Berlin: KaDeWe or Kaufhaus des Westens: The Gourmet Floor

KaDeWe or Kaufhaus des Westens is a very high-end department store in Berlin.   I entered it and wandered around.  I saw that there was a food level titled: The Gourmet Floor.  I decided I had to see it.   This is what I found.

The 6th floor of KaDeWe is heaven for a foodie.  They have fabulous selections of just about everything.

They had an entire section devoted to eggs,  EGGS!!

You will not miss out on cheese here.

They have a section dedicated to Champagne.  I took a photo of this champagne, because when I was in Reims, Champagne, France, I visited the Taittinger champagne caves and took a tour of the place.

They even have a section dedicated to asian food.

Right in the center of this section is a little place to order some thai food.

They had plenty of  different types of dried fruit.  In fact, they had a whole counter dedicated to it.


Do not get me started on all the beautiful fruit!

 

Inside the fruit section, they had a counter dedicated to exotic fruit!!

Of course, they had an excellent selection of veggies, including root veggies.

Their wine selection was fabulous as well!

What impressed me more than their wine selection, was there jam selection.  Look at all those shelves filled with jam…

But, I did get upset when I got to the “American” section.  Their selection was horrible.  A lot of the section was filled with pop tarts, EZ-cheese, campbell’s soup, barbeque sauces and lots and lots of soda.

After this section, a man who worked there very rudely told me to not take photos. You see, I was wearing shorts, sandals, a t-shirt and had my backpack on my back.  It was about 87 degrees that day, and I was not planning on going into a high-end department store after work, but an outdoor market in the sun.  I know that he would not have dared to speak to me in that manner if I was older, or if I was with my parents or grandparents.  He must have thought I was a poor person wandering around who could not afford anything.

I would have taken photos of the fabulous tea selection they had, or the cured meats, etc.  They had a fabulous chocolate section too.  They had a counter of Teuscher Chocolates, one of my favorites.  They also had Mozartkugel.  I would have bought some Teuscher and Mozartkugel, but after one of the employees was so rude, I decided not to.
