This time last weekend, we were having brunch at Anna Blume in P-Berg. It's a very cute florist/cafe that is heaving with local families and couples. We each ordered a breakfast platter which contained 2 choices of sliced meats, 3 cheeses and a selection of finely prepared fresh fruit. Mine also came with a delicious wasabi jam that was a perfect complement to the soft cheeses. In our bread basket, there was enough bread for twice the size of our group - my favourite was the pumpkin seed roll.
After a couple of hours strolling and checking out second hand shops, we were ready for a 'hot' hot chocolate (fortified with a shot of whiskey) and a small sliver of belle helene tart.

This memorial - for the murdered Jews of Europe - was designed by Peter Eisenmann and after considerable controversy, opened a few years ago. It's a very sombre experience walking through the 'field of stone' and it was very disconcerting to see people running through the avenues; laughing, shouting, and playing pranks on each other.
