It's Sunday. You're hungover. You're in Berlin, and you need to feel human again. Look no further ladies and gentlemen. We got the low-down on where to find Berlin's most bad-ass brunch. From the sweet combo of maple syrup covered American style pancakes, fruity kebabs and some nutritious vegan delights. If there's one thing Berliners certainly know how to do, it's brunch.
Spreegold offers a great selection of breakfast dishes, delicious sandwiches, scrumptious pancakes and every kind of egg dish you can imagine! It's reasonably priced, centrally located beside Alexanderplatz and the service is always good! You can find out more about it here.
If you're heading to Checkpoint Charlie you'll be delighted as I was to find this cafè snuggled away only a few metres away from Checkpoint Charlie itself! Just look at this picture above, imagine chomping away on some organic yogurt, sipping on a fresh latte, maybe even a cheeky cool orange juice on a warm summer morning. Sounds amazing doesn't it? You can find out more about this wonderful gem here.
8. The Barn
If you're into more alternative vibes then The Barn is the place to be! You'll find the minimalistic design of this cafè refreshing. So if you're really feeling the sweats taking over, then indulge in their muesli and a cooling iced coffee. Prices are fairly decent, located in central Berlin (the Mitte) and you find out more about The Barn here.
Sometimes there's nothing better than a big greasy breakfast, and that's exactly what Burgermeister offers you. With all burgers, including veggie friendly options under €5 it also makes it a great place for a cheap eat. Easily accessible by the U-Bahn, you'll find Burgermeister located under Schlesisches U-Bahn station. What makes it a little quirky is that this food stall is actually a converted subway bathroom! Don't worry it has been completely renovated, but it's makes the experience all the more alternative.
6. Wonder Waffel
Most of us can thank the Turkish people for the introduction of kebabs into our lives. But what if there were kebabs... with chocolate and berries? Pretty mind-blowing I know. If you got a sweet tooth then head over to wonder waffel for a delicious twist on the Turkish cuisine. Not in the mood for a chocolate overload? There's plenty of fruit to choose from! You can find all the info on their Yelp page here.
5. Cafe Dritter Raum
Cafe Dritter Rum is really popular with the locals, so you know it's good. They have a great variety of brunch dishes. From cold meat, cheese, fruit salads, and pancakes. On weekends they have an all-you-can-eat buffet with tea or coffee for just 10e! That's a lot of healthy goods you can stock up on, let alone nurse that hangover from last night's pub crawl. Find all their info here!
A quaint cafè tucked away in the centre of Mitte. BöseBubenBar is a favourite amongst those of the Bohemian scene. If you're mood for a quiet lunch, accompanied by your book then this is the place for you. They have a small, but good, range of lunchtimes delights such as quiche and great coffee. You can check out their Yelp page here.
3. Pêle Mêle
This highly renowned all vegan cafè can please even the biggest carnivore. I'm not even vegan and I adore Pêle Mêle. It's also mad cheap. You can find this little health haven on Innstraße 26 in the Kreuzberg neighbourhood of Berlin. You can check it out here.
Waffles are so hot right now. And if you the best of the best you should head over to Cassonade and sample the waffle goodness for yourself! They also have an alluring array of crepes to choose from, sweet and savoury! It's wallet-friendly too! Check them out here.
1. The Sixties Diner
Now if you're in need of being surrounded by English speakers, myself a native English speaker, I understand when you're head is screaming, you're finding it very hard to focus and you're in desperate need to get the taste of cheap wine and cigarettes out of your mouth. The Sixties Diner is the ultimate comfort zone. With a huge range of breakfasts dishes all under €10 it's pretty fantastic. You can find all their info here.
Happy brunchin' ladies and gentlemen.
