During the day „Die Herren Simpel” is a classic breakfast café with a good variety of breakfast and snacks. The coffee is great! During mornings you’ll find a calm place here to enjoy the “Herrengedeck” (cake and hot beverage). In the evening “Die Herren Simpel” is a classic bar with cocktails, beer and wine, small snacks.
The ambience and interior kindly stand out from the crowd of the Schanze. It is a bit too scenic and hip sometimes, but a great chill-out area with different compartments. All guests are relaxed and everybody does their own thing. By the way, here is W-LAN, too!
The staff is different like the weather in Hamburg. It’s like playing the lottery. Sometimes they are fast, friendly, careful guys, but sometimes the clueless “I-have-forgotton-your-order-in-the-first-second-you-opened-your-mouth” temporary employee works on my nerves. So, help yourself, and order at the bar, especially on weekend, when it is crowded.
I really adore the big cherry blossoms behind the Bar.
BTW: Ask the staff for an English menu.
