“Rudeness & trash”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

It takes a lot to shock me.
But, the manager (or maybe the host?) of the Cafe am Neuen See succeeded 2 mornings ago. My guess was that he was in the military and had a momentary relapse thinking that my two children and I were under his command. We didn't even ask him anything, we didn't even address him, yet he barked orders at us. All I could say was, "Wow! That was amazing. Kids, if I ever find out you have treated someone so rudely, you will be in big trouble!"

The setting seems idyllic at first glance, but once you look closer, you see that this would-be-paradise is overrun with litter and trash. There are bottles, coffee cups, and packaging of all sorts lining the shores of this little lake. We took out a row boat for a while and collected a few bottles & whatever trash we found floating in our path. We could have filled the boat with bottles and trash had we taken the time to do it.

We will never ever go back here.

“great place for a beer and a pizza”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Stopped for a beer and a pizza. Both were great and the price was good. Grab a beer and watch the boats. Lovely beer garden experience

“Great location for a Beer Garden experience”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Though it carries the name café, this is really a fine beer garden reminiscent of the best in Bavaria. Its setting in the Tiergarten next to a little lake is very nice. The ambience very friendly, the food (at least what you get from the self-service section is either traditional Bavarian--Leberkaese, potato salad, pretzels, chicken, weisswurst and the like or not very Bavarian--the pizza looks very good). The is a restaurant part attached but we didn't try it. The beer is freshly tapped (Loewenbraeu products) and the wine ok. On Sundays at lunchtime they have a nice live jazz group playing. At night piped in music, but again nice jazz like sounds--no omp pah pah band. A great place to have a bite, drink a fine beer and people watch. Also a good place to mingle with Berliners and visitors.

“First Beer Garden Visit”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We were taken to the Biergarten by a local work related acquaintance. The atmosphere was nice but you had to tolerate near by smokers because of the outdoor venue. The Beirgarten is behind the café and is buffet style. We ordered beer and pizza but there was other selections available. Both were excellent, but you must like thin (very thin) crust pizza. We finished off with a stroll through the park.

“Quiet breakfast spot”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Our hotel was really close by so it was the perfect place for a quiet breakfast before heading in to the hustle and bustle of Berlin. Good range of breakfast options, friendly staff and a peaceful setting (at 9 o'clock in the morning, anyway!).
