SHOWSTOPPING VEGAN CAKES FOR A PLANT-BASED TREAT — CAFÉ NEUNDREI

SHOWSTOPPING VEGAN CAKES FOR A PLANT-BASED TREAT — CAFÉ NEUNDREI

With a background in conventional patisserie, Laura Blume’s desire to bake vegan is what led her to open Café Neundrei in 2015. Her Monbijouplatz shop is open for coffee and food to go, and luckily this includes Neundrei’s showstopping vegan cakes, made in house by plant-based patisserie wizard Hana. These baked creations amaze with their looks alone, with delicate floral decorations and fruit and nut garnishes. And with a selection that ranges from the no-bake mango and coconut cheesecake to elegant blackberry and raspberry mousse cakes, the flavors won’t disappoint either. You can drop by the shop to pick up a slice of your choice or send the team an email and get an entire cake made to order. We celebrated Cee Cee’s ninth birthday with a vanilla “cream cheese” and blueberry compote cake topped with blackberries, flowers and herbs and are already looking forward to our next tasty delivery. Need inspiration for your cake? Check out Neundrei’s mouth-watering Instagram feed. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Café Neundrei & Sven Hausherr)

PAR CREAMERY: CREATIVE ICE CREAM AND SORBETS — ALSO FOR VEGANS

PAR CREAMERY: CREATIVE ICE CREAM AND SORBETS — ALSO FOR VEGANS

The warmer season means it’s time to indulge in one of my favorite desserts: ice cream. I had my first scoops of the summer from Par Creamery, a small parlour currently serving handcrafted ice cream to go. If the design of the store is simple and minimalist, their ice cream offering is anything but plain. Since opening shop in 2018, founders Fabian Zeisler and Franziska Lang have been creating flavors inspired by baked goods and desserts: Carrot Cake and a Thanksgiving influenced Pumpkin Spice Speculoos have both been past favorites. Other scrumptious scoops include the fragrant Blueberry Lavender sorbet and the Crunchy Peanut, a smooth ice cream with crispy, caramelized nuts and chocolate bits. Many flavors are vegan, but given Fabian’s gift for creating creamy textures from his ingredients you won’t know the difference. And if you want to elevate the experience, try one of Par’s three salted caramel spreads as a topping for your gelato. True to their motto, this is ice cream par excellence!

HONIGGELB: SUNNY SPOT FOR FRESH LUNCHES AND CHILLED COFFEE CATCH-UPS

HONIGGELB: SUNNY SPOT FOR FRESH LUNCHES AND CHILLED COFFEE CATCH-UPS

As soon as you set foot into Honiggelb, your mood becomes just that bit sunnier. This light-filled, high-ceilinged cafe is uniquely, boldly yellow – from the Melitta crockery and geometric chairs to the 1970s wall-mounted oddments in various honey hues. Opened in 2019, the cafe is equally popular amongst friends catching up over matcha lattes as it is for freelancers using the quiet, light corners for a working lunch. Speaking of lunch, you could come here every day and still find something new to eat: the salads and soups are made fresh daily, along with more substantial special plates (think veggie favorites like chile sin carne) prepared by owner Idil and her onsite kitchen team. For smaller bites, the feta scones with carrot, paprika and ricotta hit the spot, while the NY cheesecake has a cult following amongst regulars. Once you’ve made your choice and taken a seat in front of the south-facing windows or by the plant wall, you won’t want to leave this bright little oasis.
