Coffee and Cakes & View of the Cathedrale

This is the best place to sit and take-in the splendour of Cologne Cathedral while indulging in fine coffee and cakes - or an ice cream. There is plenty of outside seating that provides some shelter from the rain or sun, while offering a great view of the Cathedral. I'd been here before and... read more

We passed by this cafe and decided to buy some chocolate bon bon for a present. We asked whether we can choose from the selection. She said no, we can only bought from the one which was already packed in a box. My husband asked why we can not choose the bon-bon but she did not want to give any... More

It was a glorious morning in perfect sunshine, sitting at a table outside, right in front of Cologne Cathedral, with a lovely strawberry cake and and a smooth Cafe Latte, watching the world go by. Great location, great quality, very good service....

A great cafe with a large indoor and outdoor seating area right near the cathedral. It can be very busy here, having to wait for a table, but staff were quick to clear up and take new orders. Large array of food and drinks available, but specials were cakes, ice cream and chocolates. Great place to sit and watch the... More

Perfect location to sit outside the cathedral drinking a coffee and eating a delicious sweet treat. A wonderful place to people watch in Cologne.

A fantastic collection of cakes, gateaux and tarts. Teas of your choice. Bone china cups, silverware and perfect service. A string quartet was there on a Saturday afternoon. Views of the Dom. Value for money.

This place has the elegance of a grand cafe in Paris or even Fortnums in London. I visited the place twice during a weekend break in Cologne with my other half who arranged the trip as a surprise. The cafe has beautiful cakes on display and also chocolates that you can buy and bring back which feature the cafe's insignia.... More

Cafe REICHARD, you can't miss it, is just opposite Koln's Cathedral. It is a perfect reflection of Germany, with patrons of all ages, but mainly more senior, a kind and bustling staff. It has huge terrasse with a magnificent view, where both locals and tourists love to linger while sipping their coffee and eating some of this Cafe's wonderful pies.... More

Okay, okay, so the deco is a bit old fashioned: as many Germans may describe, an "OMA Cafe" (Cafe for grandmas), but they serve gorgeously handcrafted traditional German cakes that will definitely satisfy your tastebuds. My recommendation: the Gooseberry or Strawberry or Any berry Baiser/meringue fruit cake. Their Meringue/Baiser is never too hard, but perfectly baked to a subtle crisp... More
