Breakfast at Birds Cafe
Birds Boutique Cafe is a mildly quirky and unpretentious place to have a cappuccino. With their family-style seating around large wooden tables, you'll be tempted to strike up a conversation with a stranger next to you. Speaking of family, it's a family-owned business. Their daughter, Frauke Stegmann, is an internationally acclaimed graphic designer who makes everything from the tea cups to the creative light fixtures for the cafe. This is one of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat for breakfast or lunch (try the chicken pie), and a good example of the type of unpretentious, casual cafes you'll come across in the city.
