What do Klaus Kinski, Cary Grant, delicious pancakes and a film cutter have in common? You’ll find them all at Bande à Part creperie in the Sudstadt in Cologne.
If you like crepes, movies and all things French, you’ll love this cosy little cafe in the Sudtstadt. Tucked away in the backstreets, Bande à Part is an homage to Jean-Luc Godard’s film of the same name, and the movie connection doesn’t end there. The first thing you’ll notice when you walk in the door is an old fashioned analogue film cutting machine. The walls are covered with film posters from the golden age of cinema, and the red wallpaper and slightly shabby furniture will make you feel like you’ve entered an old fashioned cinema foyer.
With Klaus Kinski leering down from a poster for Fitzcarraldo, and Cary Grant looking handsome, it’s hard not to gaze at the walls, but as soon as the food arrives you’ll find it hard to tear your eyes away from your plate. Not only do they serve delicious sweet crepes with a choice of fillings, they also have a wide variety of savoury buckwheat crepes with all kinds of tasty toppings. Everything is fresh and served with style. The service is friendly and the prices are reasonable. It’s a great place to take your kids and is ideal for a Sunday afternoon snack.Bande à Part, Silvanstr. 1, 50678 Köln
