Revisited: Bullys Bakery

Bullys Bakery used to be one of my favs, before it seemed like the owners kinda got tired of gastronomy and just let things slide, turning the once pretty corner café into a whatever place with a less than impressive menu. So it was probably the right next step for OG-Bully to move back to South Germany and hand the reins over to Behzad Karim-Khani und Achille Farese, known from Lugosi bar and Karloff (aka, my favourite Italian restaurant in the city).  They renovated and updated this prime location, upped their coffee and cake game and created a place I’m happy to put back on the map.

I went by on a Saturday afternoon and the place looked nothing like I remembered – an extensive black bar dominates the front room, and another back room has been opened up for seating space. Inside of the angular bar you’ll find the cakes of the day, cheese cake with or without salted caramel, gluten-free chocolate cake and brioche was displayed, but my eye fell on a hazelnut apple tart, generously sprinkled with what looked like Piedmontese nuts (which would justify the price tag of 3,70 Euros). I added a cappuccino to my order and sat down by the window.

The cappuccino had the gentlest milk foam, was perfectly balanced in taste and complimented the cake very well. And yes, the cake was made with Piedmontese hazelnuts, slightly roasted and thus super delicious. The pastry was topped with the nuts and the roasted sliced apples. Such a good piece of cake. Great comeback, Bullys!

PS, the espresso is only 1,-!

    I might have worked there once ;). Did you witness the owner and the cook going over cvs to determine whether female applicants were hot enough to work there or has that also changed? These guys live in the suburbs and treat the place like a milking cow for tourists and entry-level hipsters. The constant re-design of the place should suffice to see its soulless nature. Maybe it’s changed hands, though.

      As said in the text: not the same owners anymore
