Mom traveled last week to honor my little sister achievements. Not being there we were still lucky to get a great dessert when we picked her up from the airport. Pastéis de Belém, a dessert/sweet made unchanged since 1837. Not just the nice wrapping of the dessert, the taste was great. Hard to imagine how they tasted when they came out of the oven and being still warm. 

Here you get the stuff:

A true jewel and a coffee to stay place I decided to share with you today. In Munich right behind the Viktualienmarkt there is Vee´s, a great place if you need a break, a good coffee and a good piece (or two) of cake.

With what to start? Vee Tismer and her husband are not only roasting superb coffee she is also a master of amazing cakes. On the 7.2.2007 I bought her book “In meinem Paradies steht ein Backofen” – “In my paradise is an oven to bake cakes” by Ulrike von Jordans. The book is full of great images and recipes and more than worth to buy. The spirit of the book is really showing her passion about cakes. If you are too lazy to bake them by yourself you can have a variation of them daily baked at her cafe. A true insider and it never failed to even impress friends who live in munich.
