This cafe was recommended to me by a friend, and it was great! The food (patacones) was delicious, and the cafe has a great atmosphere. You can sit inside or outside; the staff are friendly; and the food is well-priced. I ate here twice during my stay in Berlin!

Very nice atmosphere. A sweet little place for coffee, chai tea, or drinks. They have home made cakes and chess/draughts boards too.

FIrst, make sure you go treasure hunting in Boxhagener Platz, where, on Sunday, there is a great flea market. When you get tired and are happy with your finds have a seat at Macondo, where for 5 Euro you can get an all you can eat buffet brunch. We got a table with a park view and filled our plates... More

I recently had breakfast here after we came by here one night and were told that there was nothing to eat. You won´t easily find the ingredients of the breakfast at other places in Berlin, I had bean salad and stuffed empanadas, for example. The price for the breakfast was reasonable. When we arrived just before noon it was pretty... More

Macondo is a cozy cafe that's just a few minutes from where I live in Berlin. The ambiance invites you to lounge and relax on its vintage sofas, armchairs, and tables. The day I visited, I had the Colombian breakfast (€ 5,50), which included 3 arepas (corn cakes made from a special precooked corn flour), 3 empanadas (stuffed pastry), beans,... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
