How it all started
Since March 2019 MalinaStories has been part of Barmbek and Barmbek has been a core part of our story.
Meringue pastry shop becomes MalinaCafé
In 2018, we rather accidentally found the space in Hellbrookstraße 61. Until 2017, it had been the “Konditorei Weber”, founded in 1934, which made it one of the oldest pastry shops in Hamburg. Owned and run by the one of a kind Rosemarie Patzer-Weber, the shop was famous for its meringues and dog cookies made out of liver sausage.
When we passed the door step for the first time, we felt the spirit and charm of that place right away and simply knew that it had to stay a home for delicious home-made cakes and pastries. We just found the perfect spot and, with a lot of patience and love to detail, turned it into MalinaStories.
New room for baking and shopping
Being café, bakery and concept store all in one at the beginning, Hellbrookstreet 61 becomes exclusively cozy café in 2021, concentrating on inhouse guests. Our cake production, the to go sales as well as the concept store move to Schwalbenstraße 57, a space just around the corner, that is revealing an exciting history as well. At the beginning of the 20th century, dairy products were sold here; the beautiful terrazzo floors still tell this story.
We just love it, the pink Raspberry.
That is why it is part of lots of our recipes and more importantly why we use its name for our MalinaStories.
Stories, on the other hand, stands for all the stories that we tell or create in our store.
