We had a fast breakfast - it was very disapointing. Tried the sandviches with cheese and the one with turkish ham. On side with tomato, cucumber and olives. Not high quality food. Not very tasty. Very simple and cheap. Not worth it.

Although this cafe does not specialise in one cuisine like the rest of the cafes along Steindamm, (i.e. kebabs) I thought it had a really good choice of food no matter what time of the day it is. It has a good vegetarian selection and...More

During lunch time, we went to this café and ordered a coffee, tea, a muffin and a few biscuits. Approximately 25 minutes after ordering nothing had arrived. I got one waitress' attention, she came over and asked if I had already ordered with her colleague....More
