Berlin offers a plethora of wonderful places with amazing coffee, breakfast and brunch options. But especially now in the sunny months of the year what we are really craving for is enjoy all of this outside in the sun. And here it becomes tricky because not every cafe has a great outdoor area. Sometimes they are a little too cramped at the side of the sidewalk, totally in the shade or not very big. We’ve gone around to some of our favorite places to test their outdoor areas for optimal sunshine and present you here our pickings in our new sunny breakfast guide. Enjoy!
A relative newbie on the block, Großherz quickly conquered our heart with its clever breakfast options made entirely of local ingredients. This is breakfast you don’t have to worry about the carbon footprint for a change. Their version of an avocado toast is actually made with a paste of peas and beets!
Großherz, Metzer Str. 22, 10405 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
Open Tue-Sun 09:00h – 23:00h
ABC – Allan’s Breakfast Club
Allan’s Breakfast Club is hands down the most delicious breakfast of the neighborhood. The eggs benny, the french toast, the Acai bowl are made of dreams, really. I might be biased because I live really close by, but if I wouldn’t I would still venture here for my breakfast bowl in the sun on one of the most beautiful streets in Prenzlauer Berg.
ABC – Allan’s Breakfast Club, 13, Rykestraße, 10405 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg
Open Mon, Wed-Fri 09:30 – 15:00h, Sat-Sun 09:30h – 16:00h, in the summer season also Wed-Fri 18:00-00:00h
Located in a former cemetery chapel 21 Gramm really comes with a unique vibe that totally extends to its secluded and extensive outdoor area. It’s really one of the few places I know that has a completely isolated yard away from the streets. And their pancakes even make me wanna go all the way down to the far end of Neukölln from my little tower in Prenzlauer Berg.
21 Gramm, Hermannstraße 179, 12049 Berlin-Neukölln
Open Tue-Thu 10:00 – 22:00h, Fri-Sat 10:00 – 00:00h, Sun 10:00 – 20:00h
Mirage Bistrot is our charming option in Wedding. Even though we really love the charming interior of the light-flooded and plant-filled place sitting outside with a view of the big square is also quite something. We do enjoy their Croque Monsieur quite a bit!
Mirage, Reinickendorfer Str. 110, 13347 Berlin-Wedding
Open Tue-Wed 10:00 – 20:00h, Thu-Fri 10:00 – 22:00h, Sat 13:00 – 22:00h, Sun 11:00 – 20:00h
The 19grams cafe at Alex hidden behind the big Kaufland supermarket is our new go-to place if we are craving a really hearty and yummy type of breakfast. Their eggs benedict with pulled pork-knuckle is really delicious and I tend to order more coffees there than I should.
19grams, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 13, 10178 Berlin-Mitte
Open Mon-Fri 08:00 – 20:00h, Sat-Sun 09:00 – 20:00h
There are other locations of 19grams at Schlesische Str. 38 in Kreuzberg, Chausseestr. 36 in Mitte and Boxhagener Str. 74 in Friedrichshain.
Praise the cakes at The Visit. No, seriously, these cakes are so scrumptious. Especially the Mango Spinach one, even though it sounds weird, is amazing. But so are their breakfast dishes, for instance, their french toast or the green shakshuka. Yum!
The Visit, Adalbertstraße 9, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
Open Mon-Fri 08:30 – 18:00h, Sat-Sun 10:00 – 20:00h
There are additional locations of The Visit at Unter den Linden 28a in Mitte, Goltzstr. 39 in Schöneberg, and Müllerstr. 28 in Wedding.
Silo is an old classic that we’ve mentioned already in a bunch of our guides. But when it comes to a sunny breakfast in Friedrichshain, this one just had to be included in our guide as well. We especially recommend the poached eggs with bacon and avocado. The coffee is, of course, excellent as they have the local brand Fjord which I love and also use at home.
Silo, Gabriel-Max-Straße 4, 10245 Berlin-Friedrichshain
Open Mon-Fri 08:30 – 17:00h, Sat-Sun 09:30 – 18:00h
