Voted by BertaBerlin here are the top 5 places to drink your coffee in Neukölln.
This café is always packed. That could be because of the good cheese, the pretty dishes and its beautiful (very interesting) visitors? For breakfast they serve plates, pancakes (which I highly recommend) or avocado and poached eggs. The owners, Sarah and Frizzi, are in the kitchen themselves (it's an open kitchen so you can see) and prepare everything with love. If you can't make it for breakfast, the lunch menu is also very charming. And coffee and sweet treats are available all day. Just the way you like it.
Böhmische Straße 13, 12055 Berlin (Neukölln), www.hallmann-klee.de, Wed–Sat from 9:30, Sun 9:30–18:00
Café Espera has the best cinnamon buns of the world and if you are a coffee lover you will find a fine coffee there too.
Sonnenallee 35, 12045 Berlin (Neukölln), Station: U7, U8 Hermannplatz, Mon–Fr 7:00–19:00, Sat–Sun 9:00–19:00
Here I enjoyed one of the best breakfast in the world. You can choose from pancakes, eggs florentine and more. If you are in the area its definitely worth a visit.
Besides the Christmas market at Richardplatz, I found another reason for you to visit this beautiful "kiez". The café Paulinski Palm from Paul and Max opened last year and is a mix of café, restaurant, wine bar and corner pub, a bit of everything, but above all cosy. I've enjoyed a delicious breakfast here and had a nice walk in the Comenius Garden afterwards.
Richardstraße 76, 12043 Berlin (Neukölln), www.paulinskipalme.de, Wed–Sun 10:00–0:00
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.
Friedelstraße 31, 12047 Berlin (Neukölln), www.katiesbluecat.de, Station: U8 Schönleinstraße, Mon–Fr 8:30–18:30, Sat–Sun 10:00–19:00
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.
Schwarzastraße 9, 12055 Berlin (Neukölln), Station: S41, S42 Sonnenallee, Mon–Fr 7:00–19:00, Sat–Sun 9:00–19:00
