I have to be honest and say I think the place is on the limit regarding cleanliness but the food is simply so tasty you close you’re eyes while chewing to get the full experience – problem solved.
Though I don’t eat gluten I have a weakness for french toast and after a french-toast-free year I decided to treat myself. What a treat! I’m sure it’s lethal if you’re not a pro.
Besides the toast the Mexican style breakfast plates are pure foodporn.
Now you know where to go this weekend.

You’ll find plenty of places in Berlin that offer “healthy food” but at nine out of ten places I visit I’m disappointed by the quality and the choice of ingredients.
So what a thrill today when Martin introduced me to a new place in Brunnenstrasse, close to Anklamerstrasse – of course I forgot the name. I might suffer from holiday brain?
I believe the super friendly owner, who learned his profession at Palace in Westberlin and a high end French restaurant in Knesebeckstrasse, was called Jonas. A young guy who I reckon will go far with the skills he and his team proved today.
Went for a small salad (which was plenty!) plus a bowl of bolognese which was deliciously sweet – I’m guessing from the use of carrots. (I’m a sucker for sweet.). Vegetarian, vegan, paleo, raw – all possible, I believe.
Also make sure to have a fresh apple juice! – the best I’ve ever had! Tasted like biting straight off a perfectly ripe apple. They have some special machine for it..?..holiday brains.
Update: it’s called Joris!
I heard about this Copenhagen “duk-op” restaurant from Danish, Birmingham-based, DJane Denise who recently had the pleasure of joining an event.
Rødder : changing locations and changing prices according to the menu (Denise paid less than €25 for 3 courses and a glass of wine) but true to the sentiment to always exploit regional and seasonal produce and pursue the Nose2Tail concept.
Follow them on Facebook for updates.
Excuse me, but there is just more appreciation of aesthetics in Copenhagen compared to Berlin. I do love the unpolished Berlin “we just do it out of passion” touch that you experience here at these kind of “entrepreneurial initiatives”. But sometimes I wish it would be executed 100% instead of a lazy 85%. If you know what I mean?
Don’t think I ever posted these photos from 1900 Café Bistro. Went there ages ago. Some time last fall. But I’m pretty sure nothing has changed since then.
Worth a visit if you want to escape the Prenzlauerberg/Mitte crowd, enjoy solid food, great coffee, a variety of teas, and get the feeling of an “out of town breakfast”.
Vanilla. A recently opened cupcake place in Prenzlauerberg that also serves frozen yoghurt. Pretty clever. And looks yummy! How about a snickers cupcake? – brilliant!
One piece €2,90 or four half pieces €6,90. More cakeries should adobt that concept. Perfect to share! – for two with an appetite. An absolutely mouthwatering selection at Barcomi’s in Sophie-Gips-Höfen.
Unfortunately the bistro style decor doesn’t reach the same level but then there’s take away – or tables outside in Summer.
Eventually, Ami’s planned trip to Buenos Aires was “on Sunday” and now, the little Italian place just has to stay put and wait for another three months – cause I have to go with her, you see.
BUT maybe one or the other of you readers didn’t hear about the place yet and is better at making plans meet. Viel spaß!
…just a little bit of madness.
