Last summer, by the harbor of my hometown Muenster (Germany), a lovely cafe opened. It is called Birkenwald which means birch forest. It is run by four architectural students and is actually decorated with birches, too. Besides very good coffee they offer homemade cakes and cookies. So if you ever make it to my hometown, this is where you should have your coffee.
The café located at the Hansaring 14 in Münster, near the harbor.
