Distrikt Coffee

Distrikt CoffeeAm I an avid coffee drinker? No! Call me crazy, but the taste just doesn’t do it for me. The fact that I’m still haunted by nightmares about my teachers’ coffee breath doesn’t exactly strengthen the case for drinking coffee either. Is there anything more horrid than starting the day with a whiff of someone else’s coffee breath? Ermm…no!

Distrikt CoffeeThat being said, there’s probably nothing more comforting than the smell of freshly brewed coffee, or ground coffee, or coffee beans, basically every smell connected with coffee that isn’t a person’s breath. So even though I don’t drink coffee, I love spending time in coffee shops. The coffee smell, the cake, the pastries, the pancakes, the cosy atmosphere…coffee shops are certainly a great place for a Sunday catch-up.

Distrikt CoffeeParticularly when you’re out and about with a food blogger with a penchant for good coffee as well as her beau, who happens to run a successful chain of coffee shops in London. We chose Distrikt Coffee as our preferred Sunday catch-up location, and weren’t disappointed. Don’t let the empty streets leading to the coffee shop fool you, though. This place means serious business, so be prepared to queue.

Distrikt CoffeeLuckily, our wait was sweetened by both the anticipation of devouring big portions of lovingly prepared pancakes, bread pudding and carrot cake, and the fantastic industrial interior. Exposed brick walls, wooden tables, iron chairs, leather sofas, and ceiling lights fashioned from copper pipes set the tone for a relaxing, slightly vintage Sunday afternoon in Berlin Mitte.

Distrikt CoffeeAlthough prices were almost up to London standards, I was super impressed by the fast and friendly service despite a packed house, the amazing interior, and the great variety of delicious sweat treats. Thumbs up for Distrikt Coffee!

    I’m used to be a caffeine junkie, I drink at least two cups a day. (I blame my thesis papers!) But now I’m an occasional drinker, I only drink coffee whenever I’m in a cozy place like this, catching up with my old friends… but if there are tea, I opt for it. It has less caffeine and in my opinion, much tastier and healthier.

    Such a gorgeous space. There really is nothing better than a cozy coffee shop to spend a Sunday in. Everything in the cases looked so yummy. We could for sure go for a chocolate croissant right about now 😉

      I’d suggest the bread pudding instead. It’s made of croissant instead of bread and so so tasty :) xx

    What a great coffee shop! The pastries look delicious would be the ideal place to enjoy a latte and almond croissant. Have a great day Jasmin! :) xo~ Lena

    Haha! I love coffee and will be in a serious fit if I don’t get my daily dosage of that darn caffeine but I don’t think the smell of someone’s coffee breath is appealing, ever and sorry to hear that your teacher scarred you for life (lol). And wow, what a beautiful coffee shop – I really like the minimalist interior style and your description about the fresh brew and yummy pastries is seriously triggering feelings of comfort over here =D xo

    Looks like an amazing hotspot! I also only just started drinking coffee, but before I absolutely hated it! Have a nice weekend! Any plans for Easter? X

      Haha…for me it was the other way around. I used to love coffee. And then I had too much one day and got a really upset stomach…and that was it. My love of coffee was dead 😀 xx

    As working in an interior design agency particularly for coffee shops, I really love viewing different shops around the world.

    Love the soft natural appearance of this one – bricks and white paint, reclaimed wood. Looks very good!

      Ah cool! Yeah, Distrikt definitely has one of the most beautil interiors I’ve seen in a while. The atmosphere is so cozy :) xx

    Such a nice and cozy place. <3 I love coffee so much but I started avoiding it last March because I always drink way too much coffee everyday. Seeing your post makes me wanna run to the nearest coffee shop in our place. Haha! I miss coffee. Btw, I love all the photos. <3

    Have a great weekend!
