And here they are, our choices of the best cafés in Potsdam.
When entering this café your first look will meet the wall on the other side the room, which is entirely studded with roses and carries the lettering “Kaiserwetter“. Next to it you’ll come across some velvet chairs in tender colours of rosé and purple as well as golden cuttlery on the tables. Kaiserwetter – the word stands for a sunny day with a bright blue sky. And so, this whole concept of the café seems to contribute to the fact, that you’ll always feel a little like in the middle of a fairy tale when visiting. In our heads, tiny fairies are having a dance of with pink unicorns, while we are enjoying a huge cappuccino and contemplating which of those delicious cake creations will fly into our mouths next, like milk and honey. After a visit, you’ll not only feel the sunshine from your tummy, but also from your heart.

#2 MISS GREEN BEAN
Behind this unusual name hides one of the most beautiful cafés in Potsdam’s city centre. Jungle wallpaper and modern prints meet muted colours and the cosiness of real wood. The café has two floors. On each you‘ll find many seating areas to chat with friends, work in peace or immerse yourself in an exciting book. Those who haven’t brought any reading with them, will even find a nice selection of reading material in the café.
A long dining table invites you to an extensive lunch with your favourite colleagues. The lunch offers range from delicious quinoa bowls to avocado sandwiches and layer salad. Everything is of course also available in veggi and vegan. Those who prefer to sit outside will find a padded windowsill and comfortable round-chairs in front of the café. With a piece of the delicious chocolate tart, this is also the ideal place to relax and watch the hustle and bustle of the streets.

Already at first glance, this beautiful café enchants with its loving and stylish furnishings. In the large armchairs and cosy seating areas inside and outside you can relax and linger wonderfully. But Potsdam’s first Vegan Lifestyle Café doesn’t just score with its beautiful appearance. In addition to the very cordial service, the great cuisine is particularly impressive. All dishes are not only freshly made, but (you may already suspect it) also vegan. Homemade apple pie, croissants, stuffed dumplings and Matcha latte make the hearts beat faster, even for non-vegans.

#4 BUENA VIDA COFFEE CLUB
„Be Nice or Go Away“. This is the slogan hanging framed behind the counter and immediately we took this little shop into our hearts. The café is so lovingly furnished that you can’t help but feel at home here. In winter, the cosy atmosphere ensures that even the grey, dirty weather is sometimes forgotten. In summer, thanks to the large bench in front of the café, passers-by can be watched while relaxing with your cold brew or iced coffee. Treat yourself to one of the best cappuccinos in town and, of course, one of those irresistible pastries from the display!

#5 CAFÉ HEIDER
Café Heider is located right in the city centre and is often referred to as the living room of the city. One reason might be the traditional interior. Secondly it’s owed to the fact that people can simply sit here together for hours talking, eating and enjoying their time. In addition to fantastic breakfast choices, the Heider is also known for its great selection of cakes and tarts. In summer, the large outdoor area invites everyone to sit under wide trees with a view at the Nauener Tor. Take a seat with a cup of coffee and a large piece of happiness from the cake display.

#6 DIE ESPRESSONISTEN
If you like Latte Art you’ll will love the Espressonisten, because in this place everything revolves around the perfect coffee. The friendly baristi will conjure up your favourite specialities from the best Italian beans. No matter if you enjoy your coffee black or with flavour, single or double, hot or as iced coffee. Every cup is prepared with a lot of passion and know how. And hey, why don’t you treat yourself to one of the delicious Pastel de Nata along with your drink,too? Those who like to watch the preparation of the small latte artworks should choose their seats close to the counter inside. But when the sun is shining, it’s really relaxed sitting in front of the door, in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Gutenbergstraße.
