We show that the real cohomology algebra of a compact toric variety of complex dimension 2 is determined, up to isomorphism, by the combinatorial data of its defining fan. Surprisingly enough, this is no longer the case when taking rational coefficients. Moreover, we show that neither the rational nor the real or complex cohomology algebras of compact quasi-smooth toric varieties are combinatorial invariants in general.
