When it comes to food, some people prefer savory flavors and others move more towards the sweet side. Although I haven’t written many posts about food, looking back there is one thing missing in my food posts – dessert! While I’ve talked about the Goulash Soup or the Schnitzel I love, I’ve really not talked much about sweets. To be honest, most of the time I’d rather have another glass of wine than dessert 🙂
You see, I’m a savory kind of gal!
Now this doesn’t mean I don’t like sweets, oh no! In fact there are times when that is all I want and that leads me to the point of this post.
During my last trip to Germany I noticed people enjoying sweets every afternoon. It didn’t matter which city I was in or the day of the week, every afternoon cafes were full of people enjoying Kaffee und Kuchen or Coffee and Cake!
So when in Rome. . .
Can you think of a better way to wait out the rain than enjoy wonderful Kaffee und Kuchen? Café Schmidt is well known in Freiburg and since I was in the Black Forest I opted for the Black Forest Cake 🙂
I love traditions, so while in Wiesbaden I had to stop at famous Café Maldaner, a Viennese style coffee house that has been in Wiesbaden since 1859.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed having my afternoon Kaffee and Kuchen, my experience with sweets didn’t stop with cake. No sir! I’ve already told you about the super delicious macarons I found in Wiesbaden but while in Erfurt I was introduced to a wonderful small shop that makes its own chocolate. Goldhelm Schokolade is on the Krämerbrücke and is famous for its thick and rich hot chocolate! I do highly recommend a stop as the hot chocolate is A-mazing but if you prefer ice cream theirs is to die for!
