Schnitzel, Bratwürste and Apfelstrudel

Time to talk about food.

Thanks to TripAdvisor, we never found any restaurants or cafes we didn’t enjoy.

So I wanted to recommend one cafe, one restaurant and one bar I liked.

Cafe – Cafe d’Azur (Nürnberg)

My friend and I came across this cafe the second day in Nürnberg on our way to McDonald’s. It’s located on the slope between St. Sebaldus Church and Kaiserburg.

We got a cup of coffee, croissant with ham and cheese, and waffle with banana and chocolate syrup.



Croissant with ham and cheese may sound boring but it was honestly hands down one of the best foods we tried in Germany.

The croissant was really buttery, ham and cheese absolutely delicious, and the scallion sprinkled on top of the croissant added extra something to the dish.

We ended up ordering another one of these croissants. Plus it was 2.5 euros


I don’t have much of a sweet tooth in the morning but the waffle with the banana and the chocolate syrup was still very delightful.

My friend and I talked about how lucky we were to have found this cafe instead of going to McDonald’s for some McMuffins. We also talked about how we would recommend this place to anyone who goes to Nürnberg.

So here you go! I highly highly recommend this place.

Restaurant – Bratwursthausle (Nürnberg)

Bratwursthausle is probably famous for both locals and tourists. It is located right besides St. Sebaldus Church.

While this place lacks a variety of food (sausages only), they make up for this ‘issue’ with great sausages…

There are bread and pretzels placed in a basket at each table. They’re not for free (my friend and I originally thought they were, so we ate tons of pretzels) but they are so delicious.

Nürnberger bratwürste with mashed potatoes

Nürnberg is famous for the Nürnberger Bratwürste, which are finger-sized sausages. To be honest, I’m not much of a sausage kind of person, but these were so full of flavor. Absolutely loved these.

Potatoe soup

My friend and I ended up coming here for both evenings (and befriended a wonderful grandpa… more on this coming soon!).

The price was reasonable, and for two girls who wanted a full “German experience” while we were there, this place gave us just that. The atmosphere was so different from what I normally experienced in Seoul, and I loved it.

Again, highly highly recommend this place.

Bar – Gaststaette Bei Oma Kleinmann (Köln)

We came here the very first day we arrived in Köln. The people here were incredibly nice. We ordered schnitzel, beer and crème brûlée.

We tried our first German beer… but because I can’t really tell the difference between different beers, it was alright.


Schnitzel! We had beef schnitzel with potato salad (I think…!)


They had crème brûlée, and I’m a sucker for one of these, therefore I had to get it (had to).

This place really gave us a good first overall impression on Germany. You can only pay cash here, but I still want to recommend this place!

Here are some other foods we tried throughout our trip that were also really delicious :)
