Ahhh, a café with such a poetic name (“Sehnsucht” means longing)…
Café Sehnsucht is located in the hippest street of Cologne, the Körnerstraße in Ehrenfeld (a Turkish neighbourhood that’s slowly undergoing gentrification). Walking up that street, you’ll come past a few really trendy neighbourhood shops and a super cool coffee roastery (Van Dyck, set in a former hairdressing salon). It’s really worth seeking out this sweet café – the modern German menu is changing on a daily basis and the breakfast and weekend brunch are totally amazing. Oh, and they serve Van Dyck coffee too – a very good neighbourhood spot indeed.
