Guests at Kropka can see, feel, taste and experience what happens when a woman lives her dream. The charming little café in Hamburg's Generalsviertel district impresses with the nuanced flavours of its food and drinks, select interior and informal atmosphere.

One fine day, Dortmund-born Katrin Koch, aka the owner of Kropka, decided to open her own café. After years of creative work in advertising agencies in the Hanseatic city, she came to the life-changing realisation: I want to do my own thing and enjoy going to work.

After finding the right location to realise her plan and converting it herself, Katrin did what she wanted to do: Pursue her work with joy, vigour, dedication and success. Everything at Kropka was and is done with care and love. From the renovation and design of the rooms to the composition of the team and the selection of products on offer.

The coffee for Kropka comes from Cycle Roasters, a small roastery in Lübeck. The bread used to make the delicious sandwiches is supplied by the Zeit für Brot bakery. They bake their bread using traditional methods in a wood-fired oven and without any additives, using only grain, flour, salt, water and their own sourdough.

The milk is provided by the happy cows from the Reitbrook dairy farm. Milk that is neither homogenised nor standardised. And you can taste it. The eggs are laid by the even happier hens from Hornbrooker Hof, and Katrin's mum makes the jam in her own kitchen in Dortmund. The wine comes from the St. Pauli wine shop, which was named wine merchant of the year in 2019.

The menu is vegetarian or vegan - with the exception of the bacon for fried and scrambled eggs. We think that's great. And while enjoying mushroom bread à la Mama Katrin, grilled cheese sourdough bread, vegetarian breakfast, shakshuka, wild herb salad and other delicacies, we realise that good food is possible without meat.

The cakes, which are home-baked and simply delicious, provide the necessary sweetness. In addition to breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake, you can meet up in the Kropka wine bar on Thursday evenings and spend the evening with a good drop of wine and snacks. It's just the right programme for a chilly November evening.

And for those who like a Christmassy atmosphere, you can soon get in the mood for the arrival of the man with the white beard at the stand in front of the shop with mulled wine, hot chocolate, roasted almonds and other delicacies.

With Kropka, Katrin has fulfilled a dream and given us a café where people who inspire with quality, hospitality and enjoyment work together. We think that's great!
