This place is a quick and easy bakery, you go in and serve yourself. The variety of pastries and sandwiches on offer was superb, I was a fan of the fresh, hot croissant and a sausage roll style thing. The coffee is from a machine, so some people might not like it, but I didn't find it that bad. And... More

This is a fast food outlet which has freshly made rolls and pastries. We were staying on the hotel upstairs and it was very convenient for a quick lunch.

We used the bakery on Alexanderplatz on our first day and were impressed by the price, quality and self service counters which made selecting lunch very easy if you aren't confident at speaking German. Sandwiches were lovely and there was plenty of seating outside. We returned the following day for coffee and again pleased with this for the price.

This bakery was near our hotel and was stocked with beautiful pastries, bagels, croissants etc. Very popular with local it was a great place to stop and grab a quick coffee and a pastry. Good quality food and very reasonably priced (a cinnamon Danish cost 99 cent!).

We found this bakery on our first morning in Berlin and returned over the next 3 days. You could not beat the 0.99 coffee, fresh 0.99 chocolate croissants or sandwiches. Perfect for a quick breakfast prior to a day of sightseeing

When I first arrived in Berlin (and in Germany) I was delighted with the pastries in the Back-Factory. In particular I loved the Quarktaschen. I was telling my German colleague about them. All she said was: "There are better". I didn't exactly believed her at the time, but a few weeks later I could tell her back: "Indeed, there are... More

Across the road from Checkpoint Charlie and the Checkpoint Charlie Haus Museum, a good place to sit and watch the world go by below from the first floor outside balcony. Great selction of reasonably priced food and quick as self-service. A better choice than McD next door? Guy on the till was very friendly and chatty.

Here in Brasil we call places like this "Self-service". You take a tray, pick the items by yourself and go to the cash line. There are tables to eat inside after paying, but if you want "to go" just put your items inside a paper bag instead of a tray. The cashier will open the paper bag to check the... More

Great place to have a pastry or a sandwich and coffee. It's sort of a do-it yourself place (you pick what you want with your own bag - there is no one behind the counter and then you pay up front).
