Bold in Berlin: Bread & Butter by Zalando

Sponsored by Zalando

While we’re currently deep into summery sleepiness and holiday talk, there’s nothing like the sweet anticipation of September, when the city reawakens with loads of events and parties. And this year we’re in for a treat:: the second instalment of the now better than ever public Bread & Butter by Zalando is coming up, this time the Festival of Style and Culture has a banging motto: BOLD. And while fashion is still the main focus – with brands like Viktor&Rolf, Topshop, Jil Sander Navy, Nike, and more –, music  – Bilderbuch, Hannah Faith, Yung Hurn and Quay Dash – and FOOD will make things even more exciting. A best-of street food vendors from Berlin, Germany, and Europe will feed us burgers and baos, coffee and ice cream, and loads more during the three day festival from Sept 1st to 3rd. Check the full program here, and don’t forget to order your tickets now! And for those who can’t attend: All fashion shows, talks, and selected music highlights are live streamed on B&&B’s channels.
Btw, you can also read my guide to food at B&&B on their website.

French Toast at Brammibal's Café in Berlin Neukölln

Brunch in Neukölln: Brammibal’s

It’s a well known fact that Brammibal’s is not only making the best vegan donuts in town, but the best donuts in general. But did you know that besides baking a plethora of ring-shaped delicacies every day, you can also enjoy an equally lavish while still completely vegan brunch at their place by the canal in Neukölln?

Fries at Tropez inside of Humboldthain

Fries and Art in Wedding: Tropez

Fries and public pools are tightly connected in Berlin – when you’re spending a day at one of the city’s pools, it’s inevitable to eat fries at one point during the day. It’s a Berlin summer ritual. And one that one of my closest friends, Nele Heinevetter, has been following meticulously for years, until she had the opportunity to become the master of the ritual herself and take over the Imbiss at the pool inside of Humboldthain park, where she now serves fries with a side of contemporary art.

This Sunday: It’s an Ice Cream Party!

As a passionate proponent of everything sweet and frozen, I couldn’t only publish a guide to the bestest ice cream places in the city, but had to join forces with the all female powerhouse that is Sweethearts in Neukölln to throw the daintiest ice cream event of the season: it’s an Ice Cream Party! It’s happening this Sunday from 14:00 in the luscious garden of lovely Sweethearts, and we’ll assemble the finest artists in the field of frozen delights to bring you ice cream in all its delicious varieties: from scoop to sandwich to popsicle. Read on to get your hands on the limited ice cream feast tickets, that will give you all the pleasures at an unbeatable price.

Brunch in Mitte: Commonground

So, as you know, I really like Silo’s breakfast fare. But there’s a major downside: it’s in Friedrichshain. Yeah, I get it, #notallfriedrichshain. But each time I give the neighborhood a shot I end up unconvinced and feeling icky. However, Silo ventured out into Mitte, and opened a second location inside of the Circus Hotel at Rosenthaler Platz! With an all-day breakfast menu! Served in a pretty and quiet garden where you can escape the Mitte rush! And enjoy your brioche french toast with berry mascarpone in peace.
