After a few years of observation while wandering in Berlin, I have visited many different places, be it a small galerie, a temporary sports bar, a bike shop, a book shop or just an open apartment to the street and sometimes a mix of all. Walking from S-Schönhauser Allee to S-Eberswalder Strasse you meet some of these specimens. You don’t need to make a stop in the one euro shop which offers sausages and clothes, but you can stop in the Blumencafé a bit further down the Schönhauser Alle.
First time I passed the Blumencafé I thought it was a flower shop. The second time I saw the table outside and the waiters, it was a coffee place and flower shop. The third time I entered the place and heard the two parrots living indoor between the flowers in the almost amazonian forest, it was a coffee place, a flower shop and a parrot’s house.
Don’t hesitate to stop by, you will be hidden by the plants covering the terrace and forget that you were walking on a noisy street. And if you fancy smoking a cigarette, the outdoor sofa made of dried straw looks very comfortable is there for you, also it is kind of dangerous, but living on the edges is the thing keeping you alive.
