Du Bonheur: A Little Bit of France In Berlin

Berlin has lots of bakeries, pastry shops, and cafes. Some of my favorites include Cafe Blaumond in Prenzlauer Berg, Mr. Minsch in Kreuzberg, and Aileen and Priscilla in Friedrichshain. Yet, even at these wonderful places, I've never been able to find a really good croissant.

Luckily, I've discovered Du Bonheur. Nestled in Berlin's Mitte district, Du Bonheur offers a wonderful selection of pastries, tarts, macaroons, quiches, soups, baguettes, and cakes. 
Run by two French trained chefs, this warm and friendly cafe/bakery has the best croissants I've been able to find in the city. Their savory treats are also worth a try.

One downside to Du Bonheur is the coffee, which compared to the pastries is merely adequate. On the other hand, visiting this traditional French bakery is like going to Paris. Du Bonheur has je ne sais quoi, that certain French style that's difficult to replicate outside of France.
