Small House Of Wonder, Berlin

Small House of Wonder: Johannisstra├če 20, 10117 Berlin, Germany

When in a city you don't know, you often find yourself picking up food from bakery's and eating in whatever restaurant is convenient at the time. When I was in Berlin, I wanted to find really cool cafes, where the food would be truly delicious.

I took to Instagram and started following some Berlin based bloggers and the 'visit_berlin' Instagram page to hunt down some cute little cafes. This helped me find Small House Of Wonder, a quaint and quirky little cafe. The food is made with organic local ingredients and combines classic breakfast dishes with a Japanese twist. On first entering there is a spiral staircase surrounded by leafy green plants and foliage to take you up to the cafe. As you head up the stairs you are greeted with a relaxed atmosphere. Wooden tables fill the interior, all different shapes and sizes and the place felt full of locals, hiding away from the tourist points of the city. 

Simon and I decided to order two different breakfast dishes to share. We love to do this as then you get to try more than one thing on the menu. We ordered the potato gratin and scrambled eggs with a Mediterranean salad, which we liked to call our main course, as well as ordering the croissant French toast with maple syrup, whipped cream and fruit, which was our dessert. Who said you can't have a two course breakfast? We also both ordered lattes and Simon had a coke too.

This breakfast was absolutely delicious. The scrambled eggs tasted amazing, they were made with cream and were the perfect consistency. I never would have thought scrambled eggs would go so well with cheesy potatoes, but it was delightful. The Mediterranean salad on the side added extra flavours and freshness to this slightly heavy breakfast dish. It was the perfect accompaniment.
Then the french toast. JUST WOW. I have never had croissant French toast before but my lord was it a treat. Crispy on the outside and soft in the centre, soaked in maple syrup and topping with fruit and cream to taste was divine. I would love to find a recipe for this and try whip this up myself some time.

The food here was amazing, the staff were super friendly and the whole cafe experience was just so lovely. If you are ever in Berlin, this cafe is really worth the trip. 

"everyday life is not about the big wonders, its about the small wonders that make things just a little more pleasant. Outside lies the heart of Berlin, inside there awaits a relaxed greenhouse atmosphere, bringing a summer feeling bathed with light into the city." Small House Of Wonder
