Spent an hour here with friends after arriving in Cologne, they have great coffee and wonderful pastries. The backdrop of the Dom makes also makes for an enjoyable time. Service was good and prices were reasonable.

We've been to this place a few times already. Breakfast is definitely recommended. If you have a sweet tooth, you will be fully rewarded, from desert to drinks, absolutely yum. Service is a bit slow, but then..just sit back and enjoy your treat
