Macondo: A Cafe With Good Food But Lacking Hygiene

Macondo is a cozy cafe that's minutes from where I live in Berlin. The ambiance invites you to lounge and relax on its vintage sofas, armchairs, and tables. The day I visited, I had the Colombian breakfast
(€5,50), which included 3 arepas (corn cakes made from a special precooked corn flour), 3 empanadas (stuffed pastry), beans, and salad. It was very tasty and quite filling. 

On the plus side, the service was excellent and quick. There's plenty of reading material and a nice view of Boxhanger Platz. On the negative side, there's a backroom where smoking is allowed, and the smoke tends to drift into the non-smoking area. In addition, the restroom needs help. There was no paper, no soap, and absolutely, no cleanliness!
