Oberhafen-Kantine

Snack stand steeped in history

The Oberhafen-Kantine has a history. For 72 years, Anita Haendel cheered hungry men in the leaning house on the port with her handmade home cooking.

After her death, various owners have tried out different concepts, but none of them has had the same kind of success. Until Tim Seidel and Sebastian Libbert decided to take over the (really!) crooked brick cottage a few years ago and to revive Anita's concept. And that means that everything is homemade and freshly cooked in this snack stand - potatoes are peeled by hand, meatballs are kneaded by hand. The menu is once again based on the former recipes that made this business famous. Here the spirit of the tradition lives on.

sustainable experience

This rather lopsided (in architectural terms!) restaurant is a traditional canteen where emphasis is placed on regional and seasonal products. The chefs know exactly where their ingredients originate from, as the restaurant has established a strong network with local, sustainable farmers and manufacturers from the region. This is definitely the place to be if you would like to try truly authentic Hamburg cuisine cooked to traditional recipes.
