"Café Schmidt Elbe" Hamburg is surrounded by seafood restaurants and industrial harbor buildings. I love it for its delicious cakes and its port vibe...

Surrounded by seafood restaurants, industrial harbor buildings and shops selling fresh fish, you will find this café right across the harbor. Just like its location, Café Schmidt Elbe has a really maritime, Hanseatic touch. Under the high ceiling you will see sails from small sailing boats, there are anchors on the cookies and the café is styled in a beautiful, simple mixture of shabby chic and industrial design. On the menu, you will find a small selection of non-sweet food like quiche or baguettes, but I mainly like to go there for their huge variety of wonderful, tasty cakes, cookies and tartlets, which are displayed in a showcase, so you can take a look at them before ordering.

This is a great place to enjoy a delicious piece of cake and the flair of the harbor offside the rather touristy area of Landungsbrücken. You can even watch them bake their pastries. And by the way – Café Schmidt also offers nice breakfast and ice cream and they sell their own bread and espresso.

The Walrus Bar – Treasure island

"The Walrus Bar" Hamburg won't become a museum - instead, it has a whole different, young cocktail culture. It seems like it's the city's hot Tinder point.
