Me and my friend wanted to have a nice fresh lunch. We went in to the restaurant and saw a nice looking waiter with so much charisma and we hoped to get her. Ofc we got her because it seemed like no one else was working in that place but her.. the man that seemed to be the “manager” where sitting down and having a cop of coffee while the rest where running around and stressing. Not professional!
I had a rice gamba bowl witch tasted fantastic!! Super fresh and very good taste with the kimchi.
The waiter was a Swedish blond girl that had such a genuine way of serving, she was amazing and made the lunch/dinner so pleasant for us.
I’m would go back to be served by her again. But it would be nice to see a little bit more smiles on the rest of the colleges faces...

Incredible and tasty food. Nice environment, views and music. And of course, everything vegan. A place to comeback :)

Starting out with having a „wait to be seated sign“ up which left us waiting for 5 min + even though the restaurant was half empty. Now that’s still ok. But it just continuously went downhill from there. After having to wait on menus for 10 min, we were shocked by the fact that they had reduced their really interesting and good menu full of variety to 2 pages of snacks and salads.
After trying to get any of the 3 waiters attention for over 20 min one of them finally came over. She said absolutely nothing and just took the order before walking off with a fake smile and rolling her eyes.
The food was not seasoned and underwhelming at best. Most of the salad was actually wilted and bitter and the portions were incredibly small for how much it cost.

The only pleasant thing about our visit was a male waiter with 2 stripes tattooed on his arms who genuinely seemed to care about our experience and was very friendly. Unfortunately he only brought our check since the other 2 waitresses who had served us before were standing in a corner chatting and playing on their phones.

I think anyone in the area is 1mio times better off just getting one of the delicious cakes downstairs at Goodies!

We ate our lunch here and I love to walk the walk up to the cafe and shop, it made me feel like beacons had arrived in Berlin! The service was quite slow though although when the food came it was delicious. I had lots of choices a vegan but there was less choice for my non-Feagan boyfriend unlike in other places in Berlin where he was able to find something you like quite quickly. I ate the Raw bowl and he had the bruschetta! It was a nice atmosphere and good views over East Berlin from the window seat.
