Hope Superfood Deli
This deli offers fabulous vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. You can also order sweet and salty snacks, soups and, salads as well as lovely coffee, which you can also take-away by using the sustainable deposit cup RECUP.

Oberholz is more than a café with great coffee. It is almost the place of conception for the co-working concept where several startups like Soundcloud, Brands4Friends, and HelloFresh have taken their first steps here. If you've bought some magazines at “Do you read me!?“, this is where you could read them. They offer wonderful coffee, delicious snacks and free wifi to work. Of course, customers are free to take their coffee to go with them – St. Oberholz joined RECUP so you don’t have to feel guilty having some of their delicious coffee-to-go.

Rudimarie is located on the opposite side from the playground on Weichselplatz and next to the skatepark Lohmühlenbrücke in Neukölln. In summer they put up a couple of tables and chairs under the trees next to the playground. That way parents can easily keep an eye on their children whilst enjoying some coffee variations and fresh waffles. You can also order the basic but traditional Berlin “Stulle” on the menu which you can grab with a RECUP of coffee and head to the sandpit with the children.
Weichselstraße 34, 12045 Berlin (Neukölln), +49 25 78 54 93, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.rudimarie.de, Station: M171 Lohmühlenplatz, Mon–Fr 9:00–19:00, Sat, Sun 10:00–19:00
Fine & Bagel Café
Situated in the vibrant Friedrichshain neighbourhood, you can find peaceful breakfasts and coffee in this café. It is located in the bookshop Shakespeare and Son with a library hall and a large selection of English books. Here you can order your coffee-to-go with a reusable, refundable RECUP.
Warschauerstraße 74, 10243 Berlin (Friedrichshain), www.shakesbooks.de, Station: U5 Frankfurter Tor, daily 8:00–20:00
Their menu reads like a list of novels: A Spring in Paris, The Great Gatsby or Adieu Tristesse. Buchkantine has its own library so you can scavenge through the bookshelves whilst enjoying a coffee or some food. Here, the banks of the river Spree are only a stone’s throw away. As Buchkantine also co-ops with RECUP, you can easily take your coffee in their reusable deposit cup with you on a calm walk along the river.
Dortmunder Straße 1, 10555 Berlin (Moabit), +49 30 94 88 37 28, www.buchkantine.de, Station: S3, S5, S7, S9 Tiergarten, café: Mon–Sat 10:00–22:00, Sun 9:00–22:00, bookshop: Mon–Fr 10:00–18:30, Sat 10:00–17:00
