Expert review of Café Einstein Stammhaus

This classy villa has a great selection of food and coffees.

Einstein Stammhaus (not to be confused with Cafe Einstein on Unter den Linden, which is also good but of no relation) is a renowned establishment whose clientele return day in day out for the great coffee and good food.

Food and drink: 

In the morning you can browse one of the many free newspapers and magazines over one of the excellent roasts, or enjoy the cafe's famed kafee und kuchen (cake and coffee) combinations in the afternoon - the apple strudel and strawberry cake are particularly delicious. The café also does large breakfasts and light lunches of sandwiches and salads, while the dinner menu features tasty treats like oysters, Wiener Schnitzel and steak and fries.

Ambience: 

The café has been a Berlin institution for years. Occupying an elegant Viennese coffeehouse in a grand 1920s villa, the café’s main room features tall hand-carved ceilings, walnut panelling and black and white photographs of 1920s Berlin. The café is usually populated by creative and media types, giving the atmosphere of a bohemian coffee house literati. During summer, you can dine al fresco in the pretty garden.

Service: 

Generally good but occassionally haughty service from waiters in immaculate black and white uniforms.

Location: 

In a charming Charlottenburg neighbourhood, close to Nollendorfplatz U-Bahn station.

Price advice: 

Dishes from 6-26 euros.
