When your belly grumbles in Berlin, you can easily find beer, pretzels, and currywurst to satisfy your hunger!
But what if you’ve got a hankering for something different?
My dear friend introduced me to these three good restaurants:
Breakfast 🥞 🥓
You can have breakfast at Benedict 24/7!
My younger daughter got the French toast with strawberries, blueberries, and lingonberries and a side of bacon. The bread had a crispy cinnamon crust on top:
My older daughter got the blueberry pancakes – look how thick they are:
The best part of having breakfast at 2 in the afternoon? You can have beer, which is exactly what I did!
I ordered the Black Forest pancakes, which were so rich that it was like eating chocolate cake:
Lunch 🍔 🍟
BRGRS BRGRS (Burgers Burgers)
They have more than one location. We went to the one on Greifswalder Straße.
The brioche buns were soft and the fries were salty – just the way I like them:

Dinner 🍝 🍕
I Due Forni
This family-friendly restaurant gets rave reviews for its pizza. However, I decided to have pasta:

My dear friend likes to shop for groceries at Edeka and Aldi, as well as organic stores, such as BIO COMPANY or Denn’s Biomarkt.
Another option is Lidl, the popular German discount grocery store.
I recently learned that there are Lidl stores in the U.S. — in seven states (so far): Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia.
At Lidl, you can get fresh baked goods like butter croissants and soft pretzels:
I picked up some snacks, like this microwaveable currywurst (I can still hear my dear friend laughing at me)!😉 It didn’t come with fries, but otherwise I thought the flavor was fine!
I also got a couple of cans of beer for less than one Euro each!
Prost! (Cheers!) 🍻
