Stop and savour
Coffee to go? We say non! Eating and drinking on the move is a terrible mistake. Worse: it’s a faux pas!
As savvy city dwellers, we’re all for a laisser-faire attitude. But you have to draw the line somewhere. In matters of style, certain compromises can’t be brooked. If we catch you grabbing a bite or a sip while on the go, or even consuming a hot drink or meal in mid-stride, we’ll have no choice but to sit you down – literally – and teach you how to enjoy a café, or even two or three, properly. On a chair. You’ll need a sizeable slot in your schedule. It is possible, of course, to consume food and drink elegantly on the move. While crossing the Atlantic aboard a cruise ship, for example. Or in the first-class dining car of the Orient Express. Perhaps even in the back seat of a Citroen SM.
If hunger or thirst should strike during your sojourn at Stadthöfe, however, you’ll find endless eateries, cafés and bars with charming service, lovingly decorated tables, comfy chairs, roomy chaises longues, discreet niches with supple seating – slow-food options galore.
