URBAN Food experiences are both local and global. Because every dish is local somewhere.
We love food. And drinks too. Bonus points if it’s distinctly URBAN. From artsy entrees to contemporary cocktails. On our plates, inspired dishes from around the world. Bangkok Curry, Marrakesh Wok, Istanbul Noodles.
At our tables, locals mingle with travellers in a genuine atmosphere. All curated and created by passionate and experienced hosts. Each interaction accented with a distinct touch. Cologne hospitality and flair.

URBAN Breakfast Bag
It’s like a beautiful morning, wrapped it in a to-go box.
Morning. A fresh start. Your first daily chance to treat your body right. Water. Stretching. A healthy meal. All of the best things to equip you for your day. Whether it's full of meetings or city explorations.
The URBAN Breakfast Bag concept tailored to meet the needs of always-moving guests. Custom, nutritionist-approved breakfasts. Ready when you want them.
Gone are the heavy European-style breakfasts. The predictable buffets. Arrived are daily customisable individual breakfasts. Morning meals rich with what you need most. Nutrients. Vitamins. Minerals.
URBAN Breakfast Bag. Eat it in The Loft. Savour it in your room. Take it out into the city and enjoy it picnic-style. Each one made to suit each particular guest. Gluten-free. Lactose intolerant. Vegan. It’s in the bag.
Choose a fruit-heavy menu. Or bite into hearty, healthy whole grains. Each will provide energy and vitality. Banish the sluggish over-full feeling that comes with buffet breakfasts. This is the healthiest start to the day.
Dine around the World
Complex flavours, meet uncomplicated and unfussy dining.
The sun goes down. Time to focus on the evening’s pleasures. Food and drink to linger over. To comment on. Our URBAN Food dinner menu focuses on genuine recipes. Some might be familiar to you, others new discoveries. And future favourites.
Each month, we feature a handful of dishes. So that each gets more care and time. And with a constantly changing seasonal menu, we can offer the highest quality.
We believe there’s a connection between fine spirits and fine works of art. Both inspire. Both are intoxicating in their own way. And each complements the other. That’s why we’ve invested so much energy in perfecting our drink menu.
Local meets cosmopolitan.
Carefully balanced cocktails feature local, artisan spirits, mixers and ingredients. Some that can only be found in Cologne. Featuring recipes dreamed up by our imaginative and passionate bar team.
For late evenings in Cologne, our chefs craft a variety of satisfying bar snacks. Prepared fresh and delivered to the Grab n’ Go.
Step into the inspired home of URBAN Food. Where a varied (and healthy) selection of local-meets-global offerings are always ready… and waiting for you.
LOCAL COFFEE BAR
Every URBAN LOFT has a locally famous coffee partner. At Cologne, it’s Schamong.
Cologne’s oldest coffee brewery. Schamong is well-known locally. And they make an energising addition to the atmosphere in The Loft.
There’s a lot to like about Schamong. Not least the award-winning flavour profile of their local brew. Last year, Crema magazine named them ‘Roastery of the Year’. And the accolades keep coming.
Schamong also shares URBAN LOFT’s conviction that the best things in life should be sustainable. And ethical. All of their coffees are fair trade. Which means you can sip with the satisfaction of knowing you’re making a difference. In The Loft, you’re part of the solution.
From coffee to kuchen… The Loft has it all.
URBAN LOFT Cologne also partners with Törtchen Törtchen. A local confectioner with a strong following. And an open mind.
Törtchen Törtchen is famous. And a little bit fancy. They do all of their baking here in Cologne, but you’ll find their cakes and pastries across Germany. Of course, they don’t get any fresher than here. At the source.
Their signature macarons pair beautifully with a Schamong espresso. And we have plenty of other sweets for you to sample. Törtchen Törtchen is operating a pop-up here in The Loft from November 2020 to January 2021. They’re also hosting a bakery workshop during the Christmas season.
Come for the Cologne Cathedral Christmas Market. Stay for the cookies. The beds are just a bonus.
Grab & Go
Life moves fast. So do you. That’s why our Grab & Go is open 24/7.
Cologne is incredible. We don’t blame you for running off. So much to see. But before you go: fresh, healthy food awaits at the Grab & Go. Get local with regional offerings and snacks around the clock.
When there’s no time to sit and savour at URBAN Food, simply pick up something just as thoughtfully crafted at the Grab & Go.
No supermarket crisps or stale sandwiches there. Grab & Go offerings are freshly made with seasonally unexpected ingredients. A taste of our sensibility and ethos.
Take the URBAN concept with you. An ever-changing menu. Ripe with options to suit every diet – without skimping on taste. A dedicated team. Truly healthy, genuine and uncomplicated food. For even the busiest customers.
Discover local producers in The Loft. Learn about our commitment to small batch, artisanal products. Our passion for introducing visitors to our favourite only-in-Cologne eats.
We’re committed to changing our snacks, sandwiches and other delights on a monthly basis. Which means you can taste all the flavours of the region. URBAN LOFT regulars always discover new edible treasures when they opt to Grab & Go.
Free Water & Coffee
Life comes from water. Creativity from coffee. Both are free in The Loft.
We want guests to feel at home in Cologne. Like they’re part of community. Connected to the city. That’s why we curate URBAN food and partner with a local roastery for our premium coffee offering. But we also offer some free essentials. For those times when you just need to hydrate. To get down to business.
Our complimentary coffee and water corner is like an office water cooler. Except it’s in The Loft, and not in an office. It’s a place to congregate between tasks. To share ideas and inspiration. We believe these things should be free.
