POMERANZE: REGIONAL-SEASONAL DELICACIES AND GARDENING SUPPLIES FOR YOUR BALCONY — RECOMMENDED BY JANINA HACKMANN
Regional vegetarian dishes, cooked with local and seasonal ingredients driven by the goal of zero waste: that is what Neukölln cafe Pomeranze is all about. Five minutes’ walk from Tempelhofer Feld you will find a coffee bar that is full of delicious treats to go, like sandwiches and daily plates made with vegetables from the PlantAge cooperative and fruit from Berlin allotment gardeners. The accompanying espressos come courtesy of Tempelhof roasters Andraschko. Owners Katharina Herrlich and Marlene Modick also serve up sweeter options too, like the juicy lemon yogurt tart and the vegan apple crumble that have been the talk of the neighborhood for some time. Meanwhile, if you are looking to grow some treats yourself, Pomeranze also offers a range of boutique garden supplies for bringing your balcony and home to life, including special seed varieties and chic ceramic pots and vases by local designers. My tip: order your items online in the web shop for pick up in the cafe. And whilst you are there: grab a grilled cheese sandwich with homemade chutney and a salty chocolate cookie and head down to the Feld for an impromptu picnic!
