I had a business lunch with a colleague a few days ago - we met in a plush café with velvet sofa and chandelier. A business partner invited me a while ago to Northrend - destination? A café with armchairs and tablecloths. And suddenly, all around me, only coffee houses seemed to open up, which, besides coffee and cake, had one thing in common: their cosy living room character. I wonder if it's the season. What do you think?
What makes the cosy living room character?
Also, it can be velvety. Anyway a big fashion trend this season! (Attention: Gift-Idea-Alarm!!! Velvet bags, velvet shoes, velvet gloves etc. But look forward to my mail with gift ideas. I have some fine suggestions for you. Soon to be found at this point:-))
In any case armchairs belong to it. Even a sofa has to go into a good coffee shop. Then the way is paved for a cosy get-together. There shouldn't be a shortage of cosy lamps. Not newfangled, cool with clean design. No, she prefers the kind that every grandmother used to switch on in her apartment in November, when it got dark at four o'clock in the afternoon on some days. In the past as now.
Who of you likes November? Hands up, don't be shy. Because I think this month is fabulous. Why, you ask? It's wet, windy and dark. Mostly all at once. Uncomfortability to the power of three, so to speak. I dare the steep thesis: No comfort without the ugly twin Un-. So the wet November always comes into our lives with its better half, the cosiness.
When I'm on the road at the moment, then please, the cafes may be neatly equipped with materials that radiate warmth like a wooden wallpaper and velvet-covered furniture. Where can you find Frankfurt's four most cozy cafés?
· „Café in luck“ A small restaurant with neighborhood character with a delicious breakfast. Yellowed photos of people who used to live in Nordend are stuck on the walls. Furniture mix of Art Nouveau and Shabby Chic.
Gluckstraße 17, Tel. 069 95016817, Tue-Fri 8-17, Sat/Sun 9-17, Mon day off, Seating: 44 indoor/30 outdoor, Kitchen: German
· “Hemings Coffee“. At the back of the coffee house, it is particularly cosy without creating a feeling of confinement. The wide armchairs invite you to lounge around. Of course, the view of the Main bank from Sachsenhausen is also priceless. Super-friendly, unobtrusive operation. Tip: Try the homemade cake!
Frankensteiner Straße 25, 60594 Frankfurt; Mo-Sa 9.30 to 21 o'clock, Sun 10-20 o'clock
· Mainkai Café. Not to be outdone in kindness. The chocolate cake is a sin, the cheese cream cake anyway and at noon always absolutely reserve, otherwise you get no place on the velvet benches. To fall in love with: the location in the historic city centre directly on the Main.
Mainkai 15, 60311 Frankfurt; Mo.-Fri and holidays: 10-21 hrs | Sat and Sun: 09-21 hrs
· Café Maingold - The own slogan “vierzimmerküchebar“ is program. If you move in here to drink coffee, you don't want to go out anymore. And this is certainly not due to the bad weather, but solely to the cosy atmosphere. Praise the cakes in the display? Gift! The winding rooms alone are worth a visit!
Zeil 1, 60313 Frankfurt; Tuesday to Thursday 12-24 h, Friday to Saturday 12-1 h, Sunday and holiday 10-21 h, Monday rest days (1 November to 1 March)
