Café-Restaurant im Literaturhaus

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 and lovely 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 not-very-expensive 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 10.30am—7.30pm (Sat until 6pm). U-Bahn: Uhlandstraße, just off the Kurfürstendamm.
