JULES GEISBERG: SPECIALITY COFFEE AND CAKE SERVED IN A HISTORIC POST OFFICE — RECOMMENDED BY LUCIE EON

JULES GEISBERG: SPECIALITY COFFEE AND CAKE SERVED IN A HISTORIC POST OFFICE — RECOMMENDED BY LUCIE EON

After the success of their cafe at Gleisdreieck, Jules opened a new spot – Jules Geisberg – near Schöneberg’s Viktoria-Luise-Platz in September 2020 and what a beautiful space it is to sit in! The building is the former neighborhood post office, above which hangs a life-size statue who seems to wonder where all the postmen have gone. The interior design is minimalist with elegant marble details – a perfect complement to the warmth and friendliness of the team. Funny story: the cafe’s barista crew were actually friends before they started to work there together. They were attracted by a gastro business that cares about its people and the ethics behind the products they offer, including the coffee which comes from the likes of North Star and Vote. If you’re strolling around the area, do yourself a favor and take a moment to savor a piece of their fluffy banana bread, cheesecake – or both – along with one of their gorgeous drip coffees in my fave seat: the cozy corner bench.

NULL PROZENT POP-UP: ALCOHOL-FREE SPÄTI & BRUNCH AT HALLESCHES HAUS

NULL PROZENT POP-UP: ALCOHOL-FREE SPÄTI & BRUNCH AT HALLESCHES HAUS

Sekt for brunch, a beer with lunch and a glass of red wine after dark: it’s easy to see how alcohol can become a regular part of our lives. But are there any good ethanol-free alternatives? If any exist, you will certainly find them at the Null Prozent Pop-up, a completely alcohol-free drinks kiosk at Hallesches Hausrunning throughout the whole of “Sober October”. In addition to usual suspects like Rotkäppchen sekt, awaiting you at the Kreuzberg shop are a range of over 100 drinks including many innovative local brews, all with 0% alcohol. One highlight is the distillates from Berlin-based Easip, who brew using natural and plant-based raw materials, with no artificial flavors, sweeteners or sugar added. You can enjoy your drinks directly in the shop’s neighboring backyard or head out to the canalside opposite. For the full experience, head to the Hallesches Haus lunchroom from 10h Wed-Sun where you can build your own brunch from the new menu, accompanied of course with a tasty zero-percent tipple of your choice. Cheers! (Text: Bui Luu Quynh Nguyen / Photos: Bui Luu Quynh Nguyen & Null Prozent)

GREENFINCH FOR POSITIVE VIBES AND GOOD COFFEE — RECOMMENDED BY LISA KIESEWETTER

GREENFINCH FOR POSITIVE VIBES AND GOOD COFFEE — RECOMMENDED BY LISA KIESEWETTER

When I first came across Greenfinch it looked more like a construction site than a cafe. But soon owner Vincent transformed this Bötzowkiez space into a welcoming, cheerful vegan venue whose individual interior really stands out with its fresh, post-modern look. For brunch, pancakes, toasted banana bread with peanut butter & jam and fresh croissants are a top choice, with lunch dishes like the delicious stuffed sweet potato available from 12-15h. “We want to convey a conscious and sustainable lifestyle, without creating the feeling that you have to do without anything,” says Vincent. As part of this, the cafe also offers yoga classes and meditation in the Greenfinch Backyard plus co-working spaces to bring together like-minded people. Positive vibes all round.

TWO SISTERS AND A DOG: CAFÉ FLO — THE NEW BRUNCH SPOT IN PRENZLAUER BERG

TWO SISTERS AND A DOG: CAFÉ FLO — THE NEW BRUNCH SPOT IN PRENZLAUER BERG

A rescued dog was the inspiration for the name Café Flo, located between Eberswalder Straße and Mauerpark. The restaurant was founded by sisters Lea and Rachel after they finally decided to turn their dream of running their own café into a reality. Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by the smell of homemade croissants, and the shimmering green tiles, homemade bar, and comfortable chairs that invite you to linger a little longer. On the menu you’ll find childhood dishes, such as eggs in a glass with fresh herbs, butter, and baguette, as well as stuffed papaya with coconut yogurt and berries. We especially recommend the croissant with pear, melting goat camembert, honey, and thyme. In addition to the in-house creations, there are also cakes from What Do You Fancy Love and other baked goods from all-time favorite Albatross. A little tip for sunny days: find a spot on the terrace – it’s the perfect place to people-watch. (Text: Luise Schmedes / Photos: Ramona Razaghmanesh)

TWO TRICK PONY: HIGH–END BRUNCH IN BERGMANNKIEZ — RECOMMENDED BY KIM BENJAMIN

TWO TRICK PONY: HIGH–END BRUNCH IN BERGMANNKIEZ — RECOMMENDED BY KIM BENJAMIN

Finding an innovative brunch place in Bergmannkiez can be a challenge, so it’s lucky that Two Trick Pony has come to fill this void exceptionally well. Located near Sudstern, this brunch/lunch cafe offers table service, a well-spaced terrace and a menu focused on local products, with bread from AlbatrossWeide Ei eggs, Alte Milch cheese, and coffee from Vote. After moving to Berlin two years ago, owners Jason Starmer and Gary Young founded the cafe in February 2020 and with it have created a space with a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Menu highlights include the tomato tonnato salad, their full English breakfast, and the three-cheese toasted sandwich (vegan options also available). For smaller bites, there’s lemon drizzle cake and – my favorite – the toasted coconut bread. Those craving something alcoholic can find numerous variations on Aperol Spritz (try the grapefruit prosecco) as well as natural wines from Vinalupa & Vinicultur, which can be enjoyed for weekend afternoon apero. Two Trick Pony has quickly become my new favorite – maybe it will become yours too! (Text: Kim Benjamin / Photos: Comfort Studio for Two Trick Pony)
