“Nice atmosphere, simple menu.”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Finally got around to eating dinner here. It's a pretty standard German restaurant with a simple menu and a special weekly menu for items of the season. They offer a late breakfast during the week and on weekends a buffet type brunch menu. The food is reasonably priced and the atmosphere is that of a corner restaurant. Service is what you would expect, and this is not a really a location catering to the eating masses around Helmholtzplatz as most people were sitting and having drinks or chatting. It does have a few areas inside so you can try and find a quiet corner if you like.

“sehr nett?”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

i don't know why some people are saying the service was good. the food is good, and the price is reasonable, but the service is one of the worst. here the customer is always wrong! if you're masochistic, you could be happy here. I live in Pappel Allee, but the service made me stop going there. hey boss, you better think it over. you got the worst waitresses. Some people are visiting your place, cuz your food and atmosphere are good. But your service? dort ist die Kunden nicht mehr König!

“Fantastic! One of the best meals of my vacation”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

I had a rushed three day stop in Berlin on a three week vacation. On my last night I met a friend at his place and we all went to Café Butter. What a great restaurant! It definitely seemed like a place for locals and not tourists (I hate touristy restaurants). Super busy but with excellent service. My Berlin friend "warned" me that the portions here are huge, but we all ended up ordering too much anyway. Duck salad that was just out of this world. Nuremburg sausages and fries: excellent. Everything was wonderful (including the beer). Café Butter is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. I very rarely give five stars on Trip Advisor, but Café Butter definitely deserves it. Do yourself a favour and go!

“Good food, decent prices, friendly staff”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Good food, decent prices, friendly staff - this is the perfect recipe for a good restaurant and this is what you get at Cafe Butter. I recommend both the dinner and the breakfast - simple, good quality and served with much love.
