One of my favorite cafés is a place called „liebes bisschen”. It is a very small café with lovely and detailed sticked interior design in a side street of the very lively and crowded Schanzenviertel.
They do not only have very good coffee specialties but also delicious cup cakes. Although cupcakes are famous and admired around the world this was Hamburgs first cupcake café. (I think meanwhile there are some more but not around that area.) Everything is made with love which you really feel when they serve your coffee and cup cakes at beautiful dishes.
The café was opened by three friends, one of them is an award winning pastry cook. All cup cake recipes are top secret and reach from really fruity ones to chocolate variants. I could die for the topping.
Go there, take a seat at the cosy couch next to the window and enjoy your coffee and delicious cup cakes apart from crowdy Schulterblatt. You find the coffee at Eifflerstraße 47, obliquely opposite of Saal II.
