It's hard to be an exberliner. Even harder when you have to live in Hannover instead.
Compared to Berlin, Hannover has no chance at all. There a no cozy coffee shops - okay, maybe two, there are no Spätis, no proper bookshop, no fabric shops ( there is one)... there is no variety. Even the Post Office closes for lunch.
So I was extremely surprised and happy to see the opening of a new deli near my house at Marienstrasse.
It's called Lecker Ladenlokal and they serve a deliciously All You Can Eat soup every day and one of the best soy cappuccinos I've tasted.
