100% love it
Elegant but casual oasis

One of four 'literature houses' in Berlin, this establishment opened both its bookshop and café doors in 1985. The decorative 19th-century building makes for an elegant, lovely and civilised café experience, with generous opening hours accomodating breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus the quieter in-between and late-night moments. Garden tables are highly sought after, and the relatively inexpensive and beautifully presented food is tasty modern European. The literary apsect of the enterprise regularly stages three or four midweek evening readings. The bookshop opens Mon to Sat 10am—6pm. U-Bahn: Uhlandstraße, just off the Kurfürstendamm.
