Stopped in after visiting the cathedral. Great selection of cakes and desserts and my wife and I had apfelstrudel which was as good as we had ever tasted. Service was good but a bit slow as the restaurant was very busy. The "highlight" of our meal was paying over 6 Euros ($10 Canadian) for a cup of tea - I... More

Whenever we come out of Cologne's main station, our first stop is Café Reichard, an amazing Konditorei facing the Cathedral. It has a large terrace outside, partly protected against rain, and a lot of seating inside. It dates back to 1905, but it doesn't have an old fashioned feel, unless you equal "old fashioned" with "excellent quality". The view of... More

An excellent cake and coffee shop with almost too much choice. The lady behind the counter 'talked' us through the selection and then we went outside on the terrace to eat. It was a lovely experience and although quite pricey, very good

A good choice for a quick snack or drink while enjoying pretty much the only open view of Cologne Cathedral. Food and service are only average, but quite acceptable for an establishment facing a major tourist attraction.

To experience the best traditional German cakes we regularly go to Cafe Reichard when in Cologne. We choose from around 50 different types, my favourite being the creme cakes with marzipan cover. The ice cream chocolate 'Eisschokolade', with vanilla ice cream and chocolate-milk, is by far my favourite drink there. They also have hand made praslines and you can eat... More

Very well located, Cafe Reichard is a place you shouldn't miss. Try their apple strudel with warm vanilla sauce and you will not regret my advice. They have a good selection of teas and other cakes. Ideal stop in the afternoon admiring the beautiful DOM

Enter Cafe Reichard, just off the Köln Cathedral plaza, and it will be difficult to make a decision. You'll want them all, and one in our party finished one cake and ordered a second. We settled on Zhahn Kuchen, Gooseberry with meringue, Chocolate Grand Marnier and then a serving of sour cherry flan. Coffee and Caffé Macciatto were served on... More

I met a friend for coffee and cakes and we just sat and chatted outside with the wonderful Dom just across the way. Service was pleasant and I didn't feel rushed even although it was busy, being a beautiful day. Not too expensive considering the location and their cakes were delicious.

We stopped in to visit to washroom ( beautiful) and left with a delicious piece of cherry pie to-go. Our friends had the rhubarb custard which they said was also delicious. We toured around Cologne and then came back for another round!
