Burger Restaurant
“...well, it is not close by but you have to visit if you love premium burgers: They do the best I have had anywhere, also the sweet potatoe fries are simply exceptional. The craft beer selection is so good that some people only visit to buy these beers that you usually do not get to buy elsewhere. They guarantee that the meat is all from their cows and organic, they can talk 20 minutes about the bread they use for their burgers if you want to hear get there best by subway”

Cocktail Bar
“This is - to me - ONE OF THE BEST COCKTAIL BARS IN COLOGNE. No kiddin'! The problem with all the others is that they are mostly too expensive or too snobby. Honestly, these boys take cocktails serious and do not exaggerate - neither in price, nor in style. For 24 Euros you can make a so called "Weltreise" ("World Trip") and drink four cocktails of your choice. The BarFLY-Feeling included! :) This bar is a pearl! ”

Wine Bar
“If you want to enjoy your time in a very beautiful and old-fashioned parisian styled cafe visit the wine bar / Weinstube MORIO. It is absolutely beautiful and a bit hidden at the square of 'Schillplatz'. The prices are alright, too, and the dishes extremely tasty. Highly recommended! PS: If you like sweeter white wine I recommend the 'Colombard'.”
