Cafe 100 Wasser – German Austrian Cuisine in Berlin – Restaurant Review

From the series: Europe is Hot, Berlin is on Fire

In the heart of Friedrichshain, one block from Boxhagener Platz, you will find the restaurant Cafe 100 Wasser, serving weekend brunch, late breakfast, and international dishes with an emphasis on German Austrian cuisine; bright colors, plenty of seating, great vibe and lots of meat on the menu, curiously not easy to find in Berlin where Vegan is the rage!
