Schiffergesellschaft: Germany's Oldest Restaurant
As we were told, "Seafarers' Society" (this is how its name sounds in English) is the oldest restaurant in Germany dating back to 1538.
We sat at a long medieval table and I felt I was in a local lore museum. It was a privilege to drink beer at those "pirate tables", as I called them then.
I must say that was the most expensive beer I had ever had in Germany!...But it was certainly worth visiting that restaurant!
Picture 2: It was great sitting at those ancient tables and to drink beer. I took a picture of our merry company, but myself was left out. You can only see my glass of beer. Perhaps next time I will be in the picture.

Restaurant Meeresbrise: A breeze of the sea
Very nice restaurant, very nice atmosphere & service! Great seafood! I've had fantastic salmon & salad. Almost too big of portions. Big plus: Easy to park there. Guess restaurant belongs to Best Western Aquamarin.

Coffilio: Waht an excellent way to start the day
Sourbugger can't usually begin his day without a big steaming mug of trucker's tea, but on my morning in Lubeck I was happy to make an exception.
I ordered just the 'small' Fruhstruk (breakfast), at only 5 Euro. You can sometime pay the equilvalent of that in London just for the coffee (which is only half as good as here), yet I also had breads, cheeses, cold meats and boiled eggs thrown in as well.
A great deal, and with big picture windows and comfortable furnishings to park 'yer bum on, it makes for a great start to the day.
I can only imagine quite how much food the 10 euro breakfast must contain !
Cafe Niederegger: A world of marzipan
Niederegger Cafe provides with an abundance of marzipan and other delicacies. There are more than 300 specialities to choose from: marzipan in many different variations, fine pralines, nougat, pyramid cake, stollen cake and the finest of baked goodies. Visitors can buy from their many of marzipan specialities: it is a classical souvenir to take along or even to send from that cafe to anywhere in the world.
Niederegger Cafe has been a "Luebeck institution" for many years. In 1806 it was founded by master confectioner Johann Georg Niederegger.
In the now more than 200 years since its founding, Café Niederegger, in the heart of the Hanseatic city, has become a secret symbol of Luebeck..
In summer, Niederegger Cafe opens their terrace on pedestrian zone with a wonderful view on the Town Hall, St. Marien and St. Petri.

Paulaners: Beer and dining
I found a tip of this place in VT-pages, and the restaurant happened to be allmost behind the corner of our hotel. So we went there. It was sunday, so menu was shorter. There were some days specials for weekdays, but not for sunday.
We choosed a typical"schnitzel" of veal, and it was good. It was served with some kind of fried potatos,witch also had little pieces of ham in it.
And of course we drank Paulaner!
Favorite Dish: Must say schnitzel, because it´s what we had ;)

Hogrefe's Seafood & More: Close to the train station
Very centrally located. A large, old-school restaurant that had an attractive sprargel buffet.
Food was pretty good, service professional (no English spoken) but not a restaurant to get excited about.
Favorite Dish: Seafood

Buthmanns Bierstuben: Since 1697
Well I have no idea about it. The Board "Seit 1697" attracted me and I took a photo. So I guess I should have put this tip rather in the Things To Do list. Its pretty close to the Guenter Grass house in the same street. Its a historical beer bar I guess.
My best choice
Well, this is something for people who really prefer some quick, fatty but delicious food. I am very fond of Doeners and so while on the road and really very hungry, atleast in Germany, I desperately look for a turkish Doener stall. I found one at Luebeck too. Just behind the Lindenplatz where you find the Statues of Bismark and Kaiser Wilhelm II, you have to cross the road. A really big one (with bread) cost us 3 euros. Well, I am very diet conscious and always want to lose some weight : ))
Taj Indian Restaurant: Curry!
That Friday evening British tradition - curry. Spotted this place while walking around the city and was too tempting to miss.
Most things on the menu were familiar to us though the style of serving a little different to Indian restaurants at home.
Friendly welcome and fast service.
Food well cooked and very tasty, Mrs Bonio had several vegetarian choices.
We were fairly early (19:30) and had the place almost to ourselves, has this tradition not caught on in Germany yet?
Cafe Affenbrot: Cafe Affenbrot
A special treat for Mrs Bonio, a visit to a vegetarian cafe. Lunchtime and very busy, a good sign, varied menu too choose from and several daily specials too. Good tasty food and an organic beer to go with it, maybe these vegetarian places are not so bad after all?
Reasons I love Germany number 99...
Stadtbackerei is a popular cafe/bakery type place. We stopped at one branch near the Rathaus for coffee and cake and later for lunch at another branch on HolstenStrasse. I'd strongly recommend this place - the food was very nice and was excellent value.
On Street Shop: German Sausage fear the wurst!
Whilst hunting down some of the famous Lubeck Marzipan I came across a neat little shop/stall selling the famous german cuisine the fried or boiled sausages (Wurst) with a crusty bread roll or potato salad. I wolfed mine down with great gusto...And then continued my hunt for the marzipan....
Favorite Dish: Frankfurter mit Sauerkraut

Cafe Calma: Mediterranean Atmosphere in a Baltic City!
Cafe Calma is one of the reasons why one can only mercifully smile at those who think Lübeck isn't worth visiting in wintertime. Wonderful place, cozy mediterranean atmosphere, good food, reasonable prices.
Cafe Calma is located in Huexstrasse, a very popular street with Lübeck students and bohemians.
PAULANER'S: DAS WIRTSHAUS AM JACOBIKIRCJPLATZ
This is a place where, according to what they themselves say, you are very welcome and will be looked after in a perfect way!
Their menu card looks great and extremely varied so I am sure that everyone can find here exactly what s/he would love having for breakfasst, elevenses, lunch or dinner......
Their menus are there for everyone to take....so the word spreads quickly: Paulaner's is good....better.....best.
