Lovers of Scandinavia and the colorful world of Astrid Lindgren – listen up! In Ottensen, the cute café Saltkråkan brings some Northern flair to Hamburg. The café is furnished like you would imagine a summer house on the island of Saltkråkan itself – light-colored furniture, blue and white interior, wooden tables and chairs… on the wall there is a marine map of the island of Saltkråkan and the surroundings.
At Saltkråkan café, you can have a delicious lunch of tunbrödrulle (flat bread filled with salmon or with a mustard dill dip). Try their freshly baked cakes, too! Or – on colder days – have a soup with bread for lunch. At Saltkråkan, it’s not only delicious coffee you can drink and cake you can eat: the café also sells Scandinavian goodies and souvenirs. For those who love liquorice, Saltkråkan has a big variety of the Scandinavian sweets. I, the biggest fan of the Finnish childrens’ book, personally go there for their Moomin cups, boxes and other cute little things. At Saltkråkan, I always feel at home – no matter if I stop by for a quick coffee or have an extended lunch there.
