Continuing our saga on wonderful places to have breakfast in Berlin, it is Prenzlauer Berg’s turn to lure you into making a whole date out of the first meal of the day. Wherever you are, lean back on your chair, try to isolate any noises or responsibilities waiting for you and indulge in taking a look at this week’s choices.
You will never have the feeling here that you have tried everything, since Betty’n Caty have a week menu, that constantly changes. When I first tried their bread & butter pudding, I felt like the whole universe was giving me a great big hug. We recommend the avocado bread with poached egg (cover photo) or the porridge with apples and cinnamon.
Location: Knaackstraße 8, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg.

No Fire No Glory
I remember sitting on the terrace of No Fire No Glory during a relaxing, sunny summer afternoon reading a book and escaping from the world around me. While that might not be possible for the next couple of months – at the moment I am writing this, the temperature is just above zero -, this place will make you forget the weather thanks to its exceptional coffee and their addictive sweet delicacies. On the weekends they also offer amazing warm breakfast options until appr. 14h.
Location: Rykestraße 45, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg.

ABC Allan’s Breakfast Club & Wine Bar
Here is how I would imagine the ideal visit at Allan’s: I would force myself to wake up a Sunday morning around midday and rush to this place to treat myself like a king. After a lush breakfast, I would start tasting their wines until they kindly request me to leave, since it would be way past the closing time. The specialty of the house are variations of Eggs Benedict with ham, salmon or avocado.
Location: Rykestraße 13, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg.

This is where you will not stop eating until you reach the point where you hate yourself and your stomach and jaws start to ache. They say “never judge a book by its cover”. Well, in this case you should…

Oak & Ice
For all of you who consider ice cream just a summer fling, this place will convince you that it can turn into an all year lover. If you are not an ice-cream fan, there is no chance you will not find something to love here, since everything is made out of strictly natural ingredients and tastes like heaven -especially the lavender cheesecake. In their cute cafe you will get lovely healthy breakfast options such as Acai and chia bowls, smoothies, as well as classics such as pastries and sandwiches.
Location: Schönhauser Allee 52, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg.
