Kadó Lakritz (Liquorice in Berlin)


While coughing my way through the last phase of bronchitis I've found my little paper cone full of soft liquorice to be tremendously comforting. And certainly kadó's decor carries a whiff of the apothecary, what with its gorgeous shelves, glassed-in display cases, scales and incredible tins. Though I have a friend who swears by their salty liquorices, I've always cleaved to the safer, sugary varieties (which kadó's salespeople are happy to mix for you, tipping a few cones, a few buttons and a few cubes out of massive glass jars into the waiting metal tray).

Really, you should go to the shop itself to pore over the amazing packaging of liquorice from Norway, Belgium, Italy and further field, then tuck your paper cone into your pocket and munch away while wandering through the Graefekiez; but know that they also have stands at the weekly markets at Winterfeldplatz, Kollwitzplatz and Hackescher Markt.
