Yes, that really happened: I was having dinner quietly on my own, and was then being asked to switch to another table. Because monday night was apparently the evening where there were dance classes in the middle of the cafe…
So, Cafe Engels might be abit of an outsider. It’s located in the ever-more-popular Schillerkiez area, thus the local hipsters flock to this place during the day for the pricy coffee. With their MacBooks under their arms of course.
Those hipsters are a bit in conflict with the shabby interior, including a real pinball machine. In the evening hours the pub is much more relaxed: for a couple of euros you can have a decent warm meal, and the brownies are absolutely divine.
