The Breakfast Route: Berlin

There is nothing better than a good breakfast on a weekend morning. It always feels like a treat after a stressful week. Luckily, Berlin has plenty of delicious places to start a day with a great energy kick! Whichever you prefer is offered: sweet, healthy, eggy or extra caffeinated.

Both fortunately and unfortunately, Berlin is fond of small cozy places, so be aware, some of these places will get crowded really fast (especially during the weekend) so get up early to get a place to sit without queueing (yeah, I know, it is not the best weekend advice, but I assure you that it will be definitely worth it!)

3. Allan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar

You can find great food and ever better Bloody Mary’s in this lovely Australian café that moonlights as a bistrot wine
bar with a Mediterranean cuisine. In their words: “ABC focuses on quality breakfast, brunch and lunch with a high regard for good cup of coffee but also a great place to seat, relax and sip some good wine with friends, family and even meet new people”.

Definitely sit outside if the weather allows… and if you love salmon, you know what to do…

Craving donuts in the morning? This is your place to go! Charming little space with a great vegan selection. Donuts,  sandwiches and coffee is great as well. If it’s sunny get a couple of gorgeous looking donuts to go on and head down to the park!

Cinnamon rolls heaven! Go for a classic plain option or dare to try one of the many tasty and original options this bakery offers, they’re all fresh and absolutely addictive. Sandwiches and other breakfast options are also available, but definitely don’t skip the main thing there.
