This is kind of a home-grown chain in Berlin with a handful of other locations. This particular location is right in the heart of the city serving good coffee and light breakfast options. The coffee is well prepared and their beverage selection is extensive. It’s a great spot to grab a bite to eat and a coffee or sit down and watch the bustle of Mitte carry on outside. The pastries are superb and the meal options are delightful yet light.
