Berlin

Café Richter

Friedrich Wilhelm's personal favourite midday haunting spot, where cakes of varying frothiness vie for tourist attention. Of the neighborhood's many wannabe-Kaiserreich cafes, this one not only fulfills the Gemütlich ideal, with charming décor, delicious baked-on-premises pastries and plenty of outdoor seating for hot days, it also leaves your wallet intact.

Take a seat alongside the ladies-who-lunch and sample an array of well-priced goodies, such as the Schwedenschnitte, a fruit tart whose flaky, rich crust dissolves perfectly into the tangy, fresh, and delightfully gelatin-free sour cherries in the middle.
