chosen from an amazing display. The service is excellent and the ambience one of friendly elegance. Quite pricey but a must when visiting Cologne.

Good high class tea shop food (this does not do it justice). Wonderful toilets! Tafelspitz is good plain cooking, as it should be. Trio of Nirwegian salmon was more ambitious

An elegant and upmarket cafe which has excellent cakes and some fine speciality teas from around the world. As to be expected with its location, it is quite touristy and relatively expensive but is certainly worth a visit to experience the atmosphere and surroundings. As you enter, you need to find a table and then eventually a waitress will appear... More

This is a very traditional Cologne place, where you get the best cakes and your good german-style coffee pot. It's always busy and service can therefore be slow (it could also be a little friendlier to be honest, but the waiters/waitress always have enough to do, to be fair), but it's a must if you want to try a traditional...
