In Berlin, you can not only go out to eat delicious food, you can also eat out in style. Every month we look for the best, tastiest, and most exceptional Foodspots for you.

Candy on Bone

We were out and about again in February and discovered fantastic food spots for you. For example, Candy on Bone. Not just the name of it is unusual, but also the interior: Marked by soft colours, Berlin shows its minimalist and modern side again here. As simple and gripping as the stylishly put together design may be, the menu items and dishes on offer are just as tasty, aesthetic, and colourful. In addition to the brightly coloured sweets, there are yummy cakes, selected beverages, fresh smoothies, and lovingly packaged organic products for local demand.


The German capital is an Eldorado for beer enthusiasts from all over the world. Innovation and tradition meet here. For example, in the cosy, rustic Pfefferbräu in Schönhauser Allee. The mountain brewery cuisine describes itself as down to earth yet refined. Because the restaurant and brewery are connected to the Theater am Pfefferberg, a visit before or after to one of the shows in the diverse stage programme is recommended.

Tajik Tearoom

There is a very special gastronomic surprise tucked away in one of the back courtyards in Oranienburger Straße. The Tadshikische Teestube (Tajik Tearoom) receives its guests behind heavy curtains in the warm light of chandeliers and candles. You eat on colourful cushions on the floor and are served traditional Russian and central Asian dishes. Another tip: it gets particularly cosy here when story tellers tell fairy tales of camels, princesses, Aladdin and co. over a hot cup of tea.

Lavanderia Vecchia

In Lavanderia Vecchia there is a reason clotheslines and dishcloths are hanging from the ceiling. The owners of Trattoria have made it their job to make the history of the former laundromat the interior concept of the restaurant. The result is a unique design with traditional Italian cuisine. Risotto with apple, Gorgonzola, and nuts is just one of the many promising dishes on the lunch menu. For the evening menu, it is best to make a reservation and if you are a vegetarian, inform them in advance because otherwise it is not possible to deviate from the menu.


We also found a wonderful food spot via Instagram for those with a sweet tooth in February – because the Bekarei in Dunckerstraße makes the hearts of cake lovers and sugar junkies beat faster. Everything is made in-house here – whether delicious, fluffy lemon meringue pie, traditional pastels de nata, or creamy NY cheesecake. And the best part: The family business even offers a home delivery service for its sweet treats. You can choose from magical cupcake boxes, genuine Krümel monster biscuits, or fine tartelettes. Everything is ideal for feasting on yourself or giving away as gifts.
