Café Einstein

Starting this guide with a classic Berlin institution feels quite appropriate – this impressing Kaffeehaus close to Tiergarten serves a choice of German breakfast on an elegant étagère with possible add-ons of scrambled eggs. Also great for summer breakfasts in their glorious garden. More here.

Distrikt Coffee

It feels very much as if this one turned around Mitte’s breakfast scene when it opened almost a year ago – with their menu featuring fluffy pancakes, acai bowls, avocado on toast, strong coffee and loads more. Especially since you can enjoy these treat everyday from 8.30 am! More here.

Hotel am Steinplatz

When looking for an indulgent breakfast on a weekday, hotels can be a relevant choice. Not many feature an à la carte menu, though. Hotel am Steinplatz in Tiergarten does with a very interesting list of German breakfast dishes like poached eggs with pickled cucumber salad, roasted sourdough bread and ham from Berlin; or with roasted tomatoes, hollandaise, spinach and toasted muffins (pictured above). If you got a sweeter tooth try their buttermilk Plinsen (pancakes) with honey from Berlin and butter, or Armer Ritter (the German French toast) with sirup made from sugar beets – pure deliciousness. Mon–Fri 06.30–10.30, Sat & Sun 06.30–11:00

House of Small Wonder

This house truly is full of wonders, not only because you will love the interior, that is done with lots of consideration without looking overly styled. The menu offers breakfast food from Europe with a Japanese twist – like the croissant french toasts in the picture above, croque madame, and eggs benedict with wasabi hollandaise (only on weekends).

This instagram-ready place on the other end of Pannierstraße is a breakfast favorite in its Kiez with its huge plates full of poached eggs, spinach and bread; black beans with fried eggs, salsa and feta; scrambled eggs; huevos rancheros; or sweet treats like a French toast with loads of fruits and greek yoghurt. Take your time or bring many friends to get the most out of this indulgent morning meal. More here.

If this one wasn’t in Friedrichshain, I’d be here everyday (sorry Friedrichshain…). Silo is constantly working on their morning routine, offering nourishing and delicious dishes like pancake in a pan with poached egg, bacon and maple syrup, shakshouka, porridge, avocado on Sironi toast, stunning French toast. Available everyday!!

The Store Kitchen

If this one wasn’t in Mitte, I’d be here everyday (sorry). I’ve said that about their lunch, and I repeat it for their breakfast: it is divine. (And totally up my personal alley). Pictured here is a sourdough waffle with kale, porcini, a poached egg and house made hot sauce (so good), in the back are sourdough pancakes with poached quince. The menu also offers bowls filled with mango, papaya, coconut kefir, ume and chia; or sprouted grain porridge with almond milk; or brown rice with lemongrass and fermented spring onions; or nduja with baked habricots and labneh. I’m drooling just typing these words.

Geist im Glas

Usually a bar, this place in the midst of Kreuzkölln will serve you the perfect hangover cure on weekends – their brunch features three dishes plus many morning-cocktails. The fluffy pancakes with dulce de leche and bourbon infused maple sirup were my favorite, but I wouldn’t not wanna have the biscuits with gravy before – more here. Saturdays & Sundays 12:00–16:00

Industry Standard

One of the finest new food places now also engages in brunch food – and it is obviously as good as the rest of it, read: Scotch egg muffins (an egg in an shell made of minced meat, then fried, then put in-between English muffins), chilaquiles with poached egg, fried chicken and pancakes and doughnuts filled with lemon custard or chocolates. Pictured above is a dish from their dinner menu, beet root with liquorice, they made for me because I asked for a vegetarian alternative (and it is glorious). However, the chilaquiles can be served vegetarian, so don’t worry meat-free friends. Also on the menu: oysters, nesquick and bloody mary. Pretty much all you need. Saturday & Sunday 10:00–15:00.

3 Minutes sur Mer

This one’s been a favorite of mine and was pretty much the only recommendable breakfast in Mitte for years. While this has changed, the French bistro is still a great choice for a weekend brunch with croque madame and monsieur, and poached eggs. More here.

Breakfast Market

An almost institution is this market of breakfast food – it’s like Street Food Thursday but only with morning meals like Future Breakfast’s Eggs Benedict Sandwich or Big Stuff Smoked BBQ’s breakfast sandwich, alongside wheat grass shots, sweet panzerotto, Indian sandwiches, Fischbrötchen and much, much more. And there’s a really good bar. Your breakfast paradise, every third Sunday of the month, next one is on October 18th from 10am!

Das Brunch

My cravings for more innovative brunch plates are answered by this event, aptly named Das Brunch, which pops up every couple of weeks at several pretty places all around the city, servings us delicious and innovative brunch plates. Like a couple days ago at their take-over of CFL Canteen, where they served The Phoenix, a combination of poached organic eggs, with manouri cheese, chickpeas in yellow pepper sauce, baba ganoush, a sweet potato rösti and the broccolini plus acovado. It’s a smashing combo, with intense flavors and a complex profile, thanks to the many different components, that complement each other since they’re all somewhat inspired by Persian recipes. There was also Bloody Mary, an oyster and champagne bar, as well as a nice choice of sweet baked goods, from brownies to muffins and cheesecake. The next Das Brunch is not yet confirmed, but I will definitely keep you updated on that. Until then, follow their Facebook Page!


Buns Brunch

Coming to you from the much beloved team of Bunsmobile, this brunch is only happening this fall on Sundays at Neukölln’s new and cute French place L’eustache. With a simple yet striking menu of poached eggs, brunch plates with black pudding, thick bacon and some graved salmon, this brunch excels at sweets – their French toast topped with salted caramel ice cream by Jones Ice Cream is to. die. for. Also: they’re serving plenty of natural wine with it. It really is only going on until Nov 8th 2015, so be quick. (And make it so popular, they turn it into a regular affair, thanks.) Sunday, 11.30–17:00
