This little cafe/bistro is situated in Burtschide neighbourhood of Aachen. In the past (150yrs ago) this was small spa village just outside of the city walls, now as the city expand is part of it, but still retain the feel of village with high street , where this little cafe is situated. As a traveller you have to look for it, as is far out of the center.
Actually that is the whole charm of the cafe as it sits in the nice secluded sqare, where you can relax and watch the world go by.
The cafe mainly serves Italian & Turkish food with a twist, and I like it very much.
Also they serve delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Decor is very relaxed French '20 Bistro, is not huge,has about 17 tables, and when weather permits there is front patio to sit by nice fountain and small garden .
Portions are pretty generous and the price is very affordable. Even the cups of coffe are big!
You can come by for a cup of coffe( proper French roast) or for nice lunch/ dinner
They are open from 11:00-23:00 Mon-Sat
Favorite Dish: My favourite is home made tortellini with ricotta and spinach, with lovely zesty tomato & cream sauce.
My son prefers their lasagna.
But whatever you order you won't be sorry.

The owners of Eis Caffee Tasin are fullbloded Italians and the Ice cream they serve is the real thing!! Proper,melt in your mouth ambrosia...
I love the fact that they have over 30 different flavours of icecream, and also have Ice cream for diabetics and a big choice of sorbets and frozen yougurts.
I was proprerly impresed with the sorbets, as is not your run of the mill, frozen flavoured water with big lumps of icicles, but fresh natural juces made in realy delicious sorbets.
Very handy if you have familly or frends and travel companions wich are lactose intolerant or diabetic.
I highly recomend visit to this place! Is not to be missed.
And if you are ice cream lover, the portions are humongus!!!!!

Having found the atmospheric and friendly Cafe Egmont for a few beers after our arduous afternoon of culture, history and Christmas Market shopping we reckoned a serious nibble was in order - something a bit more substantial than the freebie nuts that came with the beers. There were menus on the tables from the Lebanese restaurant AKL and upon enquiring of one of the servers about ordering, she explained that AKL was the take-away next door.
It seems Cafe Egmont and AKL have an agreement whereby the cafe's customers can order food from the takeaway and have it delivered to them at their table and so that's what we did.
Favorite Dish: We opted for one each of the "veggie" and normal meze platters between the four of us and these arrived within minutes. Each platter was substantially laden with all sorts of Middle-eastern goodies: falafel, samosas, kibbeh, pastry rolls, flatbread and a variety of dips and speads, all artistically presented.
Everything was tasty, freshly-cooked and being able to enjoy without leaving our comfortable table in the main bar area was a doubleplusgood bonus.
Yep, an excellent agreement - the "before" and "after" pics tell the tale :-)

...then it's got to be sausages and beer time!
I'm not sure whether "Loosen's" is the name of this stall or the name of the sausage maker but whatever this is a must do if visiting any Christmas Market anywhere in Germany. At Aachen's there were several food and drink stalls offering variations on the sausage/frites/reibekuchen theme but this one had the best variety and a covered eating area at the back.
My Bockwurst mit Sauerkruat was excellent and not particularly expensive. I was a bit disappointed with the beer though - Jupiler being one of the cheaper Belgian beers - and the service was a bit offish. No sooner had we finished eating when the guy came to clear our table and almost literally chased us off. But HeyHo it was mulled wine time anyway!!

Printen is the Öcher (Aachen) variation on a gingerbread theme, and in the city centre, you'll come across many shops which specialise in this local delicacy.
Shame on me, even as a devoted gingerbread enthusiast, I have yet to get around to sampling this (there's only so much good eating that you can do in one place at any one time)! However, that doesn't stop me being enchanted by the window displays through the city, which combine Aachen's twin passions: food and horses. When we were there, they were in the midst of a tournament which involved a large Brazilian contingent, hence all the flags.

There are times when you're travelling that you just want to sink down onto a comfortable seat in an atmospheric setting and recharge your batteries: thus I found myself in the Albrecht Duerer Stube (tavern) just by the Dom in Aachen with the best part of an hour to while away before the 14:00 English tour.
There are a number of attractive looking places to eat and drink in this area, and I chose the Albrecht Duerer because I admire the artist and it looked small and welcoming from the outside (it was a brisk spring day and I was nursing bronchitis). The inside looks very much as you would imagine a tavern to have been a couple of hundred years ago (only cleaner), with wooden benches and a traditional bar. I was also charmed by the fact that a huge thick blanket was hanging across the inside of the door as a huge draft excluder which added an element of cosy charm!
Also, a big bonus was that there was no musak - and having had a liberal dose of schlager (a dire, cheesy pop music form popular in Northern Europe and akin to bad Country and Western) inflicted on me by my hotel throughout breakfast, I was more than grateful for the peace!
I treated myself to several medicinal glasses of my favourite beer, Kolsch: the glasses traditionally only have a 200ml capacity, so that's not quite as boozy as it sounds, and by far the most enjoyable self-medication I've administered in ages! I parked myself on a bench by the window and idly consulted my map and watched the world meander past as I sipped my beer, and presently felt much better!
Like most German bars, this serves a traditional menu: I didn't have anything to eat, but the plates that passed by me on their way to other patrons looked pretty good and the smell was mouthwatering.
In summer I would imagine that it's a very pleasant to sit outside.

On my first night in Aachen, I met with VTer Stef (TinyTuck) and her two friends, Alex and Alex. We had dinner at the Brauerei Goldener Schwan on the Markt overlooking the Rathaus. To eat, Stef and I enjoyed "German tapas". For a fixed price, you get a sample portion of five different dishes. I liked this choice because it afforded me the opportunity to sample a bunch of different local specialties.
One Alex was a vegetarian -- and the other described herself as a "restaurant vegetarian" (first time I heard that one!). Since most of the German tapas dishes had meat, they ordered Flammkuchen (which is a like a thin pizza) topped with vegetables.
To drink, we enjoyed Dom Kölsch. Since Aachen is relatively close to Cologne, many restaurants and bars serve Kölsch which is the local beer of Cologne.
If you want to try a few different German specialities while in Aachen, the German tapas at the Brauerei Goldener Schwan is a good choice!
Favorite Dish: German tapas - sample portions provide the opportunity to try a few local specialties in one meal.

For lunch on my second day in Aachen, I stopped at Leo Der Bäcker & Konditor which is a café/bakery chain in Aachen. I ordered a baguette with raw mettwurst and onions. While the minced pork in mettwurst is raw, it is preserved by curing and smoking. I have never had anything quite like it before, and it is quite tasty.
The bakery portion of Leo has many delicious bread, pastries, cakes, and other desserts. I didn't try any, but they looked delicious.
Favorite Dish: Baguette with raw mettwurst and onions

Although this wasn't the first restaurant we ate at in Aachen, it was the first where we ordered typically German food. I like the pub feel of this place. With lots of dark wood and big comfy booths, it had a homey feel.
Favorite Dish: Bryan got the schnitzel which was served with french fries and I had a sausage (forget what kind of "wurst" it was, served with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. And some German beer, of course!
