DREAMY ICE CREAM AND SWEETS: DIE EISFABRIK BERLIN

DREAMY ICE CREAM AND SWEETS: DIE EISFABRIK BERLIN

On a summer evening, as the sun sank in the sky, a curious purple glow reading “I dream of you” caught my eye at this newfound ice cream shop. After 12 years in patisserie – working at places like What Do You Fancy Love in Charlottenburg and Albrechts Patisserie, Felix Schwabe has branched out on his own, pairing up with co-owner and fellow ice cream enthusiast Lisa Staib to open Die Eisfabrik Berlin— which has been serving all sorts of delectable treats since it opened its doors in May 2017. Everything is made in-house from the first step to the final product with passion and high-quality ingredients — for example the sorbets start with real fruit, not juice, giving them an exceptional burst of freshness. All the splendid ice creams, cheese and carrot cakes, moist banana breads, and homey cookies are scooped, sliced, and served with a friendly smile in the tiny shop. From creamy banana ice cream with chocolate brownie chunks to luscious grapefruit sorbet, don’t forget to top your cone or cup with decadent house made chocolate, caramel, or peanut butter sauces for a perfectly sweet ending to any summer daydream.
