Kaiserschmarrn are pancakes coarsely shredded into awesome bite-size lumps, crispy on the outside, gorgeously soft (but not mushy) within. Well calibrated sweetness, judicious bits of raisins, soft ripely-flavoured morello cherries, a gentle waft of cinnamon. What the perfect gnocchi would be if it dreamt of being dessert.

The liver dumpling soup is comfort food - a clear broth with light, stocky flavour, and soft almost bready slices of the liver dumplings with just a bit of the metallic livery flavour.

Good coffee, a smooth, seamless blend of fruit and nut at first but also a sustained backbone of rich roasting. Not bad foam in the cream, but nothing as silky as the ones form the Hatch in Bermondsey.
