Our Favorites: Coffee and Snacks

I’m continuing my/our list of favorite spots in Berlin.  This time around it’s where we go to get our caffeine and sugar highs.

Coffee:

Windback

It’s consistently creamy and unbelievably cheap.  Best cappuccino on the westside.

Antipodes

Their flat white is spot on.  After a couple of disappointing flat whites at the Barn, Antipodes pulled into the lead on that front.

No Fire No Glory

Located in Prenzlauer Berg not far from lovely, leafy Kollwitzplatz.  A high quality cappucino, and cozy cafe atmosphere.

Snacks and treats 

Quarkballchen at Hackescher Markt

There is a stall at the Thursday wochenmarkt at Hackescher Markt that consistently dishes out warm, light balls of happiness.  Quarkballs.  Recently, I had the unfortunate experience of ordering quarkballs from a vendor at a christmas market, and I was given dense, flavorless imitations.  Sad day.

Quiche from Lenôtre in KaDeWe

While the buffet up at the top of the legendary department store has variety, it’s hideously expensive.  For a quick lunch, we sit at the counter of Lenôtre, the legendary French bakery, and order a quiche.  Simple and flavorsome.  After your quiche, grab one of the many impressive looking pastries for a little more indulgence.

Hot Chocolate from Nibs

Speaking of indulgence….thick, decadent chocolate with a churro on the side? If the dense Spanish style hot chocolate is too intense for you, Nibs offers a number of international variations including an American style with marshmallows.

Cheesecake from Five Elephant

We first had this treat at Street Food Thursday.  I’ve tried a number of cheesecakes in this city.  German style käsekuchen is less rich, more fluffy, but not nearly as satisfying to my ‘murican palette.  And Princess Cheesecake in Mitte offers many delicious flavors, but the texture still hangs somewhere between a German and American cheesecake.  However, the confection from Five Elephant is creamy and rich, and the crust? Damn near perfect.

  1. The cappacino’s are making my groggy morning taste buds crying out. What was the name if that Delish snack we had in the open air markets while waiting for OC’s PT? Similiar go a murican fritter? Mouth watering!
