Café culture is rife in Berlin, and its not hard to find a nice place to stop for Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake.) This made selecting the 10Best both a blessing and a curse as there really are a number of places (cute, quirky or otherwise) worthy of a mention. And so, this list developed into more of a compilation of ten un-missable places, varying in specialty and atmosphere but never quality. So whether you’re after a world class coffee on-the-go, a family friendly place to enjoy a nice drink and delicious nibbles or a cozy spot to sit with a refreshment and connect to free wifi to get in touch with your loved ones at home, you’re bound to find something suited to your needs.
Berlin has a fixation on fair-trade, organic and bio products with many places putting real emphasis on homemade and seasonal dishes. The care and quality is evident in the final product, meaning you’re never left disappointed with your purchase and making avoiding temptation far less beneficial and that much harder! I’ve certainly done the rounds in the sweets testing department during my time in the city and have very rarely been let down by my choices. During your stay, I would highly recommend sampling (from the relevant recommendations on this list) fresh waffles, homemade ice-cream and an exquisite cappuccino or latte- you’ll find they’re among some of the finest in the world.
