Something I’m noticing a lot here in Frankfurt is that small businesses like Coy and Dan’s, the awesome bubble tea place I blogged about a while back, just don’t stick around for very long. The boyf was very upset that his favourite cake shop We Love Cupcakes had also closed down recently. To cheer him up, we went out looking for some other good cupcakes in town.
In Bornheim sits Jenny’s Cupcakes, and the window display says that they’ve been there for 3 whole years now. A moody teenager served us, but she replied to my German in German so she was ok by me. The boyf had a red velvet cupcake…
And I had a PB&J one. On the whole, they weren’t as yummy as the We Love Cupcakes ones by a long, long shot. A little dry and a tad on the small side, but they tasted pretty good. There was such a wide range that we both changed our orders about 3 times while we waited in the queue.
The shop seemed to be very busy – there was a family next to us who bought 4 boxes full of cakes for a party. The shop was very pretty and the concept was nice but the goods weren’t as good as those from shops that have closed recently. Makes me wonder how some shops can stay open and some stay empty until they have to give up.
It’s still worth a visit, and there are two locations to try Jenny’s cupcakes -
Fahrgasse 82, 60311 Frankfurt
Berger Straße 154, 60385 Frankfurt
