The heat hit Berlin a couple of days ago, and if you’re looking for a sweet treat with enough sugar and caffeine to get you through the rest of the hot day, try the Affogato, an espresso poured over one (or two) delicious scoops of vanilla ice cream, at Cuore di Vetro, Max-Beer-Straße 33 in Mitte. Their pistachio ice cream is also pretty good.
To call this place a Kantine (canteen) is of course a total understatement, not only because it belongs to the David Chipperfield Architect’s office and is thus impeccably designed, but also because the offered dishes only revoke memories of bland canteen food while actually being delicious. After closing down their first location, the team opened a new restaurant called Das Lokal (a personal favorite of mine thanks to its beautiful atmosphere and down-to-earth local and seasonal food) a couple of years ago. Now the entirely new build Chipperfield Berlin offices are finished and so is the remise in its backyard, the new home of Kantine.

Get yourself ready for some mouth-watering photos:
