It’s become almost impossible to find a simple, old-fashioned, inexpensive Kneipe, or neighborhood tavern-restaurant, in ever-upward and always-gentrifying Mitte, so this is a great place to know about if you want a taste of old Berlin. There is no “decor” to speak of, just tables (some of them shared) and the bar. The food is simple, hearty, and delicious. The menu is limited to a few traditional Berlin favorites: cabbage rolls, pea and lentil soup, herring with onions, pickled eggs, Buletten (meatballs), sausages and a few others. Accompany your meal with a glass of beer vom Fass (on tap) and enjoy this unfussy bit of old Berlin—while it lasts.
