Caffé e Gelato (Berlin, Germany)
Potsdamer Platz Arkaden, Alte Potsdamer Str. 7, 10785 Berlin
Caffé e Gelato is a big café and ice cream place in the upscale mall on Potsdamer Platz. It offers a huge variety of coffees and ice creams, including the classic Italian gelatos (€1.40 each), premium (original creations; €1.70), and organic flavors (€2).
As always, I test gelato places with two flavors: Lemon and Stracciatella. Both are absolutely excellent! The lemon is fresh and zesty, the stracciatella is creamy but not too sweet. A few days later I come back and am more adventurous. I get two premium flavors: Sole Mio and Bacissimo. The Sole Mio is lemon with basil and is simply outrageous! The Bacissimo is nougat ice cream with full hazelnuts and nougat sauce.
Some of the best gelato I have ever had.
