Restaurant Bauernstube is located inside the Niedersachsen Hotel and offers wonderful, quiet also outdoor tables if weather cooperates, with view on Hoexter's market place. Almost no traffic. Food and service are nice too. Though I'm not much of a meat lover I do like their delicious carpaccio. One big minus: Smoking is welcome.
Most important about Schlosscafe Corvey, is of course the Corvey Abbey, where in the Schlosscafe is located. Have yet not visited the Corvey Abbey itself but its Schlosscafe and its marvelous surroundings; the park with benches and beautiful plants in blossom, the church, a little lake, beautiful alleys with old trees and lawns in between. Mom and me took tea at the cafe though the cafe's lack of friendliness on that day, was a little rude. Their fruit salad was ok, and the tea too. Restrooms are clean. A huge parking place is provided. The alleys, the roads, the Weser river, and of course the Corvey Abbey, make a stop by whether on bike, or on cycle or in a car worthwhile. This spot might be a bit out of the way to get there by walking.
Restaurant Knusperstube at Flair Hotel is located in front of Hoexter's train station. Very cosy place. Particulary during fall, one can enjoy their Zwiebelkuchen und Federweisser, called in English fall wine and onion tart, which to eat at the beginning of fall, is a German way to greet the season of fall. Now, regarding this German tradition, I was searching for recipes and found great informations by Tracie Marquardt:
Federweisser is the fall wine at many harvest and wine festivals across Germany. Although the original idea was to be able to sample that season’s wine without having to wait for maturation, these days Federweisser is usually made with grapes unfit to produce high-quality finished wines..this wine is actually a lot more alcoholic than it tastes. It is quite difficult to find Federweisser in the US.
The onion tart is a rich fall indulgence made with very basic ingredients:
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons yeast
1 tablespoon water or milk
½ teaspoon sugar
¾ tablespoon butter at room temperature
about 4 ½ pounds onions
1 ¼ cups Crème Fraîche, sour cream, or cream
½ pound bacon
salt, pepper, and caraway seed to taste
Stir the sugar and yeast into ½ cup warm water and let sit for a few minutes. Combine the flour and salt in a medium-sized bowl and then add the yeast mixture and the softened butter. Lightly knead the dough and form a ball. Let the dough rise on a floured counter for at least 30 minutes or until it has doubled in size. Prepare a baking sheet (in Germany they often use something like a deep cookie sheet but a quiche or pie pan would work as well) with parchment paper. Knead the dough once more and then roll it onto the baking sheet. Pinch along the edges to form a barrier to keep the filling from spilling over. Let the dough sit again for 10 to 15 minutes. Peel the onions and slice thinly. In small portions sauté the onions in butter until they are soft and translucent but not at all brown. Cube the bacon and quickly sauté it. Again, try to avoid letting it get too brown and crunchy. Stir together the cream and the eggs and add the salt, pepper, and caraway seeds. Spread the cooled onions and bacon evenly over the dough and then pour the cream mixture over everything. Bake the onion tart at 400° F for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.
Cafe Pammel is wonderful located on Hoexter's Market Place in front of the Nicolai Church. The view is beautiful. Their goodies, cakes, sweets are great, and so is their ice cream too. Really fantastic. Worth the price. They provid certain corners for smokers.
Since one never can't get enough of hot served waffles, mom and me ordered also at Restaurant Strullenkrug waffles as well. Served hot as well, with hot cherries, and cream. Delicious! Wirtshaus Strullenkrug is a very nice place with outdoor tables in their beergarden, and very cosy atmosphere. Their menu is good and pretty German. Very friendly service, and owners.
This little cafe called Wasser Inn Cafe, is part of Freizeitgelaende Ahlemeyer which at the same time awaits with fun for folks that like to do pedal boating, sailing, ferry boats, hiking, walking, or cycling tours along the Weser river, or just grilling out. Then a little further, near Restaurant Seestern, there's an opportunity to do some beach, swim, table tennis, playgrounds. Wasser Inn Cafe at Freizeitgelaende Ahlemeyer, sits on like a big boat, feels yet nice and not shaky. Service too is very nice. No long wait, and wonderful waffles with hot cherries and cream.
Fresh, healthy, and convenient food. Nice and familiar selection. Nice location too. A little far from Hoexter's center yet. Friendly service. Was surprised there they do roast the sandwhich only if you order it that way other wise you get your bread quite flabby.
Another nice opportunity to dine out in Hoexter. Yet Bistro Resi is less about food but a beautiful atmosphere, in a green, quiet location right at the theater though still in walking distance to the Market place. Service, waitress and waiters are very nice.
Perfect place for early birds as this bakery opens between 06:00-07:00. One can take a seat at the lovely, little space the bakery provids, and have a mug of hot coffee, and a sandwhich. Their breadrolls named Webos are a speciality of malt baked goods, I very much recommend.
This Location was named Bistro Resi. Now it is reopening with a new name and a new concept.
You have to go there if you want to taste excellent Cocktails and a perfect Diner to have a nice evening in Höxter
Favorite Dish: T-Bone Steak, 500g - Baked Potato mit Sour Cream
It is as Hotel Niedersachsen's Restaurant described in their broschure: We serve local and international specialties as well as light, market-fresh, cuisine and organic whole-foods. Food combining upon request. Or enjoy a selection of tasty morsels with good beer or wine at our rustic Sachenklause or Kaminothek. Extra ordinary friendly staff. Great German food. We've had Carpaccio vom Kohlrabi, Steinpilzravioli, Kalbsteak mit Spatzle, Zwetschgenpfannkuchen. All fantastic tasting.
Hoexter indeed offers many places for eating out, it's truly joyful. Personally I don't care too much about supper or evening outs, but dawns and breakfast since I'm really an early riser. Fortunately lovely bakery Engel has the perfect opening hours for early risers. Their warm and welcoming atmosphere combined with most delicious goodies, mugs of coffee (or cups to go) are the best thing to begin a day with.
Very nice, little Bistro/Bar sharing the same entry with the local Residenz Theater which is very comfortable if one likes to get a snack before/or after the play. It's a very cosy and quiet place with almost no traffic. Nice waiters/waitresses. We've had very creamy and fresh made tomato soup with herbs and garlic bread. In these days Bistro looks closed like they moved away.
Very tasty, very Italian food served by very friendly and attentive Italian staff at Hoexter's lovely Market place with the opportunity to dine outside. No traffic but pedestrians' streets only. Have had plain pizza bread and tuna salad. Mineralwater, coffee.
One of Hoexter's very cosy ice cafes just as cosy and lovely as any of Hoexters cafes, bakeries, sweets' stores like Arko. One can see ppl really enjoy themselves and taking their time. I've had some baby blue colored kind of imaginative ice cream and left the ice cafe with a happy stomach.
