You can sit indoors but much nicer outside and the breakfast at only 10 euros each is a real bargain with rolls, butter, jam, tea, coffee, fresh orange juice and a couple of fried eggs thrown in for just another two euros. Watch the world go by outside the East side station and close to the east side gallery.

Basically it's what you'd expect from an american diner/sports bar! Kids loved their milkshakes and the burgers were good. Service good and quick and waiters friendly!

This is a great place to go for a meal and a drink before catching a train. Its only a few minutes out of town and easily reachable on the S-Bahn trains and worth a visit whether catching a train or not. The menu covers local, European and American meals so all should be catered for. Soft drinks, hot drinks,... More

Eat here on he last day of our stag trip. 20 hungry lads enjoyed the meal and drinks. Good service and excellent WIFI service. Located within the station it is a easy place to find. Food & cocktails were perfect for what we needed.

chicken burger with guacamole -would not advise. too simple and a bit flat in taste.. better to go with a regular burger.. for the same value you definitely get much much better burgers in Berlin.. but in Ostbahnhof the most decent place to have a meal, the rest is just Starbucks, Donuts..

Finishing off the East Side Gallery Walk we were looking for a small bite and a refreshing drink. This was at the Station "Ostbahnhof", so usually no great expectation for proper Food. But this place was good, nice choices and good Drinks. Value for Money fits. I recommend especially the Maracuja Aperol Sprizz.(Price 4.90 €)

They have menus in English however the translation is incorrect in some cases, especially surrounding Ham and Eggs.

"PLAY OFF - that's American gastronomy & lifestyle with the distinctive 50's style."

Die 7. PLAY OFF American Sportsbar am Berliner Ostbahnhof, in direkter Nachbarschaft zur O2 World, der East Side Gallery und dem Postbahnhof.

Hervorragende Amerikanische Speisen - Spare Ribs, Burger und das klassische Amerikanische Frühstücksbuffet von Pancakes mit Ahornsirup bis hin zu röstfrischen Kaffekreationen. Auch regionale Speisen und ein kulinarischer "Kurztripp nach Italien" erwartet die Gäste im PLAY OFF.

Natürlich fest im Konzept der PLAY OFF American Sportsbars verankert - Sport Live Übertragungen jeglischer Art. Public Viewing vom Feinsten. Neu ist die riesige Außenterasse und Öffnungszeiten von 0 bis 24 Uhr an 7 Tagen in der Woche!

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
