Gay Jewel of the Motzstraße
Bang in the middle of the Motzstraße, clashing rather with glossy neighbour More, is this comfortingly olde-worlde and old-fashioned-gay establishment for breakfast, lunch and cakes, opened in 2013 by seasoned, charming and quietly cheeky restaurateur Felipe Visser, who in 1968 left Argentina for Berlin. Visser previously ran nearby restaurant Bamberger Reiter. This scaled-down operation preserves the essence of its predecessor with its über-cosy interior (antiques, traditional armchairs and sofas, froufrou decoration, warm lighting), unusually fine home-made cakes (from the recipes of Visser's Bohemian-Austrian mother) and excellently excecuted savouries, including recommended morning and afternoon breakfasts, plus snack-sized classics such as chicken schnitzel, sausages, goulash, salads, quiches, bolognese and sandwiches. And not at all overpriced. Other defining features include a family of chandeliers and piped-in instrumental versions of easy-listening standards. There's even an indoor Gartenzimmer out back. Outdoor tables at the front provide a dandy view of the catwalk. By 2017 Kalwil was starting to eat into More's business following the latter's new management.

    In its own category, and better quality than neighbouring More. Try for the window table (or sit outdoors).
