“Tasty food, but too crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2011

We had the fomous brunch here on Sunday. If you plan to do likewise make a reservation a week in advance, it get really crowded. All tables were reserved when the opened at 10 a.m. By 11:30 new guests were waiting between the tables for some early leavers to take their table. The situation at the buffet was not different. The food was arranged in two aisles, where hardly two people could pass each other. Even if it was freezing outside, people were sitting outside!
Why would people go there voluntarily? Because the food is great. In Berlin, there are many brunch options which all offer more or less the same. Morgenland stands out, their food has an authentic Mediterranean appeal. There are, for example, a couple of spreads like hummus but also some others that I hadn´t tasted before.
Bread rolls are also better than average. Additionally there were some shrimps and fried eggs (not scrambled, as usually.

“Be sure to go ONLY for a saturday or a sunday brunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2011

We went for dinner on a sunday night and it was pretty bad. The service was friendly but very very slow. We had to ask for menus, silverware, and wait forever for our food and bill, despite the fact that there were only five or six other people in the restaurant. I ordered the avocados stuffed with tomato and mozzarella and my girlfriend got a baguette with mozzarella- both were literally drenched in olive oil. The avocados were hard, the tomatoes were clear, and there was no mozzarella, and each avocado was half filled with oil. On the flip side the interior was cozy and the music was excellent. We heard such good things about the place, but i think the positive reviews were solely in reference to the saturday and sunday brunch.

One of the best brunches in the city. It is difficult to get a place on a Sunday morning but nevertheless it is worth to wait..... :)
