Hg2 : The Hedonist


One of Berlin’s cafés slightly secluded at the top end of the Tiergarten, this lock-side café feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the Ku’damm. African street traders, students, dog walkers and elderly couples all gather on the tables outside to enjoy the riverside sunshine beneath weeping willows. The interior is a mixture of rustic pub and classic 1970s kitsch, the focal point being a bizarre light fitting, which could pass as a prop on the Starship Enterprise. There’s a definite sense of institution about Schleusenkrug and change is something that happens slowly. The menu is surprisingly good for a café of this sort.
