Serving up summer vibes at Hamburg’s legendary Bistro Toni

Hamburg's legendary hipster hotspot

As the proprietor of Bistro Toni – one of Hamburg’s most legendary hipster hotspots – Antonio Fabrizi, is something of a creative maverick, and the proud owner of a fwip Portobello ice cream machine. 

So what’s the world’s smallest plug and play ice cream parlour doing in a bistro like Toni’s? We find out.

A taste of summer all year round 

Situated on Osaka Lane, Hamburg, Bistro Toni aims to give customers a memorable experience all year round: for Toni it’s always the vibe, the company, and the atmosphere that matters.

Toni comments,

In moments like these it is only the here and now that matters... and the feeling of belonging.

But that’s not to say Bistro Toni doesn’t serve up fantastic food and drink – it has along-established reputation for excellence. And given that Toni and his team want to infuse Hamburg with that summer feeling all year round, it’s little surprise that great-tasting ice cream is on the menu – a la fwip!

Yes, a single spoon of ice cream lights up the same pleasure centre in the brain as winning the lottery, or listening to your favourite music (don’t believe us? Read the science!). 

Toni and his passionate team with their very good friend Portobello

Being a discerning gentleman of Italian origin, the gelato bar is set fairly high for Toni.

Yup, his passion for food extends to ice cream – which must be kept at the optimum temperature, have a dreamy creaminess, and a precise sweetness.

That’s one reason why he chose to install a Portobello commercial ice cream machine.

Sumptuous simplicity 

At the press of a button, our Portobello ice cream machine produces irresistible frozen yogurt, and gelato in the award-winning flavours of chocolate, salted caramel and vanilla. Every flavour is gluten-free, reduced fat, with no artificial colourings. And with vegan sorbets, including our mango sorbet winner of three Great Taste stars, there’s something for everyone.

The bistro serves everything from the classic Affogato to more experimental desserts

Pair these delicious flavours with our retro-styled, smart and easy to clean Portobello machine, and you have a winning combination. No wonder Bistro Toni’s customers keep coming back for more! 

As you’d expect, Bistro Toni also offers a characteristically creative range of toppings and presentation styles – from a single portion to an exquisitely decorated dish. And Toni stands by his ice cream philosophy: 

Happiness begins with the first taste
