Hamburgers have been exploding in Hamburg over the last years, and there’s quite a lot of creativity, also in the meatless versions – seitan patties, wasabi-mayo, rice buns, tofu-peanut-banana patties . . .
P.S. Meat-eaters: my meat tæster got a bullet point for each featured burger spot, so there’s some advice and tipps for you here too.

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.

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.

This Breton restaurant along the canals is a perfect choice for any occasion. The array of galettes are mouth-watering, accompanied by traditional apple cider, and some homemade caramel-salt crêpes for dessert. This is one of my very favorite recommendations for dinner in Hamburg: unique, different, and always delicious.

From Eimsbüttel to the harbor: You’ll find comforting alpine cuisine that, amongst ripped-apart pancakes (Kaiserschmarrn) and tender Rindergulasches, make heart-warming Knödel and (also vegan) Spätzle.

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.
