I'm pretty sure this guy opening up early for us (it was tipping down and he didn't seem to be quite ready to open) however, we tried the door and he welcomed us in. Very happy to accommodate us. We ordered warm food not icecream. It was well prepared, fast and inexpensive. All in all a great experience given like... More

Came here to get drinks and warm ourselves up after visiting the Christmas Market but we got the worst service ever in Germany. The waiter was extremely rude and sarcastic because we asked him for an additional spoon which he declined to give us because he state that the ice cream was meant for one person to eat only (and...

We are extremely annoyed to the extent that I am writing this review while I am in the cafe eating my ice cream and hiding from the cold. Please read and don't come in. Ice cream was okay, but everything was destroyed when the waiter that served us was extremely rude. We are university students traveling in Germany for Christmas,... More

We had a coffee break here, the staff was friendly and alert. We had Apfelstrudel which was ok and one of us had ice cream, unfortunately the ice cream had large ice crystals in it and not nice at all!

I went for lunch with my family. Service was good, we had toast and flammkuchen which were good, cheap too. Maybe not a must do in Cologne, but great for a quick bite.

I don't understand why people voted this place for almost 5 stars. It is absolutely the worse service and quality I had experienced. Latte came almost like out of the fridge then when I asked to be changed it came back just hot milk with almost no coffee in it. My friend had a cup of black coffee and her's... More

I simply bought a cake and a Vodka Redbull to drink. The cake was fine, as was the service, but the drink which I paid 6.90Euro for had watered down vodka (or schnapps) and imitation energy drink- not what I paid an extortionate price for. The receipt also stated vodka+Redbull. If it had been the real thing and if they... More

Our family had escaped successfully from one of the rooms at the nearby Indizio Escape rooms and needed a drink and a little while to take stock of the whole, great experience. We walked a few metres down into one of the squares of the Altstadt and decided to get out of the light rain and have a drink outside... More

One star is too generous! Stopped in at 10:45pm Sunday night for a quick ice cream before bed. Ordered and paid for it "to go". As it was a nice night, I decided to spontaneously sit down moments later in one of their outdoor seats that were wide open before walking the 2 blocks to my hotel Stern Am Rathaus.... More
