“Good place for a break while sightseeing.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is a nice place to stop for a rest, especially with outdoor seating available during the summer. The prices are comparable to other cafes in the area, and the service and atmosphere are fantastic. They serve an "Einstein Beer," which is funny given that Albert Einstein was a teetotaler. Still, a good drink.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

a nice place to have a coffe or even to have a snack.
The best is probably the location and the atmosphere that you can feel inside.

“Great coffee bar and small meals”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This atmospheric coffee bar serves light meals and other drinks. The menu was different and interesting but very small and there is also a big lounge at the back with a view onto the street behind, where one could take ones time and enjoy newspapers and magazines. Its situated in the same house as Einstein stayed when he was in Bern. We had the special melted cheese, one did both of us. It was not fondue or raclette! Very good. Service was good too.

“Einstein in the air”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

It is very centrally located right underneath the home of Einstein. Great atmosphere with good quality plates to accompany your wine or beer or any drink. Great coffee and deserts. After you finish with your lunch or brunch, you go up two stories and you find your self in Einstein's house. The experience is great. You just breath the air that he has breathed some years ago. Don't miss the opportunity if you are in town.

“great place”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Einstein ist simply a great place to go. For a Coffee in the morning, any time during the day or a drink in the evening with friends. The food is great and innovative, every time you come, there will be another surprise, thanks to the innovative team.
The ambience is excellent and the staff is great. Friendly and motivated. You can feel that everybody enjoys work. I personally appreciate that there also is no problem for women to go there alone or with other women.
