Late-afternoon kaffee und kuchen (coffee and cake) is sort of the German version of British afternoon tea. Around 4 or 5 p.m. on weekdays, cafes all around the city fill up for the time-honored tradition of a leisurely cup of coffee with a slice of cake. One of the best spots to indulge is Café Hüftgold, in the bohemian hood of Flingern. In this airy, modern space, you can choose from eight to 10 cakes baked fresh each morning—look for fruity versions in summer, and spiced versions in the colder months. The café also makes cakes without milk and/or flour—perfect for those with dietary restrictions.
