Montpellier is a student town: small and medieval, but quite international. Probably these six universities are to thank for the abundant selection of lavish avocado toasts, vegan buddha bowls, and bourbon-butter mapled bacon pancakes. These are my top tips for where to drink coffee, work and eat in Montpellier!
How could rainy, gray, but cozy Hamburg not have a porridge café? Well it didn’t till the three ladies behind Bräi established their hobby to a job. Here they perfect simple scottish porridge with unique toppings!
Each and every of Bordeaux’s specialty coffee shops deserves its own article . . . However a post for each would be too much, so this one literal post combines the whole guide in one. Read about Bordelaise roasteries, where I had my favorite breakfasts and matcha lattes, the best spots to laptop-work, what coffee shop fine-dining looks like and much more …
The specialty coffee shops in Bordeaux are what made me fall in love with the town. They are personal and keep the french culture, whilst staying a modern third wave coffee shop. Plus they can make some really good matcha, beetroot and pumpkin spice latte 😉
Banana Café is a 100% gluten-free café in Bordeaux, that serves sweet and savory food…
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.
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.
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.
