They claim the food is made with love, if so then it is served up with a giant side order of unwelcome hostility. I was glowered at by the man and woman behind the counter when I entered (maybe my small daypack insulted them), given a surly reply by the woman when I asked if they had something I was... More

We stopped by the Beth Cafe for a cake and coffee. Coffee was adequate, cake somewhat less so. Service was mixed (some good, some disinterested verging on hostile). Other than to support the local Jewish community or keep kosher, don't bother. The rating of average is a gift.

I needed to kill an afternoon reading and decided to pop up there for a tea and a cake. The local was empty of people but full of nice Israeli souvenirs (mostly food and drinks) and I was astonished when, taking my iPad for reading, the lady firmly asked me to stow it away, as "electronic items are forbidden here"....

Pricey | service was not really friendly | food was in small portions and not really tasty-- one plain espresso (weak for my taste) costed almost...EUR 4,- I only hope these high prices are then redirected to the Jewish school next door or (at least) to the Community (Cafe is centered in the former Jewish neighborhood, and just around the...

Cosy small Israeli cafe with somewhat afraid staff with Bee Gees and sweet borsch. Take no cards. Good coffee special with whipped cream and cinnamon stick.

If you are looking for a nice calm terrace for your lunch, this is the perfect place!! We shared a big plate of different kind of Israeli specialties, the Beth Café with cinnamon was gorgeous and so well served. Beware, you won't be allowed to use your mobile or camera, reason unknown but apart from that... We took a picture... More

I see that others have taken offence at not being able to bring in backpacks, so not sure how they would react to not being able to pull out your mobile phone to photograph your food, the delightful surroundings, or whatever it is we all feel the need to do with our devices when we stop to eat and breathe...

Can tell the food here is really made with love as their sign says. Had THE MOST DELICIOUS cake (matzipan, cream, cranberry, rose petals on top) Gave me free glass of blackberry liquor too. Place is super cozy with charming furnishings set in an old house.. Just loved it here!!!

We were recommended this place by our guide and it turned out to be lovely! Actually, it was so cozy and comfortable, we didn't want to leave! We were very well taken care of, ate a lot and very good food. Highly recommended.

So I never got in the door, sorry not to be able to sample their goodies, & maybe discuss politics, the meaning of life in Israel under Netanyahu and sundry other topics. The two bored policemen guarding the place (from exploding rucksacks?) seemed OTT to me & I fell to wondering who was paying for this protection, & why, in... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
