April Night-Out

Our next get-together will be this coming Friday (20th April) from 7pm onwards at Café Großstadt, Paradiesplatz, Lindau (http://www.grossstadt-lindau.de/). If you have a look at their website you’ll be able to bring up the menu, which should tempt you to come along with an empty stomach! Großstadt have updated their food selection and even though it was good before, it seems to have got even better. Wraps, bagel burgers, salads, baked sweet potatoes, pasta, as well as a good dessert choice and the best variety of any restaurant in Lindau for vegetarians and vegans. I hope that lots of you … Continue Reading →

January Meet-Ups

First up on the 2018 agenda is the Saturday-Morning-Coffee-Club with a bit of a twist this time…..a traditional Bavarian Weißwürst-Frühstück, at Hotel Engel, Schafgasse 4 (http://en.engel-lindau.de/).

December Meeting – A festive farewell………..

Our final meet-up of the year, the Festive Farewell, will be on Sunday, 17th December, at 12 noon in Café Collodium (https://www.cafe-collodium.de/). The café is opening an hour early, especially for us, which is a perfect way in which to gather and have a drink and a bite to eat, a chat and a laugh, before we all go our separate ways for the holiday period. If anyone would like to round off their trip to the island with a final visit to the Hafenweihnacht (Christmas market), it will be open for the last time on that Sunday, until 9pm. … Continue Reading →

October Get-Togethers

September Meet-ups

Our Coffee Club meeting this month will be this coming Saturday (16th), from 11am onwards, in Café Großstadt, Paradiesplatz, http://www.grossstadt-lindau.de/ It looks as if the weather won’t be nice enough to sit outside, so tables are booked inside. They have really nice breakfasts on offer and there’s lots of choice for vegetarians and vegans too, so I hope that lots of you will decide to come along and have a chat after (or before) you do your weekend shopping. For all those that are new to the area, the farmers’ market at Marktplatz (by the two big churches) is on … Continue Reading →

August meet-ups

I hope that this finds you all happy, well and enjoying the holidays, even if we’re not enjoying the optimal summer weather right now. To be honest it feels downright autumnal at the moment and I’ve had to dig out a pullover from the cupboard already  Hopefully things will take a turn for the better soon, in time for our Coffee Club meeting in a few days time. Natalie has made a couple of little changes this month, to give us a mini-break ‘abroad’, with the meeting going over the border into Austria and moving from its usual Saturday … Continue Reading →

May meet-ups

With the cooler temperatures that we have at the moment, Natalie, the hostess of the Coffee Club, has booked tables for the forthcoming Coffee Club meeting in the snug surrounds of Café Vogler, Inselgraben, for Saturday, 13th, from 11am onwards. If you fancy a restorative coffee, tea, hot chocolate or maybe something a little stronger, after doing your shopping, then come along for a chat and a laugh. Our evening meeting this month will be taking place on Friday, 26th May at “37°”, Lindau harbour (where the quiz night was held in January). It’s particularly convenient for anyone coming by … Continue Reading →
