I love cupcakes. So you can imagine that when I learned that there is a cafe where you can create your own cupcakes, I wanted to try it instantly. Here comes my review of Cafe Isla in Stuttgart.
[Transparency: This article contains non-paid advertisements based on personal experience.]
Cafe Isla is a small and cozy place, located at Hospitalviertel, close to Berliner Platz/Liederhalle.
The name “Isla” is Spanish and translates to island. And that’s actually what this cafe wants to be: an island of relaxation in downtown Stuttgart. And I have to say I felt quite relaxed when I was there. It was not crowded at all.
You can have breakfast, brunch or lunch here or just pop in for a cup of coffee and a piece of cake or a DIY cupcake. The lunch menu changes every week and they are actually quite proud of their homemade pies, something you don’t get that often in Stuttgart.
I had to try the DIY cupcake! You can make a selection of the different ingredients at the bar and then enjoy your own, very special creation.
I chose a regular cupcake for the basis with chocolate and coconut cream. Yummy 🙂
It came out quite big actually and didn’t look much like a cupcake anymore 😀
And actually also the hot chocolate is kind of a DIY thing – you get served hot milk and organic chocolate drops which you put together yourself. I like 🙂
What I liked about Cafe Isla in Stuttgart
I really liked the relaxed atmosphere and the stylish interior. And creating your own cupcake is definitely fun, too.
What I didn’t like
All the desserts me and my friends tried were very sweet. I personally like it sweet but for some it was a bit too much.
