When we headed to Berlin, I did some location-scouting beforehand. One of the addresses that showed up was Kaffeemitte, located in, well, Mitte. However, I forgot to write down the address in my city Moleskine…
Surprisingly, Kaffeemitte was located just down the street from our hotel, The Weinmeister. I’m not a big fan of all the sandwiches that taste the same everywhere, but this place was a nice change from all that. I had one of the best lunches here, although it wasn’t that cheap.
I’ve heard they serve delicious dishes and breakfast as well, but unfortunately we didn’t go back there, because we either weren’t in the area or had plans to explore other places.
The fun thing here is that it’s frequented by Berliners, so it’s your ideal spot to do some people-watching. I really loved our location in Mitte and all the great lunch places, such as Kaffeemitte, definitely contribute to that.
I’m not quite sure yet whether the title of this post suits me or not. Berlin was different from all the other cities I’ve visited so far. I don’t know if it has to do anything with its history, but it did feel different. The photos here give you an impression of how we spent five days in the city. Mostly visiting landmarks or museums and walking around the many boroughs. I had a list of lunch/dinner spots prepared in my Berlin Moleskine of which you’ll be reading separate blog posts in the next couple of weeks. Believe me, we had some excellent food experiences while in Berlin.
Despite being ridiculously tempted to visit one of our previous holiday destinations, we decided to head to an all-new one over the summer. I keep a list of places I want to visit (yeah, I’m list-crazy) and after some thinking we decided on a city trip to Berlin. We just moved into our new home, so we definitely wanted to spend part of our vacation at home. The long-stay destinations were out of the question and since both the hubby and I haven’t visited Berlin yet, we quickly made a decision.
I booked a room at The Weinmeister (thank you, Petite Passport, for being my online travel guide) and we’re flying Brussels Airlines (for the first time as well!). Now I still have to figure out what to visit, where to shop and more importantly where to eat. So, if you happen to have any suggestions, I’ll gladly take note of them in my very fancy Moleskine (because I’m just old-fashioned like that, too).
