Been on your feet for a while Bernauer Strasse looking at Cold War history? The information panels and images all the way up the street give a great, absorbing social history, and this cafe is ideally placed about half way or so on the route, and makes for a great choice for coffee and a bite to eat. They do... More

Ost-West Cafe is located near the Berlin Wall Memorial walk. We went there for a lunch while visiting the memorial. They have a great selection of food and beverages and importantly for us, some vegetarian options too. We had veggie burgers and I also had some carrot cake which was delicious. Our coffees were also very good! The decor was... More

On the way back from the flea market, we found this cafe and decided to have a quick-late lunch. Their lemonade was great in the middle of a hot day - though had a bit much sugar in it. We choose pasta, which was also alright. Nice and attentive service.

This cafe occupies a prime spot on the corner opposite Bernauer Strasse U bahn and overlooking the Berlin Wall memorial. Inevitably it caters to the tourists visiting the site, although the prices are not extravagant given the location. Interestingly the menu has a heavy Turkish influence suggesting there is more to the Ost West name than the two sides of... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch. The cafe is just next to the station Bernauer Strasse and the Gedänkstätte Berliner Mauer. Staff was very friendly and the food was served quickly. Had a burger with french fries. We sat outside and enjoyed the spring weather. Lovely experience.

Ambient cafe with old army uniforms and pictures of the Berlin Wall in its day dotted around, literally across the street diagonally from the Berlin Wall monument. The staff love their jobs and really make an effort with you. Catering requests were all accommodated. We went to a lot of different places and attractions in Berlin and have to say... More

Located just on the border this café has wonderful pictures on the wall and models as well as great coffee. Outside you see some great wall paintings and a car from the past. Great place to take a break while exploring the wall.
