Markus Wehrle (pictured) and Kai Tietze (with a little help from their friends) have turned a direly neglected and unbelievably scruffy building in the Gaustrasse into “Lönneberga“, a “café for families”.
Organic. Fairtrade. Regional.
I was having an espresso with Paul at Kaffeekommune II when an excited Ms jb fronted up from a visit to the ever-excellent Shakespeare & So where Nida had said: “There’sanewcafenextdooryouhavetoseeitjbhastotakephotographsyou’lljustloveitcomeoni’llshowyou”
It’s really nice. They’ve got a proper espresso machine and I helped them set it up properly”
Talk about selfless….
Got chatting to the barista and then to Markus who gave us a rundown on the project.
2 years of gutting, stripping, sand-blasting, painting.
I’ll still go to Paul for REALLY good espresso, but Lönneberga’s definitely worth a visit.
Oh, and they’ll let you in without kids….
