I love weasels. It is this thing that I have always had, ever since I saw my first weasel in the wild. Fuchsbau in Kreuzberg is the first bar-cum-brunch-spot that combines my love for alcohol and food with my love for weasels. Its name already implies a link to foxes, but Fuchsbau actually sports a stuffed weasel too.

Sometimes you want to find a small, secluded and low-key place to shut yourself away in. With a little bit of wi-fi, a freshly baked bread roll and some strong and flavoursome coffee. Nothing too special or crazy, just a small moment of relaxation in Berlin’s busy and fast-paced life. Especially since autumn has introduced its cold chilly winds, beautifully coloured leaves and the promise of winter in the air.
Apart from Russian, Vietnamese and the Dutch cuisine, Berlin has so many more culinary countries to offer. Today we discovered a very special little place that is Hungarian of nature. Located not far away from restaurant Datscha in Friedrichshain, we found the small bar-cum-eatery called Szimpla.
Brunch in Berlin is an essential activity, also adopted by trendy parents in the outskirts of Prenzlauer Berg. In Kreuzberg and Neukölln brunching is still young and populated mostly by the trend setting hipsters that Berlin is so well-known for. Mathilda is one of these places, with its small-scaled restaurant located in the Graefestraße right in the middle of Kreuzberg.
Easter is probably the best time to visit Berlin. The last four years that we celebrated this bunny-induced and egg-rich holiday, it has been mindblowingly fabulous weather in the center of the Deutschland universe. Sunny, hot and basically smoldering like a summer’s day. So if you are considering visiting the German capital over Easter: definitely do it. And where to brunch? We give you some answers.
I wandered the streets a few Sundays ago in the the most Wochenende Bezirk of all: Friedrichshain. I wanted classy, slightly posh and simply cosy, classic and à la carte for my brunch location. The night before had lasted traditionally long and with a tired and slightly post-intoxicated smile, we came across Kuchenrausch (Rush of Pie). I used to suspect this place is only interesting for their pies and cakes, but Kuchenrausch is actually a great breakfast restaurant too.
On the beautiful Carl-Herz-Ufer with a stunning view of the canal languidly floating by and in the middle of Kreuzkölln – probably a bit more Kölln than Kreuz – you ought to pop into the brand new a.horn bar and brunch, lunch and dinner location. It is a restaurant, a brunch hot spot and a great bar all rolled into one.
I had mentioned it briefly before, in our best locations for drinking a cup of coffee in Berlin. But Café Bilderbuch (Café Picture Book) deserves a lot more than a brief coffee recommendation. It is a library, a place for art, a gallery and a restaurant all in one.
Berlin is a great city for languidly strolling around the town’s beautiful streets and enjoying its culture. And Berlin is also one of the best cities to explore all culinairy possibilities the capital has to offer by going for a long and elaborate breakfast – and take all the time you want, until it morphs into a lunch or a brunch. And we have selected some of the most luxerious, cute, budget and fabulous restaurants for doing just that.
If you live or hang out in Prenzlauer Berg on occassion, you may have heard of Anna Blume. It is a small (yet not too small) café/ restaurant and a plant shop rolled into one. It might come across as an odd, but very pleasurable combination and it is a place worth visiting. Anna Blume is the absolute crème de la crème when it comes to fabulous sunday brunch locations.
