Food in Berlin: Meierei

Meierei

Despite the ongoing myth Berlin would be some kind of a prototypical breakfast (or even worse, brunch) city, I am always having a hard time when having to choose a nice place to sit and have a dainty first meal of the day. You either get good food, but lousy coffee or the other way around, or both is great, but the place is tiny, so sitting there for hours munching huge amounts of savory and sweet food seems to be inappropriate.
Meierei is a safe bet for breakfast all the time, although they’re not allowed to use the garden anymore (since someone calling himself architect chose to remodel it into a not-used but over-styled concrete “garden”), they’ve got huge tables and banks outside to enjoy a variety of scrambled eggs with pumpkin seeds, Bircher Müsli or porridge, fresh strudel, Weisswurst and a very fine and strong coffee. The focus, you might have noticed, is the alpine kitchen, so dainty Gulasch and Rinderbrühe (beef broth)are also on their menu and praised beyond the borders of Prenzlauer Berg.

    A splendid place! The buttered bun slathered with Marillenkonfitüre always hits the spot — and hmm, isn’t it getting to be the season for Kaspressknödel?

    I loved this blog when it featured mostly Berlin street style, but I love it even more now that it features food and art and homes and culture.

    Scrambled eggs with pumpkin seeds sounds just perfect. I can’t wait to try breakfast (which I, too, am quite particular about) here the next time I’m in town.
