22 Amazing Lunch Spots in Berlin
Berlin’s gastronomy scene has a lot to offer. In addition to a delicious breakfast and dinner, of course, an amazing lunch. From street food, to traditional German to international restaurants. From greasy to healthy to classy. There is something for everyone and it was not so easy to choose my favorites.
As always, there is also a map at the end of the post to give you a better overview.
Lunch In Berlin
One of the most popular street food spots in Berlin is Burgermeister. Here you can get simple yet delicious burgers. There are several locations throughout the city, but the most famous one is at Schlesisches Tor, which is located directly under a train line. That also gives it its special flair.
2. Curry 36
Another street food must-try is currywurst, which was invented in Berlin. It is a sausage with curry ketchup and is usually eaten with a bun or fries (yes, in Germany we also eat mayonnaise with our fries). The best place to get a typical Berlin currywurst is at one of the Curry 36 stalls.

3. Döner Kebab
Döner Kebab is definitely my favorite German street food that you have to try! Döner can be found everywhere in Berlin. And let’s be honest, most of them are absolutely delicious. But if you want to try one that’s especially popular, try Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap. They say they have one of the best kebabs in Berlin. But be prepared for long lines, which can be expected in front of this food stall every day.
4. Café am Neuen See
Café am Neuen See translates as Cafe on the New Lake and that is also its best feature. Here you can enjoy German cuisine in an absolutely gorgeous location right on the lake. You can eat either in the beer garden or in the equally beautiful restaurant. Of course, you can also just stop by for a few nice drinks.
