Perched on a sunny corner by Görlitzer Park, Eckbert Zwo is a Kreuzberg institution, which has been serving up German classics like Schnitzel, Rotkohl and Bratkartoffeln since the dawn of the new millennium.
Using only regional produce, Eckbert Zwo’s kitchen staff proudly constructs everything by hand, including those pesky tiny Spätzle and unendingly finicky Kroketten. The menu offers a variety of daily changing specials, like Kohlrabi (a German root vegetable) soup, as well as familiar staples such as Flammkuchen (pizza à la Deutschland), Beef Goulash and Sauerkraut speckled with Speck.
On scorching Berlin summer evenings, you’d be a fool not to take advantage of Eckbert Zwo’s extensive outdoor seating, a prime spot for people-watching and absorbing the Kreuzbergian atmosphere that emanates from Görlitzer Park. Colder days or nights might tempt you indoors, where the décor is simple yet inviting. Candlelit wooden tables and dark wood flooring stand in contrast with modern, rectangular light fixtures.
Breakfast is served daily until 17:00 and the traditional German Sonntagsbraten (Sunday roast) highlights their standards for hearty cuisine, friendly service and warm atmosphere.
