You know the tiny coffee shop at Oderberger Straße, that was one of the shops starting third-wave-coffee in Berlin, right? Even if you don’t, you probably know the name Bonanza Coffee, because it stands for finest roasts that are used world-wide and in many cafés and restaurants throughout the city, like Borchardt and Cecconi? And maybe you’ve ordered some yourself through their online shop? Because sometimes, that little shop is just a bit too crammed. And also quite far off, if you don’t live in the northern districts. Here’s a solution: their gorgeous new café in a backyard off Adalbertstraße in Kreuzberg.

The news about the situation of refugees in Berlin are still coming in, but they’ve slowed down. The situation has been calming down for several months now, since less and less refugees arrive in Berlin. Not because there are none, but because Europe closed its borders. Here’s a summary of what’s been happening in the last weeks and how you can help.
Plenty of words have been written about Thai Park (also on this blog). That otherwise unremarkable park south west of Berlin’s center turns into a busy Thai market every weekend with a plethora of Thai families cooking and selling specialities on the spot. It’s been around for more than a decade, growing in size and popularity every summer, reaching an extent that some might already call problematic, with hundreds of eaters crowding the lawn, and many more vendors joining the pathways. However, it’s still delicious and one of the prime spots in Berlin to enjoy Thai food, when done right.
Last week, I had the most amazing creamy and fresh Frischkäse I ever had in Berlin, I ate it directly out of the glass, I spread it on sliced Kohlrabi, I had it with currant jam on fresh toast, I finished the whole jar in less than 3 days. Where did I get that wondrous dairy product, you ask? From Erdhof Seewalde, a farm about 90km north of Berlin, that delivers their produce to many of Berlin’s Michelin star adorned restaurants, but isn’t big enough to be present at Berlin’s farmers’ markets. Did I drive there just for a glass of fresh cheese? It would’ve been worth it, but I didn’t, it was way easier: I got it at Food Assembly.
