Distrikt Coffee – Berlin, Germany

Hanging out at Distrikt Coffee in Berlin with MO and DS was cool but also slightly disorienting because we were speaking English in a German city in a cafe full of Kiwi waiters…

It became especially clear to me this visit to Berlin – people in Berlin don’t speak German?! What’s with that?! Even I’m a culprit in that – I was happily speaking German while we were in Hamburg but as soon as our train pulled into Berlin it didn’t seem natural anymore. Maybe it’s the amount of expats around? Even MO (who is German) feels that way…and this became abundantly clear when we went to cafes in Berlin.

We went to one where the waitress was Australian. When a customer ordered in German she had to get her colleague over to translate…how is this normal?!

Aaaanyway rant over – we started our breakfast with some fresh juices! From memory it was orange and beetroot, mixed with a couple of other fruit and veggies.

Organic Poached Eggs on Taste with Smoked Salmon, Dill Crème Fraiche and nasturtium

MO and DS both had the Organic Poached Eggs on Taste with Smoked Salmon, Dill Crème Fraiche and nasturtium (9 Euros) which was yum, but quite small.

Avo & Beets on Toast with Citrus, Whipped Feta and Radish, plus a poached egg

I had the Avo & Beets on Toast with Citrus, Whipped Feta and Radish, plus a poached egg (8 Euros, plus 1.50 Euros for the egg) – I feel like this is such an Aussie breakfast! The whipped feta was super tasty and complemented the avocado and beets well. I wish they’d chopped everything up a bit smaller though because it was difficult to eat…

I’d definitely recommend Distrikt Coffee. However, it’s a super busy cafe, so don’t expect to be able to bring a book a chill for a few hours. But there’s other cool places to hang out in Berlin so you’ll be fine!
