(PT) Um sítio pacífico com pratos únicos - Edit

Decidi visitar este café "afro-italiano" situado num local discreto durante uma curta estadia em Berlim. Almoçei a horas "portuguesas"; já devia ser perto das 15h quando me instalei.

Fui surpreendido pela positiva pois a essas horas o local tinha poucos clientes e o espaço era acolhedor, o que me soube bem face ao curto tempo durante o qual me estava a habituar à cidade.

Os donos eram de uma enorme simpatia, tanto o Bachir (que nos traz a influência Senegalesa) como a Elisabetta que incorpora as ideias italianas (de Sardenha).
Há ainda o bónus de, através da mistura de culturas, podermos falar tanto Alemão como Francês, Italiano ou Inglês com os donos do café, talvez até outras línguas.

Passando ao que interessa :), instalei-me e pedi o prato Hummus Teller, que é um prato composto por vários legumes (batata, um abacate, tomate, pimento e outros) com uma quantidade generosa de hummus posta sobre um pão preto sardinense, plano e crocante, com aroma a carvão (que serve também de "colher").

O prato colorido era convidativo; os sabores foram tão acolhedores quanto o espaço.

Achei interessante como a dose era substancial, não sendo no entanto uma bomba de hidratos de carbono que fosse prejudicar a minha deslocação pelos enormes quarteirões berlinenses. Havia muitos legumes e a refeição satisfez-me até ao jantar!

O preço foi ligeiramente mais alto do que outras ofertas disponíveis em Berlim, mas estamos a falar de uma moeda ou outra. Não tem peso sobre a minha decisão de lá regressar!

Devo também dizer que a escolha musical é de óptimo gosto, para além de que, curiosamente, ouvi música portuguesa (cabo-verdiana talvez) quando lá estive.
Se foi coincidência ou se veio depois de termos estabelecido a minha nacionalidade, não sei, mas foi do meu agrado :).

Recomendo a qualquer pessoa que venha a Berlim que experimente este local, independentemente das preferências alimentares.
Que eu lá volto, isso é garantido.

Pros: Local discreto e acolhedor, Comida reconfortante e diversa, Donos de uma grande amabilidade

Cons: Nada em particular!

Combinación perfecta - Edit

Elisabetta y Bashir tienen un lugar encantador donde comer buena comida mezclando sabores italianos y africanos. Comimos el bowl africano, totalmente recomendable. Es cuscús, ensalada, salsas con verduras y pan crujiente. Los gnocchis con salsa casera de tomate también estaban muy ricos. No dejes de probar el mus vegano de chocolate. ¡Espectacular! El sitio es acogedor al igual que sus dueños con una decoración súper cuidada. Totalmente recomendable.

Delicious food and great atmosphere - Edit

Delicious food and a warm and cozy atmosphere. The owners were very friendly, and I loved the fusion of Italian and Senegalese cuisine, which is a combination that I don't think I've seen anywhere else. I highly recommend the Sunday brunch (book ahead, because it fills up quickly). I visited Berlin over Christmas and was very happy to find that, unlike most other places, Ataya Caffe was open even on Christmas Eve!

Pros: Interesting mix of Mediterranean and African, Friendly owners, Open even on Christmas Eve

Cons: Offers cow's milk in drinks, so not totally vegan

My #1 Favorite Vegan Cafe in Berlin!! - Edit

I LOVE ATAYACAFFÉ and cannot recommend it highly enough! The food, like the café itself, is sophisticated without being pretentious and is deeply comforting. Over the last week I’ve eaten at the café several times and each new dish is a wonder!! My first meal at Ataya was a hearty, warm bowl of luscious pumpkin-filled ravioli, smothered in a refreshingly light, savory red sauce and topped with fresh sprigs of arugula. The ravioli was paired with a perfect side salad, a large mug of expertly brewed chai tea, and the most amazing dark chocolate mousse I’ve ever tasted. The café owners, Liz and Bashir are deeply kind, engaging and work hard to create a relaxed atmosphere perfect for dates, meetings or solo meals. Run, don’t walk to AtayaCaffe! Your belly will thank you!

Pros: Delicious, Fresh Food, Atmosphere, Location

Top-quality food and Mediterranean vibes in Prenzlberg - Edit

Dropped by here for lunch the other day and had some of the best gnocchi I've ever tasted (served with fresh salad
and crispy Sardinian Casarau bread). The place is cosy and welcoming, with a mix of African and Sardinian décor that brought a whiff of (much needed) sun and sea into my day.
Hosts Betta and Bashir were friendly and open...
In short: perfect food in a perfect atmosphere. Looking forward to coming here again soon.

Pros: amazing food, positive vibes, friendly staff

They also do green slow juices and smoothies.
Great music selection.

My favourite vegan spot in Berlin - Edit

I am always in Berlin, the vegan capital of Europe, looking for food spots. Today I encountered cafe Ataya and went there for brunch and the whole experience was fantastic. We had a vegan brunch, which consisted of diverse fresh foods deliciously prepared and combined, with an Italian/African heart which just makes it above average in taste! Besides the great combinations and food choice, the place offers proper Italian coffee, a cozy living-room chill atmosphere and very kind and attentive hosts. I am so happy to have found this place, it is definitely my new favourite in Berlin. I can’t wait to join again for lunch, buffet Sunday brunch and much more - they have different events depending on the day. :)))))

Pros: Food, Location/ambiance, Coffee

Colourful, comfortable place to linger - Edit

I love this little cafe! Had the vegan gnocchi kartoffeln for lunch with a salad. It was like eating back in Tuscany again. DELICIOUS. I also brought a German friend here recently who has living in Berlin for years. We both had cappuccinos and after taking his first sip, he said, shocked, that it's one of the best cappuccinos he's ever had. I agree because the cappuccino is what I get every time I come here. Plus the colourful mismatched furniture and blankets and the jammin' Afro fusion jazz playing always puts me in a good mood. Then with great employees who speak English, German, Italian... You can't go wrong coming here!

Pros: Great food, Great coffee, Great vibes

Cons: Won't want to leave

Ein MUSS in Berlin - Edit

Ich wollte das Ataya Caffe ausprobieren, weil ich gelesen habe, dass es vegan, afrikanisch UND italenisch ist. Also meine meine Ernährungsweise mit meinen Lieblingsküchen kombiniert. Ich wurde von dem Inhaber extrem herzlich und offen empfangen, der Kaffee war toll und ich habe die African bowl sowie auch das italienische Gebäck probiert. Es hat alles super geschmeckt, das beste afrikanische Essen, was ich in Berlin gegessen habe. Als ich dann am Sonntag noch einmal den Brunch probiert habe, wurden meine Erwartungen noch einmal übertroffen und auch das italienische Essen war das wohl beste und authentischste hier in Berlin. Die entspannte Atmosphäre und der die süße individuelle Einrichtung laden zum chillen ein. Ich komme liebend gern wieder!! Danke!!!

Pros: excellent african-italian food, nice vibe, Individual furniture

Cons: Brunch only 2x a month

Hidden Gem - Edit

What a wonderful surprise to find AtayaCaffe .
I ordered the hummus which was outstanding and with lots of veggies (patotes ,brokkoli,salad,avocado ,carrots,cauliflower ,zucchini,...)
My husband had an African bowl ,that was a kind of creative/ecletic mix of west African food. DELICIOUS !!!
Later we shared some cakes : chocolate mousse ,that was heavenly and a cheese cake TOP.

People that run the cafe' are super welcoming and friendly.
