[Meet Berlin] The Happy Cafes * Glücklich am Park *

Second bogpost about Berlin, oh yeah, I delivered!

As I've mentioned it last week, I was in Berlin. Wasn't really doing much there. None of the touristy stuff at least. Just lots of walking around. Ok that's touristy. But I really wasn't walking around to do the sightseeing! Just the Berlin Wall... and Alexander Platz... and the Brandenburg Gate... but in a totally untouristy way! (PROOF: lack of photos of the sights.) Anyhow, I also sat down I lot, which is my favourite thing to do when on vacation. Sit down to eat and/or drink.

That is how I discovered this cute little sisterhood (cause I was in two of them - though I'm seriously assuming there might be more) of "Glücklich" (which means happy in german, hence the blogpost title, get it, get it?) Cafes.

The first one was this Happy at the Park (Glücklich am Park) Fashion Cafe/Shop.

Why I call it Fashion Cafe? Cause of the window decorations...

...and the fact that they had a little shoes and clothes shop on the first floor.

They also provide quite a selection of fashion magazines to get you in the fashion forward spirit whilst sipping on your coffee.

Oh it was a nice, sunny day that day.

 Inside where the coffee and toast making happens.

I discovered this cafe's sister on my last day in Berlin when I was trying to get me some heavy foods before my 5 hour 'no-food-on-the-plane' flight to Gran Canaria. It was the Buy Yourself Happy (hope you're enjoying my wonderful literal translations) (Kauf dich glücklich) Cafe, where they had lots and lots of waffles! Yum.

Inside. Oh and btw, this is the cafe with a magnificent toilet area that I've already raved about in my previous blogpost!

I indulged in some banana chocolate & cream waffle business and although it was very good (and kept me full right until the evening), I regretted a little that I didn't go for the vanilla - sour cherry option... ...I guess it'll have to wait 'till next time.

And if you replace the banana with almonds you get my boyfriend's choice:

To sum it up, I highly recommend both Happy Cafes. They sure made me happy! Although I have to admit, when on vacation, it don't take much to make my day.

Oh and before I go... speaking of Berlin, remember this one or am I just getting way too old?
