A pub "Kneipe" with occasional events. Sünner Kölsch on tap, interesting interior... Stefanos, the owner, combines typical Cologne fare with lighter dishes with a Greek touch. Outside seating available, though somewhat noisy due main street traffic.

The working man's (women's) place, a tad rowdy, but very much "Kölsch" with real value for their meals, and a small beer garden in the back. Nice wines as well; daily menu for far less than 10 Euro!

Our recommendation for the cleanliness, English menu, and airy inside atmosphere in this newly redecorated old beer house. Near Weinhaus Vogel and Thai Imbiss on Eigelstein.

Früh Kölsch, typical atmosphere; food lacks love, but you can get that from people sitting at your table. Outside seating in a little square, spotty service.

Our fave Chinese, with a lovely couple as owners. Tasty food, inventive dishes. Yes, they do an awesome fried duck! Try #85 Beef Pot! Vegetarian dishes in a large variety. In a green area; nice to sit outside. Some Sichuan spicy cooking, but many milder choices. Open for lunch; closed Tuesdays.

Quick stop with open kitchen, and people constantly going in and out: A sure sign for good Thai food! Yes, authentic, not expensive, fresh and hot. For a small, satisfying meal. Also take-out. Lecker!

German brewpub with beer garden, and a few tables upfront. Near St. Ursula church (yes, the one with the room full of bones!), not far from the Central Station. The usual fare, but excellent Kölsch!!!

The owner lives in our Veedel, so I am prejudiced... The best lunch place, with local ingredients cooked with love by the ladies in the kitchen. Always packed with lunch crowds, at noon opening, so come early or late. They close at 15:00 for good.

Sardinian "Gourmet Workshop", the name means "Rosemary" (the herb!). Homemade food by a friendly family; excellent wines, remarkable main courses. I could just eat their pasta/ravioli and be happy!

Vincenzo and Vater Carmelo, plus Antonio serving are simply a loveable bunch, and the full service restaurant closest to our B&B. From savory pizza to tasty pasta, they cook up a storm. Closed on Wednesdays, alas! My favorite dish is Pizza Italia...

For Pintxos style Tapas, and ecclectic beer choices, head to the southwestern corner of the Nippes farmer's market. Very friendly folks and new tasty morsels make this a choice, if heavy food is not your choice. Reservations almost required, the open at 18:00 and close... whenever.

Beatrix and her team serve delicious morsels at this modern-style corner restaurant. My favourite is the date wrapped in bacon, and we've never eaten anything we did not enjoy. It helps that wine and food are reasonably priced. Do reserve or be there when they open at 18:00 to get an inside or outside table.
