Sample Hamburg’s cinnamon-dusted answer to the croissant at award-winning bakery, Kleine Konditiorei. The Franzbrötchen at this classic Hamburg bakery are award-winning morsels of sugar and cinnamon deliciousness. Pair one with a coffee for a perfect early morning fix, and perhaps pick up some superb fresh breads while you’re there; the Karottenbrötchen (carrot bun) and Mehrkornbrötchen (wholegrain bun) come particularly recommended. Kleine Konditiorei has four branches, all in the Eimsbüttel district.
