Just a few steps off the touristy Hackescher Höfe is Sophienstrasse, a quiet and cute street, populated with authentic stores and cosy parks. Here in one of the courtyards you will find this food oasis. It's the best breakfast / brunch we had. The portions are huge, try the Assiette Francaise that comes with big pieces of cheese, yummy bread, generous slices of ham, artichoke and jam of course. Add to that a cheery juice or a cup of great coffee. Also have large choice of sandwiches and bagels. Both indoor and cosy courtyard seating.
