It’s finally summer in the city and I am so ready for having fun in the sun. This year one of my favorite coffee-garden is the one in “Clärchens Ballhaus”. They recently opened an extra garden plus a cozy hidden terrace in the backyard. It’s one of the most adorable hideaways, that Berlin Mitte has to offer.

It’s also really nice in the evening. Wine, dine and dance away …

A good coffee in the morning makes my day! For years I have been very bialetti, until I tasted a Belgium drip coffee. My friend was using a simple filter and ever since I am so melitta. I fell in love with this beautiful ceramic filter, bought it and took it home. Using freshly ground coffee is the best there is. The coffee is so mild and soft with an amazing flavor. Believe it or not – I turned into an early bird! Just love it when the apartment smells like coffee all morning.

What about you? How does your perfect coffee-moment looks like?

Ps: In the afternoon, I’m still so bialetti.

After all the shopping in the creative Bermuda triangle of Rue Custine, you shouldn’t continue your Paris tour without a lunch at the wine shop “La Cave du Nansouty”. Great food, good wine and a very sympathetic waiter makes this little tour in the 18th arrondissement complete. All the three shops share a great sense of humor and a passion for the unexpected! Enjoy!

… and so is my motivation.
Sunshine all day and I have finally started working on my new project Not Quite Berlin.
I want to talk about my discoveries, introduce you to the places I love and share my favorite addresses in Berlin.

Today I went for a little walk to shoot my first pictures.
Starting with my all time favorite Cafe Liebling at the Helmholzplatz in Prenzlauer Berg. On the corner of Dunker-/Raumerstrasse I always find the perfect coffee moment plus a great selection of magazines.
