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!

“Great place with wonderful food”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

We had breakfast here on a sunday and couldn't have picked a better spot. The food and service are great as well as the atmosphere. Portions are nice and large and not expensive at all! Definitely come in the weekend for the delicious cinnamon rolls. They also have a large variety of cakes, muffins and pies, which we unfortunately didn't have room for, so we'll have to return some day for more tasty treats!

“Very good cakes”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I am not a cake person, but we had birthday cake here, and yes they are as good as people say. The savory dishes looked appetizing too but we did not try

“Start with Dessert”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

You might just want to – the Maracuja Cheesecake really is that good! There aren't just great sweet things on offer however, the freshly made savory dishes are just as imaginative and tasty. Aside from that, the atmosphere is contemporary and airy thanks to plenty of glass giving a sun-facing view of the popular shopping neighborhood. The owners are both present and involved in providing a sense of personal quality and friendly ambience.

It must have been your "Start with Dessert"-comment that a couple ordered 4 pieces of cake for themselves and had no leftover to take with them in a doggy bag....;-) Thank you for your great comment - and yes Passion Fruit Cheesecake and Sweet Potato Cheesecake are right now the favorites in our café....Hope we see you again soon. Warm wishes, Steffi von der Motte!

“Love this cafe-resto!!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

What a wonderful cafe/restaurant in Ottensen! They serve very good quality food made and presented with love - breakfast till late, as well as cooked meals (lots of vegetarian options.) The two ladies who own and run it are very friendly. You can sit indoors and enjoy the wonderful music (jazz, singer-songwriter, etc) or sit outside on a quiet semi-square - very peaceful yet just steps away from the happening part of town. A wonderful alternative to the mass-chains as well as the trend-places in Altona.

“Fantastic cafe”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Located outside the city center, we did have a little trouble locating the cafe, but it was certainly worth the walk! Simple breakfast menu with a nice variety. The lunch specials sounded great. Friendly staff and excellent coffee drinks. Cafe was not too crowded and we enjoyed a nice meal. The slogan is "fast slow food" and it certainly lives up to that expectation.
