Perfect location and good selection of patisseries. Haven't got a chance to try the foods but cakes that we tried are great. For price and portion itself,comparing where we live in Dubai is affordable with better taste.

We came here on a VERY wet day & it fitted the bill completely. It is light and airy with an opulent ambience inside (a true Coffeehouse experience). Given that they were not busy due to the weather, the waiting staff were attentive and friendly without being too obtrusive. If you go through to the shop area, you can survey... More

My friends decided to start our Sunday with cakes and cappuccino, and was really good choice cafe Reichard! Cakes left us without words and also cappuccino was really good! Since it's really touristic and looks bit snobby... I was scared about the waiter, but I was totally wrong! Really kind person! If you visit Koln you can't miss this cafe

You wont get a better view of Cologne Cathedral than this. Its an amazing place to have cake and coffee or tea. Its pricey but these snacks are so worth it. Please dont miss out on the bathrooms!!! Another cool experience! Must try!!!

The cafè is located where you have a real good view of the Dom if you sit outside. My husbands chocolate cake melted in his mouth like butter he said. My peach with a vanilla cream filling was sooooooo gooooood. It is a little more expensive than other cafès but....it was worth every cent. AND, you've got to go to... More

You may wonder by the title but talk about innovation but I won't spoil it by telling you exactly what it is. The food was very good as was the service. Great location opposite the cathedral. They have a cake and chocolate shop, yummy.

This cafe/restaurant owes its attraction to its location close to the cathedral, the railway station and the Rhine moorings - ideal when disembarking from a Rhine cruise. The cakes and pastries are of a high quality if rather expensive. There is a long descent via a spiral staircase to the toilets.

Good quality food and expensive prices (sitting in city centre in front of the cathedral). Despite of the good food, the choices for a breakfast are really poor. Personnel is also not very friendly, maybe due to too many customers?

Still a home to the most impressive patisserie, we made the mistake of visiting over the weekend of the May Day public holiday - the place was absolutely full, as I've never seen it before. Moral; choose your date carefully!

Café Reichard is directly across from the cathedral in central Köln (Cologne), very convenient for tourists. We ate a light lunch here, ordering delicious carrot-ginger and potato-leek soups. The dining room is charming and elegant (but not dressy), and the front of the locale is a fine pastry shop. This is more of a tea and dessert place than a... More
