Chocolate lover's paradise

My two sons and I went to the chocolate cafe on the second floor where we had desserts and hot chocolate (I had the Kaffee Kirsch). It was amazing - my youngest son was in heaven. It was a lovely experience and I highly recommend the Marzipan Mini-torte.

Our Berlin trip was very hectic, that's why we ended up in this place half an hour before it's closing. (and it closes at 8PM!) We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids. I don't think the waiter liked any of this, cause the dislike was written all over his face! However, he still waited on us, and... More

Ate in the restaurant here as the menu sounded interesting. Our food certainly tasted very nice (I had sweet potato soup with chicken satay, boyfriend had beef with sweet potato fries) but I'm not entirely convinced that the chocolate really added anything. Desserts were delicious (if completely unneeded given the cake we'd had at lunch!). It's worth trying out if... More

Nice cafe on the second floor with lots of decadent offereings. Very Viennese-like. The shop is a great attraction of its own with great chocolate replicas and creations.

The largest chocolate shop in the world! Last time in Berlin, time did not permit to look inside this wonderful shop, instead admiring the talent at building various Berlin landmarks from chocolate e.g. the Brandenburg Gate and Berlin Reichstag. These plus others in the various windows. This time we visited twice! The first occasion we had chocolate drinks and a... More

Very nice service, extremely polite and well mannered. I can't tell you about the chocolate smell in there...OMG! Best thing ever. A lovely place to see but even better, invest in some of their chocolate! It is an investment :)).

I went there alone and the service is very nice and considerate. I order a hot chocolate and it was very good. The dessert is also nice.

As much as being the biggest chocolate shop in the world, it's also a museum having chocolate models of some of the most famous of berlin landmarks made in chocolate. The chocolate are also great. We got two of the great desserts from here one choclate and one mango both really good and at a very reasonable price. Go just... More

Lovely restaurant and cafe with a great view serving good quality food with a chocolate theme. It is only open during the day. Service the best we had in Berlin. Shop also fantastic and very reasonably priced.

Ate at the cafe (again) and the food was as good as ever. Had the ice cream this time and it was sublime. Iced chocolate drink was also superb. We will return at Christmas. Love this place. Oh and the shop downstairs is well worth a visit too, best chocolate in the world in my opinion. Definitely a must visit... More

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.
