Our favorite places to eat and drink in Berlin
Berlin was a vacation from our vacation. What a great city! From tasty, family owned cafés, to huge and modern co-working spaces, our experience was truly different here, especially when it came to food.
Many thanks are due to our Airbnb hosts, Adi and Mishka, for some excellent restaurant recommendations in Neukölln.
So here it goes! These are the best restaurants we visited in Berlin, some which we frequented more than once.
Named after the owner’s adorable pup, this café employs deaf or hearing impaired staff. We must have visited at least ten times because the chef/owner always knew what we wanted to order!
The menu includes an array of homemade organic meals and the servings are quite generous.
Worth a taste: our usual – garlic & sausage scrambled eggs with a side of yogurt with muesli and fruits.
Boddinstr. 57, 12053 Berlin | Opening hours: 10am-8pm
Fuchs & Elster
This tapas-style restaurant offers a mix of Italian/Spanish cuisine and a wide selection of wines.
The menu changes often, and you can find the daily offers listed on the wall.
Worth a taste: any Gnocchi you can get your hands on.
Weserstr. 207, 12047 Berlin | Opening hours: Restaurant – open daily from 6pm
Ice cream! Ice cream! Perfectly located ice cream! Grab a few scoops of creamy Gelato before heading off to Tempelhof Park.
Don’t be afraid if the line’s out the door. It is absolutely worth the wait.
Worth a taste: all flavors looked great, but try a combination of raspberry and stracciatella.
Herrfurthplatz 6, 12049 Neukölln, Berlin | Opening hours: 1-7pm
Roamers Coffee & Booze
It’s hard to describe Roamers’ uncomplicated nature. The actual location is tiny, so be ready to get nice and cozy with your neighbor. Still, its earthy hipster feel will make it all okay.
The meals are healthy, homemade, and beautifully served.
Worth a taste: homemade granola with fresh berries.
Pannierstrasse 64, 12043 Berlin | Opening hours: 9:30am-7pm (closed on Mondays)
The best spot for a fresh Asian fusion dinner. From homemade dumplings to their (very original) salty lime soda, Dr. To’s puts a nice spin on traditional dishes.
Although extremely tasty, the servings are noticeably small, so price-wise it can be a bit of a splurge!
Worth a taste: Mama’s homemade pork dumplings.
Weichselstr. 54, 12045 Berlin | Opening hours: 6pm-2am
Berlin seriously spoiled us with amazing food. If you ever visit, we hope you enjoy these spots as much as we did!
