I have to say, one of my favorite things about Germany is their ability to consistently produce the most amazing rice pudding.
Yes, I LOVE rice pudding! I love, love, love it. I don't care if its store bought or what....I'm gonna dig it.
So when I spied the homemade rice pudding at Goodies (topped with fresh strawberry rhubarb, squeeeeeeal!) I, of course, resisted at first. I said to myself, "C'mon Colleen, be an adult. Drink a coffee, don't be weird. Stick to the food plan."
Then I decided 'NO, I will not be an adult or drink a coffee or stick to the food plan, I will eat this rice pudding and I will love it."
And, I did. It was heaven. I also enjoyed a little bit of the citrus/quinoa/broccoli dish (saved the rest for a salad at home) and a berry smoothie. The smoothie was a bit runny for me (but then again, I will not allow bananas in my smoothies) and lukewarm...but, it is what it is. We snagged a nice spot to sit outside in the sun. On a Sunday!
The treats are fantastic, they have a nice cooler of pre-made items that are delicious, and will make fresh stuff in their little kitchen, too. They have a full range of coffee, juices, teas, etc. The staff is really friendly, they have free wifi, comfortable seating and an overall nice vibe.
A great spot, right off the M10 tram, and very close to the U1 stop at Warschauer Str.
Get the rice pudding. Divine.
As I suddenly craved to discover a new cafe, I decided to head here this afternoon, as I had some extra time and I didn't need to be in the office anymore. I was initially attracted with their smoothies, but since the weather wasn't too smoothie-friendly, I went for a creme brulee latte instead. I also went for a magic bar.
I paid 3,50 + 2,20 EUR for those items and took a seat. Later on, they delivered the latte, but the magic bar was missing. I said that I also ordered a magic bar. Maybe it magically disappeared, but the person behind the counter first told me I didn't pay for it. In the end, she gave in, as I told her how much I paid for things, without looking at the counter display.
Anyway, I am giving this 3 stars. If there weren't any confusion, then I would be willing to up it to 4. It has good potential, there is free wi-fi, but I guess an afternoon isn't a good time to set up shop and work there. There aren't many tables, the narrow long room can get a bit crowded, and there aren't power outlets either, at least I didn't see any. Perhaps the surge of people was the cause of the confusion I experienced.
So, I am willing to go back here (and give a higher rating), but perhaps when there aren't plenty of people around. That way they would be less busy, and they'd remember that I did pay for my magic bar.
Excellent quality food. Everything is organic and the people are nice. Based just on that it would get five stars, but the atmosphere is slightly sterile and impersonal. Other than that it's pure joy though.
Goodies has internet and even some places to plug your computer in - that's why I first stopped into this place.
But low and behold - they have some quite tasty brownies, cakes and cookies. Try the blaubeer scone with berries and orange peel - hearty and with a sweet glaze on top. Good place to grab a snack or treat. Atmosphere is friendly and they also speak English at the counter. There are vegetarian options that are decent - pastas and bagels with fresh ingredients. Better than most little cafes I've stopped into for coffee, but still lacking a full understanding of how to prepare a cappuccino. Still - not bad..
Went out from my new apartment, the first morning waking up there. It was holiday and all supermarkets and bakeries were closed.
Searched for vegan breakfast on yelp and discovered goodies, a friendly vegan biological espresso bar. Not only my breakfast was saved but I think I found my second home. Had a great soy cappuccino (why the hell order a cow's milk when the soy tastes just as good!?) and a delightful chocolate cranberry cake (also vegan). Since it was so nice and the wi fi signal was so good, I decided that the Skype job interview I had with London, I will do there. I found myself a cosy cornered sofa, and the interview went great.
Unfortunately I didn't manage to try EVERYTHING in three days! Their bagels and smoothies are amazing. So was the chinese roll and the salad I tried (all the other ones looked fantastic too). It's the kinda food I could eat every day and it's a shame that there is no place like this anywhere close to my home but at the same time it's probably saving me from bankruptcy.
Vegetarian/Vegan sort of heaven (I'm neither vegetarian nor vegan but can still appreciate it). Nice staff, good selection, a bit über-pricy for the hood (but nowadays, every other place in F'hain is too pricy for the kiez).
Amazing breakfast from 7 a.m. on. Bagels (veggie, vegan, chicken), ciabattas, Muesli, Oat Meal, Soups, cackes and , and and. Start your day here and be happy.
Great coffee with large cups! The baked goods and salads are also good. It's a little noisy and chaotic in the mornings.
I love Goodies.
I love their bagels, I love the fact that they have so much vegetarian and even vegan food/sandwiches/bagels to choose from. I love their AMAZING Hot chocolate and Gingerbread Latte in the winter and their wide variety of cold, fresh drinks in the summer. The staff is always super nice and I think I've brought all of my visitors here ever since I moved to Berlin. One thing that is really important to me though, which is actually depriving them of one star, is the fact that the wifi is not always working as I would hope for. They have free wifi, but most of the times I've been there, it hasn't been working properly. So if you don't mind the unreliablie internet: Goodies is perfect, although it could get a bit noisy sometimes because it's always crowded. Not the coziest, but definitely one of the tastiest (their coffe creations are FAR better than Starbucks). If you wanna work/studymight not the best place in town.
all all organic event in Friedrichshain, at reasonable prizes and with free W-Lan!
there are tables outside, but I prefer the inner lounge area at the back. There is even a child friendly corner, and dogs are also allowed.
A wide selection of bagels with delightful fillings (curry chicken, dried tomatoes, turkey with lettuce), sandwiches and müsli and JOghurt. They also make delicious smoothies and prepare good cofee -their chai is prepared out of powedered mixes, though!
AROMA also gives you a mileage card, after 10 coffees the 11th is free. Not that one would go there solely for the card, but if you are going to have coffee anyway, why not?
Definitely worth a visit -newspapers and magazines are also available for Cafe visitors.
This is an excellent place to meet a friend and get something quite creative and crazy in the world of coffee/ drinks/ salads/ deserts. It's located right on Warschauer, so you can take the m10, m13, U5 or walk from the u/sbahns.
It's reminiscent of coffee cafes for me back in the states. They have crazy concoctions for smoothies/coffees and more. Also the option for sandwiches and more is wonderful. You really get the feel for a coffee shop where people are in and out/ or lingering for long conversations about the The Third Reicht . . .
Since there is wi-fi, I recommend this place for people looking to sport the apple product and intellectual look. just kidding, this isn't St. Oberholz.
delicious and reasonably priced. 6.10 total for a bagel sandwich (salami, mozz, sun-dried tomato spread) and large cappuccino (served not with a pre-packaged biscuit, but with a homemade spoon brownie!). most of the goodies in the dessert case were under 2 euro. plenty of prepackaged quickies like salads and muesli yogurts in a refrigerated case, too.
friendly and english speaking staff. free internet. lots of pretty people to look at. manages to have a relaxing and clean feeling atmosphere despite the busy street it faces.
My favorite cafe in Berlin. Tasty little brownie bites with every tasty drink, and a cool lounge atmosphere. Comfy couch in the back. Hard to beat that.
A small cool cafe with a good range of organic food and drinks and a nice atmosphere. It's the only decent option in the area (Warschauerstr.), and therefore is always packed. The food, being organic, is quite expensive by Berlin standards and the portions are quite small. I would therefore recommend it for drinks and cakes. Go somewhere else for lunch.
Sehr kreative und leckere Sandwiches, Salate, und Süßigkeiten. Freundliche fröhliche Bedienung.
