Trödeln und Strudel

After a lap around our favourite Berlin flea market, the RAW Flohmarkt in the yard of the former train repair yards along Revaler Strasse, and finding a set of five 70's tea cups, we sat down at Wiener Strudel Manufaktur. I noticed in May that a cosy looking terrace café had opened next to the flea market, and I recognized the logo from the Mauerpark market where my Austrian friend, S, always bought her strudels, explaining to me that these people sold the best strudels in Berlin.

The generous pieces of strudel come with a variety of sweet or savoury fillings, they are heated up and topped with vanilla sauce or Kräuterschmand, and cost €3.50. The drinks are pretty inexpensive at €2 for a cappuccino or €2.50 for a glass of Sekt on crushed ice – guess which one we chose?

It was a perfect Sunday afternoon, sitting in the shade with my feet hot in the sun, sipping on a glass of cold sparkling wine and watching people come and go from the market.
