One of the most beautiful places in Frankfurt is around the “Alte Oper” (Old Opera House), a very impressive building with a picturesque water fountain and romantic lanterns around. Here, you can enjoy the sun almost until it sets.
Until last year, there was no spot to have a coffee or snack without being surrounded by a champagne-sipping crowd as a lot of champagne bars have gathered here. But with the opening of “Papa Enj”, located as the last one in a row of restaurants, we can now enjoy our weekend lunch at this carefully designed venue very regularly.
Concerning drinks, the coffee is great, as well as the rhubarb spritz with fresh mint leaves. Wines are a bit pricey, but well selected. For food, we often go for the tuna tartar with Avo (€ 17/ € 29 for 2), but the burgers with homemade fries are the bomb as well. Before leaving, be sure to try their cheesecake (€ 5/ € 9 for 2) with your espresso.
The menu includes several constant dishes, but there are frequent changes according to the time of the year- and be sure to have a look a their daily offers as well.
If you travel with kids, this place is perfect as well. No cars in sight, besides the two bobbycars Papa Enj offers for their small guests :).
Painting books and crayons are available on a child-sized wooden table to keep your little ones busy for a while. No need to mention that the staff is very attentive to kids’ needs, as well.
