1. Café Pförtner
In the gatekeeper's cottage at the former BVG workshops, today's Uferhallen, you no longer have to register with the gatekeeper, but can enjoy delicious, freshly prepared food. The café also has a converted bus and, in summer, numerous open-air tables. Thanks to the delicious Mediterranean-inspired dishes, the café is a popular luncheon in the neighbourhood. By the way, the menu changes daily, so be surprised.
