If you are looking for somewhere to blend in amongst the locals and channel that Berlin vibe, then like most of the young creatives you want to head to Kreuzberg. This area of East Berlin, once known for being the poorest district, is now one of the city’s hotspot for trendy cafe bars and places to eat. As you cross over the canal onto busy Kottbusser Damm, you turn down Graefrestrabe to find a small glass fronted cafe Kaffebar, marked only by the graphic KB on the window and the locals which have spilled out onto the street, brandishing coffee cups and pastries.
The interior is a concrete lovers dream, with this small but perfectly formed cafe donning walls of grey for a very urban and minimalist feel. The back room has stepped seating with repurposed wooden pallets for you to lounge on while getting your caffeine kick, while the front room is made up of a few tables and bar stools. I visited here with Fritha and we spotted the coolest dressed dude in his golden years, who then showed up on Buzzfeed!
You’ll find people working away on their laptops in the corner but why surf the net when you can just hang out? Kaffebar serves breakfast, lunch and cakes – which are baked fresh daily on the premises – I decided to try out one or two of their midmorning snacks available from the counter, trying to be healthy with my first choice I ordered an Apfelschorle juice and a raspberry, walnut and chia porridge, although this was a little mellow for my liking and I was much happier with my second choice, a sweet apple crumble compote which hit the spot perfectly at €2.80 a pop.
If you're heading to Berlin this Spring then this is certainly a nice spot to check out if you like the urban industrial vibe, the park nearby is super cute too.
