The Most Beautiful Cafés In Düsseldorf
It is a hot summer this year in Germany and Düsseldorf in particular. The weather is perfect to stay in town and enjoy what the city has to offer. Düsseldorf is a vibrant and lively town with a lot of bars, restaurants, café, breakfast and brunch opportunities and a lot more! Today I would like to show you around my hometown and tell you about four of the most beautiful cafés in Düsseldorf, which are my favorites by the way. All of them have one thing in common, a seating area outside so you could enjoy these summer day and nights to the fullest.
1. DreiRaum, Oberbilk
One of my favorite places for eating and drinking is the Café and Bistro DreiRaum, in the quarter Oberbilk. I discovered this little gem many years ago when I used to live in this area. My flatmates at that time and I spent a lot of time there with chatting, eating and drinking. Since that time it is one of the favorite bistro and café in Düsseldorf.
The inside with a ceiling, which reminds on a flowstone cave, is unique and cozy. The decoration and interior is a kind of shabby chic. And the summer like patio area outside together with a friendly, and attentive staff will give you a feeling as if you were somewhere else. With a small but delicious menu, a few homemade lemonades, and a breakfast-offer on weekends, it is for me a place where I love to be. Maybe some memories of former times with my flatmates are also responsible. But I am happy that, after all those years, it did not lose any of its qualities.
Short facts: address: Volksgartenstr. 15, 40227 Düsseldorf; opening hours: Mon – Fri 12 p.m.-12 a.m., Sa -Su 10 a.m.-12 a.m., breakfast only on weekends, closed on public holidays; web: www.dreiraumbistro.de
2. Oma Erika Colonialwaren 1925, Flingern
The atmosphere at “Oma Erika Colonialwaren 1925” is an excellent example of the typical flair of the quarter Flingern. Old heavy chairs and tables, pretty flowers, and colorful porcelain dishes makes it cozy and makes you feel being home at your grandmother´s.
You can have coffee, cakes, and bagels and if you also like breakfast. Personally, I love the cakes. Especially, the poppy-seed cake is my favorite, and I recommend to taste it. A few more recommendations you will find in my post about “Kaffee and Kuchen bei Oma Erika.“
Short facts: address: Hermannstraße 34b, 40233 Düsseldorf; opening hours: Mo – Fri 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Sa, So, and public holidays 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; web: http://oma-erika.com/
3. Tonhalle, Kaiserswerth
Another favorite for hot summer days is the Tonhalle in Kaiserswerth. A little bit outside of Düsseldorf, this rustical beer garden is the perfect place for a cold fresh beer and homestyle-cuisine. They use fresh and regional ingredients for their homemade menu. Even the beer is brewed by themselves. Expect typical and authentic rhine-ish cooking and culture. Of course, cake loves will be happy, too!
And afterward, you can explore the historic area of Kaiserswerth and the ruins of the Kaiserpfalz. Watch out for the guiding signs for the historic town walk alongside the most important historical sites in this area. The river Rhine is also nearby. Does not sound that like a perfect little getaway for a Sunday afternoon?
Short facts: address: Klemensplatz 7, 40489 Düsseldorf-Kaiserswerth; opening hours: Mo – Su 10 a.m.-1 a.m.; web: http://tonhalle-kaiserswerth.de
4. Sugarbird Cupcakes, Old Town and Düsseltal
If you love sweet little cakes, cupcakes, in particular, the Sugarbird Cupcakes is the place to be for you. You can find the sweet rose café in the Old Town of Düsseldorf or the quarter of Düsseltal. From cupcakes, mini cupcakes, to macaroons and cake pops, everything that makes a cupcake lover happy is available there.
I love to stop by for a quick cupcake or sit down for a while on a chilled afternoon by coffee and cakes. They also offer a breakfast buffet from 10 a.m. They also offer a baking workshop where you can learn how to create these small but delicious pieces of cake yourself. If you like it easier you can also buy them for takeaway or place an order in the online shop.
Short facts: address: Heinrich-Heine-Allee 37, 40213 Düsseldorf & Rethelstr. 153, 40237 Düsseldorf; opening hours: Mo-Su 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; web: http://www.sugarbird-shop.de/
Now you know where you probably could find me. Drinking coffee and eating cake on a Sunday afternoon, or have a relaxed breakfast with some friends, or spend a sunny day in a beer garden. Although new locations open their doors and show us their delicious food, there are a few ones where I could go back over and over again. The above ones are indeed my favorite cafés in Düsseldorf and I recommend to check them out by yourself when you come around.

I must admit, I have never actually been to Düsseldorf. Reading your articles like that, I realize: I underestimated this city 😉
Hi Magdalena, I understand, before I moved to Düsseldorf I only knew Königsallee and the “longest bar in the world” and thought that´s it! But after so many years I know that there is a lot more you can do. You should come around and visit 😉
I spent a lot of time in Duss for work last year, but unfortunately no time for coffee breaks in the center!! I’ll need to go back! Have you tried the Japanese restaurants there? Some really amazing ones.
Hi Katie, too bad that you couldn´t try some of them. Yes, there are some really great Japanese Restaurants. Which one is your favorite? KiKaKu or Yabase are awesome and favorites of a lot of Japanese people who live here… In general, the Japanese community here is pretty amazing.
