Of course, there are always the tourist hotspots that are quickly found. But If You prefer to go out for coffee like a Local, read on-today I will tell You where we meet Konstanzer for a Coffee.
The „City Kid” is probably the most loving Café in Constance for me. When you get in, you immediately feel comfortable in the light-filled, Swedish-style, somewhat winding Café in Paradise. Each Table looks different, both in Size and Design. Here and there lies a Lambskin or a few Pillows on a Bench or chair. In fine Weather, you can also sit outside in one of the small Seat Niches and let the Sun shine on your Nose. In the big Counter there’s everything you could wish for – from different Cakes to sandwiches and Salads, even a Day’S soup can be eaten. Everything Also ice cream is available in the Adjoining room – mhhhh, delicious. Simply a Feel-good café! The City Child is a few Minutes „walk from The Seerhein Just behind the University of Technology, Economics and Design (HTWG). A Visit can be combined with a Walk over the Bicycle Bridge to the other Shore in the Herosé park. The Centro Guest house Is about the end of The city. 15 Mins. More Information can be found here.
NikOlala-Café Cult & Creatives
Café Cult has a typical Artistic atmosphere. All over The shelves on the Walls, on the Windowsill and the Counter Stands all possible Frills, which gives the Room its Coziness. Even a Vespa stands in the middle of the Café. Here you can make yourself wonderfully comfortable and pass off a rainy Afternoon. You can also sip a Glass of Wine here or have a small Snack. The Owners and Staff are funny, open-minded and nice and always like to take a few Minutes to chat about everything possible-for example, Sock design;) In addition, there are lovingly restored Furniture and secondhand clothes to buy here, as well as Jewellery, Cards and all sorts of Decorative Items. It’s worth a Visit! The Centro is only about 7 Minutes away. More Info here.
The No elf is a small Café for the Gourmets among us. The Owners specialise in Coffee and Wine-there is only the Best of the Best here! The tiny Half-timbered Cottage at Gerichtsgasse 11-hence the Name-offers a cosy and hip atmosphere for a tasteful and visually artful coffee or a carefully chosen Glass of Wine. You can of course get all The Information about the origin of the Coffee Beans and The Wine. From The Centro Guest house You are walking in approx. 10 Minutes here and can stroll through the old Town and over Münsterplatz. The Connection with a Visit to the Minster is a great place to combine. More Information about the No elf can Be found here.
Not a very conventional Café-but right at the Source to the best Beans. Do You Know this wonderful Smell of freshly ground coffee? Yes, this is exactly what you like when you enter the Coffee Roaster Konstanz. Here you can not only buy delicious Coffee from different Places in the World, but also enjoy a Cup, together with selected small Treats. If you want to train on the Topic of Coffee, you will also get Your Money’s Worth here: Coffee Seminars, Baristas and Roasting Seminars are offered, in which everyone can participate. If you just want to enjoy the Coffee, you can also just get detailed advice from the Staff and take personally tailored Coffee home with you. Give it a try! From The Centro Guest House, You can walk around. 6 Minutes here. More Information can be found here.
If you prefer the typical café atmosphere, The Voglhaus Is just around the Corner from the Coffee Roasting industry. Admittedly, the Voglhaus Is now quite well known and therefore often full-but even we Locals are still often drawn here. The Voglhaus is somewhat unconventionally furnished-you sit on the Wall in Window Niscs, for Example, or on wide Steps. There are few normal Tables. This and the fundamentally prevailing Busyness, which can be observed wonderfully silently from here, make the Visit to The Voglhaus a unique Experience. In Self-service you get delicious hot or cold Drinks here-even self-created Smoothies or Sodas (depending on the Season) are on the Menu. Small Snacks and Cakes for in between should not be missing, of course. Also lactose and gluten-free. When Eating and Drinking, attention is paid to Sustainability and Health. A small Department store for Decoration and Fashion is also connected to the Coffee. Events take place here again and again-Concerts, Readings, Lectures, discussions, small Art, Etc. There’s so much going on in The Voglhaus That I can’t describe it all here. It’s best to check here for yourself! Centro Guest house Is just a 5-minute Walk away!
