In the category cutest morning hotspot ever: Pauline in Hamburg, Germany. We talk about Frühstuck in German. Ontbijt in Dutch. Desayuno in Spanish, Petit-dejeuner in French and Breakfast in English. It’s the first meal of the day, and often skipped by many people. But never by me. I love breakfast and I always eat it. 75% of my days it’s seasonal fruit, yoghurt and my very own muesli granola (without additional sugars). On Sundays it’s often croissants, eggs, jam, butter and freshly squeezed juice. But for me breakfast is never left over pizza, supermarket-muffins or a greasy sandwich. When on city trip or getaway I like to stay in places excluding breakfast. So you can discover the local foodie hotspots by yourself. That is exactly what we did in Hamburg (Germany) last month. Pauline Café & Bistro was, together with Nord Coast Coffee Roasters, our favourite! On the Neuer Pferdemarkt 3, near the Rindermarkthalle, the old abattoir (slaughterhouse) and the very cool Marktstraße, you will find Pauline Café and Bistro.
Located on the cutest square in a neighbourhood, not far from the center (but less crowded) of Hamburg.
The interior is old fashioned in a good way, cosy and characteristic.
I love these ‘Granny’-chairs.
Tea at Pauline.
Juice and the menu: a ‘real’ little book.
Pauline for breakfast. What to order?
One can go for croissants, French toast, fruit salad, homemade cereals with vanilla cream, vegetable sticks, vegetable spreads, cheese, butter, farm bread, honey, goat cream cheese, tomato basil, fig mustard, smoothies, ham, salami, scrambled eggs, salmon, apple-cinnamon porridge and more.
Everything is cute and picturesque at Pauline, without being ‘over-styled’ and ‘fake’. I love it.
Fresh fruit salad called ‘Paulinchen’.
Scrambles eggs with crispy bacon.
Bread and croissants.
The old abattoir (slaughterhouse) of Hamburg.
This neighbourhood, around Marktstraße and the Rindermarkthalle is very nice, colourful and full of little shops and creative people.
Little square with street art (what the Germans like, click here for a blogpost about Street Art in Berlin) near Marktstraße.
Cute little shops.
And characteristic façades.
Pauline Café & Bistro is open daily for breakfast, coffee, cake and (early) lunch. On Sundays they do their very populair Brunch. Reservations recommended!
