Probably Berlin is the best city to be a freelancer. The number of start-ups is reflected in the number of cafés, which are sometimes used as a headquarter, where a lot of freelancers are to be found.

The café is decorated with a simple decor in- and outside. The bread is freshly baked and each dish is fondly prepared.
