Poppy seed cake and tea in Karstadt, Cologne

Poppy seed cake and tea in Karstadt, Cologne

Karstadt, Breite Straße 103-135,
50667 Köln

The Karstadt department store in Cologne was great. The department store restaurant was big with fresh food and many chefs. There were 8 varieties of smoothie, 4 varities of soup, fresh meat that you picked and they cooked for you, 10 varieties of vegetable side dish, fresh veg they stir fried for you, 4 varieties of potato, fresh fruit and puddings (fill a bowl for 3 euros) and at least 12 varieties of cake all for under 3 euros a slice. The tea was loose leaf and in a mini chest of drawers. Each drawer had a different variety and you filled up your ‘tea egg’ with it and away you go. We came here twice and each time the cake was beautiful and the tea good too. This photo is from our visit on our last day in Cologne. The cake is poppy seed and it’s thick and filling and tasty and not as sweet as our cakes which makes it all the more satisfying.

Teapot? No.
Leaf tea? Yes, from a selection of 9. I had black tea with orange flowers and it was beautiful.
Milk jug? No, but fresh milk available from a dispenser.
Price? 1.80 euros.
Cake? Oh, the cake! So much delectable cake.
Go again? Yes.

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
