Anyway, there are some shops worth being mentioned:
If you like german bread: Cafe Ö, Marktstieg 8, Very close to the "Alter Markt", is a non-chain-bakery and cafe. They do "handcrafted", organic, whole wheat bread. Try "Dinkelvollkorn", just with some butter! That's what germans miss when they're abroad (some even prior to beer). Don't have the bread you buy cut, cut each slice yourself at "home"!!!
If you consider tea bags a crime and are in need of the real stuff: "Tee Gschwender", Hindenburgstr., at the "Theater Galerie" will give you sweet relief.
You'll find a Chucks and Vans shop at the Theater Galerie, too.
If you're into Punk, Hardcore, Ska etc. music and clothes, pay a visit to Nightmare Records, Waldhausener Str.(Altstadt).
