Frank Hearts Berlin
No matter how you decide to spend your day in Berlin it will most certainly start with one thing: Breakfast. Germans love an elaborate breakfast with many different ingredients so you will find much more than just a croissant and a coffee. We have now compiled a list of the 10 nicest places for breakfast in all the different districts of Berlin.
One of the all-time-favorites. Berliners have been coming to this French style cafe now for years and it has never been a let down. They have an all-day breakfast which is particularly good for all of those with alternative schedules. The options range from gourmet sandwiches, over mixed breakfast platters with high quality cheese and ham, to omlettes and the typical French Croque Monsenior which is by the way better than any Croque Monsenior that could be had in France. Their cakes and tartes are also some of the best in town. Your breakfast dreams will definately come true.
Spreegold is one of the new favorites in town. Their breakfast options are huge and clearly inspired by American style breakfast with pancakes, oatmeal, scrambled eggs with crispy bacon, different breakfast platters and also a lot of healthy options such as Paleo breakfasts and bullet proof coffee. With an additional variety of cake and sandwhiches you can literally have breakfast all day long. All the yogurt and milkshake options and the fresh juices and lemonaides are very good too. If you are looking for something other than breakfast they also have some nice homemade pasta dishes for lunch and steak and burgers for dinner. Spreegold has three locations, one in Mitte at Rosa-Luxemburg-Strasse corner of Dircksenstrasse near Alexanderplatz, one in Prenzlauer Berg at Hufelandstraße 20 and one in Prenzlauer Berg at Stargarder Strasse corner of Schönhauser Allee. The third one has a bigger space so it feels that they take a little bit more time and love in preparing the meals.
This cute little cafe just opened a few months ago and it really stands out amongst all the older, established and partially even generic places of the Kollwitz Platz Kiez. The interior design combines modern elements with vintage pieces which creates a contemporary yet cosy atmosphere. They offer an all-day breakfast with options including toasties, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, avocado salads and - one of the winners - the big breakfast platter. Along with a variety of pastries and cakes and some fresh mixed juices this makes for a lovely breakfast haven.
Milou is a brand new hotspot in hip Kreuzkölln right at the popular hang out place Admiralbrücke. Here you'll get meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with some amazing cakes. Especially the breakfast is amazing with options including delicious pancakes, scrambled eggs with vegetables, oatmeal and mixed breakfast platters. All the meals are prepared with a lot of love to the detail and mostly with local and healthy ingredients. The friendly staff will definitely make you feel comfortable.
Embedded into the impressive building of a former mental hospital 3 Schwestern is a restaurant and cafe that has a lovely beer garden in the yard of the building. It's a quite popular place for dinner offering typical German style meals such as Wiener Schnitzel and Pork Roast along with some Italian options. They also have a lunch menu from 12-16h and on the weekends from 11-16h they offer an interesting menu of international breakfast platters such as French breakfast with Croissant and marmelage, Bavarian breakfast with sausages and Brezel and English breakfast with baked beans and crispy bacon.
The Breakfast Market is a monthly event that happens every third Sunday at Markthalle 9. At this market you will get a lot of trendy and healthy street food options for breakfast such as avocado salads, eggs benedict, Vietnamese porridge, bloody marys, wheatgrass smoothies, Bavarian sausages, great coffee from local roasteries and also many traditional sandwiches and pastries. For all breakfast lovers there also some booths where you can get kitchen equipment and recipe books. On other days the Markhalle 9 is also an interesting place to visit as they have fresh local produce markets on the weekend and a street food market on Thursdays.
Proviant is a great deli selling delicious prosciutto and cheese from various countries and regions, bread, pasta, pesto, Italian cookies, wine, olive oil and more. It's a nice supplement for your food shopping in addition to the fruits and veggies you bought at the weekly market. They also make delicious sandwiches to eat there or to go.
For all gourmets this place is perfect for a deluxe breakfast because all the delicious types of cheese, ham, sausages and anti-pasti that you can normally buy from the counter for home you can get as a nicely arranged platter as an all-day breakfast.
Mogg&Melzer is one of the two restaurants in the former Jewish Girls School. It is quite popular as a lunch place for all the agency people in Mitte, but they also serve breakfast and as they are open quite late are also an option for dinner. Their specialty are delicious pastrami sandwiches and bagels, but the true star of this place is the cheesecake, undoubtedly one of the best in Berlin
Melbourne Canteen is French-Australian restaurant in the heart of Neukölln close to the Weser Kiez. It's one of the more modern places of the neighborhood attracting a very international type of crowd. They have wonderful options for breakfast such as Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine and pancakes. But they also have options for lunch and dinner such as tapas, pizza and salads. They do have events going on in their place such as a quiz night on Tuesday and they do get involved in other cultural events with their food. Overall a very nice place to go to with good coffee.
Located at the entrance of the Uferhallen, former workshop of the Berlin public transport company BVG, the Cafe Pförtner used to be the office of the gate keeper, hence its name. The cafe was introduced a few years ago as a canteen for all the artists that work at the Uferhallen and the performers from the Uferstudios from across the street offering breakfast, lunch and dinner for quite low prices while having a really exquisit dishes that you would rather expect from a trendy restaurant in Mitte. Over the years the cafe has also attracted the cool crowd from Wedding and Mitte who like to come here to have a peaceful and alternative place from the commercialised center. Especially in the summer it's a lovely spot to have coffee and cake outside in the sun or even in the abandoned bus that also hosts a few tables.
We normally recommend Pförtner as a restaurant for dinner, but if you are staying in Wedding and don't want to go too far they have a very simple and cheap but good cheese breakfast platter during the week with a few more options including egg meals on the weekend.
