Hallesches Haus in Kreuzberg is a large stylish coffee place serving vegan cake and daily lunch specials such as a soup, sandwich or a bowl as well as breakfast specials on Saturdays.
Located just down the road from U-Bahn station “Hallesches Tor” (and the rather ugly “Poco Domäne”), Hallesches Haus is a large café serving daily lunch specials as well as sandwiches, cakes, and cookies.
The first thing you’ll see once you get in is the design store that is attached to the café. There you can purchase stylish lamps, accessories, posters and small furniture items (#scandistyle, hehe). The café itself is decorated with lots of things available here.
Inside the huge space of Hallesches Haus, there are lots of large and small wooden tables perfect for individuals as well as larger groups. Everything fits in very well, stylish, but not over-the-top-chic. There are lots of art prints and plants hanging from the ceiling, creating a hip, but welcoming atmosphere.
Although the number of plant-based options is not overwhelming, the beautiful space, good coffee and the quality of the food make it a lovely place to take a break in.
They usually have a couple of vegan cakes and/or cookies available including banana bread, chocolate cookies or a chocolate cake. Lunch options can include a sandwich or bagel, a soup or another warm dish such as tart.
When we visited on the weekend, they had a vegan green bowl with brussels sprouts, broccoli, and avocado as well as a vegan sourdough sandwich with beetroot on the menu.
During the week we had a hummus tomato bagel and a very delicious sweet potato nut tart.
Being a popular brunch spot on Saturdays, you should bring some time as it may take a little longer to receive your order. Brunch is served from 10 am to 4 pm.
Due to the free Wi-Fi, Hallesches Haus has become a popular place for students, freelancers and creative minds getting some work done. During the week you can do that anywhere inside; on weekends they kindly ask you to use the large table in the back of the café (which is totally acceptable).
Besides coffee and cake, there are also small evening and weekend events held here including discussion rounds or small food & design markets.
If you’re planning on eating something, make sure to get to Hallsches Haus before 4 pm – the kitchen closes then.
Inside there is space for at least 60 people, outside another 40 can easily find a place to relax.
We recommend one of the daily specials, a coffee and a piece of cake.
We visited “Hallesches Haus” in September 2018.
