ST. GALLEN | Praliné Scherrer is one of several quality chocolate shops in St Gallen’s old town. It opened around the corner from the Unesco World Heritage Listed Abbey of Saint Gall in 1875, and has a reputation for producing some of the city’s best truffles, pralines, gingerbread and butter sweets.

The store is small and narrow, with a long counter displaying all of the treats on offer. You can purchase individual truffles and items, or choose from an assortment of already packaged (but freshly made) items. A few tables and seats out the front provide a place to sit enjoy your purchases while watching the world go by.

You can’t go wrong with whatever you choose to eat here, but one thing you must purchase when you visit is their St. Galler Biber, or Biberli. Biber is a gingerbread-like brown honey cake filled with an almond paste, that’s a speciality of this region. The version at Praliné Scherrer is one of the best you’ll find. It’s quite sweet, with a dense, soft texture and strong almond flavour. A variety of sizes are available but as it’s quite a rich treat, my advice is to grab a smaller one and perhaps a few truffles.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
