Coffee break and cocooningCologne
Venloer Straße 400
Café Rotkehlchen is a small, cosy gourmet tea room. It's the perfect place to take a break with a bowl of vegan soup, a hot chocolate or a big slice of cake.
The first word that comes to mind when I try to describe the Ehrenfeld district is "bubbling" rather than "cocooning". Over the past ten years, this hot night spot has hung up its overalls to welcome new waves of designers, boutiques and electronic music. Café Rotkehlchen adds a touch of sweetness and poetry, which gets it good press far beyond Ehrenfeld.
A safe cocoon
In contrast to the surrounding architecture, Café Rotkehlchen cultivates a style imbued with nostalgia. Old-school furniture, traditional tiling with a flower motif, brick walls...you get the impression that you've entered a timeless cocoon. The cocoon isn't very big. It only has a few tables, but it will sustain you with vegetarian, and often vegan, cooking.
It's impossible to leave before having a nice helping of fruit and vegetables! You can go to the café anytime of the day for breakfast, tea, coffee, a smoothie packed with fresh fruit and, especially, to talk, to dream...to cocoon in peace and comfort.
I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
