When I visit Berlin, I always make a stop in this little place. I like the coziness there. Nice people and the absence of music makes everything interesting and warm. You meet locals but also tourists who want a real Berlin atmosphere!

Really good schnitzel. A bit expensive maybe but very nice. Small variety in food and beers but the best quality. Highly recommended!!!

A must do. It's so exactly the cafe for locals in happening East Berlin. Plenty of people enjoying endless conversations, consuming wine or coffee while presumably solving major world problems or intellectual conundrums. Get in early. Gets busier as the night progresses. Food is good...More

We have visited this bar a few times. It always has a very cool atmosphere regardless of the time of day or night. It doesn't matter who you are, what you wear, or how old or young you are.... But don't tell the tourists!

Failed to get in here on Saturday night so returned on Sunday. Tremendous food. Huge portions as ever in Berlin. A starter of mixed salad for one was ample for two, as the waitress advised, as was cheese for one. Perfect veal schnitzel and good...More

This was recommended by a tour guide, and although it was off the beaten path it was worth it. A Courteous staff, helpful to those of us who didn't speak German. And the food and beer was excellent.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
