Lucie & Kai

The 2 Minute Interview


Lucie and Kai are the duo infernale of the sweetest art and pretty much the best thing that has happened to everyone hopelessly addicted to anything sweet. Patisserie JUBEL at Hufelandstraße in Prenzlauer Berg is their very own little heavenly kingdom of treats. The picturesque café and bakery offers the most exquisite and extraordinary works of art. Though that comes as no surprise: the two entrepreneurs learnt from the best and know exactly what they’re doing. How about some delicious lime and basil balls or a chocolate-mousse tart with green olives? Yes, please!!! We asked the girls a couple of questions and surreptitiously tried snatching up a few baking tricks along the way…Oh and the girls are celebrating their first Jubel anniversary on sunday! Check it out!
