Berlin’s been on a sweet curve lately, with numerous places opening that serve treats from all over the world. Here are three new spots to bid goodbye to hypoglycemia during Fashion Week.
Efa’s: If Efa’s name or logo seems oddly familiar, that’s because it used to belong to one of Germany’s former ice cream icons. Established in the Fifties, Efa’s exclusively supplied the 1972 Munich Olympics with its sweet boosts, but closed down in the Eighties. The founder’s granddaughter Felicitas Freiberger and her boyfriend, Paul Claudius, have revived Efa’s with a 1,076 square-foot parlor in Berlin.
But instead of sticking to the old recipe, they updated the concept from ice cream to frozen yogurt, after having developed a taste for it as students and interns in New York. Located just off Rosenthaler Platz, they serve two flavors — a basic and hibiscus-lemon — with fruit or sweet toppings and purees as sauces, plus smoothies and parfaits from around $3.50.
