Fantastic cakes and pastries in this city cafe. We enjoyed a 'city' breakfast with good bread and coffee Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth a look in and a must if you're a cake fan.. If they taste half as good as they look!

Its become one of our regular past times to have some ( window ) shopping around Belgian District through Rudolfplatz (Rudolfsq.) to Ehrenstr -Mittelstr. or Schildergasse in Neumarkt up to the Hohestr. approaching the Cathedral and Rhine River ( Heumarkt ), so no wonder if we passed this venue often enough. Surely we spotted the blackboard at the passage with... More

Ate breakfast here for the 4 days we stayed in Cologne. Good value for money, at €9.45 for two you get fresh orange juice, boiled egg, 2 croissants,each, jam and butter. Very friendly staff who go out of their way to help. Cannot recommend enough.

Came across this cafe on our first day & stopped for strudel & Kolsch, both very nice. Returned each day of our trip for a lunchtime treat - so many delicious cakes to choose from.

Well, after going here several times over the past 5 years, I just have to give up. The variety of cakes kept me coming, but the consistent snobby and unfriendly treatment I get from the servers are enough to put me off from ever coming again. It's very difficult to feel comfortable there when you as a customer are made... More

Excellent cakes and Frau Fromme can be seen working the counter. I still prefer chocolate tortes. I do not expect the servers to speak English. There is outdoor seating and a lovely area with a large glass window so you can watch shoppers pass by. Very friendly and local. Really quite traditional and quality tortes.

My friend and I visited Cologne this week and incidentally went to this Cafe to take a rest. We were attracted because there were a variety of cakes. We ordered an apple strudel with vanilla sauce and an apricot cheese cake. Both of them were very delicious. At the beginning I made a mistake about my order due to too... More

The cakes and pastries in their window display are already very inviting, but if you're more of a breakfast or brunch eater, Fromme is perfect for you. Past the bakery is a dining area, and if it's warm out, there are also tables outside. I ordered the Schlemmer Frühstück which had a slice each of black bread, white bread and... More
