Beautiful and delicious pies and cakes. You can also watch them being made. Usually a line but worth the wait!

If you are expecting fancy, pretty cakes/tartes or gringo style bakery/pastries, go get them somewhere else (plenty of places catering for those tastes in cosmopolitan Berlin). Mr. Minsch has the yummiest cakes in the German Kuchen tradition: unfailingly big, tasty, and made to look as if they came from Oma's kitchen. The ambience is quirky, the service is both friendly...

One of my favourite bakeries in Berlin, serves wide variety of delicious cakes, plus tea and coffee. Staff speak OK English, prices reasonable - about €5 for coffee and cake. I like to come here for breakfast!

Visited with family. Looking forward to coffee & cake after reading great reviews. What a disappointment, the staff member was very rude & unfriendly when we enquired about whether she took cards as well as cash. We decided to leave as frankly, there are many more cafes in Berlin where you get good coffee, cake & nice helpful staff! This... More

A few minutes walk from the S- or U- bahn of Yorkstrasse resides a bakery wonder! Though the sitting area has only enough indoor seating for less than 20 patrons, there is also some outdoor sitting or take-away options. The coffee selections are well done and there are always 15 to 20 different torte/cake selections to choose from -- all... More

A lot of people praise it as THE place to have cake at, so I had to try it. I went a couple of times now and though the coffee was always good the cakes were usually pretty dry and nothing out of the ordinary. Simple cakes like the ones my mum does: nice rhubarb/apple/blueberry crumble, good cheesecakes, dry chocolate... More

I come from London so everything seems cheap/good value to me.. but this place serves massive slices of very delicious home-made cakes for a few euros. Service was not exactly welcoming and warm; rather more dour and workmanlike I'd say. Interior decor is fine, nothing particularly special. But what do you want from a cake shop? Good cakes! And this... More

We found this in an otherwise excellent guidebook... But the cakes were very mediocre, staff not very friendly and the tables outside on this beautiful summer day not very clean...

Fantastic cakes, not too sweet, not too heavy. Small coffee and tea selection. Nice to seat outside. Inside is small and a bit dark. Cakes available to take out.

This place has great reviews so I went twice with friends and both times we were very disappointed. Both visits all of our cakes were very dry. On my first visit I had the Eierliqour and the second time the chocolate-chocolate and was so unhappy with both that I didn't finish them (and I love cakes!). The Eierliqour was over-baked... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
