My five favourite places to eat in Berlin {and other tips}

On Friday I shall be on my way to Berlin for the Hive Conference. I lived in Berlin for about 18 months and today I thought I would share five of my favourite places to eat (plus some other local tips) for fellower Hivers or in case you find yourself in the city this summer. five places in berlin Yumcha Heroes, Mitte/Prenzlauer Berg – some of the best Chinese dumplings ever (IMO). Address: Weinbergsweg 8, 10119 Berlin. Also in this area: Weinbergsweg is also an interesting shopping street, my favourite shop on this street is Schoene Schreibwaren, which sells beautiful leather purses/wallets, pencil cases and glasses cases. At the top of the hill is Glücklich am Park (Kastanienallee 54), a lovely little cafe with a shop selling beautiful and individual clothes and accessories upstairs. The pretty chairs outside are Instagram gold.

Nola’s am Weinberg, Mitte/Prenzlauer Berg – quirky Swiss themed restaurant with a lovely terrace and delicious seasonal menu. If the risotto is on, have it! Address: Veteranenstraße 9, 10119 Berlin. It is situated in a lovely public park, Volkspark am Weinbergsweg, perfect for relaxing in the Berlin spring sunshine.

Da Piadina, Mitte – little family run Italian cafe serving amazing homemade piadina or flat breads. Address: Auguststrasse 49a, 10119 Berlin. Also in this area: Close by is a fantastic magazine and bookshop, Do you read me?, which is well worth a visit. The Barn (Auguststraße 58) is a well hyped coffee house you should at least try out whilst browsing in the galleries along this street.

La Käserie, Prenzlauer Berg – fantastic little cheese shop and cafe. Try the cheese and charcuterie plate, you won’t regret it. Address: Lychener Strasse 6, 10437 Berlin

Cha Cha, Mitte – a Thai restaurant  with a concept a bit like Wagamamas but better. Address: Friedrichstrasse 63, 10117 Berlin

My reviews from 2012/13 here: Yumcha Heroes, Nola’s, Da PiadinaLa Käserie, Cha Cha.


    • You are right there are so many places to eat in Berlin, some great and some less so. It will be strange to be back but I am not staying in my old neighbourhood so will be like visiting a new city perhaps. There has been a lot of change since I moved away so will be interesting to see how I find it.

  1. I was in Berlin in February, and I had dinner at Dudu, near Rosenthaler Platz. Do you know this place? They do Asian fusion, and the food is nothing short of amazing! They also have great cocktails.
