There’s no better way to spend a few relaxing hours in Berlin than in one of the many cafés strewn about the city.
The cafés in Berlin come in many shapes and sizes and can be found all over Mitte, Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg, and West Berlin.
Some of the cafés double as bars, lounges, or live music venues, but what they all have in common is a laid-back attitude, good food, a decent cup of Joe, and a warm environment.
Some notable Berlin cafés include Café Morgenrot where a socialist attitude prevails and all workers share in equal pay and profit. Another is Schwarzes Café, a West Berlin institution with great balcony and patio seating. A third is Barcomi’s, which has a big student clientele and the feel of a Parisian sidewalk café. And finally, there’s Am to PM, which is exactly as the name implies – open 24 hours a day and hosts patrons looking for brunch, lunch, dinner, or whatever soaks up booze at 4am.
Whether you’re looking for a quick meal, the perfect espresso, a place to do a little work, or a relaxing setting to hang out with some friends, the cafés in Berlin are the perfect retreat for some daytime leisure.
