Went there several times. All I eat and drank so far was really delicious, from cake to tarte flambee, from ginger-lemongrass tea to Aperol Spritz which is one of the best I had so far. Usually, the staff is very obliging and friendly. Only inconvenience: It's so difficult to get a table or seat outside. And it's a pity that they close early in the evening, I think at 8 pm.

This cafe is lovely , French , Spanish and English menu translations are available and there's a nice selection to choose from.
The staff are really friendly! It was incredibly busy but so cosy it was worth the wait .

Very busy when I arrived and nobody showed me to a table and a couple pushed past me and grabbed the only available table; all witnessed by a member of staff.

The waiter got my order wrong and the milk comes in a UHT packet.

The French Brunch was okay.

I was sat next to a door and every time it opened opened I thought I was in the artic circle.

The bill was €8,60 and they won’t take a card unless your bill is a minimum of ten euros. The small print for this is buried in the menu. So I had to pay ten euros. For this and this alone I won’t be going back and can’t recommend this place.

Lieber Simon!
Schade, dass es Ihnen bei uns nicht gefallen hat.
In Deutschland ist es in Cafés - wo der Rechnungsbetrag für das Frühstück 8,60 € ausmacht - nicht üblich, dass ein Platzierungsservice angeboten wird.

Auf Grund, dieses von Ihnen reklamierten 'Mangels' wurden Sie auch nicht neben die Türe gesetzt, sondern haben sich selbst dorthin gesetzt.

Zu dem von Ihnen bestellten Kaffee ist es hierzulande nicht unüblich, dass dazu Kaffeemilch gereicht wird, in unserem Fall handelt es sich um Kaffeesahne von Julius Meinl. Auf Wunsch reichen wir gerne auch Vollmilch, nur reden müssen Sie.

We stopped in Cologne for breakfast, and RICO did not disappoint. The service was good and breakfast amazing. A good selection of food and drinks.

We always go to Rico for breakfast - the staff are really friendly and the menu choice is huge - plus the prices are very reasonable - try the Farmers omelette - it's great if you are hungry!
