Benedict Berlin – A Breakfast Paradise

Benedict Berlin-2534

The idea of a place that offers breakfast around the clock already sounds pretty amazing considering I love breakfast and I tend to start the day quite late. But combine this with an unbelievable diverse and extensive selection of breakfast dishes that are typical in different countries, this makes it pretty much a paradise to me.

Benedict Berlin offers exactly that and has pretty much hit a nerve not only with me, but with a lot of people in Berlin. Only a few months old the place is already super popular and that even despite its unusual location in Wilmersdorf. But the commute to this place is absolutely worth it, because nowhere else will you get a variety and especially with such good quality here in Berlin.

The concept hails all the way from Israel where it is already a huge success with several stores. Benedict Berlin is their first branch in a different country and, oh my, are we lucky that they try different waters first here with us. Well, I guess the reputation of the Berliners to be crazy for new things reaches quite far.

When the days are still drab, but nevertheless long, there’s only one thing that helps against this state of listlessness in the morning: Damn good coffee. For its sake, it becomes worthwhile to wake up even a little earlier, just so one can truly enjoy this quality cup and slowly get your mind ready for the day while soaking it up. That’s why true coffee experts would never take a cup to go. However, even when things have to go quick in the morning, a sweet coffee cup in your hand already makes everything better. We put together the best coffee places in Berlin for you, and we assure you that in some cases it even pays off to travel through the entire city.

Awesome Breakfast Places in Neukölln

Ungeheuer-

Once upon a time in a borough in the southeastern part of one of the world’s most magical and mind-blowing capitals there was a constant hustle and bustle resulting not from cars or any other kind of pestering noise but from people heading somewhere driven by hope and creativity. This would be my personal definition of Neukölln. What a better neighborhood to enjoy the first meal of the day. Here is the latest edition of our breakfast guide. Make sure you let us know about your favorite places ;-)

A Sweet Tooth Guide to Berlin

I’ve always had a sweet tooth. Ever since I was a little kid hanging in my parents’ grocery shop, I’d covertly fill up my pockets with candy. Not much changed. I mean, luckily I started financing the addiction on my own and the only thing I may occasionally steal is the show, but, despite strong human competition, my love affair with confectionery is still at the top of my most toxic relationships list. Basically, when I first saw the phrase “death by chocolate”, I felt like that’s what my gravestone is going to read. If you’re like me, or want to really impress a boy or girl with a tendency for sweet self-indulgence (there are many of us around here!), take them to one of those places:

It goes without saying that breakfast is or at least should be the meal of the uttermost importance during the day. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the etymology of the word refers to a large amount of food, with which a person breaks his fast in the morning. Its paramount importance is more than obvious in Berlin with countless cafes have outdoing themselves daily by offering an impressive variety of delicacies, sweets, omelets, coffee etc. and even accepting reservations on their busiest days.
