How does this sound for your Saturday breakfast: poached egg, bacon, haricot beans with leek, kale and herbs, haloumi-parsnip fritters, Persian saffron shakshuka with black beans, marinated chickpeas, saffron hollandaise, charmoula marinated beets? Because, yes! It’s that time of the year again! Das Brunch is back with their lavish morning food feast, this time in Neukölln, with a better menu than ever, plus all of it is benefiting the host, Sharehaus Refugio! And an extra special super goodie courtesy of yours truly.

Just four more sleeps and we can all get together again this Saturday from 10:00 for the extended joy that is Das Brunch, your favorite seasonal breakfast happening by Sophie and Xenia von Oswald. This time, the sisters chose the beautiful hall of Refugio Share House to serve their delicious brunch creations inspired by Middle Eastern and Australian breakfast culture. As always, there are three options: you can go for the organic poached egg served with bacon, haricot beans with leek, kale and herbs, saffron hollandaise, charmoula marinated beets, and a winter salad with crispy chard and lemon-pomegranate vinaigrette; or go veggie with the egg and haloumi-parsnip fritters, crushed harissa carrots, marinated chickpeas, greek yoghurt with oven roasted garlic, as well as the salad; or do it vegan with a Persian saffron shakshuka (!) with black beans, crispy sweet potato, green tahini, charmoula marinated beets, avocado, and the salad. By the way, you can add avocado, bacon, or sausage to all of them. I already know what I’m going to have.

For this time, Das Brunch chose the amazing Sharehaus Refugio project as a host. It’s an apartment building including café and rooftop garden in Neukölln, where over 60 people who have lost their homes or were forced to leave, live, learn, and work together. Not only will all profits of Das Brunch go directly to the Refugio, we also prepared a special lottery with amazing prizes by Berlin based companies to collect even more donations!

Joining the lottery is super easy, you can buy tickets at the Das Brunch event, all prizes will be given away during the lottery at 13:00, which you’ll need to attend to claim your prize. If a ticket holder is not present when their number is called, other numbers are drawn until we find a ticket holder who’s present.

And here’s our list of prizes: two handcrafted pillows by Berberlin, a lunch for four at Big Stuff Smoked BBQ, a plant hanger by California Dreaming, a blanket by Folk Days, a 75,- gift card for The Good Store, a porcelain coffee filter by KPM Berlin, a brunch for four at Little Joy @ Bitte, a 150,- gift card for Lunettes Selection, a house plant by Mary Lennox, a 50,- gift card for RSVP, a two hour interior design consulting for your home or office by Salty Interiors, and, obviously, a brunch for four at the next Das Brunch!

And here’s more – coffee, cakes & sweets will be served by Refugio CaféLe Goulot will take care of your natural wine needs, and there’ll be a Pimm’s Bar, and Ketel One is bringing all the Bloody Marys.
