So what makes a great Berlin cafe? Well for me its a combination of a few things, great coffee, great food, friendly staff and then the actual design of the cafe and the feel good factor. Sometimes in Berlin it is very difficult to find a cafe that has all of them but thats before I discovered Hilde... this cafe is perfect. They serve generous sized breakfasts, particularly 'The Hilde Breakfast" which looks and tastes wonderful. Hilde also has a fabulous Irish Breakfast and it is the real deal, all the products are imported from Ireland. They serve this at the weekend and is not to be missed especially for those missing this great weekend brekkie. Also on the menu is a range of tasty treats, freshly baked quiches, salads, 2 daily soups and some mouth watering cakes. I must also add that the coffee is 'more than fair trade' and it is from a local Prenlauer Berg coffee company, the prices are very good too. The decor is vintage style furniture and of an excellent quality and not shabby like some other cafes but I guess they were all chosen with great care for comfort and design. The window seats in particular seem very popular choice of seating, maybe next time I manage to get one as they were all taken when I was there. There is also a Vintage Jewellery cabinet by Glitz Museum which is a nice extra feature to Hilde. I must also add that the music selection while I was here was well chosen and very enjoyable. I just have to say that I was very impressed by everything and as I said its rare to find such a cafe and all served with a friendly smile. I've also been in here at nightime and it is a very cool bar too, good tunes and a cool crowd. All I have to add is, who is Hilde?
