Bekarei is an absolute gem of a bakery in Prenzlauer Berg that makes some of the best bread and cakes that I have managed to track down in Berlin.
I have the Sausage Man Never Sleeps to thank for introducing me to Bekarei. The bread he used for his BLT at The Breakfast Market was so good that I asked him where he got it and he told me that it came from ‘a great little bakery in Prenzlauer Berg’ and gave me a card.
I went to buy bread but what caught my eye were the sweets on offer. There are lots of goodies on the menu at Bekarei but for me it’s all about the Lemon Meringue Pie – sweet fluffy meringue on sharp tangy lemon curd with a pastry base – individual sized portions of desert deliciousness.
Bekarei is open daily from 07:30 until 18:30 and as everything is made fresh daily you will need to arrive early(ish) to get your pick of the bread – don’t forget to treat yourself to a Lemon Meringue Pie.
