I’d read that the cafe just around the corner from where we were staying was the closest to a Melbourne cafe you would get in Europe.
I won’t say no to that.
Melbourne Cantine in Neukölln is a trendy cafe which in fact does somewhat emulate the Melbourne-esque hipster vibe.
However don’t expect to get in & out quickly. It took 30+ minutes to put in an order, our food was served 30 minutes after that and the worst of it, our coffees arrived 10 minutes after our food was finished. I can’t even.
Can’t say that my belated coffee improved the grumpiness I suffer in the mornings. Yes it’s a medical condition.
As we slowly meandered to the Bahaus Design & Architecture Museum, we stopped for some glühwein on the way. Which did wonders for my frosty fingers.
An hour or two of perusing iconic German design, and to save me from spending $207,856 on a lamp (ahem, yes, it’s a necessity), the mister dragged me to hunt down Berlin’s (some say the worlds) best kebab.
After a 5km chilly walk, we arrived at Mustafa’s cart to find a line big enough to make you cry. No really, I shed a tear.
After 90 minutes of calculating the wait time, by the “minute per customer” ratio (no, I promise we did this), we finally made it to the front of the line.
And I won’t lie, it was worth it. After seeing almost everyone order the sandwich thingy instead of the kebab, we decided to take the plunge and order one of both. Both were good, but i’d go for the sandwich any day.
This sums up our time in Berlin and I loved it.
What better way to spend our last day in Berlin than wandering the streets hunting for kebabs and celebrating christmas early?
If you go, have some bratwurst & beer for me 🙂
