Berlin’s most understated cafe: Father Carpenter.
Münzstraße, known for its stylish fashion, boutique stores and heavy tourist foot traffic, is developing, changing and growing more lavish with mainstream global brand names every week. Fortunately, tucked away in the courtyard on the adjacent corner to the Weinmeisterstraße ubahn hidden behind the chaos, Father Carpenter is quietly serving some of the best coffee and brunch in town.
Since opening in the autumn of 2014, the café has grown quickly, both with a strong following of customers and in size. Using Five Elephant beans and most recently incorporating their own roasted beans, Fjord Coffee in partnership with Silo (another fantastic café in Friedrichshain), both the milk and black coffee is rich in flavour, balanced and elegant with bouquets of earthy and fruity tones.
The food menu has grown too, first starting off with just light brioche breakfast rolls, cakes and sweets, the café is pumping out delicious Sunday brunch meals including braised pork shoulder Eggs Benedict, avocado on toast with poached eggs and seasonal muesli plus many, many more.
Branching out into both sides of the courtyard, with free water, delicate flowerpots and fancy salt, spotting a table inside or outside can be difficult. With the space becoming so popular since winter left us table service has now been introduced.
Likely the most underrated café in Berlin, Father Carpenter is pulling out all the stops with delicious food, crafted coffee and a sophisticated but relaxing vibe.
