I have visited this restaurant about 4 times during the past three years, the food quality is generally ok but on the expensive side and tending to be overpriced for what it actually is. What it always stopped me from writing a review was the very negative experience with the service personnel and their attitude. I basically always thought I... More

Everyone seems to know about Kuchen Kaiser, on the Oranienplatz. Excellent baked tortes and cakes, really good coffee, make this a great stop on a walk through the neighborhood.

If your idea of Berlin was to eat typical German food you might feel let down, but wait until you get to Kuchen Kaiser: typical German cuisine with loads of delicious southern dishes, in a friendly and lively atmosphere and with a great customer service. Cheap and tasteful with huge portions.

We really enjoyed the brunch here. It is not expensive and they have delicious cakes. There were German families also eating here so it is a restaurant frequented by locals. Try it!

Nice cakes in this place! Although they seem to serve many more dishes. We enjoyed the fabulous German Kuchen. Make sure you have a German bank card or to bring cash.

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

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.
