In the middle of the scenic street called Schulterblatt in Hamburg there is “Transmontana”, a small Portuguese café. When the sun shines you can sit at one of the countless tables outside on the Piazza and have a great view to the alternative Rote Flora (check the Rote Flora article). Watch the fashionable, stylish as well as alternative crowd with big sunglasses.
Inside it is very cosy, but sometimes a bit noisy during rush hour. A neighbourly, Portuguese family built up this fine café-place, which has a simple though one of the best independent breakfasts in town.
A delicious and tasty combination is the individual filled toast or croissant and fresh orange juice. The “Galão” (Portuguese milk-coffee) is not the best, but it is the local drink here.
Try the very sweet but original, traditional “Pasteis de Nata”. The service is friendly and in not-busy-times they tell you more about the family pictures behind the bar.
Oh, and by the way, in the evenings don’t miss the Sagres (Portuguese beer).
