This corner cafe-cum-flowershop is a classic breakfast stop in the nicest part of the boho-trendy Prenzlauer Berg hood. It's named for a 1919 dadaist poem by the German artist Kurt Schwitters and charmingly decorated in an Art Nouveau-inspired style with soft colors and curvaceous booths. Wake up to breakfast platters quite appropriately named for flowers and featuring quality ingredients along with freshly made spreads and salads. The 'Alpenrose', for instance, is a mouthwatering potpourri of creamy goat cheese, Tyrolean ham, Swiss sausage salad and fresh fruit. 'Oleander' teams parma ham with provolone and marinated vegetables. The piece de resistance, though, is the 'Anna Blume Special', a three-tiered extravaganza that gives you a little taste of everything. The extensive menu also includes sweet and savory crepes, salads and sundaes. In the afternoon, devotees invade for the pretty homemade cakes.
- Breakfast: "Anna Blume is hugely popular but they don't take reservations, so on weekends come shortly after opening to avoid a wait, especially if you want to nosh alfresco on the sidewalk terrace."
- Best for Breakfast Because: Creative homemade treats, lovely presentation and a relaxed setting give this darling cafe an edge over the competition.
