Description: "Hey Kölle - Du bes e Jeföhl (Hey Cologne - you are a feeling)" is one of the most famous songs in Cologne. Experience this feeling yourself with a delicious "Kölsch" beer at the ALEX Cologne, directly on the lively Friesenplatz. The ALEX in Cologne has warm food on offer right up until closing time.

I recently had breakfast here with a friend while visiting Cologne. The restaurant had a great selection of bread & rolls, cold meats & cheeses and a selection of hot food too which included sausages, bacon & scrambled eggs. If you choose the buffet option you can eat whatever you want for less than €8 and this also includes a glass of orange juice! If you want to purchase hot drinks you can do so as well. A really great breakfast in a very nice restaurant, next time I am in Cologne I will definitely go back! If you prefer to go there for drinks, the place becomes a bar later in the day. I have been there in the evening as well and would recommend that also.

Just along from the Mercure City hotel, this restaurant offers a possibly better breakfast buffet for well under half the price.

Excellent choice of good quality food in comfortable modern surroundings.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for breakfast.
