Breakfast in Berlin: Betty’n Caty

To be perfectly honest, when I first passed by this recently opened café, I only thought “not another Prenzlauer Berg café…”. But this hasty judgement was obviously failing to realize Betty’n Caty’s offering is deliciously different from the rest. Read: banana porridge with blueberries for breakfast or quinoa salad with wild herbs, avocado and feta cheese for lunch. Intrigued? So was I!

I found myself one particularly sunny morning on the terrace ordering avocado, poached egg and chili on bread with a detox smoothie made of celeriac, beetroot, orange and ginger. Which were completely delicious, though the egg on bread portion was slightly on the small side for 7 Euros. Prices are higher in this part of town, I guess this is not only due to the ingredients but also to higher rents. And certainly due to the effort the owners put into the looks of the café – a dark wooden floor with white Parisian metro tiles meet a dark bar with a copper top – which makes this one of the best looking cafés in the area.

I was back a couple weeks later and also tried the toasts, loved the one with goats cheese and beetroot. Betty’n Caty (named after the owners) also has a variation of gluten-, and/or lactose free options as well as vegan dishes. And of course, like a real café, they have a plethora of sweet treats like homemade cakes, cookies and so on and so on… Try it!

    I have been visiting Berlin since 1992 and just got back from a short break in the city. I nearly always stay around Savignyplatz. I am so pleased to found your lovely website – beautifully written, photographed and curated! Congratulations.

    I’ve been visiting Betty’n Caty frequently in the last couple of months, and am growing ever fonder of it. It’s a true little gem. Breakfasts are great, well-made and tasty and there’s something for everyone on the menu. Their music selection is diverse, and not the same tired playlist you hear in cafés these days.
