New year, new café: Heimathafen in Fürstenberg.
- Good coffee. ‘Nuff said.
- Functioning wifi. Non-trivial.
- Plug sockets next to tables.
- Nice ambience. It’s in a modern, grey, nondescript concrete building, but the interior is quirky and welcoming, with mismatched old furniture and hipster lighting.
- Very nice food, including options with egg, which are not that easy to find in Konstanz. Below is the avocado toast I had. (Don’t @ me, I’m a millennial, and anyway I already bought a flat.)
- Annoying music. We literally had Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley a bit ago, as well as a cover of Toploader’s Dancing In The Moonlight.
- In the middle of nowhere. It is hard to overstate just how far this place is from civilization, nestled as it is between the industrial part of town and a yawn-inducingly tedious residential area. It takes two buses to get to it either from where I live or from the university. You’d hardly stumble upon it by accident – though it is worth the trip, if you plan to spend a decent amount of time there. (And it’s within spitting distance of Konstanz Fürstenberg railway station, for all the use that is.)
- Closed on Tuesdays. (But my Tuesdays are full of meetings on campus anyway, so I don’t care.)
Price of a regular black coffee: €2.80.
Overall rating: ☕️☕️☕️ (3/5). Honestly, it’d be well above 4, were it not for the bad location.
