5 Places to have Brunch in Berlin you definitely can’t miss

Where can I have a nice breakfast or a good brunch? It may sound weird, but that’s what I always ask myself when I’m on a trip, especially if in a big city. Breakfast is my favorite meal and when I’m abroad I love finding out amazing places to have breakfast. I’ve been to Berlin many times, so I can share with you a well selected list of places to have breakfast and brunch. Some of them are in the very heart of the city, some others are in the neighborhood where my sister lives: Friedenau. It’s just a few stops away from the touristic circuit and with its quiet but fancy atmosphere it’s the perfect place to start the day. At the bottom of the page you will find a map with all the locations.

BARCOMI’S DELI

Barcomi’s Deli is Berlin’s hipster soul. If you don’t know where it is, you wouldn’t even notice it because it’s very smartly located: hidden in an inner courtyard of a building in Berlin Mitte. This is not a tourist trap at all. If you are a customer of Barcomi’s Deli, first, you have good taste and then, you must be a local. It has quite a lot of seats and a huge choice of bagels, cakes and hot drinks. I love it!

Top choice: 5-cake-selection dish of your choice (achtung! Their tasters look more like a regular piece of cake)

SCHILLER BACKSTUBE

In a side street at Potsadmer Platz Schiller Backstube Deli is the perfect place to start your touristic itinerary or to have a break. There’s no never-ending menu as in Barcomi’s Deli, but it still has a good selection of cakes, bakery products, sandwiches and soups. It’s not that big but it has quite many seats and its walls are decorated with shelves full of books and magazines. The blackboard behind the counter makes it very fashionable.

Top choice: the cinnamon roll.

LULA AM MARKT

Don’t even think about going to Lula am Markt for a Sunday brunch without previous reservation (at least a couple of days)! Friedenau’s inhabitants love meeting up here with family and friends to have brunch, so it’s always overbooked. Very nice decorations and atmosphere. Huge (only auf Deutsch) menu for any time of the day, but if you are looking for a brunch in Berlin, that’s the place to be.

Top choice: the French toast. D-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

PANE AL CAFFE’

As the name suggests this place has Italian origins. But no worries, you won’t find crowds of Italian people struggling for an espresso. With its wood tables and the open kitchen, it makes you feel at home. Excellent choice both for breakfast and brunch. They have several combinations, some of them typical Italian, some others more international.

Top choice: the breakfast menu that meets your taste. Mine included a hot drink, fresh-squeezed orange juice, a croissant, yogurt with fresh and dried fruit and bread with butter & jam.

FRAU BEHERENS TORTEN

If you are looking for a good piece of cake, that’s the best place ever. Located in Friedenau, it’s a tiny café in Belle Époque style, where you can find delicious, gorgeous cakes. Highly recommended for a relaxing break in Berlin.

Top choice: a traditional piece of any German cake. They have different tastes every day so ask them for advice!

  1. Sarà che è ora di pranzo e io non ho ancora fatto colazione, ma sto letteralmente sbavando!
    Son tornata da poco dalla Germania ed ho adorato i dolci tedeschi. Certamente mi segnerò i nomi di questi locali con la speranza di visitare presto Berlino.
    Quel french toast è mooolto invitante 🙂

    • Ciao Roberta! 🙂
      Confermo, era davvero squisito come sembra!
      A Berlino i cibi invitanti di certo non mancano, soprattutto se si parla di dolci.
      La prossima volta che sarai in città non perdere questi indirizzi 🙂

      A presto!

  2. Ciao Martina,

    seguo da tempo il tuo blog , complimenti, è molto curato e mi piace davvero tanto.
    Io e una mia amica volevamo visitare Berlino dopo gli esami di maturità. Volevo sapere se Berlino è veramente una città così sicura come dicono o no. Da quello che ho potuto leggere su internet sembra di sì, con le dovute cautele ed evitando certe zone. Volevo chiedere a te un’opinione visto che tua sorella ha vissuto lì/vive lì. Giusto per poter rassicurare i nostri genitori -.-”.
    Grazie in anticipo e ancora complimenti.

    • Ciao Emma,

      grazie per seguirmi, sono felice che il blog ti piaccia!
      Berlino è una città sicura e più controllata rispetto ad altre, con le precauzioni da tenere a mente in qualsiasi metropoli.
      Quindi sempre occhi aperti (ma non perchè si parla di Berlino), e godetevi la città, che ha tanto da offrire! E almeno un brunch mi raccomando.. 😉

      Martina
