The 5 places where you should try a typical Berliner brunch Berlin

Café Morgenrot

Kastanienallee 85
Prenzlauer Berg

There used to be a lot of open venues called ‘Kollektiv’ in Berlin but unfortunately they are slowly disappearing. However in Prenzlauer Berg you can still find this cafe and it’s the real stuff, not the gentrified version. From Thursday to Sunday, they serve a very good brunch here and you can eat as much as you like for a price between 6 and 12 euros, depending on the state of your wallet. Bring your punk attitude.

Industry Standard

Sonnenallee 83
+49 (0)30 6272 7732

In the still very working class neighbourhood of Neukölln, you’ll find this wonderful restaurant and bar, where you must try the epic Sunday brunch. The cooking style is rooted in the classic French cuisine, but with a radical and modern twist. They also have biodynamic wines and they make their own bitter.

Silo Coffee

Gabriel-Max-Str. 4

Silo produces speciality coffee and is an ideal place to go before or after strolling around the flea market on the Boxhagener Platz. It’s one of the few really good breakfast places in Friedrichshain.
