Top 5 cafes in Neukölln
Best cinnamon buns in town!

Café Espera


This café is always packed. That could be because of the delicious cakes, the pretty dishes and its beautiful (very interesting) visitors? If you can't make it for breakfast, the lunch menu with its sandwiches is also very charming. I also highly recommend ordering the best cinnamon buns of the world and if you are a coffee lover you will find a fine coffee there too. Just the way you like it.

Café Babette


Hungry for lunch? This vegetarian-vegan pop-up cafe is taking over the former brewing halls of the Kindl brewery (now a contemporary art centre). They do tasty soups and sandwiches, wholesome bowls and serve the amazing vegan cakes!

Cafés with delicious cakes

Cafe Katies Blue Cat


Not only is the coffee prepared with care, the café opens super early at 8:30. But as I said, its not only the coffee. The baked goods like cookies, pies and crumpets are amazing. The specialty of the café is the ANZAC biscuits.

Nothaft Café at Sonnenallee

Geschwister Nothaft Cafe


They have the best coffee around S-Bahn Sonnenallee. Every day I walk in, I'm greeted with a smile from one of the amazing baristas. If you are hungry order the grilled sandwiches with goat cheese, salami, turkey or cheese and pesto. There are also homemade cakes, including vegan ones.
