Very hip cafe

Enjoyed a great breakfast with coffee in this lovely little cafe in Central Berlin. Unfortunately the outside area is somewhap ruined by pretty heavy roadworks at the moment (Sept 2015) but that is entirely outside of their control to be fair. Food was excellent, as was the coffee and service. A... read more

Before our visit to Berlin I read an article listing the top 10 best coffee shops and bakeries and Oliv Café was one of them so I decided to try to find it and give it go. I suggest you do the same! The cakes are delicious! I had the cheesecake and my partner had the apple crumble accompanied by... More

We came across Oliv on New Years Day while looking for anywhere actually open.....I'm so glad we found it! The roasted pumpkin, beetroot and feta salad was excellent while the orange, apple and carrot juice with a touch of ginger really hit the spot. Unfortunately we didn't get the chance to sample more of the menu, but it all looked... More

Randomly stumbled upon it while looking for somewhere to eat breakfast (we were staying nearby). Ended up going there twice in 2 days! Lovely staff, good service and yummy, fresh food.

I was there to close a business day with a good coffee and some cake ... that I really deserved ;-) ... The place is a great location, the team gave a warm welcome, a great coffee and an extra thick slice of the amazing carrot cake. ... It was just what I was searching for, and have recommended many...

Stumbled across this place for a morning coffee break and brunch. Lovely seating area outside. Very good coffee, tasty fresh salad and healthy sandwiches, good for vegans and veggies alike. If I had the time I would have visited twice!

We visited this café twice. The coffee was great and the cakes superb. Very good service and the place had an interesting mix of customer. The menu choice was varied and the food we saw others eat looked tempting. Good pricing.

I keep on coming back here. Espresso, lunch and sweets are of a certain quality that ground my return. Staff has a little distant approach (I am used to Amsterdam arrogance so this 'distance' is of another quality) Still friendly, gentle smile. The sweets that go with my espresso seem to be jumped out of the oven a minute ago... More

I was there following an article of The Guardian that says is one of the best cafes of Berlin. I would not say that much, Berlin is full of nice cafes, but what is true is the tastiness of their cheesecake, which is delicious.

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
