Kaffee am Meer

Our timing is a bit off for lunch so posting this week might be a bit random and sporadic. As in this late afternoon snack in the Kreuzberg neighborhood of Berlin at a cafe called the Kaffee Am Meer. We didn't recognize too much on the menu except brot (bread) and butter (butter) so that's what we ordered and out came these 3 slices of German dark bread covered in a delectable thick layer of butter. Perfect with an afternoon kaffee (coffee).

There's something about the butter in Europe and especially Germany. One of the most memorable meals of my life was at a train station in Mannheim. It was a simple soft pretzel cut in half length-wise and spread with butter.

I can still taste it, and it has been close to 20 years.

Congratulations on your trip, Lunch Ladies, and keep the euro-food photos coming!
