In the middle of Simon-Dach Str is the brilliant cafe, Dachkammer. It opens all day and in the evening it turns into a great cafe/bar. It looks like a normal cafe downstairs but upstairs is completely different, its like stepping into the 40's and sitting in your grannies living room. Its very comfy and its full of vintage furniture and weird bits and pieces in lots of little rooms. At present it seems to be non smoking. Staff aren't exactly the friendliest, at times they can be up too cool for this world. But you are coming here for the great ambiance and cool surroundings and the clientele seem very friendly. They also serve great breakfasts and in the summer sitting outside is a must, in the middle of one of the coolest streets in Friedrichshain.
