Bruno Pieters, Veronique Branquinho, Hussein Chalayan. The owners of Heimat also created the fashion fanzine Mode Depesche winning the Lead-Award 2008 for best fashion photography.
Vintage & Rags
Unfortunately California Vintage closed its doors, but second hand lovers can still discover nice pieces at Vintage & Rags where I lately found a nice blouson.
Alte Wallgasse 2a
For gourmets there's this little, tiny, pink patisserie that offers extremely sexy cakes in a dazzling array.
The most delicious ice cream is sold at this charming, authentically retro parlor near Rudolfplatz. Our recommendation and favourite flavour: coffee crunch.
Zülpicher Str. 9
The best Schnitzel in town is served at Oma Kleinmann. A Lynn & Horst must. No further instructions needed.
If you like to enjoy an afternoon tea in a truly old-fashioned and cozy interior, sitting in armchairs and watching senior citizens, the place to be is Café Wahlen. The retro inspired little coffee house Café Franck is also a must.
