    Super friendly staff, interesting magazines, healthy snacks, delicious cake and excellent coffee. Definitely the place to hang out in this otherwise rather touristy part of Berlin. Love to go here.

    Best coffee shop in this part of Kreuzberg – quite spacious and lots of books and magazines. In summer, sit in the backyard!

    Great coffee bar with coffee from Drop and Five Elephant. They also provide a great selection of international newspapers and magazines. Free WiFi.

    Good flat white, nice quiche. Good selection of arty mags. Uses 5 elephants beans. Staff speaks English. Minimal design interior. Nice place to stop and get away from the surrounding tourist traps :)

    Pleasant reprieve from busy Checkpoint Charlie. Excellent coffee, tasty sandwiches and baked goods, including the infamous Five Elephants cheesecake. Efficient, if somewhat reserved service.

    I like this place a lot even though the design interior and music aren't really my thing. Coffees are good and the staff makes you feel very welcome. Tasty bites and a nice terrace, too.

    Great coffee & sandwiches, communal table with sockets and fast wi-fi (rare thing in Berlin). Really great place to work in this boring and touristy district.

    Great little back yard sun trap that goes a little round the corner if it looks full!

    Great selection of magazines but this place and its staff have a bad attitude. The epitome of 'too cool for school'. Plus the coffee is super bitter. I couldn't finish mine.

    Great Great place. Very hipster. Best carrot cake I've tasted ever! If you ask for coffee they put an Americano, ask for a normal one. Good wifi. All newspapers!

    The goat's cheese salad. Trust me. The coffee is expensive but it's a great, the tastiest toast in Berlin. Great selection of art magazines too.

    A safe haven in one of the worst areas of Berlin. If you happen to stuck around Checkpoint Charlie - come here for great coffee, reliable wifi, power sockets and proper food.

    Kindergarten for creative types. Good place to work w/ free wifi & large table w/ sockets. Design, mags, books, photos; inspiring. Good music, solid filter coffee. Try goat cheese + beetroot sandwich.

    The location, the music & the vibe are fantastic! The coffee is good but I prefer the Espressonisten tbh. 😏 They have a healthy snack selection but €4,50 for a fairly small „Stulle“ does hurt. 🙈😅

    Fast and reliable wifi internet. Large table with power sockets. Great quiches. One annoyance is that they only accept Mastercard and not Visa... otherwise, one of the best cafes in Berlin.

    Although it's a busy place, it's quite big, so you can seat easily in 5-10min. The carrot cake is definitely the best thing. the downside is that the service is a bit slow, but justified.

    The cheesecake is delicious. A recipe passed down from the grandmother of one of the staff. The German cheese and dairy take it to a new level of delicious, light and tasty. Must try.

    Staff are friendly, coffee delicious and probably the cheapest flat white in the city centre! Ticks all round... Oh and hassle free wifi!

    Excellent coffee shop close to Checkpoint Charlie. They carry Five Elephant coffee, have a nice selection of magazines and provide space for working. More Soho than Mission. Great spot.

    A hidden pearl in the touristic area. Authentical coffe shop with friendly staff , casual atmosphere, good brews and nice little backyard for a couple of tables.

    In general, I am not a big fan of anything on Friedrichstr. and this café doesn't make much of a difference but I have to admit that their cakes are class! :) Hipster feeling on Friedrichstr... ;)

    The only place around checkpoint Charlie with good coffee. But quite slow and not the comfiest place of all. Lots of hipsters and tourists but also nice magazines. I like their Carrot Cake.

    Great coffee place, one of the best coffees in town. If it opened every day at 8:00am instead of 8:30am I'd be here every day.

    Grab your coffee, sit in the back and enjoy all the art magazines. Btw, you hear more English than German here.

    Very good coffee, tasty snacks, stylish venue, good for working, a bit too crowded and busy, especially with tourists, and Mitte prices

    2,50 Euro for a cup of coffee from a thermos is not cool, even if the beans are roasted by Five Elephant. And the Aeropress brew was more than a bit grassy. Slightly disappointed.
