Hamburg – 5 places to eat & drink in St. Pauli.
No matter where in Denmark you live, northern Germany is never too far away for a short weekend getaway. Just a couple of kilometres over the border, spread out along the shores of river Elbe, lies Hamburg, one of the country’s hippest cities that entertains with music events, exhibitions, shopping opportunities and waterfront festivals. I put together five suggestion for where to eat and drink in between your activities – in Hamburg’s coolest neighbourhood St. Pauli.
Without reservation, it will be difficult to find a brunch spot on weekends. However, you may be in luck at Café du Port (Hein-Hoyer-Straße 56), a cute café that celebrates the French lifestyle with bowls of milk coffee, fresh baguette and breakfast served on trendy etageres (vegan options available). We can also recommend the cakes and pastry. (Only cash!)
There is no shortage of coffee places in the area but we can recommend Hermetic Coffee Roasters (Sternstrasse 68) as it is not only cosy and quiet, but they also roast the beans themselves and offer everything from espresso to cold brew as well as tasty cakes and pastries.
There’s gotta be something for the sweet tooth! Joschi (Neuer Kamp 19) has a small selection of homemade ice cream ranging from unusual flavours like plum and cinnamon to classics like vanilla.
Can’t decide between Japanese and Viertnamese? No worries – head to Ume no Hana (Thadenstraße 15) which has a mix of Asian dishes on the menu to satisfy both Ramen-lovers and Pho-supporters. You also find rice and noodle dishes, summer rolls, gyoza and a selection of vegan dishes. Have a refreshing homemade lemonade and indulge in the Asian cuisine. (Only cash!)
No better way to end the day then with a drink at the waterfront. Check out Strand Pauli (Hafenstrasse 89) for some extra holiday feeling. Grab a sun chair and watch boats floating by while sip a cocktail or ice cold beer.
