My Favorite Places to Eat in Berlin

One thing about Berlin that pleasantly surprised me was all of the incredible food! I had never known Berlin to be a “foodie” capital, but I think it definitely should be. You can get anything there and no matter what it is, it’s going to be delicious. Here are a few of my favorite places to eat in Berlin, Germany:

Fraticelli

Fraticelli is an Italian restaurant located near Alexanderplatz. You can eat inside or outside and since it was a beautiful, breezy September morning, I decided to eat breakfast at one of the tables outside. One thing to keep in mind though, if you’re not already aware, is that Berlin is full of bees! This makes it a little difficult to enjoy eating outside, since they’ll constantly try to fly into your food and drinks, so next time I think I would eat inside. The service at Fraticelli is pretty slow (they seemed seriously understaffed), so this isn’t the place to grab a meal if you’re in a rush, but if you have some time to spare then the food is totally worth the wait. They even have blankets to put over yourself if you get cold!

I had a cappuccino with cream and a glass of prosecco to drink. To eat, I had the brunch plate for two (obviously I shared it, it wasย a lot of food). The brunch plate had all kinds of yummy breakfast foods, like fresh fruits, various sliced meats and cheeses, scrambled eggs, sausages, grilled chicken, salmon, granola, nutella, butter, jam, and a basket of bread rolls. It was really a breakfast to remember. This meal was so filling, but in a healthy way instead of the “I’m about to explode” fullness you feel when you eat a lot of fried or greasy foods.

Il Buco Di Heidi

Il Buco Di Heidi is a little French cafe and another breakfast stop during my stay in Berlin. Once again, you can eat inside or outside and I chose to eat outside, which led to the same problem: bees everywhere. If you’re not a fan of bees, don’t eat outside in Berlin (obviously, something I kept forgetting). The service here was very quick, so it’s very easy to spend only about half an hour here and be on your way. The atmosphere is very much what a French cafe should be, cute and cozy.

To drink, I had a an elder and rhubarb German spritz drink. It was so refreshing and tasted amazing. Please don’t make the mistake of just getting a small glass like I did because it actually is really small! To eat, I had an omelette with smoked salmon. The portions here are generally not very big, but the food is healthy, fresh, and delicious while looking pretty, too!

Alexanderplatz Sausage Cart

Okay this isn’t a restaurant, but if you eat anything in Berlin, please eat a sausage from one of the carts in Alexanderplatz! They’re always there, day and night (I would know because I had a sausage for dinner once and then again for breakfast another day, I couldn’t help myself). I’ve never really liked sausages, but German sausages are really the best ones in the world, by far. It might sound like I’m exaggerating, but trust me, youย needย to try a sausage in Berlin. They’re crispy and full of flavor, even the bread they’re served on is soft and tastes great. If I could get on a plane and go get one right now, I would.

Burger Vision

Who doesn’t love a good burger? Burger Vision is the place to go if you’re craving a burger in Berlin. They have all kinds of burgers, from your classic double cheeseburger, to Hawaiian burgers, chicken burgers, veggie burgers, and more. The staff was super friendly, they even took the time to explain what some of the German words around the restaurant mean in English.

The burgers are excellent, made fresh right in front of you and they’re huge, juicy, and full of flavor! The fries and onion rings are just as delicious as the burgers. I had a Hawaii burger, which is a cheeseburger with pineapple. I’d never had a burger with pineapple, but it actually tastes really good ย and I’ve even started adding pineapples to burgers I have at home sometimes.

  1. That first place, Fraticelli, is hilarious. First of all, yay for the bees! I’m a beekeeper and know that bees are really friendly creatures whom we owe all our food to. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, the service is slow… at an Italian restaurant… if you’ve spent any time in Italy then you’ll know this place is super authentic. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Love this post it made me very hungry. I.hate bees so will defo set inside. All your meals looked great and I love the fact that they were not over the top fancy. Ps I don’t eat fruit with meat.

  5. I was so excited to read this post! We’ll be in Berlin in December and I am currently looking for places to eat for our week trip. Fraticelli looks and sounds positively dreamy, I hope we can make it there for breakfast! And the sausages were already on our list, but now I know where to go! Thanks for sharing!

  6. We absolutely loved Berlin. We especially loved it there for all the food. We went because Berlin is the Vegan paradise in Europe. Interesting to see that Berlin is basically an all you can eat buffet.

  7. I LOVE BURGERS, haha. I am going to Europe early 2017 and am so excited to hit Germany. Many people have told me that Berlin is one of the most underrated cities in all of Europe. I am beyond excited! (P.S. Its 3pm and i haven’t had lunch yet, haha)

    1. It’s so underrated, Berlin needs so much more appreciation! You’re going to have so much fun and lots of amazing food!
