Pfaffen is located right in the Altstadt. Its roughly 300 m from the Heumarkt Haltstelle and is the tall orange building across the town square.

Pfaffen's atomsphere is typical of Rheinland brewpubs. Old sanded tables, standing tables, and wood decor galore fill the room. The place is very clean, orderly, and makes for a good drinking atmosphere.

Service was adequate but did not impress me. Incorrect drinks were brought twice and the bill was incorrect. No big deal but the waiters (kerbies) usually are very professional and flawless in brewpubs around Köln.

Pfaffen has some of the better Kölsch in Köln. Also they have a small wine list if someone at your table would prefer that.

The menu for food is large and from what I saw portions were large and the food was artistically decorated while still looking like food and not a piece of art.
