KÉK LÓ (closed)
In our series “Berlin Guide“ we share our favorite snack bars, restaurants or cafés with you. We reveal where to get the best vegan donuts in town, which Vietnamese tapas restaurant you should visit and where you’ll catch us eating vegan pizza. Here are all our Berlin recommendations.
We really don’t know why we didn’t recognized the KÉK LÓ in Kreuzberg before. Last summer Virag Toth opened her own cafe on Graefestraße and we passed thousand times and didn’t get it. Some weeks ago Julia discovered on Instagram the picture, you can see below, and we instantly knew: we have to go their – asap! Thanks to Instagram! You can have the vegan brunch every weekend for 8€ and eat as much as you can. We went their and tried almost everything.
Who is with us?
Isa was there first (as always) and waits for a high-ranking visitor: Tina! She is Julias sister and has come a long, hard way. After one hour she made it to Kreuzberg and we welcomed her joyful! Together with brunch-buddy Maximilian we are waiting for Tina. Come on in there!
You definitely have to try ..
.. we are having brunch today so the answer is clear: everything! It quickly turns out who is a brunch pro (Tina, Isa & Maximilian) and who is not (Julia). She is stacking so much things onto her plate of food she really likes, she doesn’t have the chance to try something new. Today we can choose between: pasta salad, rice pudding, yogurt with fresh fruits, fresh bread, several cremas, chili sin carne, humus and more! We tried all the dishes and can announce: everything was really good. The variety of dishes is not THAT big, so actually it’s quite comfortable. You’re not bored or overstrained, but rather you can manage to try all the dishes.
Who wants your last morsel?
Virag Toth! She is the owner of the café and comes originally from Hungary. When she was 16 years old, she fell in love with Berlin, so she decided to open a café here. Until now, she is doing the café by her own. Since January this year, she is also offering the brunch. She is curious and asks us about the mint-pea-crema, she made for the first time today. (Spoiler: it was very yummy.)
The best thing are ..
.. the high ceilings? .. the beautiful furniture? .. the pictures on the wall? .. the pasta salad? There are a lot of really pretty things. We would like to look at the walls for hours and to sit on every chair in the room..
Be prepared for ..
Kék Ló is not exclusively offering food. They also sell upcycled fashion in a second room. A nice after-brunch walk to digest all the food.
If this restaurant would be an animal ..
.. a blue tit! Very pretty, small & a bit shy.
