“Cosy café with German style cakes and good coffee.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

I found this café very cosy and would definitely recommend a visit if you like German style cakes; these are unfortunately not at all my cup if tea, I was hoping for some good rich chocolate cakes but the choice was limited to different variations of "Streuselkuchen" (crumble topping cakes) and a "Käsekuchen" (German cheese cake) with warm plum sauce. I tried the latter and found it fresh and nice, just not my thing.

I have not tried any of the savoury bistrot type dishes but they did look nice.

The staff is friendly and service is fast.

The fournishing is very interesting and reminds of old times; old caraffes and jugs everywhere, on shelves and in wooden cupboards, candles, some paintings and a collection of old cherubs on the walls: most things are for sale, along with gift-wrapped truffle scented oil.

What I found unacceptable is the poor conditions of the bathroom. Very dirty; it'd be a good idea for the staff to keep an eye on it during the day, as that poor cleaning standard does not reflect at all the flair of the place.

I recommend to reserve a table at weekends as it does get quite full and the space is limited.

“Gemutlich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Value for money. Friendly service and nice breakfast for 2. We had an plate with cheese and meat and warm fresh bread. The interior is cozy and reminds you of old times, like 1900.

“Best cafe for brunch ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

It was like arriving in a nice little oasis after some bad brunch experience across the street... Nice, quick, efficient service, delicious food AND the house tea you have to try!!! If I come back to Berlin this will be the Cafe I must come back to.

“Cozy cafe with fresh, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This is my fav cafe in Berlin. Small and cozy, but always inviting. You are handed a one page, hand written menu with seasonal dishes using only fresh ingredients. The house tee is a handful of fresh herbs (seasonal), fresh slices of ginger and thin slices of fresh strawberries. It is always served in a huge mug and so inviting. Homemade German cakes are always yummy.
I love this cafe.
