This is a great place to go if you want to sit outside and drink a coffee or beer. In the heart of Prenzlauer Berg and with a view of the Wasserturm you will soak in Berlin. It is a favourite of mine to take visitors or to go for an afternoon coffee.

We had a full breakfast, it was nice but service was bad. Guy didn't speak more than five words. We didn't appreciate that even though the place was Russian inspired.

Me and my girlfriend visited gagarin after have read about the amazing breakfast/brunch in a travel magazine. The headline was "best brunch in berlin " which you can immagine boosted our expectations. The café is located in a lovely part of berlin with quiet and green surroundings. The food was however not that great as promised, it is basically a... More

Been going here for about a fortnight an I have really enjoyed their breakfasts and coffee. Staff are not overly friendly but they are not rude and do not expect this bogus 'tipping' tend sweeping Europe.

Gagarin is waiting for you with wide open arms, in a 60's interior design, laid back service and good food. We tried the borscht soup, potato vareniki and an excellent schnitzel, all washed down with a german bier. Everything was plenty and good. Service was good but relaxed and we enjoyed our evening without rush.

The meat smelled delicious here but we wanted something light. And so we took a salad; But finally this was a salad of the more boring kind. Even with some leafs of Lettuce getting brown. Drinks are good here.

We stopped in for Sunday brunch & were happily surprised with the wide selection of unique salads, along with other warm dishes, pastry, fruits & breads. For 10Euro/ea I think it's a very good price for brunch. It was a warm sunny day, so the patio was a perfect spot to sit & have a leisurely brunch. We would definitely... More

I have been a regular at this place for months and used to love its laid back, comfortable charm. But recently they seem to have changed management or staff and it’s 100% for the worse. Their demeanor is surly, rude and self-important, with a really discourteous, perfucntory attitude towards their customers. They have also implemented some kind of arbitrary wifi... More
