Convenient for visiting reminants of the wall.

Visited the place on the off-chance having seen it from a passing tram. It was ok and I cannot complain about our food or the service. One of the waitresses struggled a bit in English and I suspect that this could result in some customer dissatisfaction as it seemed to gerneate some... read more

Promises far more than it delivers! Ordered a coffee and asked for a food menu that despite asking twice never arrived! Service was pathologically slow and staff rude! Despite poor service the server tutted when we didn't leave a tip... Avoid at all costs!!

The staff were rude, false advertisement outside saying 'free wifi' when they don't allow customers to use it, and the coffee was watery and tasteless and too expensive. The manager was ruder than the staff. The cafe attempts to look like 'hip' Berlin on the outside but is a blatant tourist trap as soon as you get inside. Walk 5... More

The menu is geared more towards lunch than a big meal. The food, whilst simple, was delicious and a reasonable price. The cafe has a trendy outside appearance and the staff were extremely helpful. Of note the menus are only available in German but the staff were expert in their command of English and more than willing to provide translations... More

Great quirky place with fab memorabilia and the young guy was so friendly and helpful so was the waitress but our food was pretty bad. Cold fried eggs put onto freezing cold plates. The beans were server cold - is that normal here? The toast was more like slightly dried bread. Marks pancake was burnt. And small Shame really. Just... More

crappy food ever. Rotten salad with pieces of sponge. When I complained to the stuff, they were very rude and unpolite, saying that it was not true although I was showing them the dish with the food. Very expensive though. Stay far from it, waste of money and time!

Ridiculous small amount of food and not fresh. They charged us for the bread supposed to be included in the breakfast and it was expensive. Very rude, slow and and messy service. A place to avoid!!
