Café in der Gartenakademie – Coffee in the green

I came across this wonderful spot recently by accident, when my mother invited me there after a nice winter walk in the Botanical Garden Berlin. What can I say – I was overwhelmed, because the Café is situated in a huge green house, so you can take a coffee or have a snack while sitting under exotic plants and feeling like you’re in the jungle, harvesting the coffee beans yourself.

My enthusiasm even rose when I saw the fresh-made cakes they offer there, and believe me, they have their prices, but you will definitely not ask for a second slice. Anyway, I decided to go for a lamb filet instead of the cake (did I mention they are amazing?) and was finally blown away: All ingredients fresh and from the Gartenakadimie’s own orchards.

To top it all off, every week they have a piano player come and doodle some sublime tunes while you enjoy your time. Café-wise, it doesn’t get any better than this for me.
