good food

this little place used to be one of my favourite lunchtime places when i lived in berlin - you can get quick, well cooked food for a fairly good price. And that in the expensive part of town ;)

I was disappointed to finally find this place only to find it was closed - I was there near 5PM (I went the wrong way on Kufürstendamm and was too late). However, I wanted to give some insight for tourists. If you're planning on going to Kufürstendamm(aka - Ku'Damm), a major shopping area in Berlin, this is probably where you should eat lunch. It's conveniently located just off of Kufürstendamm and is pretty easy to find, just make sure you call to see if they're open first! :) 3 cows for the convenient location (it looked really nice too).

Has seen better days

2 Posted on 08 / 28 / 2010

In the good days this used to be 100% vegetarian and the standard of the buffet was decent with quite a varied choice and reasonable vegan options. The price was quite high however, and the turnover of customers the same. It's very popular with workers on lunch and probably shoppers who want something cheaper than the expensive Ka De We food hall over the road. Since serving meat, the vegetarian options are still quite good but now there is simply no need to go there based on the number of 100% vegetarian establishments in the city. A good choice if you happen to be in the area, work / live there or don't want to pay the extortionate prices in Ka De we or Kudamm. They appear to be more focussed on their catering enterprises now but still put some effort into the daily buffet offerings.

Pros: fresh prepared food
Cons: serves meat, expensive

There is a routine to this place

4 Posted on 01 / 11 / 2010

When you get out of Wittenbergplatz station Einhorn is just about on the kitty to KaDeWe- with the station in between them.
Decor is white with some red. It is light and breezy looking but thankfully it was warm inside!
Hot food is at the counter and this had crumbed carrots with lentils,stew and potato mushroom bake amongst other choices. You can add Frankfurter sauce and fresh herbs. There was meat lasagna. There are also soups. The self serve salad bar is opposite the hot food. It is plentiful with grilled vegetables,lots of salads including couscous,noodle,green and potato to name a few,dips,sauces, olive oil,balsamic vinegar and bread.
Cakes are in a display cabinet. I saw about five including cheesecake,pear flan,chocolate torte. They looked good.
Drinks include fresh juices,fizzy drinks,beer and hot drinks.
For lunch I had the potato mushroom bake and loads from the salad bar. It was good and very filling.
I think this is a self-service establishment with a method like Starbucks does. I guess it's straight forward if you understand German or if you expect it. Not meeting either of these I enquired about hot food and was told "no, you can't" in answer to "can I have these two" or "yes" to the potato mushroom bake. The situation was a little vague/ unclear to me. When I was given the hot food I was told "there's salad" and this was the last I heard. I don't expect to be served in complete English when I'm not in an English speaking country but I don't think this was the issue. It turned out later that they could communicate in English fine but were just a bit offhand I guess. When I returned later to enquire after something lost they weren't very helpful either. Nevertheless when it turned out I had made a mistake with taking my food they were friendly enough about it.
The hot food is €4.50 and it turns out that the salad you take is weighed at the till where you pay for everything beforehand. I don't know what the rate for the salad is as I missed the weighing step out. They charged me €6 altogether in the end which unbeknownst to them was a veritable bargain considering how high I piled my plate (I ate it all). The hot food was just okay value- it was mostly potatoes- how expensive can that be? Unless the rate for the salad bar is astronomical though I think it is probably decent value for it.
Note:the taps in their toilets are sensor taps- this is an excellent thing. They need to be installed in all toilets to beat the bacteria loop.

Pros: very good salad bar
Cons: staff a bit offhand

Einhorn Wittenbergplatz

I ate at Einhorn Imbiss at Wittenbergplatz 5-6 (near KaDeWe) and it's a good place to have a salad bouffet. Some warm dishes available.

Well this place was a little crowded because it was so good. It was a little sit down and serve yourself food type of place. Almost like a little cafe. Everything is not vegan, but at point it was which makes me a little disappointed but i hope in the future that will change again.

I enjoyed eating here

4 Posted on 02 / 06 / 2008

This is a very good option for people whose German is so poor that they cannot manage to spit out "Ich bin Vegetarier" without embarrassing themselves. You just pile up a plate, pay, sit, and eat. It is comparable to a Whole Foods salad bar, but with real, breakable ceramic plates. There were maybe 10 to 15 dishes on offer. Room-temperature grain- and legume-based salads were abundant; hot, main dish-type constructions were not. Nothing made my day, but everything was at least good, and the total experience was very good. Vegans and healthy eaters should be very happy here. Cheesy, fatty, nap-inducing elements are limited, but not altogether lacking. If you like things on the heavier side, just keep piling until you make up in sheer weight what is lacking in density. It worked for me.
The staff was delightful and the environment was relaxed. We visited during off hours and had our choice of tables and chairs. It looks like seating during peak lunch hours could be a challenge.
Conveniently located between the Savignyplatz S-Bahn and Uhlanderstrasse U-Bahn stations.

Pros: User-friendly, Cost-effective, Hyphen-inducing
Cons: No lasagna, No french fries, No egg rolls

Great lunch/ breakfast place

4 Posted on 11 / 16 / 2007

During my stay in Berlin I went to this restaurant twice. It is only open until 18:00, so more of a breakfast/lunch place.
You can walk pass the buffet en choose what you like. When you go pay they weigh the food and the weight is what you pay.
Everything is freshmade and sometimes changes per day.
there is a hot and a cold buffet section.
You can sit in or outside. When you sit outside you have a great view on the wittenbergplatz.

Pros: healty foods, buffet, fresh

Great!

5 Posted on 05 / 21 / 2007

Great food, a LOT of sallad choises, small prices... We got there a half an hour before closing times and they had only three meals left (an indicator of their quality) - we took two of them and both were excellent. The salads were great too. You can just cram your plate with any salad combination you want and for the price you just weigh your salad plate on a scale - simply great! The seating is not very cosy - most tables are for standing, with some high chairs. Not a place for spending a lot of time in, rather an eat-and-go place. If you're tired, choose another restaurant or eat at this one and go to a cafe.

Pros: great food, cheap food, lots of salads
Cons: not for tired folks
