Around the Römer you can find numerous Cafés, souvenir shops and restaurants. There are some really good and nice places with it, but the really big surprises are almost missing. But really only almost. Because there is also in this part of the city, which is very much influenced by tourism, an excellent, because so unusual locality: The Iimori. Here, on the ground floor, influences from Japan and Paris combine to create a very special patisserie ensemble. This begins with the charming, individual interior, which is characterised by the very personal touch of the chef Azko Iimori, a real all-round artist. But the sweet delicacies on offer here are also a treat for the eye and the palate.
Whether it's their own interpretation of the classic New York Cheese Cake, the very tasty Green Tea Roll or sand cakes enhanced with Japanese cherry blossom are just some of the highlights from the extensive cake counter. But the breads and baguettes that Iimori has on offer are also testaments to first-class baking skills. So not only a visit for afternoon coffee is absolutely recommended. Also the normal breakfast or even the big brunch are always very well attended and have given the Iimori the predicate to belong to the top 40 breakfast addresses in Germany.
But that's not all: upstairs there is also a beautiful restaurant in Parisian salon style. Here, classics of Japanese cuisine are offered with the in-house touch. Whether sushi, soups or donburi - also those who like it a bit hearty can be sure that their palate will be spoiled in the Iimori. And for those who would like to acquire a piece of the house's cooking and baking skills themselves, there is the option of attending one of the baking or cooking classes that are offered on a regular basis (Dates are available HERE on the homepage).
Since August 2016, Iimori in the Old Town has had an addition in the banking district. On Mainzer Landstraße 125, near the Skyline Plaza, the Iimori Goyza Bar has opened. Here you can enjoy a quick lunch or a cosy dinner in an equally beautiful ambience. The focus here is on goyza (filled dumplings) in various variations, as well as other classics of Japanese cuisine. This offshoot is also definitely worth a visit. However, the original in Braubachstraße is a very special indulgence location due to its wonderful, multi-award-winning patisserie on the ground floor, which of course gets an "absolutely recommendable" from us.
