A Russian breakfast bar
Noteworthy for: The Sunday brunches attract a loyal crowd to the sunny terrace.
Word to the wise: The staff here do speak English, but reluctantly, so brush up on your 'ei' and 'speck' before you go.
Dedicated to a certain famous cosmonaut staring down at you from the walls, this cafe, situated in what was East Berlin, cherishes it's Russian vibe. Once the huge breakfast plates of eggs, cold meats, cheeses and dark breads arrive, you're suddenly in the midst of Moscow.
Drinks-wise, the Russian beers and vodkas slip down worryingly easy, even in the morning, when most waiters would raise their eyebrows at such a request. Not here, however.
