Cafe's and bars worth your visit

Here are multiple ways and places to warm the bench on cold winter days, have a sip of juice, beer or coffee, the way you like it. Some more high end, some really humble, but all cosy and with good fresh stuff. Pic your favorite.

Barcomi's with Maiju on Sophienstrasse, Mitte. Expensive for Berlin, but really yummy sandwiches. See for yourself.

Scotch & Sofa with Saana and Rene on Kollwitzstrasse, Prenzlauerberg. Cosy and warm on a wintery night, they don't serve food but some snacks.

Laundry, in case you'd ask:
scarf - self made,
shirt - men's from H&M,
belt - vintage,
pants 9 euros from H&M

The original old Café Einstein with mom, on Unter den Linden, Mitte. Way better than the trendy chain-Einsteins. Reeeally expensive, so you should bring mommy along too. Really nostalgic and good too, feels like the cafés of Paris, and the mozzarella bufala is divine.

Turandot with Yvet, Sami and Pelle, on Bergmannstrasse, Kreuzberg. This was the cosiest bar we could find on Bergmannstrasse, that har recently become much more posh and polished than it used to be. Unfortunately you can smoke there, and everybody does, which I hate, but it's hard to find a cool place in Berlin that's smoke free. It's a great place for us kids to sit listening the stories of a legendary Rock-dude.

Hey sweets,
just one thing, the original Cafe Einstein is on Kurfürstenstrasse and it's called "Einstein Stammhaus".
The other one on Unter den Linden does belong to the chain, withouth being a coffeeshop, rather the headquater.
Go check out the Origninal (, which is in an old Villa with tons of history and stories to tell. There is also a book on it and it's listetd as one of the famous european Kaffehäuser.

Worth a visit. :* Ina

Anonymous: where is wonder woman when we need her!!

L: your place is by far the best, (and it's for free as well). It deserved to have its own post, not to be just bundled up with other places. :)

Rene: first i'm gonna open a cafe in our house, and see where it goes!

Ina: ok, sorry, wrong wording there...still, it's much "originaler" than the stand-in cafés :) I'll be sure to check out the one on Babystrich, whenever i'm rich (or in the need of a teenage hooker).

Maiju said...

Ina said...

Haha, don't be sorry! Just thought you'd wanna know :).
