“Interesting concept: food and books”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Nice place for breakfast / lunch (not sure about diner), in an alternative environment: you're surrounded by books they sell for 1 Euro each.
And, very important: outdoor seating with a great view on the impressive Allee that was used for DDR parades.

“An open-minded café: the real Berlin thing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is a great place to relax with a book or a newspaper (or your on-screen subscriptions for those about technology - wifi included in the price), sipping some nice coffee or a delicious home-made soup, in a quiet and modest atmosphere, with oldish armchairs, a shabby piano and free seating all over. My personal choice for food here are soups. This shop is a clever symbiosis of a small book store and a local family-style coffee-shop, similar to some of those in downtown NY or SF bay area. Evening readings or music events are organised regularly, check the schedule.

“Best Brunch EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I have been to Cafe Tasso in Berlin on several occasions now.

I was introduced to it initially by a friend from Berlin.

This venue is perfect for a quiet, leisurely, romantic breakfast. The setting: a beautiful second-hand book store!

My wife and I were only last in Berlin for a weekend visit, but managed to squeeze in not one, but two brunch visits to Cafe Tasso during our trip.

We love the "Tasso" breakfast, which is a share breakfast for two including a glass of prosecco each. Included are a whole host of beautiful treats including cheeses, cured meat, soft boiled eggs, beautiful homemade hummus, salad, fruit, delicious pastries, beautiful fresh bread, honey, etc etc.

I highly recommend this hidden gem in Berlin!
