What are the best foodie spots in Friedrichstadt?
If you have got a craving for Thai food and have an occasion to celebrate, Sila Thai on Bahnstraße should be next on your list. With stunning decor and an extensive menu, this restaurant is an ideal location for a gathering. It’s a bit on the pricier side but is worth every Euro.
ALCHEMIST Bistro & Bar
Right across the road is the Alchemist, a beloved neighborhood eatery with a guaranteed delicious meal. With limited seating, it is recommended that you have a reservation during the weekends, but during the summer months, there is additional seating outside.
A more casual restaurant is a popular Vietnamese restaurant Scaramanga’s, located near Fürstenplatz. Funky interior inside and a variety of choices on the menu – what more could you ask for?
Balli Döner Kebab & Vegan Kebab
Craving a casual kebab? I recommend Balli Döner on Graf-Adolf-Straße. The falafel is particularly delicious! There are also vegan kebab options.
If you and the gang are searching for a brunch spot, Rosie’s proves to be a popular spot due to its variety of breakfast options- from sweet to savory.
Finally, for the largest pizzas you ever did see, L’Osteria simply can’t be beaten.
The best bars in Friedrichstadt?
Boothby’s Classic Cocktail Bar
Blink and you’ll miss it- Boothby’s Bar is a jazz bar that you could easily glance past as you stroll down along Hüttenstrasse. Expect elaborate and tasty cocktails, a friendly dog, and the chance to sit in a cozy booth and feel like you’re being transported to a bygone era due to the stylish decor. Not to be missed.
Bar Ellington is also a popular haunt for many Friedrichstadt residents. Located near the Hauptbahnhof, it opts for minimalistic decor and a great cocktail is guaranteed.
The best places to sit down and drink a cup of coffee?
Manko, which doubles as a co-working space, comes highly recommended.
Lina’s Coffee on Fürstenplatz is also one of Friedrichstadt’s draws. Think highly Instagrammable vegan and gluten-free dishes, refreshing smoothies, and good coffee.
