It's buying season! We travelled to Berlin last month to meet with Girlfriend Collective, Embassy of Bricks and Logs and some other new-to-treen brands. Lots of you have asked us for recommendations so we thought it'd be a good idea to round up our favourite places to refuel and hang out.
We spent most of our time in showrooms, but we loved the area of Kreuzberg so much. You could roam the streets for an entire month and still only scratch the surface. From flamboyant flea markets to laidback cocktail bars, there's so much to discover in this capital of cool. Berlin is such a vibe.
If you know, you know. Their world-renowned vegan donuts are not to be missed. With multiple outposts throughout the city, it's easy to get your afternoon pick-me-up. They serve excellent coffee too.
Truly outstanding and unique Vietnamese cuisine. The vegan/vegetarian offering is experimental and has strong regional influences. The interior is lovely too!
Hummus & Friends
This laid-back eatery serves a variety of house-made hummus, salads, small plates and desserts. The ideal Berlin lunch spot.
Serving delicious, inspiring small plates to share, No/Bananas is a relaxed and cool place to refuel. Make sure you leave some time to peruse the local shops in Kreuzberg.
This small, cosy cocktail bar has all-brick walls, bold birdcage wallpaper and low Chesterfield sofas. Every day, they serve three different cocktails. It's the perfect place to wind down after a busy day.
