Amazing building. Ground floor is full of chocolate treats to buy with a vast variety of products. First floor is the cafeteria-restaurant.

Located on the corner of Gendarmenmarkt stop here for a chocolate indulgence that will not disappoint. Chocolate sculptures and shop downstairs and the cafe is on level one. Go here to enjoy a hot chocolate or coffee if you prefer accompanied with a variety of mini chocolate offerings. A very enjoyable experience overlooking the square. Thanks for the vote if... More

A perfect place to buy gifts (or present for yourself) downstairs, and a restaurant upstairs serving full meals (each dish containing chocolate) as well as cakes and desserts. My family each chose a gorgeously presented dessert-style treat which they thoroughly enjoyed. It all looked a bit rich for me, so I settled for a beer! Does get busy around late... More

If I were to visit Berlin again this would definitely be at the top of my list to go back to - we were really looking forward to coming to F&R and it lived up to expectations. There was no wait for a table in the cafe, our order arrived quickly and it tasted amazing. The shop also has a... More

Only looked around the Shop so can't comment on the Restaurant or Cafe but here goes; so many choices of chocolate available at this store, I bought a few bags for all the offices I work in back home and they all said it was gorgeous, I really liked the Dark Chocolate Brandenburg Gate I bought as well. Plenty of... More

Worth going upstairs for a hot chocolate and something to eat. The lunch menu is good, with unexpected chocolate in various dishes (like soup!). Service was great and prices quite reasonable. You can also sample many of the cakes/desserts they sell in the shop downstairs. The shop is worth seeing if you like to overload on Chocolate! Good variety of... More

If you're a chocoholic, this is the place to come. On the corner of Charlottenstrasse & Mohrenstrasse, near the magnificent Gendarmenmarkt, this establishment claims to have been making fine chocolate in Berlin since 1863. The ground floor is for sales of all their handmade chocolate and elaborate iconic buildings made from pure chocolate, whereas the first floor is the cafe.... More

I love this place. Cafe is nice escape from bustling Gendarmenmarkt. Chocolates are out of this world as are the cakes and hot/cold drinks in the cafe. Never get tired of F&R.

This place is definitely worth a visit during your travels, especially if you have children. It is in a prime and beautiful location, right across the street from the famous Gendarmenmkt. The chocolate sculptures are marvelous (and wonderful photo opportunities), and the chocolate is top quality. You can buy excellent gifts/souvenirs for your friends back home, too. Be sure to...

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.
