A cafe disguised as a flower shop (or vice versa)
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 Schönhauser 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.
Blumencafe: Schönhauser Allee 127a 10437 Berlin
Opening times: Mon-Thurs and Sunday, 10am-6pm; Fri-Sat 10am-8pm
