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.
House of Small Wonders, Johannisstr. 20, 10117 Berlin-Mitte
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).

Le Bon at Gräfekiez on Schönleinstraße corner of Boppstraße is an option for the more demanding palate. On their menu you will find all the trendy goodies such as shakshuka, eggs benedict, and porridge with nuts and fruits. We liked the variety on the menu and the relaxed atmosphere of the place.
Le Bon, Boppstrasse 1, 10967 Berlin-Kreuzberg
Open daily, 9:30- 17:00

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
Open Mon-Fri 8:30-19h, Sat 9:30-19h, Sun 10-19h

Benedict Berlin is pretty much what could be described a breakfast heaven focusing only on breakfast dishes, but offering them all day long. 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.
Benedict Berlin, Uhlandstraße 49, 10719 Berlin-Charlottenburg
Open daily 7-23h

Betty ‘n Caty
This charming cafe in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg will seduce you with their yummy avocado sandwiches and the delicious porridge variations. They also have an amazing strawberry-rhubarb-crumble that you need to try!
Betty’n Caty, Knaackstr. 26, 10405 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
Open Mon-Fri 8-23h, Sat 9-23h, Sun 9-19h

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
