Stumbled upon this very cool place whilst exploring the area around Checkpoint Charlie. There is a good vibe to the place and serves some really good quiche washed down with some less common German bottled beers. Although it was very busy (though nothing like Checkpoint C) the service was very efficient, the staff informative and nothing was too much trouble. Seems like a bit of a hangout for the student/academic scene, with an internet section at the back, but we were very happy & comfortable chilling out and getting our bearings as newly arrived tourists.

Iy is very cosy inside , but you can noyice the post modern scene when you sit down. It is reasonably priced for the amount of tea you're getting here. Selection of cakes are small but eccentric. Very smiley staff as well.

First off: amazing coffee...on par or even a touch above Monmouth in London (my favourite cup). ?3,20 for a latte is extremely reasonable. (Starbucks is right down the street and sells a terrible ?4,50 latte).
They play funky downtempo beats that do not overwhelm your conversation. The grey floor and white and pine furniture work well. There is a table in the back with people on their MacBooks writing the world's next breakthrough novel and there is some media literature for sale. The wall mural is a bit trippy to look at.
A definite must if you want to start your day with excellent coffee.

Thanks for the other posters here on tripadvisor. So nice to find this place so close to the uber-touristy area near Checkpoint Charlie.

Had exceptional cups of coffee, two very fresh and tasty sandwiches and a slice of homemade carrot cake. Good, friendly service and a nice area out the back.

..and all at a very reasonable price.

Nice atmosphere, cool staff, very good coffee but also nice cakes, healthy juices and sandwiches. A 'must visit' Simply ignore checkpoint Charlie and ofcourse Starbucks. Keep going and it will pop up on your right hand side.
