Also at Brekkie, check out the coffee cup ... excellent
The joy of being in a new place is experiencing some of their culinary traditions and for Miss Ines and myself this included the relaxed tradition of Sonntag (Sunday) Brunch.
This involved a late start and a visit to Intimes Kino-Cafe on Boxhagener Straße in Friedrichshain. While a little tatty on the outside, inside it's a wonderful cosy, little cafe with counters packed with a mountain of food. Brunch in Berlin is actually a buffet and the Milsch Kaffee is a virtual bucket of coffee (we know how much I 'hate' my coffee!). We ate until there was no more room, then walked down to the river to help it settle and to enjoy some free outside art in the form of the East Side Gallery, a glorious, but fading remnant of the Berlin Wall.
Some of the more famous images are gradually either flaking off or being covered in graffiti from people adding their names to the wall. The side of the wall facing the Spree River is still being used by graffiti artists to add new works of varying quality, some were excellent.
The day was rounded out with a visit to Zionkirche, a little church
Obligatory Brekkie Shot!
which opens it's belltower on Sunday afternoons to allow you to access a fabulous view over Berlin just as the late afternoon sun cast a golden glow on the city (yes there was actually some sun on this day). A nice relaxed day finished with a stroll down Kastaineallee back to Schöenhausen Allee and Miss Ines' home.
