Chocolate cake with lemon? Chocolate cake with pear filling? Me neither! But one was as delicious as the other (we shared) and I shall be going back to Tasso soon to try their lunch menu - all organic, too. Their programme of evening events (folk, jazz and more) looks good too. Furniture shabby but comfortable, German daily papers ready to... More

Great spot near the Frankfurter Tor. Secondhand books for 1 EUR a piece, food, cakes and coffee. Good place for a break...

We were lucky to find this as a 5min. walk from our AirBnB. Great little bookshop/cafe. Their breakfast places are artfully made, fresh, and delicious, and served until well into afternoon. Their coffees and teas are likewise enjoyable. Quite recommended!

After a walk down Karl Marx Allee carry on about 100 yards down Frankfurter and you'll find this Café come bookshop. I thought it was outstanding, we stopped and had a beer and a healthy and tasty lunch. It's not to everyone's taste but the service was friendly and efficient. Free wi-fi too for those who like such things.

Cafe Tasso is one of those places that you just have to love. It's a combination between a book store and a restaurant cafe. The book store is specialized in second hand books which are all sold at 1 EUR per piece (I think there is some discount if you buy plenty, like 6 for the price of 5 or... More

Nice spot with a great breakfast/brunch selection & good coffee. Love the jazz music in the background and the book store concept. Very funky in a hippy kind of way. Defo worth. Visit if you are in the area

Nice place for breakfast / lunch (not sure about diner), in an alternative environment: you're surrounded by books they sell for 1 Euro each. And, very important: outdoor seating with a great view on the impressive Allee that was used for DDR parades.

This is a great place to relax with a book or a newspaper (or your on-screen subscriptions for those about technology - wifi included in the price), sipping some nice coffee or a delicious home-made soup, in a quiet and modest atmosphere, with oldish armchairs, a shabby piano and free seating all over. My personal choice for food here are... More

I have been to Cafe Tasso in Berlin on several occasions now. I was introduced to it initially by a friend from Berlin. This venue is perfect for a quiet, leisurely, romantic breakfast. The setting: a beautiful second-hand book store! My wife and I were only last in Berlin for a weekend visit, but managed to squeeze in not one,... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
