Frenc

Walking through Friedrichshain one sunny day we were thrilled to stumble into FRENC, who sell amazing craft beer and crêpes – what a concept!!! We were totally blown away and it’s still one of our favourite bars in Berlin. We thought we better ask owners Michael Arndt & Stefan Schröer a few questions before they get too busy with an exciting launch of their very own self-brewed beer… Read more

St Mauli

Located in Friedrichshain, St Mauli is in our opinion one of the best new eateries in Berlin serving their truly excellent Maultaschen in a slick, cool interior with DJs often found spinning awesome tunes there too! We absolutely love everything from the design to the music to (of course!) the incredible food! The concept, vision and business was set up by passionate owner Nico Bulla, and we were keen to find out a bit more… Read more

Nola’s Am Weinberg

With one of the best restaurant locations in town offering an incredible menu full of affordable Swiss delights both inside and on their huge terrace, Nola’s am Weinberg has naturally become a local’s favourite. We tracked down Stefan Schneck to ask him a few questions about how the restaurant came about… Read more

Lunettes Selection

Lunettes Selection is a remarkable store for exceptional vintage eyewear, and renowned as one of the best in the world….yet vintage glasses are in many ways quite a niche product and perhaps quite a risky choice to start a shop in. So we wanted to discuss the business with respected owner, Uta Geyer, who has turned her wonderful, specialist boutique into a fantastic success with both locals and critics. Read more

Katz Orange

Katz Orange Berlin

Breaking new ground in both cuisine and ethos, critically-acclaimed & beautifully designed Katz Orange is certainly one of the most exciting restaurants in Berlin right now. We tracked down owner Ludwig Cramer-Klett to dig a little deeper..

Roberta Kocht

One of our favourite home-style restaurants in Mitte, Roberta Kocht features chef Petra Kowalenko cooking her South German / Austrian cuisine passionately for each & every guest herself! Open just three days a week, being able to see Petra put some much love into your dish from the open kitchen feels like an incredibly personal experience. We caught Petra on a break to ask her some super quick questions here…

Ruben & Carla

One of Berlin’s best casual-steak restaurants, Ruben & Carla not only have a brilliantly-beefy concept to appeal to the differing needs of lunch & dinner customers, but they also specialise in steaks served the Italian way… We caught up with owner Sebastiano Caraccia to find out more. Read more

Paper & Tea

Paper & Tea is undoubtedly one of the very best specialist tea shops not just in Berlin but in the world, and being huge fans of both of their beautiful locations in Mitte & Charlottenburg we decided to ask founder Jens De Gruyter a few questions about the business.. Read more

Berliner Sommer

Popping into a Späti on a boiling hot day to spot a refreshing apple & vodka drink called Berliner Sommer was a moment we’ll never forget. The branding was cool, the idea was great…but trying it for the first time was truly INCREDIBLE! We ended up buying another after the first sip! Testing out their hot version too, Berliner Winter (which is equally as delicious) we knew we had to meet creator Benjamin Fischer and having gotten to know him better, we decided to interview him too!

WirNachbarn

You may well have spotted the superb community-platform WirNachbarn‘s colourful posters on doors around town? We certainly have and absolutely love the initiative behind their cause, so we sent passionate founder Dr Philipp Götting a few questions to get to know a little bit more about the platform…

Weinküche

Die Weinküche is not your average Supperclub  – in addition to being friendlier than most, the majority of their popular events are often focused around a particular region’s wine with most paired food choices being based around the wine, rather than vice-versa.

Run by passionate husband and wife duo Holger & Kerstin in their flat in Mitte, we caught up with them to find out a bit more about their supperclubs and wine-tasting evenings… Read more
