Moving along into East Germany, we no longer saw sight of Der Beck. Instead, I saw BackWerk. It wasn’t as comfy and elaborate as Der Beck, but they did have really good sandwiches for about 2-3 Euros. The sandwiches looked freshly made, unlike at Starbucks where they would be wrapped up and squished, these were all sitting on trays behind clear plastic doors – like you’d see pastries that you can pick up with tongs at Safeway or Superstore.

I was glad to see healthy choices as ‘fast food’ in Germany, and being in the east side, things were cheaper than the west.


The drinks were machine made, so not as good as Der Beck or other cafes but I recommend their sandwiches for a quick breakfast or lunch – great for on the go.
