I’ve been to this restaurant / café several times already for either lunch or in the afternoon. The dishes and cakes are very tasty and the choices are quite contemporary. Prices for food as well as for some drinks, both warm and cold, seem to...More

Cozy place in Moabit with nice outside area. Children are welcome and have a seperated place, where they can play, while you enjoy delicious burgers, that you can built yourself. Friendly service personal.

Staff likes to argument against the customers voice and wishes. After one member of the staff apparently gave away our table to another staff member, we found the same deflective behaviour. Bad service seems to be endemic there.

Joined a few colleagues in this residential area for something to eat, i.e. informal dinner. Food was fine (I had a typical German Flamkuchen), but nothing extraordinary. Straightforward, well prepared food. Service was good.

We were at the Buchkantine in conjunction with a 70th birthday party and we liked the modern interior and the idea that one could enjoy a book while having a coffee, beer or some food. The food that we had was good and nicely presented....More

You may not realize Moabit is one of the city’s most
central neighbourhoods when you arrive at Hauptbahnhof
(central station). Surrounded by waterways, Moabit is
a quiet island protected from the hustle and bustle of
Berlin. The crowds that do gather prefer spending
their evenings in cozy restaurants over the party
venues offered by other districts. With its beautiful
parks, old housing and romantic industrial areas, life
