My Top Three Cafés in Berlin

  1. Housed in a stately prewar building and featuring a pristine garden, Cafe Wintergarten im Literaturhaus, in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin, is a real treat. The building also contains a bookstore on the ground floor, with naturally, many literary works.

2. Cafe Einstein, in Schöneberg, also has a garden where you can sit outside in the warmer months. This Viennese-style cafe, housed in a bourgeois villa unscathed by the war, has an interesting, and tragic, Nazi-era history

3. Cafe Berio,  in Schöneberg, is more like a French cafe than the other two mentioned here in that you can sit outside on the sidewalk and people-watch. Often showcasing works of local artists, it is open 24 hours.
