Actually, Zeit für Brot at Alte Schönhauser Straße is a bakery. But Zeit für Brot is much more than that. Attached to the bakery there is a café where families with children meet who need to take a break from running around on the playground opposite the café. Others step by before their shopping tours at Hackescher Markt. Employees from the surrounding agencies and start-ups come here for lunch break. Inside it is busy. The café offers self-service, guests sit at tables or on cozy cushions in the windowsills. If it becomes too hurly-burly inside, guests use the tables in front of the café on the street. Those who weren’t lucky enough to get a seat can enjoy their breakfast, lunch or cake on the opposite on a bench with a beautiful view on the TV tower.

The bread is organic and handmade and differs from the unit goods of average organic bakeries. Baking at Zeit für Brot is real quality craftsmanship: traditional recipes and an intense aroma formation ensure the distinctive flavors. Ingredients from sustainable organic farming are exclusively used here. Guests are spoiled for choice in view of the broad selection of bread. Many breads are gluten-free and suitable for allergy sufferers. Those who want to have breakfast here, get a very good coffee and enjoy crumpet classics like rolls with raisins or chocolate. A special treat are the cinnamon rolls. You should try snacks like focaccia, quiche muffin with carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and tomatoes and the sandwiches here. For breakfast you can select from egg, spreads and toppings.

Tip of the editors: Definitely try the Käsedings (cheese thing) – Yes, the snack is really called like that.
