Sometimes in the hubbub of typing, Skyping and the constant deluge of Tweets, one may forget that a cafe is more than just a place to find some cyberspace for an hour or two. Tischendorf presents itself as a way to savor coffee and cake without the digital hum. Jutta Tischendorf, an architect, set up her cafe to reflect the kind of ambience she was exposed to while living in Australia. That translates to, above all, a slow, comforting atmosphere where the coffee (always organic) is refreshingly strong and the homemade cake—whether it’s carrot, cheese or banana—is truly unmatched. Simply let the light, floral setting put you in the right mood, whether or not the weather seems to be cooperating outside.
