Wedding is a neighborhood still labeled as ‘up-and-coming’; Neukölln is a neighborhood that has already arrived, and it happened fast. This place is chock-full of must-sees and can’t-misses. Apart from the budding galleries and alluring manifestations of hipsterdom, there’s a slew of sensational restaurants and cafes, especially for the first meal of the day. This list will help you decide where to head for breakfast or brunch.

What was once an old dance hall is now the locale of hearty breakfast grub.
