Since I discovered Savoca, this little café has become my favorite spot in Sülz-Klettenberg! It’s an absolutely likable mixture of an Italian café-bar, a deli and a “Büdchen” and I regularly have my breakfast here or just a quick chat with the lovely owner Grischa. You’ll find Savoca on the nice tree-lined Gottesweg, which links the Cologne neighborhoods of Sülz, Klettenberg and Zollstock. The spot is really tiny, but you will be surprised by the wide range of products you can purchase at this place.
First of all there is coffee (from Schamong roasters in Ehrenfeld), prepared as Italian espresso specialities. With the coffee (to stay or to go) you have the difficult choice between homemade cakes and ice-cream, delicious bread and pastries from one of my favourite bakeries “Bergheim” and a range of toasts and panini.
The shelves on the walls are filled with a variety of culinary specialties: olive oil, fruit spreads and honey from Calabria, bottles of wine, coffee beans, Italian cookies, chocolate and even the typical Büdchen-stuff like magazines, sweets and cigarettes which by no means look ordinary in this pleasant little shop.
In summertime you can have your delicacies on the ever-expanding terrace outside – when the weather is bad you will hopefully be lucky enough to catch one of the few seats inside.
