Chauvinistic or not, every single French person or Francophile will start to miss French food at some point. They cherish their cheeses and their mandatory glasses of rosé for apéro. A French foodie is pained to find the price of their favorite Brie jacked up in foreign supermarkets or an indelible part of their afternoon goûter woefully absent in their new land. For those missing home or just perhaps their favorite cuisine, there are many French food havens in Berlin despite its penchant for currywurst and all things potato. Indulge the nostalgia at one of these Francophile gems. Bon appétit!

Du Bonheur

Du Bonheur

French Pastries at their Finest

An aptly named shop when thinking of baked goodness, Du Bonheur is the feeling sweet tooths will experience when biting into their scrumptious French pastries. They propose a wide range of fresh and fine entremets, both seasonal and timeless – the ‘Dulcey’ and the viennoiseries are not to be missed. For those who aren’t connoisseurs of the wonderful world of French pastries, Du Bonheur even sells a bunch of mini Kouign Amann, the most famous viennoiserie of Brittany. They are very fatty and sweet, small, but mighty, indulgent yet necessary. And of course, the macarons here are the best in town.

Maître Philippe & Filles

Every truly French person will probably have eaten salted butter spread on a slice of crunchy baguette at some point in their lives

For the Best Beurre Salé

Every truly French person will probably have eaten salted butter spread on a slice of crunchy baguette at some point in their lives. And it is in remembering this moment that they miss France so much. If you’re homesick for this heavenly treat, then you should head to Maître Philippe & Filles and try out their ladle-molded salted butter, coming directly from Normandy. Their salted butter will make you feel transported back to France.

La Cantine d’Augusta

If You’re in Need of a Crusty Baguette

Well-hidden in Schöneberg, La Cantine d’Augusta is worth a little detour from the beaten tracks, if not just for the crusty baguette but for the amicable vendors. Freshly baked in the kitchens of the French embassy, this truly crunchy baguette invokes feelings of carbohydrate bliss. With a thin and super crunchy crust, very soft and crumbly, this is a real baguette and not the pseudo-one plaguing the aisles at the local Rewe supermarket.

Les Valseuses

Inventive and Classic French Cuisine

Les Valseuses is the place to find typical bistro cuisine with always fresh products coupled with right dose of mastery. The owners are Belgian and their amazing Belgian frites and ambiance make their ancestry palpable. Their fries are as heavenly as they are crispy; cooked twice in beef fat, as tradition requires. The main dishes cost on average a bit more than average Berlin prices, but real traditional French food, made with a lot of love and talent make it worth it. With a bit of luck, when someone’s birthday strikes, the owners are known to give a free shot of “Calva” to celebrate.

La Käserie

French Cheese Paradise in the Hauptstadt

Everything is written in the title, welcome to French cheese paradise! La Käserie has most of the main French cheese varieties, from Emmenthal to Reblochon, to more specific varieties such as Pélardon goat cheese (for true cheese lovers).To mitigate the harshness of those winter days, try some tartiflette. This is the place to go to find good products at very fair prices. The owner is very knowledgable and eager to share his love for fromage with his clientele. Take it to go, or sit down and enjoy a daily prepared cheese plate with some wine; it’s hard to make a wrong choice.
