Der Backer Eifler is a worthwhilee Breakfast in Leipziger Strasse
May 2019 • Couples
With nearly eighty locations throughout Frankfurt and surrounding areas it is almost impossible to go a day without seeing the Red and Yellow name of Backer Eifler, their branded packaging noted on streets and even in the hands of Hotel or Restaurant staff at Michelin-starred places.

Originated in 1921 when Josef Eifler opened up shop at Eckenheimer Landstrasse 86, and now in its third generation under the direction of grandson Gerhard, it has been through steady expansion based on principles of in-house baking that the brand has been growing since 1960, a visit to the Leipziger Strasse shop on Tuesday at 06h00 finding several items warm and prices fair beginning with first bites of fluffy Bread topped with melted Cheese and Bacon.

Still offering several of Josef’s original recipes, but also home to innovation from certified Master Pastry Chef Gerhard, it is continuing savory that customers will find everything from cavernous Croissants finished with Malt to proper Pretzels or those filled with Butter, not to mention full Loaves intended to be taken home and used in Eifler Cafes to make Sandwiches.

Not a place to pass on sweets, though an Apfelkreppel was unfortunately a bit sparse with Fruit and the “Nusskringel” slightly dry, better bites came from a seasonal Danish loaded with Custard and Strawberries while the version with Rhubarb was even better as the perennial Plant’s sourness found its foil in buttery Streusel.

Many Small Shops and Family Run Businesses
Oct 2017 • Couples
What I really like about Leipziger Strasse are the small shops lining both sides of the streets. A couple of real highlights can be found here: Metzgerei Waibel, probably the best butcher in Frankfurt, or Käse 34, the best cheese store for me in town. And many many others.

One of the Finest Local Streets in Frankfurt
Sep 2016 • Couples
The Leipziger is a local main street that invites with a sheer endless number of family owned little stores around fine foods (Waibel butcher, Sultan Veggies & Fruits and the famous Käse 34 cheese store or the Kochhaus to just mention a couple). It is worth a visit and walking up and down one will discover even more.

Great place to shop and eat out
Sep 2016 • Couples
One of the best streets in Frankfurt! Experience great local un-touristy flavor. Eat out. Shop.

Many specialty shops:
jewelry and accessories created by young upcoming designers
esoteric books
Asian and Turkish Fruits’n’Vegetable markets
traditional coffee-roasting establishment
wine shops

For those who like a bargain: Zalando outlet, Woolworth

For organic food shopping: Alnatura, Basics, Reformhaus - they also have Rewe, Aldi

For eating out: restaurants from all over the world: Tibet, Persia, Thailand, Vietnam, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Spain, American,... They have a lot of places where you can sit outside in the Leipziger Strasse and around this street. They have cheaper restaurants and more expensive ones, so you will surely find something for your taste.

Bakeries: They have more bakeries and cake shops that you can count. Conditorei Eube makes amazing cakes! Kröger's Brötchen has places to sit outside and great bread. Eifler is a very affordable bakery that also has loads of space to sit inside. The coffee roasters Wissmüller have a cool place to sit outside (and take home some coffee as well)

Take a look at the backyards, you will find some gems for shopping and eating there as well.

Every Thursday they have a market for fresh produce from local farmers. Amazing bread, sausage, vegetables, fruit,...

Easy to get to with U6/U7, station "Leipzigerstrasse" or take the U4 to "Bockenheimer Warte" and just walk 3 minutes.
