Hungarian Kino brunch
A Hungarian-owned music salon housed in a former public bath in Friedrichshain, Badehaus is now bringing its affinity for Eastern European culture to a new terrain: Kino brunch. The brunch starts at 11am, although at 11:30 the reservedly friendly staff seemed surprised that anyone would be interested in eating so early. Surely enough the neighbourhood’s punks were still nursing their hangovers on the pavement across the street, and with the exception of a bunch of beer-drinking expats, there was not much action in the cosy premises.
On offer is a simple but plentiful breakfast plate (cheeses, fruit, toast, quark, an egg and, of course, Hungarian salami; €7.50-9.50), which comes with a cup of coffee and a movie ticket included in the price.
The film starts at 1pm – mostly Eastern European arthouse, like punk friendship flick All That I Love, Poland’s 2009 submission for the Oscars. All are shown in original language with English subtitles – no dubbing!
So eat outside, soak up some summer sun before retiring for a good flick, while comfortably sitting on car-seat chairs – the perfect medium between doing something and nothing on a lazy Saturday.
