Tea glorious tea, the drink of kings and queens (and everybody else). The T Room & Gallery is one of those unique cafes you only find in Berlin, quirky, well designed and with a total relaxed feel. The T Room's ethos is 'take your time' and all food served here is home cooked and their is a fine selection of cakes, scones and sweet treats as well as a fine choice of tea and of course coffee, if tea isn't your thing. One thing that stands out above other cafes is the genuinely friendly atmosphere and the owners are very easy to get along with and have a chat with. The T Room is the type of cafe where you would spend hours hanging around. The music played in the cafe is excellent and they also have a Vinyl Station with a fine choice of records that customers can play, now I have never seen this before in a cafe, brilliant! The selection of english reading material is also worth mentioning, there are also future plans to introduce an english book shop in the cafe and english film and tv screenings. The T Room also offer High Tea in the afternoon where for a fixed price you can eat as much scones, cakes, sandwiches and drink as much tea as your heart desires. Another nice touch is that you can come in and order a picnic and take away a nice mix of their sandwiches, treats and tasty crisps. I must also mention that they also have a great gallery space downstairs and put on a wide variety of art shows giving young and upcoming artists a platform for their work. As their website states "Pop by for a cuppa and a friendly chat", I'm glad we did!
