“Popular restaurant near the cathedral”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

This cafe/restaurant owes its attraction to its location close to the cathedral, the railway station and the Rhine moorings - ideal when disembarking from a Rhine cruise.
The cakes and pastries are of a high quality if rather expensive.
There is a long descent via a spiral staircase to the toilets.

“Good quality food, poor choice”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Good quality food and expensive prices (sitting in city centre in front of the cathedral). Despite of the good food, the choices for a breakfast are really poor. Personnel is also not very friendly, maybe due to too many customers?

“Really good - but everybody knows it!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Still a home to the most impressive patisserie, we made the mistake of visiting over the weekend of the May Day public holiday - the place was absolutely full, as I've never seen it before.
Moral; choose your date carefully!

“Charming place for tea, dessert or a light meal”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Café Reichard is directly across from the cathedral in central Köln (Cologne), very convenient for tourists. We ate a light lunch here, ordering delicious carrot-ginger and potato-leek soups. The dining room is charming and elegant (but not dressy), and the front of the locale is a fine pastry shop. This is more of a tea and dessert place than a restaurant, but you certainly can make a meal of it. It does not feel like a tourist trap.

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Fantastic location just in front of the Cologne Cathedral. Enjoyed a wonderful coffee and cake outside. The inside atmosphere is like a coffee house in Vienna, so you can have a wonderful experience even if it's too cold or rainy to sit outside. Great service. Perfect location to watch the other tourists.
