Great breakfast with nice atmosphere

Perfect for a sunny morning to sit inside or in the terrace. Fresh juices and good flavours. I could add a smile to the waiter but he was quite alright.

The service were bad (2 guys) We ordered 2 coffees and 2 breaskfast, the coffees had too much milk and got cold after 30 minutes waiting for the breakfast (the place were not busy at all). Food were below the average. I don't understand why people call that a breakfast.... It were a bread, butter and a few fruits only!... More

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.

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.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
