They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I couldn’t agree more.
A good breakfast or brunch is my favorite meal anyway. And I bet yours will be too after having tried breakfast at Harms&Schacht (H&S) in Hamburg’s pretty quarter of Winterhude. The last time I had been there was years ago, but believe me that wasn’t by choice. They only serve breakfast on weekends and I only ever made it into town for a day or two during the week up until now. Dear am I grateful I could make it this time.
H&S is located by a beautiful canal, the Osterbekkanal, off the lake Alster and on a good day you can enjoy your coffee at water level on their beautiful terrace. We were out of luck this time as it was pouring so we avoided the terrace and chose to snuggle up inside for a feast. The weather was dreadful.
The interior is charming too, and hardly something to complain about. The light is cozy and the modern interior is comfortable and includes a lounge area. The menu is full of fresh, wholesome and organic dishes. We opted for Sourdough bread with cheese (it’s a German classic) and muesli with strawberry puree. There no such thing as a bad choice here in any case.
Oh and if you can’t make it for breakfast don’t hesitate to visit any other time of the day. They also serve tasty lunch time snack and have a range of good wine and cocktails. Check it out here.
