“Zen and the art of coffee making”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The recommended route to Bonanza from Nordbanhof station is along the post poignant section of the Berlin Wall. But this small shop ought to be the poster child of the modern Berlin. Here encapsulated are the virtues of perfectionism and creative excellence through ordered patience but combined with passion and enthusiasm. This is what coffee shops should be like but it is also the kind of establishment that any great city needs. The only issue for their business model rather than the consumer, is that 10 minutes down the street, there was a second hit of intense flavour...but by that time it was too late to turn around an buy a bag of their beans.

“worth a try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This tiny cafe seems to be one of the most poular ones in Berlin.
Serves great coffee from different parts of the world. some good pastries are great companion.
Flat white is it's hit! Staff in multinational and super friendly.
Even if you stand in a line or drink your coffe pushed into the corner (only few tables and chairs as an outfit ) you don't feel like leaving this place.
Small garden and banches outside are worh a try even on the winter day.

“Really good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

The hip coffee geeks at Bonanza knows their stuff. Try the flat white. Note that they do not take Visa.

“Wonderful espresso, friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We are spoiled here in SF -- so many great places to get excellent espresso. We were told by several folks to pay this place a visit, and we're so glad we did. The staff was friendly and the drinks were wonderful, with some good pastries also available. The place is small, so don't expect to stretch out and read a book while you're sipping your drinks. There is space outside, though, if you feel the need to linger. Not far from there is a great flea market on Sundays, at Mauerpark.

“Best cup of coffee I ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Not much to tell. A small place of coffee connoisseurs that pay much attention to every single cup they brew. I was there twice in the winter of 2011 and had what still sticks in my mind as the best cup of coffee I ever had. The crew that works there is extremely friendly and they seem to be doing their work out of love and appreciation. Highly recommended. A bit out of the way in Prenzlauer Berg, but well worth the walk.
