The Special Connection

Good coffee at the fish market

In their pretty café at Fischmarkt, Katja and Jean-Baptiste Fraydenberg serve delicious food and speciality coffee in a relaxed atmosphere.

The name "The Special Connection" runs like a red thread through the concept of the cosily furnished café at Altona's Fischmarkt. The home towns of the two operators are several thousand kilometres apart, different cultures and educational backgrounds shaped them, and yet they are united by their idea that a café can be a place like a home, where you are well looked after and which gives you strength to care not only for yourself but also for others. And so the concept extends to the café's guests, whom the Special Connection team provides with healthy and delicious food and good coffee.

Regional products and seasonal creations

To ensure that enjoyment does not come at the expense of the planet, the operators focus on regional products, seasonal creations and a speciality coffee that is grown and harvested with respect for people and nature and gently roasted.

In a prime location on the Elbe

The menu includes many vegetarian and also some vegan dishes, and there are also treats for visitors with gluten intolerance. When the weather is good, guests can enjoy their food and drinks with a view of the water. On colder days, it's also great to sit inside between tables and counters in a chic wooden look.
