Trendy cafe just by alexander platz. Staff were super friendly, and food was fresh and tasty. Lovely place to sit by the window and people spot.

Oliv Cafe seemed like a good option for breakfast, so we tried it out. I liked their coffee and croissants, but it seemed to me as if the people just sat in this cafe to be seen... Nothing special breakfast-wise, there are better (and cheaper) options in the area.

We were staying around the corner so came upon Oliv without the aid of a guide book and what a find. Despite on our first visit quite a wait, as they were overrun following the Bank Holiday, we came back each morning for brunch. The staff were lovely, polite without being over the top. Great seating outside for coffee and... More

Trendy place to eat with lots of opportunities to people watch. Always busy but the service is fast and friendly. The muesli with yogurt, fruit and honey is a great dish and their iced coffee is very tasty. Not the cheapest place to eat but the presentation and the food is good. Only drawback is they don’t seem to have... More

Oliv is a great small cafe in Mitte. The staff are very friendly and the menu is full of excellent, quality food. The portions are generous (especially the soup) and well priced. It has a great atmosphere as well, nice and relaxed. Highly recommend it.

I know the Olive for ages and still love this awesome Café in Mitte. Coffee and expresso is great and they have a nice range of cakes/pies and sandwiches. But first of all, I come here for the relaxed athmosphere when I am in the area. Stop by and enjoy berlin coffee culture.

Ok place if you want to take a rest from shopping and grab some simple food: cheesecake, sandwich or tasty soup.

Guide book recommendations led us to this cafe near Alexanderplatz for a quick breakfast promising it was where 'trendy Berliners' went. We weren't disappointed: efficient service.

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.
