We have decided, after much thought and observation, to eliminate meat products from our menu entirely. This is not such a big step as we offered only bacon and breakfast sausage on the weekends. Our decision stems from a desire to be as sustainable in our business practices as possible and from our concern for the well being of animals. We also figure everyone probably eats enough meat the other days of the week, they surely won’t miss it on the weekend and might even enjoy a meat-free meal.
Hopefully most of you will welcome this commitment to a complete vegetarian menu as well as our increased vegan offerings. We care about the planet, animals and our collective future and feel strongly about our desire to do what we can to make the world a better place for us all. And with any luck we communicate this in an obvious but gentle, non-aggressive way.
The clincher for us was watching the documentary Cowspiracy.
We hope you will all watch it as well and make informed choices regarding your lifestyle and food choices. Not to be alarmist but humanity needs to make some serious changes if we expect the planet to handle an influx of 9 billion of our kind in the near future.
Come in to TassenKuchen and feel good that you are eating organic food prepared in our kitchen in a sustainable manner. Hope to see you all again soon.
Seasons greetings faithful friends and fans. We will be closed for the holidays from December 23 through January 3rd. We will reopen and be happy to see you again on the 4th of January. We wish you all wonderful, healthy and fun holidays! See you then!
Fröhe Weihnachtszeit Lieber Freunde! Wir machen zu über Weihnachten und Silvester. Wir machen an den 4te Januar wieder auf. Frohes Fest wünschen wir euch. Bis 2016!
Hooray! You asked for it and you got it. We have officially started serving breakfast during the week too! That means you can now get (most of) your favorite TK breakfast offerings Monday through Friday. You no longer have to wait for the weekend. (All You-Can-Eat Pancakes are still reserved for the weekend only, however.) Omelette or Pancakes for lunch anyone?
Hooray! Ihr habt danach gefragt, also bekommt ihr es. Wir bieten nun offiziell auch unter der Woche unser Frühstück an. Ab sofort gibt es – die meisten – unserer beliebten TK-Frühstücksangebote von Montag bis Freitag. Kein Warten mehr aufs Wochenende (ausser für All-you-can-eat-Pancakes, gibt es dennoch ausschließlich nur am Wochenende). So, hat jemand Lust auf Omelette oder Pancakes zum Mittag?
Yes, we made it this far! Four Years of your favorite American, organic, bakery-café. We want to thank you all for your patronage, words of praise (both written and spoken), and continued support. We are happy to be on our pretty, little side-street in Wedding and even happier to be your neighborhood café. So come in tomorrow, get your free birthday mini-cupcake and give the Glücksrad a spin. We’ll be happy to see you, as always!
Ja, wir haben es geschafft! Vier Jahre gibt es nun schon Eure amerikanische Lieblings-Bio-Bäckerei-Café! Wir wollen Euch allen danken – für Eure treue Kundschaft, den Lobgesang (schriftlich wie mündlich) und Eure regelmäßige Unterstützung. Wir freuen uns, ein Zuhause in unserer kleinen, schönen Seitenstrasse im Wedding gefunden zu haben und sind noch glücklicher, Euer “Nachbarschaftscafe” zu sein. Kommt morgen vorbei und holt Euch einen Geburtstags-Minicupcake ab und gebt dem Glücksrad einen Dreh. Wir freuen uns Euch zu sehen, wie immer!
Welcome to Fall everyone…the air is colder and crisper, the leaves are changing (as much as they do in Berlin) and people are moving indoors. Yes, we have noticed it…or we were mentioned in some blogs, or the word has just been spreading. Whatever it is, the past two weekends have been crazy!! Lots and lots of customers and new customers! We want to thank you all for coming to our little, neighborhood café and enjoying our organic, homemade, baked goods and lunch specials.
With Fall and the changing temperature come colds and flus too! Yikes. If this short Fall period is any indication of what’s to come this winter then we are in for a doozie of a Flu season. I hope that is not the case but who knows?! We had our share of trouble this past weekend with lots of employees sick and finding ourselves understaffed. I would like to personally apologize to those who had to wait extra long this past weekend. We found ourselves short staffed in the kitchen and on top of that with an extremely high volume of customers.
It all added up to the “perfect storm”, ie: a very stressful situation in the kitchen and longer wait times. We are very sorry. Unfortunately, we could not remedy the situation. We will work on finding a solution for the future so that the winter flu season does not catch us off guard again.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you all again soon.
Hey y’all! After a two week summer recess we are opening again on Monday (tomorrow) August 24th! We are refreshed and hope you are too. Come enjoy some delicious baked goods, lunch, iced coffee or espresso drinks outside on lovely Malplaquetstrasse.
