Food and drink
While Anna Blume also serves lunch and dinner, it’s for its breakfasts that this café-cum-florist is justly famous. Standard breakfast items such as eggs and muesli are on offer, but more highly recommended are the set breakfasts, which are large and well-presented, with each one named after a flower - the Anemone with salmon, shrimp and eggs, for example. If there are a few of you, go for a platter, which features ham, eggs, fish and fruit arranged on a three-tier silver tray. Anna Blume is also a good spot for afternoon kaffee und kuchen (coffee and cake) - cakes, tarts and pastries are arranged behind a glass vitrine and the floral theme extends into beverages like rose tea.
The centrepiece of this Art Deco cafe is a a large Mucha mural of a girl with flowers in her hair; the scent of real flowers from the adjoining florist fills the café. The Jugendstil theme continues with red leather banquets and a cosy corner with red velvet drapes and a chic chandelier. You can also sit outside on the terrace and borrow a book from the free library that's been fashioned from a nearby hollowed out tree trunk.
Staff are usually friendly but expect a bit of a wait if it’s busy - particularly at the weekends.
Near to bustling Kollwitzplatz in Prenzlauer Berg - an area very popular with families and creatives.
Set breakfasts are 8 euros. The breakfast platter is 17.50 euros for two and 24.50 euros for four.
