Cafe Blaumond is a cozy cafe located on a quiet street in Prenzlauer Berg. In a neighborhood full of cafes, Cafe Blaumond stands out as one of the best not only in Prenzlauer Berg but in all of Berlin. The cakes, salads, and especially the quiches are top notch. I especially like their homemade Spinach-Gorgonzola quiche and rhubarb cake. Yum! The coffee's good too. There's limited outdoor seating, but the interior is very inviting, especially on bad weather days. The friendly service and pleasant atmosphere make Cafe Blaumond one of my favorite places to hang out.

Cafe Casero is my local neighborhood cafe in Friedrichshain. I love it. The coffee, panini, and breakfast plates are reasonable and appetizing. The low key atmosphere of Cafe Casero stands in stark contrast to touristy Friedrichshain. It's my escape where I can read the newspaper, listen to wonderful music, and enjoy a cup of coffee at a table under the trees.
Chez Gustave is a charming and very friendly French cafe that's tucked away in Mitte. They have a wonderful selection of sandwiches and salads. I particularly like the coffee. I wish I had known about Chez Gustave when I worked in Wilmersdorf, it was on my route home. On the downside, Chez Gustave has a limited selection of pastries and cakes.
