Some days ago two of my friends from Copenhagen came to Berlin, wanting to spend their easter holiday with good food and good company in Berlin.
Brunch at Datscha. Great brunch, great place. Datscha is a Russian restaurant and Datscha means country house. “This is good” said Frederik, when he ate his food while topping it off with a big smile and a very satisfied facial expression.
Shoe shopping in shoe heaven Overkill in Kreuzberg. Lin was overwhelmed by the extreme selection and Frederik found himself a cool pair of sneakers.
The weather has been treating us more than bad the past days, so we found shelter in one of my favorite places in Berlin – Freischwimmer, where we could enjoy the rain from the inside which is a much better solution.
Breakfast day two at Ankerklause. “This place is so hideous but yet amazing” we all agreed. Ankerklause has so many choices for breakfast that it took us a long time to decide what we felt like eating. We ended up drinking coffee out of a bowl, eating salmon and creme cheese bagels, eggs, and croissants. It was still raining.
We made our way down Oranienstraße and went shopping – only looking, no buying though – in Berlin’s answer to Paris’ Colette concept store – Voo Store. I love that place.
We walked all the way from Oranienstraße to Münzstraße and decided it was on high time for a coffee break after we made it through the rain. We went to Father Carpenter Coffee Brewers, a newly opened beautiful place in Mitte, where I am definitely going back soon to try their breakfast menu.
After spending some time shopping we needed some fast energy in form of a zimtsnecke from Zeit Für Brot. The best little (or not so little actually) cinnamon bun in town.
Home and rest, have fun, and listen to good music while cooking our delicious home cooked dinner with groceries from the Turkish market at the Maybachufer. It doesn’t get better than this. I was more than happy that my oven was being used. Maybe for the first time in 2015.
A little desert. My lodgers brought me chocolate easter eggs from Summerbird. “They are really good, like really really good” I mumbled while my mouth was filled with chocolate.
