Being slightly geeky, my friends and I sometimes like to set up camp in a cafe and sit and write, read or study. My friends like to write novels because they are clever clogs, and I tend to write more standup comedy these days.
We’d heard about a cafe/restaurant called Margarete – a slightly upmarket place was a great place to chill out. Situated near to Dom Romer, it was very easy to get to on the way home from work.
So there were many good points and many bad points about Margarete. Let’s run through them -
GOOD POINTS -
The food was really good. I had the quiche and Boyfriend had the eggs and green sauce. The green sauce here was easily the best we’d tasted in Frankfurt so far.
The drinks were good.
I love the interior – and the big open windows at the front were really nice since it was a roasting hot day.
BAD POINTS -
The service was terrible. Even worse than the normal German level of service. I can’t even put it down to the place being busy – it just wasn’t.
It’s expensive. 7 euros for a quiche the size of my palm? Gaaah.
The card machine chewed up and spat out two cards. It just wouldn’t accept them – for no reason at all. That was pretty annoying and embarrassing.
Despite the bad points, I think this would be a cute date night place – the couple could even bond over the poor service! They do proper meals here too but you may need to take out a loan to be able to afford it…
I’d go back, but only on a day when I’m ok with really poor service.
