I just had very good scrambled eggs with tomatoes, cheese, and warm toast on the side. Every thing looks and tastes good. I also ordered a glass of fresh orange juice. The atmosphere is cool, clean, light music in background and the prices seem reasonable. I'll definitely come back here for breakfast if I'm in the neighborhood. Finally I tried... More

A delicious African Tomato Soup (lots of flavor) And a cake that at first sight looked ordinary but the taste... JUST YUM. I'm coming back for sure for that Cherry Tart with White Chocolate that I saw 😋

This is a very cozy and nice coffee place in Altona, Hamburg. It has a small kitchen, so the food make take a bit long, mainly during very busy hours, but it is totally worth the wait. Either for a brunch (their english breakfast is amazing!) or for an afternoon tea, you find here a great selection of nice and... More

Peaceful interior, friendly staff, tasty good-looking food, good drinks. I really enjoyed my dish (Herzhafte französische Cakes), but the portion size of that excellent side dish of salad and vegetables on my plate was smaller than what I see here in visitor photos. At the time of day we were there (Saturday noon), it was not too busy, maybe 10-12... More

The wait for the breakfast was so long, it took us 1:30 min to receive our order and it was not that special to wait for pan- cakes and French toast... The only thing that was good is the attitude of the person was good.

This was my second time at this restaurant and I have to say it is really good, even though the "week menu" from last time was a lot better, u can order breakfast anytime! (Which for me its always a good thing). It's also worth mentioning that the portions are not so big, so take that into account. The waiters... More

Came on a Wednesday and the place was quickly full at 10AM. On week ends I would recommend to make a reservation. The food was fresh & good. I took scrambled eggs & fresh fruit salad. I added bacon for another 2 euros (not sure about the amount). The bacon was a bit dry but besides that the food was... More

Ok breakfast, good cakes and good sandwiches. Service can be very slow, but if you are not in a hurry that is fine.

Whenever in Altona, it is always pleasant to frequent the small little cafe's along the road, von der motte being my favorite if it is not already jam packed with people. Great coffee, tasty bites and a warm cozy atmosphere make this place the top choice, especially on chilly afternoons.

Description
We love good food. And we know that in hectic times like these we all need good brain food so that body & soul are functioning. That's how we came up with the idea of slow fast food. Besides our favored All-Day-Long breakfast at the weekend, we focus on fine-dining-salads and sandwiches which you can individually order by choice on a special menue card and we offer as well small international dishes which recipees we have picked on our travels from all over the world. Come for coffee and cake and you will discover cakes which you might not have heard of before. Our favorites are the sweet potato cheesecake and the Hawaiin "Kauai" Carrot cake made with carrots, pineapple, coconut and other great ingrediants. Yummy - Yummy! If you are on the run you can get everything to go. We wrap it up for you so you can enjoy your favorite soup, salad or cakes later... We are based in Hamburg Ottensen, just around the corner from the hectic streetlife. And will be happy to see and serve you - come chillaxing with us!
