A stones throw from the river and on the quieter side of Fahrgasse Straße lies this little gem! Also, it is wonderfully close to Römer, Altstadt so you can explore it but not so close that you are overrun with tourists. Moreover, I love the minimalistic feel and monochromatic colour theme running throughout the space!

They are focussed on speciality coffee. Their intent is to take their patrons on a taste adventure and demonstrate just how different different varieties of coffee can taste. With this in mind, they implement a rotating roaster concept, working with the best European micro-roasters like La Cabra, Drop Coffee, The Barn, Man versus Maschine to name but a few.

Finally, The Holy Cross Brewing Society believes it is a space where coffee people of all cultures, nations, colour, religion, age and sex meet to have their caffeine fix.

Thrir beans are always single origin Arabica coffee roasting and their preference is on light to medium roasts.

Brühmarkt

Located in Bockenheim, Brühmarkt is a top recommendation for those looking for a tasty coffee. Small and welcoming, this modern café brews up some of the most delicious java in the city. In the summer months, you can switch up your hot brew for an iced coffee. But it does not stop there. The cakes at Brühmarkt are to die for. Choose from traditional cakes, cheese cakes, and sometimes vegan variations.
