A cafe disguised as a flower shop (or vice versa)

Berlin's Blumencafe is both a plant and flower store and a cafe

Is it a flower shop or a cafe? In fact it's both, and with plenty of tables nestled among the blooms and foliage that spill from the store onto bustling Sch├Ânhauser Allee, the lovely 'Blumencafe' provides a perfect spot for soaking up the city's ambience.

There's a further surprise, too, which you may well hear before you get to see.

The Blumencafe is also home to a pair of Amazonian parrots, who lord it over their very own jungle of potted palms.

Their squawks and screeches provide a surprising accompaniment to a coffee break, but you'd never expect a flower shop that's also an eatery to have more conventional pets on the premises.
