Geschnitten Brot



I’m the first customer of the day, but not for long. Called ‘sliced bread’ in German, this cute café is incredibly popular for its tasty selection of mini German-style sandwiches, piled high with delicious and creative toppings. There really is something for everyone on the menu. The bread is sourced from a local baker, the cold cuts are produced locally, and some of the vegetables even come straight from the owner’s garden. Home-made salads, soups and other delectable delights are also available. An odd feature is the lottery counter at the back, but it doesn’t detract from the pretty interior. It was actually left there by the previous tenant and is a typical example of what makes my former stomping ground in Cologne a bit quirky and headstrong, but totally endearing. Just like the two variations on cellar cake that sit so invitingly on display, made with milk or white chocolate. It’s like a home from home, and I love it.
