Sweet treats and cake!  We don’t know about you, but this lockdown has got us craving something sweet!!!!! As the days seem to roll into one, life starts to feel a bit, well, drab. So taking yourself out for some fresh air is pretty exciting when it includes a trip to the bakery!!!!! It’s those little things in life that are just so darn sweet!

So in no particular order, we’ve put together a little list of some great sweet treat spots for you to try. Please note these places are all open for takeaway. We aren’t about to get your hopes up only to let you down. So, take yourself for a nice walk around the block and pick up a nice big piece of cake or anything that tickles that sweet tooth!

ROYAL DONUTS

Have you indulged in the new kid on Berger Straße block? Royal Donuts is not only the new kid on the block, but because of its popularity you will also be queuing around the block!  But don’t let that put you off, it’s worth the wait, we promise!  Once you finally get yourself in the door, that’s when the real fun starts, which ones to choose??!!!!! We usually indulge in the half-dozen but you can get yourself just one if choose, honestly though it’s an impossible choice, you simply can’t choose only one.

ZEIT FÜR BROT

Zeit Für Brot is nothing new, they an institution for anything yummy!!  Also, they started right here in Frankfurt! (they have locations in Berlin, Hamburg, Koln too) Especially amazing are the zimtschneckes (cinnamon rolls).  Boy are they heavenly!!!! They also have a great range of breads, cakes and speciality rolls all made in house!

MOKKATEERIA BREAD & SWEETS

So I am probably the luckiest woman on the planet as I have this delicious bakery right downstairs!!! The one on Sandweg. Yep, I live above it on the 4th floor. Not too shabby. You gotta watch yourself though, it’s easy to want a piece of cake everyday as it’s right downstairs. But we’ve managed to control ourselves. My daughter and I did however try out a new cake every week in the summer. To be honest, you can’t go wrong with any of them. Yes we have our favourites, like, the Vanilla Sahne Cake and their cheesecake!!! OMG!!!! Definitely let us know which is your favourite!

MEHLWASSERSALZ

I had always pasted Mehlwassersalz, but never brought myself to go in. I wanted too, but it wasn’t until I met up with a friend there that I finally went in. My coffee and zimtschnecke were just divine and whatever my friend had was pretty damn tasty too. They have an array of tasty dishes and sweet treats for takeaway. Treat yourself!  Also they have a pop-up at the famous Chairs Restuarant starting soon! So keep your eyes peeled for that. Follow them via insta!

PLANTS & CAKES

We understand not everyone can partake in the sweet scene due to dietary issues, but do not fear our dear friends, we have just the treat for you!!! Plants & Cakes specialises in plant only sweets. Raw cakes and treats that are delicious but also so pretty you’re not sure you want to eat it, perhaps just stare at it!

OTHER MENTIONS:

BITTER & ZART

Ok so unfortunately their salon is closed, which is an absolute shame, as their cakes are divine, but the Chocolaterie is open, which is sublime!!! So for all you sweet tooths out there, you can still get yourself some chocolate!!! And with Valentine’s Day around the corner, thank God!!!!

 

HOPPENWORTH & PLOCH

They have great cookies!!!!! And other things too, like coffee, BUT THE COOKIES!!!  Did we mention the cookies??
