cake and beer

Went here for the great local beer and black forest cake. Service was typical of Europe, no problems. Cake was good and the neighborhood was very rich and interesting. Patio seat a must.

The staff were so friendly and helpful, the restaurant was busy and the traditional food was delicious! I have never tasted cheesecake like the one I ate here. It was so, so good :D Would definitely recommend.

As a proper German, I like my cakes. For a place whose name suggest "Emperor of Cakes" the cakes are pretty piss-poor. Locate din touristy Kreuzberg, just off Oranienstrasse, its a nice stop after shopping/drinking/people watching, with an outside seating area. They serve German food, which looked nice enough, and beer on tap, which, of course, is drinkable. This being... More

We stumbled on this restaurant after a long walk. There seemed to be a halo around it - perhaps I was dehydrated - but I was so happy to see it. It sits along one side of a little piazza across from a small park. The interior decor was warm and simple. There were tables and benches on the street.... More

The food was very good, also the drinking card but the service was horrible. The last 1,5 hours we´d got no service and had to order and pay inside. The waitress was talking/ flirting with her boyfreind and got no time for us :((

We decided to head for Kreuzberg for an evening out but hadn't really thought about where we would eat. We tried Max und Moritz but they were fully booked so we ended up at Kuchen Kaiser somewhat by default, drawn by the bright lights of the restaurant visible across Oranienplatz. We discovered that the restaurant has a long and interesting... More

We arrived past 9pm looking for a place still serving dinner and we were glad to stumble into Kuchen Kaiser. What seemed like traditional good quality German food, good service and lovely outdoor seating. Would recommend the goats cheese risotto balls

Good German food but poor service. As a group of 7 people walking in without a reservation we were seated easily. The waitress didn't come over often and was very cold to speak to. She became irritated quickly when we asked for sauces. The food was enjoyable and we had a variety to chose from. The price was average .... More

Awful, awful food. Without a doubt the worst burger I have ever had the misfortune to order. This was made worse by knowing there were so many nice restaurants nearby! I will usually eat most things but couldn't manage more than a few mouthfuls. Maybe we just ordered badly however I don't really know how our food could have been... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
