Gay landmark for more than 50 years
Café/bar on two floors, with major al fresco situation and expanded crusing potential during the summer months. Reliably decent for breakfast, lunch and beyond, though the food and coffee are not of a vital standard. Attracts gay and straight locals and tourists, and business picks up during the Easter BLF leather weekends. Berio is Berlin's answer to Hamburg's Cafe Gnosa, though Gnosa bakes the much better cakes. Under new management as of 2009, with food, service and atmosphere not quite what they were. The Maassenstraße can't compete with the Motzstraße for top catwalk status, but traffic remains heavy enough for a decent regularity of people-watching, and centre-stage Berio does the trick despite some competition from neighbouring Impala [see entry]. No longer open 24 hours a day. U-Bahn: Nollendorfplatz, then a two-minute walk.
