Our Dutch friends took us to a great place while they were here in December: Factory Girl.
It's located in Friedrichshain, one of the rough and artistic neighborhoods of Berlin. When we entered the cafe, we were warmly welcomed by (what I believe was) one of the owners. My attention was immediately drawn to the big bowls in the vitrine.
We were asked which flavor of Magnolia we would like to taste. I went for the cookie dough, yeaaahhh this was freakin' delicious! It tasted like cheesecake (it looks a bit like a splashed cheesecake actually). When we got to ordering, I decided to go for the pomegranate Magnolia, also very yummy!
The atmosphere in the cafe was great and the decoration is amazing. I felt right at home and happy with my coffee, I will definitely come back!
I'd never heard of Magnolia, but apparently it's a typical New York dessert, as I was told at the cafe. I am curious. Have you heard of it before?
