Hallesches Haus – Space that can do magic

Its bigger title is General Store but it’s much more than that: brunch spot, coffee shop, event venue. For me though, it’s all about the space.

It was once the Postamt 61 (Post office 61) and now, a space that you can dream in. High ceilings, vaulted archways, tiny succulents and levitating plants are only part of its charm. The sun shines right through the roof here. And you can enjoy a mellow cup of coffee in the morning or indulge in a colourful lunch bowl or lunch plate on weekdays from 12:00 to 15:00.

Saturday brunch is a worthwhile treat, often gussied up with good-looking and spicy bloody maries. It usually runs from 10:00 to 15:00 but it does get exceptionally busy so I would recommend getting there early. Get yourself a table and order at the bar. 

They put a lot of love into their food here, which is why it’s so popular (check it out on Instagram). So, especially on Saturdays, give yourself some time to explore the space while you find a table and roam around the shop. These guys have good taste and have managed to fill the space with very comely items. 

I highly recommend you book ahead if you have a big group. But it’s mostly self service here, so paying separately is hassle-free. Yay! 

PS, since it’s an event space, make sure you check ahead for closing times. They vary during high season.
