Vegan in Berlin: Let it Be

I am so very happy about the growing vegan scene in Berlin – we already got many options to chose from, but can there ever be enough?
Yesterday I cycled down Weserstraße, that incredibly long stretch in Neukölln, where new cafés, shops and restaurants seem to open every week, to reach one of the recently opened contenders: Let it Be. The small eatery serves vegan crêpe and gluten-free galette with sweet or savory fillings, burgers and sweet treats to health-conscious people coming here from all over the city.

Berlin’s Best: Ice Cream Guide

We live in glorious ice cream times in Berlin, with new and creative parlors popping up all over the city while the troupers still excel in their craft. From Wilmersdorf to Neukölln and back, from vegan to Italian to sugar-crusted, it’s a paradise for everyone with a sweet and cold tooth. In order to supply you with the best frozen experience, we’ve compiled a list of Berlin’s best ice cream (from A to Z)! All strictly subjective, of course!

Links in Berlin: Summer’s here

With temperatures way above the 30s, the last week was spent outside or at one of the many lakes around Berlin as often as possible. Nevertheless, we found the time to collect the latest #linksinberlin, with – of course – many more ideas to spend these beautiful days in Berlin.
And we loved all your contributions to the #linksinberlin hashtag on instagram – lieber_honig’s pretty sunset over gritty tracks happened to depict our current Berlin-mood the best. Thanks for the picture and keep them coming!

Breakfast in Berlin: Mary’s

I don’t even know if this is a big announcement or not, but I do know that only few things are able to make me as nervous as this new idea. Spending my days discovering, watching, testing and writing about all the foodie-endeavours happening in Berlin right now, lead me closer to this idea of trying out my own food-idea. The best place to try it is the upcoming Breakfast Market and so it will be: Mary’s will premiere this Sunday at Markthalle 9 and we will probably go down in a green smoothie chaos… but at least we’ll have fun!

Food in Berlin: The Breakfast Market

I’ve said it before and I’ll says it again – against all prevailing expectations – Berlin doesn’t have a great breakfast-scene. Besides the usual croissant with coffee, there’s basically only the mixed plate filled with more or less unremarkable cheese, fruits and spreads. I am exaggerating, obviously, but only because the end of breakfast-tediousness is near! The guys of Markthalle 9 came up with a fabulous new idea: The Breakfast Market. So fabulous indeed, that without any promotion (besides some printed flyers), the event already attracted 2,800 morning-eaters to click “attend” on Facebook.
Lucky me, I got a very early preview on what the market has to offer in terms of early-day-dishes and I can already tell you it will be a feast. You better go easy on that Saturday-night-dinner because it will be packed with delicious options from hearty pork belly to light wheat grass. But take a look for yourself:
