We've been coming here for years when we visit cologne. Exceptional pastries and unusual breakfast and regular sandwiches. Excellent cappuccino and lattes. Right around the corner from the Dom (where breakfast is 29 euros each!...average cost for both of us breakfast and coffees = 10 euros!)

We ate breakfast here for a couple of days and really enjoyed it. There is a huge range of freshly made rolls with lovely fresh fillings. There are so many bread goods to choose from and delicious looking gateaux. The trouble is there is too much choice and it's so difficult to make a decision!! The coffee is also very good. We sat in to eat but there is also plenty of outside seating which will be lovely to sit at in the warmer months. Highly recommended.

Gosh. love the food on offer here. Could stay all day, every day. Find myself packing some in my suitcase to bring back to the UK. I'm in Cologne maybe 3 times yr on business and definitely stop here for a tasty pastry.

Very fresh sandwhiches and delicious hot cocoa. This bakery was bustling. Lots to choose from, and nice friendly service. I ordered a slice of cheesecake as well and got way more than expected ( which is always good). Definitely a place to eat while in Cologne, whether fro breakfast, brunch or light lunch, dessert.
