We stayed at the hotel next door where they wanted €15 each for breakfast. I can speak basic German, but all the staff spoke English and would help when I struggled. Fresh Coffee and crossiant every day!

A place you can sit, chill, drink a good cup of coffee ( not a cup, a big mug ) and eat a good desert. The prices are affordable ( a coffee is 3,2 e ) and you have an hour free wi-fi. The staff...More

We stopped to warm up while walking around the city. The coffee was delicious, much better than Starbucks. Their selection of pastries was good and tasted homemade. Would recommend for a quick pick me up.

I am having coffee twice a day, every day. I have been in Berlin for 10 days. Half of the places uses a press-a-button machine which is not as good. This place uses a real professional machine. Moreover they use good beans for espresso.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
