House of Small Wonder

house-of-small-wonder-berlin-restaurant-cafe-brunch-lunch-johannisstrasse-what-defines-us-croissant-french-toastIt is the little things in life one must learn to appreciate, because everyday life is not about the big wonders; it’s all about the small wonders that make the journey of life so much more enjoyable. Just like a delicious breakfast with your best friend at a wonderful place full of light and plants. Just around the corner of the hustle and bustle of Friedrichstraße the guests of House of Small Wonder can enjoy a fabulous “All Day Brunch” in a warm, homey atmosphere – an oasis in the middle of Berlin.

This formula of success was first tried and tested in New York before it was shipped all the way to Berlin to delight us Germans with comfort food made of local organic ingredients and Japanese spices.

The freshness of the fruit perfectly offset the richness of the sweet croissants – possibly the best breakfast I’ve ever had.
