This time we’ve teamed up with style blog extraordinaire ignant.de to explore the best of bakeries in Berlin. Sadly much of Germany’s bread baking tradition has been lost and most bakeries you’ll find in Berlin sell warmed up dough pieces that merely deserve to be called bread. Luckily, there have always been people working on keeping delicious bread without artificial additives or chemistry tricks a staple in German households. The past years have spurred a new interest in artisanal breads and some brave people took the chance and started new bread businesses. Here are five outstanding examples of German (and Austrian) bread craft in Berlin (in alphabetic order):

Thinking of the first edition of Stil in Berlin’s Warm Up just one week ago still makes me smile – and this video is bringing back the best memories:
Being open only Saturdays and located in the southern streets of Kreuzberg 61, visiting Simon&Me has to be more of a plan than one’s usual Mitte shopping stroll. But it’s definitely worth making your way over to this little concept store, where only things made in Germany are sold.
Exploring Kreuzberg lunch-wise proves to be a very interesting and joyful enterprise. Just last week we discovered the most lovely little Korean place just off Skalitzer Straße. More of a hole-in-the-wall place, this joint is the younger and smaller sister of Prenzlauer Berg’s Korean institution Core, which was just recently opened and also includes a little shop. Although one wonders how they manage all of that in a place that is merely 20sqm big. But they do.
November is an exciting month for me, not only did we have the tremendous success of Warm Up this past weekend, but also did the Stil in Berlin office move from Mitte to Kreuzberg. Which means there are countless new lunch options to explore. First is a recommendation I had on my list for much too long – Adana Grillhaus. One important reason why it took so long is that Adana is just really not for vegetarians, but meat-lovers will find a home here.
