I went with a swedish visitor, S. and her visitor from England to this cafe after a long afternoon of sight seeing through mitte. I have often passed by this café and wanted to stop in because it looks really old-fashioned and nice, with lots of wood and comfy seats. The interior was in fact very old-school, reminiscent of Berlin cafés in the 20s and the height of cabaret and cinema (at least I imagine since I wasn't alive back then). Strangely enough I was less upset here than elsewhere that people were smoking. Like a parisian cafe, the smoke seemed to be an essential part of the decor. When we arrived there was no space so we snuggled with some chess players at the back of the café. The place is very dimly lit which creates atmosphere but jives poorly with the nice weather outside. Of course, if you really want to sit outside they also have a nice terrace in the back alley that leads to one of my favorite weird book stores/comic shops in Berlin. S.'s visitor tried to speak some German with the waitress who was, like usual, pretty much alone to serve the entire place. Since he didn't speak any German he ordered a coffee with a lot of milk for S. that was the topic of conversation for several minutes. We couldn't decide whether the woman had understood wrong or whether the coffee in the place was always so huge, so weak and so full of milk. I stand by my theory that she made a milchkaffee instead of a kaffee. Conflict aside we had a nice time chatting and resting our tired legs before continuing on our seperate ways.
