Hg2 : The Hedonist


Easily the busiest Berlin café on the Kastanianallee (though by no means the best), you’ll be hard pushed to find a table during the weekend at this favourite neighbourhood haunt. Serving customers for 11 years, Schwarzsauer was the first bar/café in this street. Many of its original customers still stop by for a morning coffee and the clientele is a bizarre mix of crusty old men and fashion-flaunting hipsters. The tiled interior has remained intact since Day 1 and there is little demand for change. At weekends locals clamber for a seat at the wooden horseshoe bar or at one of the many outdoor tables. Food is basic and fairly unremarkable, but that’s not really why you come here. Schwarzsauer plays its trump card during summer months, when all night openings are a dead cert.
