Coffee in Frankfurt
Naturally, the only research I did before the trip was figuring out where we could find decent coffee. Because we all know, coffee first!
Instagram was a great place to research specialty coffee shops in Frankfurt. I even messaged with a barista at Hoppenworth und Ploch beforehand to find out what her favorite spots were. Total win btw.
Places I tried and enjoyed:
- The Espresso Bar - This was a last minute find. Total hipster hole in the wall with a healthy crowd at all times. Loved the vibe here. This place isn't third wave but more traditional Italian style.
Before boarding my flight from Boston to Frankfurt, I bought a copy of Afar Magazine. I was super delighted to open it up and find an article about Frankfurt's secret foodie spots written by the queen bee herself, Ruth Reichl. After reading this piece I decided to follow her advice and walked to the Kleinmarkthalle for one of Frau Schreiber's sausages.
Spring in Frankfurt
So you're probably wondering if I did anything other than drink coffee and eat sausage. I did! Adam and I love to wander around new cities on foot to get our bearings and see all the sights. (in between coffees and sausage, of course). The weather on this trip was absolutely perfect, sunny skies, warm temps, and flowers in bloom everywhere we looked. So, walk we did. All over Frankfurt.
Our favorite neighborhood, the Nordend, reminded us of the Back Bay in Boston.
When Adam was rehearsing or playing concerts, I went to a museum or wandered around taking photos.
One of the best things about touring with the BSO is hanging out with other spouses that I don't normally get to see. Cassie and I had a lovely time at the Museum of Modern Art!
