Fodor's Expert Review Café Aroma
On a small winding street in an area between Kreuzberg and Schöneberg known as Rote Insel or "red island" because of its location between two S-bahn tracks and its socialist, working-class history, this neighborhood institution was an early advocate of the Slow Food movement. The food is Italian and focuses on high quality, locally sourced ingredients and everything, whether it's an innovative prepartion of artichokes or beef fillet with green peppercorns, is delicious. Brunch is extremely popular: pile your plate high with Italian delicacies like stuffed mushrooms, meatballs in homemade tomato sauce, and bean salads, but leave room for the fluffy tiramisu, which, of course, they'll bring out the moment you declare yourself stuffed.
