HANDZAHM in Hamburg

Handzahm and the Dolce Villa


Dolce Vita at the Dolce Villa. Since April, in one of the most beautiful streets in Hamburg, the Wohlers Allee, there is a small but fine shop selling sweets, pastries, cakes and coffees to take away. After plenty of trying and delightful counselling, I have now decided on my favourites: handmade chocolate filled with single malt whiskey by Schell, and various chocolate pralines. You really must try the croissants directly from France – they melt like butter in your mouth. It‘s a true feast for the eyes as well. The shop was personally decorated by Hamburg artist Jeannine Platz, and there are even a few of her small works of art to take away. A little suggestion to finish: every Saturday from 2 to 4pm, there‘s a cooking class at the Dolce Villa. Delicious cakes made with special recipes for the weekend. There are just too few Saturdays in a week!

Dolce Villa, Wohlers Allee 54, 22767 Hamburg. www.dolcevilla.de. Mon¿Fri, 8:15 am to 1:15 pm, Sat, 2 to 4 pm. Sundays closed.
