I ordered the schnitzel which was large and very tasty. The staff are friendly and polite. The atmosphere is pleasant. I would suggest sitting on the pavement if warm enough.

Stayed at the attached Hotel Chelsea so had several breakfasts, one lunch and one dinner here. Breakfasts were quite adequate, nothing fancy, but ample, fresh and tasty. Croissants were a big hit with my associates. Lunch is best taken outside on the plaza if weather permits. Blankets are available for diners if you get cold. I had the lunch special... More

I've visited this cafe several times with business associates. Each time it provided a pleasant backdrop for our meetings. With a nice array of beverages and food, it's quite easy to find something appropriate to sip or nibble on. The service is friendly and attentive, without being pushy. I appreciate their selection of "bio" products and plan to try their... More

The Cafe Central has recently revamped its menu and now offers a range of sophicated choices along with a good wine choice. The outdoor sitting area is a real plus during the summer months especially as it is now adorned with large leafy palm plants!

The café is part of a hotel and serves breakfast,lunch and dinner. I have been there for breakfast. You have the choice of a buffet or set breakfasts.... More

When we travel, we like to go where the locals go. In Cologne, which is a huge city, we had more trouble than we usually do in finding the local spots, which were certainly not identified in our guidebook! We ultimately ended up in what we now know is called the "Belgian Quarter", where many of the streets are named... More
