These are the best Cafés und Brunch Venues in Berlin!

Slept in? Then it's time for a delicious breakfast in one of Berlin's many great cafés! Annabelle Georgen, editor of the queer Berlin city magazine SIEGESSÄULE, regularly enjoys the huge selection of brunch and breakfast options on offer in Berlin. Here are her top 10 recommendations for her favourite cafés!

Perfect setting for a romantic brunch: the "Anna Blume" in Prenzlauer Berg.

Anna Blume

The café-patisserie, Anna Blume’s beautiful terrace provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic summer brunch in the idyllic Kollwitzkiez. The 3-tier cake-stand breakfast is a real stunner, with cheese, sausage, fruit, and jams beautifully presented. You should also definitely take a detour into the interior of the café. At the huge counter, you can choose from over 20 cakes a day, baked in the café's own adjoining patisserie.

Pub in the evening, café in the morning: The "Geist im Glas" in Neukölln.

Geist im Glas

During the week, Geist im Glas is a trendy Neukölln bar with a sophisticated cocktail menu and is furnished with carefully selected second-hand furniture. On weekends, however, you can have breakfast there in grand style. Staying true to the spirit of the location is not difficult - how about imbibing an invigorating Bloody Mary instead of coffee? The menu features American-style specialities, from pancakes to black bean stew and waffles with chicken.

Meeting place of the gay community over a rainbow cake: The "Romeo and Romeo" in Schöneberg.

Romeo und Romeo

Romeo and Romeo is a popular meeting place for the gay community - and it is also located in Berlin's gayest corner, in Motzstraße, Schöneberg. There is a convivial atmosphere in the café, especially in the late afternoon. In addition to their coffee specialities, there is a large selection of tray baked cakes on offer. In particular, the rainbow-coloured lemon cake is a real eye-catcher.

African-Italian fusion cuisine in Prenzlauer Berg: the "Ataya Caffè".

Ataya Caffè

The cosy Ataya Caffè, complete with African décor, offers unique, exclusively vegan, African-Italian fusion cuisine. Mention must be made of the colourful, generous Sunday brunch, whose menu changes week by week.

Perfect for a decadent coffee and cake break in a plush atmosphere: "Frau Behrens Torten".

Frau Behrens Torten

You might be tempted to ask yourself whether you’ve arrived in a doll’s house when you take a seat on one of the pink velvet chairs in the small café-patisserie, Frau Behrens Torten. This impression is reinforced at the abundantly laden cake counter. The gigantic and ultra-colourful cakes look too good to be true. Fortunately, however, the cakes are both genuine and extremely tasty. Frau Behrens Torten is the perfect location for a decadent coffee and cake break in a sumptuous atmosphere.

It pays to queue early at the popular "Roamers" in Neukölln.


The breakfast plates served at the hip breakfast café, Roamers, which exudes California charm, all look like abstract paintings. The egg specialities and their colourful side dishes are put together with loving attention to detail. No wonder the dishes are picture-perfect and Instagram-worthy. Since the café is not only popular but also tiny, a visit comes inevitably accompanied by a wait. It's worth queuing early.

Südblock is not only one of the most popular bars and dance floors of Berlin's LGBTQI* community but is also an absolute must for Sunday brunch lovers. The huge, weekly brunch buffet offers breakfast classics, as well as a large selection of Turkish patés, hummus, a variety of salads, with cakes and desserts on offer too. Vegans won’t be disappointed either.

Generous breakfast plates with Mediterranean specialities are conjured up by "Weder Gestern noch Morgen" in Friedrichshain.

Weder Gestern Noch Morgen

The breakfast café, Weder Gestern Noch Morgen, is located just a few metres from Boxhagener Platz and is worth a detour. At the same time, you could visit the flea market there on Sundays. In a colourful and cosy atmosphere, you can enjoy generous breakfast plates laden with Mediterranean specialities - for example, a Turkish antipasti plate or scrambled eggs with pastirma or sucuk (Turkish beef cold cuts or sausage). This is accompanied by Moroccan mint tea, homemade ayran (savoury yoghurt-based drink) and freshly squeezed smoothies. Delicious!

Offers a menu with a bourgeois flair: the "Café im Literaturhaus" in Charlottenburg.

Café im Literaturhaus

In the garden of the venerable Literaturhaus you can have brunch in the open air, surrounded by greenery. The breakfast menu is in keeping with the location and its Charlottenburg surroundings, namely bourgeois, with an old European flair - in other words, classic and sophisticated. In addition to croissants, egg dishes, and breakfast plates, there is a very tasty selection of cakes.
