Overlooking the Cathedral, Café Reichard is a pleasant stop for a light lunch, a beer or just a capucino. Service is excellent. The outside seating area where you can admire the cathedral and passers by is heated during cold weather.

We had duck and Rosti for lunch. Both decent quality, but not more than that. Service and atmosphere was pleasant. Maybe should have had a cake here. Maybe next time.

This place is beautiful, old time charm..has two sides.one for lunch and the other just for coffee and desert...deserts are out of this world delicious! Lunch was great! We had wild salmon on a bed of leaks with creamed spinach. I would come back here any time again. Also you are looking at the famous old cathedral .

This is a perfect spot to stop and rest your legs after spending hours inside of the Kölner Dom. Before you select a table and order your cup of coffee, go inside and choose your slice of torte. Unless you speak German, this is the best way to make your choice. It can be overwhelming due to the options. The... More

The most expensive and disappointing coffee I have ever had. Very beautiful place but with a very poor service. The location with the view of the famous cathedral is excellent. But that's all.

The location with the view of the famous cathedral is excellent. The cakes and chocolates are very good too. However, this cafe has one of the WORST group of waitresses in the world!! I do not know if they are this badly trained or just this arrogant... they purposely try to avoid serving and helping customers. They are miserable, unwelcoming... More
