Neighborhood: Prenzlauer Berg
Description: We at the St. Gaudy Cafe are a conglomeration of folk all living and loving in Berlin.DescriptionSt. Gaudy is a multi-lingual café and events venue located in the heart of Prenzlauerberg. As a café, St. Gaudy maintains a friendly, multi-lingual team of staff, a very affordable menu and a great vegetarian selection of foods. The café possesses a welcoming and casual environment, with monthly/ever-changing photo/drawing/painting exhibitions of local artists on the walls. St. Gaudy is more than a café: with 2 years of experience promoting a diverse range of events, St. Gaudy is also a venue for various activities in the areas of music, literature, language, film, art, photography, dance, chess, book exchange and much more. Our mission is to open doors for a different surprise in every event, maintaining a both professional and intimate ambient, which brings together distinctive circles of people in one single network setting. Examples of our fixed-events are a weekly Language-Exchange program, a monthly screening of both stimulating and provoking selection of documentary/film followed by discussions, plus evenings of unique and international live music brought about by the Berlin Folk Society. Customers are given an opportunity to actively participate in all events, to network, socialize, and to become part of a wider community. St. Gaudy is definitely a place not to be missed in Berlin. You can find us just off Schönhauser Allee, on the corner of Gaudystraße, a bit further down the road is Mauer Park, with Schönhauser Allee Arcaden not far to the north.

“Shockingly overrated”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

This cafe somehow has a great reputation but it is undeserving. It is a complete tourist trap with average coffee, a very limited menu and terrible atmosphere. Avoid like the plague!!!

“Best in Town”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Visited here on 10th June from Washington,England. Whole experience was fantastic. Set in a brilliant part of the city,the cafe has a great atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and customer focussed. Food and drink all top class. We came back to the area on 3 more evenings to eat in teh many surrounding excellent restaurants and bars. If I re visit Berlin I will be back here for coffee etc again. -- Thanks to the great staff for their friendliness.

“Not Worth The Trip”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Having had the boiled eggs I can say the food was very reasonably priced and enjoyable. However, the atmosphere let this place down. It was pretentious and not at all welcoming. If your in the local area with a MacBook then great...if not don't bother...

“Great cafe”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

After three visits this week, I will say that I like like cafe. My daughters apartment is 30 meters away and it is great to have a cafe run by english speakers. The coffee and food prepared here are first rate. The staff is helpful and go out of there way for the customer . Stop by for coffee and free internet.

“Excellent cappuccino, great breakfast. Must visit!”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

There's something special about this place... The coffee is great, the breakfast was very good as well. Cheap prices, big portions. We shared a big cup of yogurt with fresh fruits and both had boiled eggs with toast. It was all delicious, the staff was super friendly. If you want a bigger breakfast, they only serve that after 10AM, between 9-10AM there's only eggs and croissants etc.. The prices are very good, we paid just 12€ for 3 dishes and 2 cappuccino's. If you can sit outside there's a pleasant view on the U-bahn passing by.
