Coffee, lunch & art at Café Oliv

You immediately notice that the owner of Café Oliv, Oliver Bahne, used to be an interior designer. The concrete walls, modernist chairs and contemporary art in this big-windowed corner café make Café Oliv the perfect stop after some shopping in the Mitte-neighborhood. The art in the café is a collaboration with Dittrich & Schlechtriem gallery (also in Mitte) and changes every once and a while.

 At the entrance, olive trees (what else?) welcome you and the beautiful flowers on the counter make the interior complete.

I didn’t really know what to expect but I have to say: this is the place to go for a fruit crumble, homemade ice-tea or a flat white.

We had a rhubarb crumble and a flourless, sugar free chocolate brownie. While the brownie wasn’t really my cup of tea (but then again I’m not really used to eat gluten and sugar free), the crumble blew my mind! It was so delicious, I definitely recommend you to try it out.

Also, the homemade ice-tea tasted really good: not too sweet and slightly sour, just the way I like it.

Oh: and they serve lunch as well. Think salads, vegetable quiches and sandwiches. It’s been a while since they updated their blog, but there are a few posts on it that can give you an idea of what they serve.

As you can imagine I was quite disappointed I only found out about this place on our last day in Berlin… But I’ll definitely be back! 🙂

See you there!
