This is going to be an image heavy post, but you’ll enjoy it. I’ve had a post about Hoover & Floyd in the backlog for some time now.
This is a great little (and I mean little) cafe in the Glockenbachviertel, but it feels more like an Oma’s cozy, Alpine-chic-funky living room. The main room has a large dining room table and there is a smaller room off to the side, complete with gold brocade wall paper and a couple of two top tables.
My first vist was a zillion years ago for a friends birthday party who rented it out for a small geschlossene gesellschaft (private party) birthday celebration. I remember sitting around the table enjoying glass after glass of Prosecco and eating really good, freshly grilled paninis that were served heaping on artisinal-Italian looking platters. Excellent.
Years later when my husband and I were looking for somewhere to host a brunch after our Standesamt (civil wedding) ceremony, I remembered this place. It would be perfect. We met with the owner, a warm, slightly offbeat lady who put together a really nice lunch for us. Paninis, coconut pumpkin soup, goat cheese, honey and red pepper canapes. It was lovely.
If you’re ever looking for a place to host a small, private celebration or just want a quiet afternoon coffee or cocktail, I can’t recommend this place enough.
