Dating from 1872, this tavern is known for its Bavarian Knödel and billiards, and it’s been a tradition since 1872, having survived World War II bombings. In days of yore, you could see everybody from Lenin to Brecht playing billiards here. The menu offers snacks and hearty fare, easily washed down with mugs of beer. The menu is old school, but covers everything from a simple slice of bread and emmentaler or ham, to goulash soup, salads (including a Russian salad), Wiener Schnitzel, sausage platters, and smoked trout with potato salad and creamy horseradish. Breakfast is also served until 2pm. There’s even an billiard museum, only open Sundays 2 to 4pm (2€), tracing the history of pool since the days of ancient Egypt.
