    Summer-special "Lavendelwasser" is the perfect accessoire to complete your bohemian Helmholtz-Style. But caution: more than three drinks possibly make your tummy ache.

    Waiters could be a tad bit more friendly but whatever, the decoration is great, there's lots of room and the cakes and coffee are great.

    Really cool place! Half liter of Berliner €2,70. Smokers and no-smokers area. Nice place to chill out before partying.

    Cozy place for a drink but what's the thing with no dogs allowed? Come on Wohnzimmer - you in Berlin.

    Cozy atmosphere. The interior is amazing and the music is chill. The Moscow Mule had generous amounts of vodka, and cheap too!
  • Stephanie R.
    Great bar, not many spots in the non-smoker section. Get here early, even on a weeknight for a spot.

    Coffee is good. The place is baroque. And the stairway to the toilets really worths a look!
  • Thê-Minh T.
    It really feels like you're in someone's home. Chill place with a non-smokers area 🚭
  • Teresa R.
    I went for coffee and I found a rather bad coffee (but charged as barista- hipster Berlin price) made with no care. The space smelled cigarette (coming from the smoking room). Music was OK, at least

    At first a warm and nice place where you could spend your whole life. But from a year or so, unfriendly staff has turned the place into a yuppie-posh-modern place to see and get seen. Sad :(

    Awful & rude service. The coffee is nothing special. You can get way better in other places. The cakes are very good. But the worst is the service. Specially the blond waitress / bar woman. Very rude.
