Café Rico's hot chocolate is my favorite! - made with real Valrhona chocolate - superb! Nice place in stylish Mittelstrasse. Lively atmosphere!

It's not easy to find a place here. It is always full and there is a good reason. Everything tastes delicious here. Homemade cakes, nice quiches, soups, salads. I come here almost every Saturday morning.

We went whilst visiting the Christmas markets, the food was good value, good quality and well presented. The outside seating area is a nice spot to watch the world go by, it has blankets and heaters which was a nice touch. The staff spoke excellent English, toilets are first class although you pay a small fee.

Yum! Cafe Rico didn't disappoint. They have a hearty breakfast menu, and you can also get Flammkuchen in the morning. They also have a selection of gluten free cakes every day.

I got TripAdvisor so that I could review this place, that's how good it was! The banana bread French toast is the best breakfast I've ever eaten. I visited twice whilst in the area, and ate the same thing both times. The location is really great, surroundedd by lots of greenery and it has a great and friendly atmosphere, with... More

I came in pretty stressed and needed a table with access to charger/electricity. I met a very helpful staff and sat for a much longer time then I planned. This is a very nice cafe! Kind and professional staff and great coffee. I ordered a chicken salat. Very nice taste. Thank you.

My wife and I visited this friendly brunch spot on a Sunday early afternoon. It was fairly full but we found some seating outside. The portions are big and delicious. My wife's goat cheese salad was remarkable.

Breakfast was very good, the food was good value, but the drinks were very expensive (fruit juices were €6 each)

This cafe is centrally located, pleasant, friendly and has (most importantly) good food and drinks. The menu is varied, tasty and not expensive. A table on the terrace for brunch is ideal to watch the world go by - or lounge on the sofas :) An Aperol Prosecco on a hot day really seems to be the right thing to... More
