Where Berlin - - Dining - Da Baffi

Café Aroma

Ital­ian. A long­stand­ing neigh­bor­hood fa­vorite, this Ital­ian res­tau­rant be­lieves in pair­ing high-qual­ity food with a re­laxed, homey at­mos­phere. The Sun­day brunch buf­fet, served from 11am, is a gen­er­ous mix of ir­re­sistible cold and warm Ital­ian dishes. €€. Mon–Fri D, Sat L&D, Sun B, L, D. Hochkirch­str. 8. T: 030.7825821.

Dou­ble Eye

Café. This tiny cof­fee shop reg­u­larly has a line snaking out the front door, and no won­der: the owner has won mul­ti­ple Euro­pean and world­wide barista cham­pi­onships. Some pas­tries are also on of­fer, but it’s the ex­cel­lent cof­fee that draws the crowds. €. Mon–Sat B&L. www.dou­ble­ Akazien­str. 22. T: 0179.4566960. U Eise­nacher Straße. D5


Ger­man. All dark wood and white table­cloths, the look at Renger-Patzsch is as sim­ple and el­e­gant as is its menu of re­fined Ger­man-Aus­trian cui­sine. Meat dishes are a spe­cialty, as are the Al­sa­tian Flammkuchen, bases of thin dough baked with top­ping com­bos like ap­ple and blood sausage. €€. Daily D. Wart­burgstr. 54. T: 030.7842059. U Eise­nacher Straße. C5

Ba­likci Ergün

Turk­ish. This quirky, hole-in-the-wall res­tau­rant, with the look and feel of a fish mar­ket, serves fresh seafood the tra­di­tional Turk­ish way.

S Belle­vue. D3

Café Ein­stein Stammhaus

Ger­man/Aus­trian. The 1878 villa hous­ing this Vi­en­nese-style cof­fee house has sur­vived a long and sto­ried his­tory. To­day, the es­tab­lish­ment is back to its for­mer grandeur, a lovely spot for a meal or to while away the af­ter­noon with a cof­fee and some­thing to read. €€.

Käfer Dach­garten-Res­tau­rant of the Ger­man Bun­destag

Ger­man. The Re­ich­stag is much more than a sight­see­ing des­ti­na­tion. Thanks to the culi­nary team be­hind Käfer, it’s a fine dining des­ti­na­tion too. Lo­cated on the roof of the Re­ich­stag build­ing, the res­tau­rant boasts splen­did views in ad­di­tion to the re­fined, mod­ern Ger­man cui­sine. Book­ing needed. Due to se­cu­rity pre­cau­tions, each guest must pro­vide of­fi­cial photo I.D. upon en­try. €€€. Daily B, L, D. www.feinkost-kae­ Carl-SchurzS­traße 49A. T: 030 22629900. U Bun­destag, S Bran­den­burger Tor. D3/E3. Ital­ian. The Wed­ding district is not known for its culi­nary virtues, but Da Baffi is the fore­bearer of a bur­geon­ing res­tau­rant scene. This res­tau­rant’s chang­ing menu of im­pec­ca­ble Ital­ian dishes at­tracts din­ers from across the city. €€. Daily L&D. Nazarethkirch­str. 41. 0176.6926545. U Leopold­platz. D1


Ger­man/Euro­pean. This trendy spot dubs it­self a gas­tropub, aim­ing to be a fun evening spot for friends to meet, eat, and hang out. It’s al­ready well on its way to be­com­ing a hip des­ti­na­tion, thanks in part to the stel­lar rep­u­ta­tion of its burger, topped with ba­con, arugula, and ched­dar. €. Tue– Fri L&D, Sat–Sun D. www.das­ Brun­nen­str. 73. T: 0178.3965490. U Voltas­traße. E1

Brauhaus at Krongut Born­st­edt

Ger­man. Sit­u­ated on the Born­st­edt Crown Es­tate be­long­ing to the en­sem­ble of palaces and gar­dens of Sanssouci Park, this rus­tic res­tau­rant of­fers a sea­son­ally chang­ing menu with Aus­trian in­flu­ences. Daily L&D. Ribbeck­str. 6 -7. T: 03315506548. Pots­dam Haupt­bahn­hof. Off Map
