Cafehopping in Berlin: Kauf Dich Glücklich
A shining star in the congested galaxy of Berlin’s cafes, Kauf Dich Glücklich may just be the place you will miss the most when you’re back home. Part toy store, part art gallery, all waffle and ice cream parlor, Kauf Dich Glücklich is what you would likely get if Coco Chanel collaborated with one of Santa’s elves to host a bake off in Andy Warhol’s back yard and the whole thing was set to a contemplative electronic soundtrack.
While bewitchment is assured from lounging amidst the décor alone, a different type of spell will befall you once you’ve tasted the many treats on offer. Words fail to accurately describe the way in which Kauf Dich Glücklich’s specially made waffles crunch with each bite, or how the cream melts into each square with such gentle perfection that it’s a wonder heaven hasn’t filed a lawsuit.
With waffles starting as low as €2.50, depending on which of the over 10 different toppings (Chocolate, Quark, Bananas, to name a few) you add, this bliss comes at a real bargain. One visit will convince you this isn’t some mere café, but rather a dalliance into a fantastical venue that epitomizes perfectly Berlin’s “Poor but Sexy” attitude.
