If you like banana bread, then this is the place for you. Freshly baked every day, the generous portion is often still warm when served. Other cake options include zucchini and coconut, avocado and lime or chocolate and nut. They are equally hard to resist – even when all you wanted was a coffee.
But it’s not just the cakes that are worth coming for. Shotgun Sister is also a great spot for breakfast and lunch. In the morning there’s Bircher muesli or homemade peanut butter on toast, whilst later there are open sandwiches with avocado and feta or beetroot hummus, as well as quinoa bowls with similar topping to the sarnies.
A lot of focus is placed on the origin of products, with organic and regional ingredients used where possible. No added colours or preservatives. The coffee is a special blend of beans from Brazil, Peru and Costa Rica, providing aroma of chocolate, caramel and walnut.
Opened in 2017, the café is run by the young and bubbly Katharina. Having been the manager of a car dealer for many years, she says the café is a dream come true for her. And while it is named after a somewhat melancholic song by the Swedish indie rock band Friska Viljor, the atmosphere at Shotgun Sister is very much upbeat, with positive messages on postcards taped to the wall.
The decor is shabby chic with an eclectic collection of furniture and fittings – the best seat in the house being the comfortable mustard armchair. The laid back setting and the free WiFi attracts a relaxed crowd, many with laptops and tablets. Having written this article there, we can confirm it provides a great setting to get some work done.
