Sankt Oberholz, Mitte
Forget about the well-known and usually overcrowded Sankt Oberholz Café at Rosenthaler Platz in Mitte. The owners opened up a new space this year to deal with the demand, and it is more cozy and not as loud as the one at Rosenthaler Platz. The second Sankt Oberholz is just a stone’s throw away though and is very relaxed. Also, working at Sankt Oberholz may bring you good luck, as it said to be the birthplace of some big internet startups.
