Great location just off the cathedral square and not far from the hauptbahnhof, but it just didn't wow us. We stopped in for dessert and while our hot chocolate and apple strudel came quickly the overworked waitress took quite awhile to flag down for the bill.

It's located just accross from the cathedral. It's recommended to have a break or coffee. It's great and the food is also good. Must go if you visit Cologne.
