Cafe Pförtner

Author: Frank Hearts Berlin Berlin, Germany


Located at the entrance of the Uferhallen, former workshop of the Berlin public transport company BVG, the Cafe Pförtner used to be the office of the gate keeper, hence its name. The cafe was introduced a few years ago as a canteen for all the artists that work at the Uferhallen and the performers from the Uferstudios from across the street offering breakfast, lunch and dinner for quite low prices while having a really exquisit dishes that you would rather expect from a trendy restaurant in Mitte. Over the years the cafe has also attracted the cool crowd from Wedding and Mitte who like to come here to have a peaceful and alternative place from the commercialised center. Especially in the summer it's a lovely spot to have coffee and cake outside in the sun or even in the abandoned bus that also hosts a few tables.

We normally recommend Pförtner as a restaurant for dinner, but if you are staying in Wedding and don't want to go too far they have a very simple and cheap but good cheese breakfast platter during the week with a few more options including egg meals on the weekend.
