Food in Berlin: Katie’s Blue Cat

Katie’s Blue Cat could just as easily have landed itself in our Coffee Guide to Berlin, but we wanted to devote a separate post to it so we could bring attention to the other its specialty: baked goods.

Opened in May of last year on Friedelstraße, owners Olivia and Ngoc wanted to open a cafe specialized in what they call “Anglophone Baking,” which includes shortbread, crumpets, pies, butter tarts, and the somewhat obscure (unless you’re Australian) anzac. The menu is always changing depending on Olivia’s baking cravings for the day, but you can always get bagels (as close to New York style that you can probably find here), as well as crumpets accompanied by chutney. And if you’re lucky, she may have even made Nanaimo Bars, the British Columbian delicacy. All the recipes are well-researched, and most of them sugar-reduced, in order to accentuate out the individual flavours. When possible, the cafe uses biological and local ingredients as well.

As for coffee, Katie’s Blue Cat also uses the best machines available, and works together with Bonanza Coffee Roasters on their own roast.

    I liked the chocolate brownie, but the coffee wasn’t great and the guy at the counter was quite rude. But I guess that it pretty typical for Berlin
