We came across some true coffee lovers and found cozy places to have a decent cup of coffee and also some small establishments where you can pick up your coffee to go. Just pick your personal favorite but make sure to check out these exceptional coffee places, our top 5 cafés in Berlin. Enjoy.



Café Westberlin is right around the corner of Checkpoint Charlie. The ultimate tourist spot but a few meters down the road you’ll be surprised to find this nice spot that is mainly filled with families, office employees who enjoy their lunchbreak and well… tourists. It is a very mixed and friendly atmosphere, it seems like everybody is welcome and as the owner Kai Brüer once said ‘we are child-, tourist- and laptop-friendly’. Besides your cup of coffee you may also enjoy some really nice snacks such as delicious sandwiches, homemade cake or a croissant. Westberlin also offers a great selection of books and magazines about art, architecture and fashion as well as a separate work and reading area.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should go have a coffee at Companion Coffee. Chris and Shawn who are running the café since January, are true coffee enthusiasts and know everything about the art of brewing coffee. Companion Coffee is actually a very suitable name as the café is accompanying the Voo store located in the same space which offers a very nice range of high-end clothing. The perfect location to enjoy some nice shopping along with your cup of coffee. By the way, the beautiful concrete and wood mixed tables are crafted by Berlin-based designer Sigurd Larsen and they are for sale. We sure appreciate the well-made mix of design, fashion, small treasuries, passionate staff and of course the delicious coffee.

Companion Coffee
Oranienstr. 24, 10999 Berlin

This café seems a bit remote, situated in a quiet neighborhood in Berlin Kreuzberg. The perfect space to enjoy some hot beverages, take a rest and eat cake. Five Elephant has its own little bakery in the back of the café that is producing tasty homemade cake that you should really give a try. Passionate about quality, their goal is to source the best coffees in the world in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible. They want their customers to understand the journey that coffee takes from the farm to their cup and they keep close contact with their suppliers. Responsible enjoyment in a cozy, laid-back atmosphere.

Situated in the heart of Berlin Kreuzberg, Chapter One Coffee is a place where quality and passion go hand in hand. Offering different seasonal espressi as well as slow coffee variations that undergo a procedure that submerges water, coffee and the element of time. The outcome of this filtered coffee is delicious, it has an almost tea like taste and is nothing like the rather questionable filter coffee you had so far. As the café is rather short of space you should consider to take your coffee to go, though of course there is a seating area that invites everyone to stay and enjoy a cup of coffee at Chapter One. The staff you’ll meet here is sure in love with the coffee bean and knows how to treat it real good. You’ll taste the difference, so take your time for a freshly hot or cold brewed cup of coffee.

Chapter One
Mittenwalder Straße 30, 10961 Berlin
+40 (0)30 25922799
Tuesday to Saturday 9:00 am – 06:00 pm
Sunday 11:00 am – 06:00 pm




At Double Eye you get served coffee by a man who definitely knows what he’s doing as owner Arno Schmeil was world champion in brewing espresso in 2005 and 2006. When entering the small café we have no doubt about that we are about to get something special as we can almost not squeeze ourselves in the already more than crowded little space. Though the baristas seem used to the perpetual line in front of the café and are really quick in serving what is known as one of Berlin’s best coffees. We approve, but just go and check it out yourself.

Double Eye
Akazienstraße 22, 10823 Berlin
Monday to Friday 09:31 am – 06:29 pm
Saturday 10:05 am – 03:29 pm
