The succinctly titled KaffeeBar promises little, but delivers a lot, with a less is more approach that extends beyond mere linguistics. Cakes are baked daily in the kitchen and the coffee, served with a smile, is top-notch. It’s an oasis of calm just minutes away from the hubbub of Kottbusser Damm, with airy rooms and natural tones providing perfect respite from the pulsing streets, or frosty outdoors.
In the back room, tiered wooden platforms with cushions are custom-made for a little relaxation, while large tables out front provide a good space to work on. And despite free internet access, a full-scale Mac attack has been kept at bay in this café, which has proved a fine addition to Graefekiez.
