Right at the start of Pontstraße ,just off the Marktplatz, the main thoroughfare for most bars and cafés in Aachen, is Egmont. A quaint café with old decor.
Option of sitting indoors or out, even in the winter they provide blankets and heaters.

Typical selection of Pils and Weißen, perhaps a Kölsch, but they also have a decent selection of Belgian beers, something rare in Germany, though Aachen is right on the border.
They have about 12-20 Belgian beers depending on the availability, all for 3.80€.

Aachen is a beautiful city right on the border of Belgium and Netherlands, a great stop on your way to from either or going to/from Köln.

Great place to be - especially because of the great selection of Belgian beers. They themselves don't offer much food, but can eat from restaurants in the area. The atmosphere is much that of an old Belgian pub. At times, they have bands playing, and in summer, when you can sit in the street, it is quite entertaining watching all the people crowding down the famous Pontstraße.
