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.

Coffee & Cake in Mitte: Five Elephant

As announced in the “The New Food Spots We Have To Try” article, Five Elephant has ventured from Kreuzberg and into the heart of Mitte, opening a small but very pretty new shop on Alte Schönhauser Straße, just next to high scale fashion and beauty stores. They’re offering their well known and trusted coffee drinks, as well as cakes in newer, probably more Mitte-appropriate sizes. A great addition to the thriving Berlin coffee scene.

Shop in Berlin: Bikini Berlin

Sponsored by Bikini Berlin

Berlin is a grand city, but rarely looks like one, admittedly. While I mostly love its small town appeal, sometimes one needs to actually see and feel the attraction of a metropolis. I’m thinking about a backdrop of actually high buildings, a mix of shops and cafés and maybe the view on a zoo, preferably the “monkey hill”. Wait what? Yep, entirely possible at Bikini Berlin.

Coffee, Bonanza, Berlin's best coffee

Berlin’s Best: Coffee Guide 2016

The very first version of this guide on Berlin’s best coffee, published four years ago, featured nine places, the updated version from two years ago had fifteen. And this one? Twentynine! When everyone thought the Berlin coffee scene had reached its climax and was saturated, coffee enthusiasts actually took another leap and made the scene here bigger, better and especially more beautiful. And while it seems like the whole city is covered in speciality coffee places, a look on the map (choose coffee from the drop-down menu on the left) makes it very clear how much spaces are still left untouched by syphons, speciality roasts and the never-ending discussion whether one should or shouldn’t use sugar.
In this guide, I collected all coffee places I enjoy in Berlin, from the chic caffeine chapels to the homey neighborhood joints, from the ones who’ve been here before you even thought about moving to Berlin, to those who literally just opened. Just to make sure you’ll get a good coffee wherever you are.
