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.

Main reason I came here was to find somewhere comfortable to sit and use the wifi...
The flat white was really tasty (boy can they do a great microform!) ... The vegetarian stuffed peppers tasted great... Even though only filled with rice and lentils, the spices with the yoghurt dressing and hummus blended into something very yummy.

Unfortunately wifi was too slow to use for browsing. I couldn't even log into my bank account! Bit frustrating....

I love the Gaudy cafe . I have been a regular for a good while and find it to be the perfect place for a restorative smoothie or a powerful espresso . The food is great and reasonably priced and the company is convivial . It hosts regular live music , poetry readings ,art exhibitions and a very lively language exchange, which serve to make it both a cultural hub and a meeting place for a diverse mixture of people. The St Gaudy is a credit to the community and Charlie is the best dog in the world , even if he does look like a frou frou fox .

Popped in for a smoothie and cake. Nice enough and friendly enough staff but don't understand the amazing reviews some have left. Opposite an unattractive building on a busy road And inside the decor was nothing special and a bit mismatched. Serves a purpose but the 5th best place to eat in the whole of Berlin? No way!

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!!!

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.
