CAFÉ RIESE IS A RENDEZVOUS OF THE SENSES!
Starting with the fragrance of freshly brewed coffee handmade by our barista, passing by the delicious specialties of our master baker at the bread counter and continuing to the exquisite creations of our confectioners from our confectionery and cake shop. You will find our savoury „Riesäppchen“ (Cologne style tapas), the fresh and homemade daily menus, our bread selection and our homemade ‘Riese-Ice-Cream’ equally inviting.
The large selection of food and beverages guarantees pleasure à la carte – be it the restaurant, winter garden or at the classic café. Our recipe for success: ‘Prime ingredients meet creativity & traditional craftsmanship.’
FINDING OUR COFFEE BAR IS PRETTY EASY: JUST FOLLOW THE LOVELY AROMA.
Finding our coffee bar is pretty easy: just follow the lovely aroma. Irrespective of whether you prefer a quick caffeine kick with a coffee to go, a ‘Chocochino’ or our ‘Donalonso’ – our barista will assist you with the right choice. Our coffee creations are made based on selected ingredients serving a piece of Mediterranean lifestyle in Cologne.
A perfect addition to this culinary highlight would be our ‘Riesäppchen’ (Cologne style tapas). Whether you opt for a mini-potato fritter with smoked salmon or a ‘Mini-Halven Hahn’ (translation: half a rooster, but means a traditional cheese sandwich) – our daily varying ‘Riesäppchen’ menu are always a great choice.
CAKE SHOP – WOULD YOU LIKE A SLICE OF TRADITIONAL APPLE PIE? OR RATHER A LEMON ROLE?
It doesn’t matter what your ideal choice is, we are sure your favorite cake or gateau is part of our selection. Pamper yourself without a guilty conscience. We only use the highest quality ingredients in our specialties – no wonder our ‘bee sting cake’ is considered the best in Cologne for decades. Our original ‘Riese-Spiced Cookies’ in a ‘Dom’ shape and the mouth-watering ‘Cinnamon-Dömchen’ are always a great gift – not only at Christmas time.
CONFECTIONERY – WITH A CHOCOLATE-PRALINE FROM OUR EXQUISITE COLLECTION LIFE SHOWS ITS BEST SIDE.
Why not take a break from daily life and have a piece of luxury melting away on your tongue. Select from 50 different kinds at our chilled counter such as the popular ‘Dom-Praliné’ filled with amaretto-marzipan and nougat or chocolate figures resembling seasonal topics such as the spring awakening, Easter or Christmas manufactured out of the finest Belgian chocolate.
RESTAURANT – ‘KÖLSCH’, MEDITERRANEAN, FRESH!
The light cuisine of the Café Riese restaurant – a mix of Mediterranean and typical Cologne style dishes which are freshly prepared on a daily basis – comprises a vast selection of different vegetables, high-quality oils, fresh herbs, changing daily menus, regional and fresh ingredients as well as vegetarian meals. The ‘Riesäppchen’ (Cologne style tapas) are also a great addition to the seasonal menu.
TRAITEUR – FRENCH BAKING TRADITION MEETS SAVORY SNACKS!
French baking tradition meets savoury snacks – this is when our traiteur is at work. Join us for a culinary voyage of discovery and enjoy delicacies with ingredients fresh from the market such as Quiche Lorraine, onion pie or tender pates. Small, but oh my…that is the motto with which we prepare our fresh specialties – every day. Have a seat and experience our French finesse. We wish you Bon Appétit!
BREAD SHOP – CRISPY AND FRESH!
It accompanies us throughout the day. Whether for breakfast, as a quick snack or for dinner: bread is indispensable from our daily menu. The diversity of breads in Germany is renowned internationally and following this tradition our Riese bread shop offers a unique selection of more than 40 different kinds of bread. Irrespective of what you opt for – bread, buns, cakes or sweet buns – everything is freshly baked several times a day based on the principles of our craftsmanship and delivered fresh and crispy in your hands. By the way, in addition to our own products we provide a selected choice of specialties manufactured by master bakers from our region.
