Burrito Place
“Great & cheap Mexican street food in the midst of St. Pauli (red light) district”
  • 37 locals recommend
Café
“10 min walk: The first thing one notices about Knuth, even before walking in, is that the restaurant’s atmosphere seems to ooze out through the windows and light up the whole street with lively chatter and happy customers. After walking in, it is clear that this is a neighbourhood favourite where locals come to read one of the many magazines and newspapers that are offered while enjoying a hearty cake with coffee served in a huge bowl. Another great thing about Knuth is that the kitchen stays open during the day, and the selection of daily plates always pleases due to their variety.”

Fast Food Restaurant
“You should at least have a look and go there for a snack. People who work there are very much representing original people from Hamburg. A bit loud, not too friendly on the first view, but with a big heart.”

German Restaurant
“Amazing, cozy, romantic and unique place at beautiful sit outside or inside spot in a just local almost non touristic street. YOU HAVE TO go there Perfect to have a glass of wine and hours of talks. Neither cheap nor expensive. Perfect to combine with a drink at "clockers" since it's next door (see below)”

Pizza Place
“Scene Pizzaria. Very small and nice spot. You can choose out of a lot of ingredients, what you´d like to have for your pizza. ”
  • 37 locals recommend
Bar
“Best burgers in Hamburg! Get the Stingy Gonzales (it's with guacamole) and maybe instead of the normal fries that come with it, ask if they have chili cheese fries and then have a nice slice of new york cheesecake for dessert. For digestion, ask for a pickleback. And if you see Ulli, Hester or Tim, say Kris says hi.”

“Ich war zwar nicht im Café Schmidtchen Elbe, sondern in dem Café Schmidtchen Barmbek. Es liegt in der Friedrichsberger Straße und ist somit fußläufig innerhalb von 15min von derWohnung zu erreichen. Das Frühstück ist vielfältig und die Preise sind moderat. Die Location ist sehr schön gewählt und das Personal ist auch total freundlich. ”
