48 Hours in Berlin with Co-Owner Megan
If you would like a coffee with a view then head to one of the most unique Barn locations Café Kranzler. It has a 360-degree view of the shopping boulevard along with a balcony. The Barn are very well known for their exceptional coffee.
Co-owner Megan recently spent 48 hours in Berlin, visiting a few customers and hosted a fun latte art event. So who better then to guide you through some must stop places in the great city that is Berlin then her! psst it's very coffee heavy. Not that it's a bad thing, just thought a heads up might be appreciated.
Five Elephants Mitte store is a great pit stop, the terrazzo coffee bar alone is worth the stop, and make sure you grab a slice of their cheesecake – besides the coffee it’s also what they’re well known for. Town Mouse Coffee, a sweet kiwi owned local and the Barns original location are also in the area.
If you’re wanting something a little more than a pastry, then you have to head to Two Trick Pony – it’s probably one of the best brunches I’ve had. I know, big words from this Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington local. They don’t open until 10am but it’s worth getting there early if you would like to sit outside as it fills up fast. Other firm favorites in this 'brunch' category are; Albatross Bakery, Father Carpenter and definitely add Annelies to your brunch list, it's a-mazing. Oh and Sirene. Ok done.
If you like a spot of shopping while sipping then you must head to Voo Store, it's been created by the folk behind Toki in Amsterdam which basiclly means it's really good.
For dinner is Dashi Diner, a modern Asian diner with yet another beautiful and simple fit-out. It has a simple menu with a simple natural wine list too match + a couple classic cocktails. They don’t take reservations and they’re quite busy so be prepared to wait. But it’s worth the wait. Promise. Another yummy dinner spot (but also open for coffee and pastry) is Julius, this spot came highly recommended and doesn’t disappoint. Seasonal menu where the food is the star, plus natural wines (it’s actually hard to find a local spot without natural wines in Berlin!).
