Craving sugar? We hear you! Sometimes the need for a sweet treat is almost overwhelming and you just really need to grab… well, what really? Berlins has a lot to offer: patisseries, chocolateries, ice cream parlours, bakeries… from mousse to muffin and cupcake to croissant, it’s hard to decide when everything is available.
Traditionally, Berlin is famous for a dessert called “Berliner Luft” (= berlin air), which is just a combination of three layers of colourful jelly. Very popular is also “Kalter Hund” (= cold dog), a dessert made from chocolate cream and plain biscuits.
However, if you feel like trying something a little more fancy, go and indulge with one of our recommendations.
In classical music, a little extra melody at the end of the piece is called “coda” and meant to be a beautiful and sometimes unexpected ending. Coda Dessert Bar has been named after this, as it does the same: provide a sweet little surprise to finish off a lovely meal.

A great choice of wines and whiskys rounds off the menu – and your evening.
