Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany
Ackselhaus and Blue Home share Club del Mar as their breakfast
venue. It offers a superb selection of cereals, yoghurts,
fruits, fruit juices, jams, cold cuts, cheeses etc. I loved the
different varieties of German dark bread and multigrain rolls. In
addition, you can order cooked breakfast à la carte at extra
cost. Everything is beautifully presented on a teak buffet
The room itself is bright and airy, with light filtering through large glass panels in the porch and a series of aquariums with tropical fish on the walls. A gilded mirror, a chandelier, a pair of bright fish paintings and a fireplace (lit in winter) create an atmopshere which is comfy and exotic at the same time. If the weather is nice, you can take breakfast outdoors on the wide pavements of Belforther Strasse, which is a reasonably quiet road.
Club del Mar does not currently offer other meals, except to groups (by arrangement), so for lunch and dinner you'll probably find yourself wandering down to nearby Kollwitzplatz, a Notting Hill-like square with a small park in the middle, lots of restaurants around, and a great Saturday market. Needless to say, there are some superb dining options in other parts of Berlin, representing all the major cuisines of the world.
