Misirlou is a little gem, a Greek-style eatery and café. Perfect for a cup of hot chocolate (actually one of their specialities!) or an elaborate brunch/ lunch with friends. Also suitable for bringing along your work documents or laptop and spending hours sipping hot beverages.

If there is one topic I feel particularly passionate about, it is about brunch buffets in Berlin. A brunch buffet is a set-up at a restaurant, with large bowls and (heated) containers with pre-prepared breakfast and lunch foods. I recommend no-one to engage in one. Why?
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.
