- 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.
• Fasanenstrasse 23, +49 30 882 5414, literaturhaus-berlin.de. Mon-Sun 9.30am-1am (breakfast served until 2pm)
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.
