One particularly grey, dark and wet day in January, I was walking around Sanderstraße to check some new places I heard about. My mood got increasingly darker, many of the locations turned out to be less interesting than I hoped… Until I found this small Swedish café and dared to enter, although it was completely empty (which usually isn’t a very good sign). Greeted by the lovely owner, I immediately went for the unknown thing on the menu, Blåbärssoppa – a thick drink made from bilberries, water and sugar. A heart warming drink that is to be enjoyed slow and will lighten up your mind – the more I drank, the more my mood got back on a level of “being quite okay”, which is a great thing during Berlin’s winter.
Alongside the bilberry drink, this small café is already famous for its many Swedish baked treats. I was lucky enough to arrive in time for some freshly baked Kanelbullar, cinammon buns, which were among the best I had so far in Berlin. In fact, every cookie and cake I had here was very good and definitely calls for coming back here, as soon as I am in the area.
