Meierei, Berlin

We can count on a single finger the number of times we’ve eaten really good apple strudel, and it was here that it happened, sitting on a Swiss army blanket at a wooden picnic bench, enjoying the view of leafy Kollwitzstrasse. The strudel was light, nutty and barely sweet at all; an accompanying sandwich was similarly tasty. For those truly smitten by the Meierei experience, they sell the Swiss army blankets too.
