We visit the place just to eat somethig traditional. At first we sut down to a table and into 3 seconds one waitress told us in very rude mood that the table we chose was reserved. I can tell you that the restaurant had another 5 simillar tables to that one so we change the table without making complaints. The... More

We went to Kuchen Kaiser to have some drinks. The waitress approached us without greeting us or saying any other word. It took ten minutes to serve three drinks (each separately). "A coke with lemon and without ice" (ordered in German) was taken for "Sprite". The straw that came with the iced coffee had a dead insect in it. The... More

This is a traditional, biggish place with a small beer garden outside. The Flamkuchen is quite tasty -- but overall the food is not what brings people to the place. The athmosphere in a quaint part of Kreuzberg, however, is quite fetching and the location near the former Wall recommend itself. We did not suffer any of the interminable waiting... More

I was there with my husband and my kids (between 19 and 2 years old) and we were very well received by all the waiters, who are very nice and kind, even though we didn't speak a word of German. We enjoyed a lot the food (nice schnitzel and strudel with cream:P) and music too. The atmosphere is cosy and... More

I was underwhelmed. I expected this to be a highlight, but it missed the mark. The food was good, but we were never made to feel welcome. Maybe we hit them on an off-nite

I was there for a biz lunch. A colleague of mine suggested to meet there and ordered the "leber und blut wurst" along with leberkase... all very, very good! If you are into this kind of food, the place is definitely a must.

We rented a flat in Mitie East Berlin and on our wanderings came across this watering hole which we ate in several times.The food was very good but far too much and is not over expensive.We found the staff to be very good and cheerful.

I have visited this restaurant about 4 times during the past three years, the food quality is generally ok but on the expensive side and tending to be overpriced for what it actually is. What it always stopped me from writing a review was the very negative experience with the service personnel and their attitude. I basically always thought I... More

Everyone seems to know about Kuchen Kaiser, on the Oranienplatz. Excellent baked tortes and cakes, really good coffee, make this a great stop on a walk through the neighborhood.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
