I love this place. It is elegant, charming, classic, and beautiful. I think it is a must if you are visiting Koln. The places is absolutely beautiful, and the service is fantastic. We visited twice during our two day visit! They had some of the best cakes I have ever seen, and tasted. Fantastic place to drink some nice coffee... More

My fiance and I are frequent customers whenever we visit Cologne. It is a very quaint little cafe with some elegance to it and the food and drinks are excellent. It is particularly nice to sit at the terrace when the weather is nice, as it offers a full view of the cathedral. Needless to say, it is a bit... More

This place is so beautiful that even the desserts look like a work of art. The coffee is good and so is the food. I was there once for lunch and had the salmon ( yummy) on another occasion I had Apple strudel and coffee. Both good experiences. For those that have never eaten in Germany, service is generally slow

I recommend a stop here whenever you come through Koeln. I always do to make sure I get at least a Kaffee and Kuchen. Their selection is very nice..best around. Views of Dom are great, if you can sit outside. Staff is helpful and prompt. Highly recommended!

Had lunch here - the salmon and potato rosti were a little greasy, but delicious. The cake selection is amazing! I had the gooseberry meringue and my companion had black forest cake - both were heavenly. No trip here would be complete without checking out the loos - they have the most incredible doors!

With a terrace facing the Cologne cathedral, this café offers a short lunch menu and an enticing list of desserts. Prices are a bit higher than nearby locations, but they include the view. Service is efficient and friendly, and food portions are individual.

Visited with my wife and a friend in December 2015. We ordered Tea (Grosse Tasse Tee), Thai Curry, Spaghetti Waldpilze and Riesengarnelen as individual main course and a Dessert (Eiscafe). We really enjoyed our meal and also the view of the Cathedral. The place is always packed, but we did not have trouble finding a great table. We paid 50Euro... More

One of the worst bar experience in Cologne. The person taking our order was extremely rude. He was checking his phone while taking our order. The service was extremely slow. Had to wait for long time to get served. When we asked for Kolsch he asked for our passport. It's the first time in my many visits around Europe and... More
