House of Small Wonders
The House of Small Wonders is a new favorite of us thanks to its unique interior and atmosphere. It’s a lunch and breakfast place that serves lovely things such as Croque Madame, French Toast, Granola with yogurt, soups and a variety of sandwiches. What’s interesting here is the combination of Japanese dishes for lunch and French dishes for brunch.

Open Mon-Fri 9-17h, Sat-Sun 10-17h

This French-style cafe is an absolute classic in town and you can’t get a better breakfast platter (for this price) than their mixed breakfast full of specialty products from France and the Alpes. I also recommend the Croque Monsieur and the Chevre Chaude salad. The Rhubarb tarte is also quite delicious.
Fleury, Weinbergsweg 20, 10119 Berlin-Mitte
Open Mon-Fri 8-22h, Sat & Sun 9:30-20h

If you love international variety you are gonna find a lot of options at the 3 Schwestern restaurant and beer garden at Kunstquartiet Bethanien. It’s a lovely summer location and a really laid-back atmosphere. No fuzz here. Choose between French, Italian, Bavarian, Austrian, Mexican and English breakfast (and a few more).

This cafe and restaurant in the South of Neukölln is a really cozy place and the owners put a lot of love to the detail into their dishes which you can see in the heartbreakingly sweetly arranged breakfast platter. We also recommend their cakes because they are to-die-for. They also serve lunch and dinner here by the way.
Ungeheuer, Emser Str. 23, 12051 Berlin-Neukölln
Open Sun-Thu 10-24h, Fri & Sat 10-02h

Silo is a new cafe in Friedrichshain that has made quite the splash in the neighborhood. They are really creative dishes with poached eggs, mushrooms and avocados on their menu that include a lot of vegan and gluten free options as well. Coffee lovers will be delighted to get the coffee from The Barn here.
Silo Cafe, Gabriel-Max-Str. 4, 10245 Berlin-Friedrichshain

Proviant is a great option if your love your cheese and fancy sausages. The breakfast platter is full of delights from the Alpes, France and Italy and their bread is amazing as well. You can also buy all the ingredients in the shop and have your breakfast at home here as this is mainly a deli.

Betty ‘n Caty
This charming cafe in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg will seduce you with their yummy avocado sandwhiches and the delicious porridge variations. They also have an amazing strawberry-rhubard-crumble that you need to try!

Spreegold is still one of my most recommended places, mainly because it has so many different options that it is hard to be disappointed here. Love the pancakes, all the different egg dishes, the porridge, the cakes and the different paleo dishes on the menu. They have 3 different cafes, but the one at Stargarder is by far my favorite.
Spreegold, Stargarder Straße 82, 10437 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
Open daily 8-24h
