Berlin, Day 5
Two things today:
One. Next time you’re in Berlin, go to Clärchens Ballhaus (Auguststr. 24) shortly after they open (in the afternoon) and ask if you can look at the Spiegelsaal. It’s a magical space when it’s empty. Expect beatiful photos here soon.
Two. Ilse Hünchen’s Cafe Keks (Winsstrasse 11) is lovely. The owners are all musicians, but they also bake a MEAN cookie and make gorgeous coffees. My favorite combination is a Latte Macchiato (why don’t we have these in the states?) and the white chocolate/hazelnut/orange zest cookie. Wow. I’ll be trying to duplicate that in about five minutes. (Or, you know, after I get home.)