The Café Exit in Paradise is not that long … It is precisely for this reason that it is a Testimony of Quality that it is already popular and often visited by the Constanzers. Cleverly located on a Street corner with a large Forecourt, you can eat your Coffee and a Piece of Cake or a Sandwich, either indoors or outdoors in fine weather. Also nice breakfast can be had in the Café Time, which does not bear its Name for nothing. A little away from the big Hustle and bustle in the Old town and the many Tourists you can really sit and enjoy here in Peace. So If You don’t Feel like the Hustle and Bustle anymore, then come to the Rest! The Centro Guest house Is about the end of The city. 17 Minutes here. You will also get to know one of the oldest Residential Areas of Konstanz, Paradise. More Info: Time out
The Eugens Bio-Café is not only a Café, but you can also eat properly here. And everything from organic Farming. In a rustic Atmosphere, however, you can also get very tasty Coffee and Cakes-gluten-and lactose-free on request. Since the Eugene Is very popular, there is always something going on here. But not in a negative Sense-the upcoming and walking Guests make up a large Part of the Coziness of the Eugene. Here you feel invited to Linger by the friendly Staff, the admirable, loving Décor and the Opportunity to just sit back and watch the upcoming, seated and walking guests. Directly opposite there is the Eugens Patisserie, where You can get the delicious Pastries, Cakes and even Soups and Salads to Take Away! My Recommendation: Try the delicious Quiches in the Eugene! In just approx. It is a 3-Minute walk from Centro Guest House. More Info: Eugene’S
If You want to take a slightly longer walk, cycle or simply take a Visit to the Horn lido, the „Hörnle,” or the Spa, then it is worth stopping by the Seelig restaurant In fine weather. On the modern Sun terrace directly on the Water you have a wonderful View over Lake Constance and can either enjoy Coffee and Cake or also eat properly. I recommend a Walk along the Lakeside Road and along the Shore: How to get there! More Information can be found here.
In terms of location and Size, the Pano is definitely worth noting-but I have to say that we Konstanzer are now mostly avoiding it, as the Tourists love it and fill it. The Pano is beautifully lovingly furnished and very cosy-provided you get a Place. It has only recently been expanded and is now arguably one of the largest Cafés in Constance. The Offer leaves nothing to Be desired: Hot and cold Drinks, Snacks to Eat and even Ice cream can Be found here. Located Directly on the Market Site, Centro guest house is a 2-minute walk away. More Information about the Pano here.
Actually restaurant rather Than Café, the Holly’s is still worth mentioning because of its Location and its delicious Ice cream. Here you can sit wonderfully on the Shore of the Lake and, if you like, have a Coffee on the Terrace or have a bite to eat. In fine Weather for me the best Option: You get an Ice cream and sit on a Bench or the Wooden Platform in front of the Lake Constance Forum right next to it, enjoy the View and let your Legs dangle. Holly’s Is a great choice after a Walk through Herosé Park along the Seerhein or, of course, if You’re attending an Event at the Lake Constance Forum. In approx. It is 25 Minutes from The Centro Guest House. More Info: Holly’s
Where we are already on the Rhine is also the Beach Bar of HTWG: Here You can enjoy a Coffee, Iced coffee or even a cool Beer in the Summer with your Feet in the sand in a Deck chair. All, of course, with a view of the Seerhein. On this Occasion, You can also take a look at HTWG, formerly the Konstanz University Of Applied Sciences. The Beach bar is about to run from The Centro Guest House. 17 Mins. More Information can be found here.
So, and because this is important for summer: Here are my favorite ice cream cafes in Constance: In the City, I recommend the Nicoletti ice Cream Café. From The Guest House Centro it is a Stone’S Throw: Only 2 Minutes and You have an Ice cream! You can either sit here on the Market Place or get an Ice cream on your Hand and walk through the Underpass to the Harbour and enjoy the Lake. Those travelling on the other Side of the Rhine should either grab an Ice cream at Holly’s or go to the Pampanin ice Cream café, as already mentioned. There you can get a delicious Ice cream and then walk down Theodor Heuss Street to the sea road and sit by the Lake Or go for a walk. So, that’s it first of me! Enjoy Your Coffee or ice cream and your Time in Constance:)
