The Sugar Monarchy in Hamburg St. Pauli, the self-proclaimed "kingdom" for sweets, offers everything a sweet tooth desires and much more.

Cuteness knows no bounds: in a total of three themed rooms, we find a stylish combination furniture from the Biedermeier and art nouveau periods, framed pictures on the walls – and wherever you look, decorative objects, colourful cushions, vases, chandeliers and much more. The interior reflects what the kitchen offers: a colourful, opulent range of delicious and wonderfully silly dishes.

Tasty sweets

You notice immediately that the Zuckermonarchie used to be a catering company, because not only the quality, but also the visual presentation of the tasty treats is sensational. And all the delicacies can be taken out – or preordered in larger amounts for events. The focus is on sweets such as cakes, tartlets and cupcakes in a huge selection, from strawberry-champagne mini tartlets and home-made macarons to Oreo-cookie cupcakes: Everything tastes delicious and fresh, because Denise Trage, founder of the Zuckermonarchie, relies on organic ingredients, and does without chemical aids or additives to the largest possible extent.

Breakfast in the Zuckermonarchie

Especially popular – and quickly booked out as a result – is the weekend breakfast: the opulent creation “Katharina the Great” arrives in a three-level étagère with fruit and yoghurt on the ground level, savouries such as avocado and fine cold meats on the first level and a calorific upper level of cupcake and tartlet. And the details make it special: heart-shaped butter or the homemade crisp bread with cream cheese and fresh sprouts. The selection follows the seasons: in summer, there is lots of fresh fruit, in winter Denise Trage uses gingerbread spices, chocolate and honey. No matter the season: when you leave the Zuckermonarchie, you will be full and happy. That’s for sure.
