The Berlin Mitte district is basically one big tourist trap with very few places to serve authentic German cuisine - like the Cafè Lenet. From the outside it looks a bit like an old-fashioned neighborhood place in a non-fashion way. But do enter and you will find a family-owned confiserie that serves gorgeous sponge cakes and all the other sweets... More

This is a very nice little place that serves really excellent breakfast. Since Cafe Leten is also a bakery, pastry and bread is always fresh. Coffee is really good and they serve also freshly squeezed juices. We had "Leten breakfast", which is meant to be for 2 people. The selection of meat, cheese, vegetables and fruits was great. The portion... More

We also happened upon this when completing a morning run through Berlin. The two sisters who own this cafe were very kind and helpful, and make great food. We enjoyed the Camembert sandwich and lox sandwich along with excellent plum kuchen and croissants. We enjoyed it so much, and the rates were so reasonable, we stopped in two more times... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident, and what a wonderful accident it was. Snowing outside we wanted somewhere warm and comfortable to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. We ordered a platter to share between the two of us, and we couldn't have chosen better. We had a platter of meat, cheeses and fruit. Accompanied by 4 bread rolls, croissants and... More

I stopped in around noon at this beautiful, very clean cafe with pleasant outdoor and indoor seating. An English menu was available as well as breakfast! Absolutely perfectly cooked scrambled eggs beautifully presented with delicious fruit and two excellent rolls. That meal was called The Dubliner and I can't recommend it highly enough. I will definitely be back.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
