A small café in the Helmholtzkiez district with colourful furnishings and hand-painted tableware by Hedwig Bollhagen. The coffee specialities are brewed in-house and are served with homemade tartelettes or rosemary chocolate cookies.

In the small café in Wedding, it looks like grandma's living room - and really every cake looks perfect for the Dilekerei Instagram feed. Open exclusively on Sundays from noon to 6 p.m.; during the week they are dedicated to orders, especially weddings.

The flagship and biggest feel-good factor is the branch in Wedding. Hipsters relax alongside walk-in customers in the light-flooded café with plants and industrial chic for excellent coffee and cake. Small but fine brunch menu on weekends.

Pannierstraße 40, 12047 Berlin, Germany

Neukölln neighbourhood institution with a large selection of homemade cakes. Turquoise walls, industrial lamps and vintage wood furnishings create charming flair. The cake counter offers cheesecake, excellent cinnamon buns, whoopie pies, and vegan options, among others.

Friedelstraße 31, 12047 Berlin, Germany

Primarily known for its excellently roasted coffee specialities. However, the homemade cheesecake is one of the best in Berlin and should get more attention. All branches are bright and minimalist and the nicest place to sit is in Kreuzberg.

Reichenberger Str 101, 10999 Berlin, Germany

Uhlandstraße 49, 10719 Berlin, Germany

Seasonal vegetarian lunch/brunch menu meets old building apartment charm at vegan chef Sophie Hofmann's zero-waste café. Especially nice are the window seats facing the street, the coffee from Vote, and the vegan chocolate cake with tahini frosting.

Hermannstr 37, 12049 Berlin, Germany

Cakes as far as the eye can see! Up to 20 varieties are available from the large display case in this small café. They can be eaten at two long wooden tables, each of which seats around ten people. Always well attended, it is best not to be afraid of contact.

Lausitzer Str 47, 10999 Berlin, Germany

Mahlowerstraße 32, 12049 Berlin, Germany

Vegan dreams come true at this cosy café with window seats on Monbijouplatz. The cakes, richly decorated with flowers and fruits, can be ordered whole, and a selection of vegan sandwiches, good coffee and smoothies are always available on site.

Monbijouplatz 2, 10178 Berlin, Germany

One of the oldest pastry shops in the city with nostalgic interior and retro floral wallpaper in the Hansa district. Here you get a traditional coffee-cake experience with a changing menu. Always in the display case and a must: homemade Baumkuchen.

Bartningallee 29, 10557 Berlin, Germany

In the heart of the Bergmannkiez, baking legend Cynthia Barcomi conjures up wonderful pies and cakes. There are many tables, but rarely a seat. The classics like American Apple Pie and Banana Bread are particularly successful, and the coffee is home-roasted.
