Café Rix

Café Rix is an institution among locals. It's the perfect place to either start or finish your day (or night) in Neukölln. It boasts a nice large tearoom and attracts a mixed crowd.

Café Rix lies like a hidden gem in a backyard off the Karl-Marx-Straße, and it's easy to miss. But don't! It's one of the nicest places in the area: the interior has an old-fashioned flavor, and it's impressive, with big mirrors in the hall that used to be a ballroom.

Rix has a good kitchen with daily lunch offers. The popular brunch buffet every Sunday and holiday from 10am-2:30pm is worth a visit with everything from sausages, eggs, mushrooms, ham, fresh fruit, and yogurt. The fair price of €8 includes as much orange juice you like.

In the summertime there are seats outside in the calm courtyard under the chestnut trees where you can enjoy the locally brewed Rollberg beer, which is ecological and non filtered. That makes it naturally cloudy and richer in taste. It comes in two different varieties and is brewed at the same place where the Berliner Kindl beer used to be made. If you feel like it, you can visit the brewery on Fridays and Saturdays, and try the beer there.

Rix' neighbor is the Heimathafen theater with local performances, poetry slams, readings, and intimate concerts. The Swedish pop singer Lykke Li has played here, as well as the British folk and country artist Karen Elson, just to name a few.

Not far from Rix is also Berlin's alternative Neuköllner Oper opera and the over a hundred-year-old Passage cinema with its sneak-previews on Tuesdays. In the area there are also lots of galleries and interesting bars, the Sameheads, for example, owned by three English guys, which includes a designer clothes shop.
