GA listing : These cafés in Bonn are perfect for early risers

If you are an early riser, this is just for you! These cafés in Bonn, selected by us, offer croissants, coffee and fresh bread rolls at (very) early hours. For those who are already up or still on their feet come daybreak, here is an overview of where you can go.

Café Breuer

Construction workers, trade fair visitors and a regular customer who arrives punctually at the door every morning at 6 a.m.: When Café Breuer in Oberkassel opens at 6 a.m. during the week, it is still pitch dark outside in winter. Guests can choose between five breakfast menus, says owner Margret Sauder - whether large, small, for two people or a French breakfast with croissant and café latte. The team of four bakes fresh rolls, various types of bread, cakes and pastries in the on-site bakery. On Sundays, it opens an hour later, but still early enough at 7 a.m..
