Hearty open faced sandwiches that the owner Katrin perfects to her childhood memories. Kropka is a one time special in Eimsbüttel, rustic-cozy, delicious and casual. Perfect for breakfast, specialty coffee and cake, laptop-working, lunch, an early dinner – or just to chat with friends.

June 17, 2017 / Bordeaux & West Coast

Bordeaux is the French town of wine… but I was more interested in the avo-toasts, matcha and coconut lattes, vegan gluten-free fudgy chocolate cookies and organic ice cream parlors across from cathedrals and churches on plazas, merged by narrow stoned alleyways and beautiful copper lamps . . . and I’m keeping myself short.  Plus wild beaches, spectacular sanddunes and the coasts of oyster farmings are just an hours train ride away.

A third wave coffee shop with some of the best breakfasts in Hamburg. All is dainty, delicious and there are vegan and gluten free options as well. They’re famous for their fluffy, soft waffles, my favorite being the lime-mascarpone one. But it’s also the perfect spot for a work date, or leisurely breakfast with avocado quinoa fritters or a lox-red beet toast.

These smoothie bowls make you feel like you’re literally sitting at a white sanded beach or watching surfers. They’re deliciously home made with awesome granola and surfer vibe!

DALUMA is one of my two favorite breakfast spots in Berlin (out of many dozen great looking ones). They have the one of a kind superfood bowls, mouth-watering smoothies, cold-pressed juices and an amazing tahini pomegranate bowl.

Hamburg used to be scarce on açai bowls… Not anymore! I tested all nine places, all quite different from one another but also very different from what I excepted. . . Here I tried to describe them each by their consistency, taste, toppings, and price. You’ll see which ones are my favorites for which reason.

♦ Ottensen ♦ Poached Eggs ♦ Avocado ♦ Pancakes ♦

I have the impression that the new standard for breakfast places is avocado toast with poached eggs, at least in Germany that’s the new  discovery.  It seems to somehow qualify an eatery to some higher level – or maybe it just makes me think that they have some higher concept… a better one than just nicely assorted fruit, three different kinds of German rolls and samples of jam and cheese… however nice it’s made up to be, it’s just not my cup of tea.

In Berlin I wouldn’t say this is a very new thing, but in Hamburg the only avocado & poached egg combo I’ve had was in my kitchen – until, I came upon RAIN Cafeatery in the heart of Ottensen.
