Over the last months, working remotely has taken a huge step in our lives. Especially for people working digitally. As you may know, I used to be a Cabin Crew but Covid19 happened so I’m not anymore (for now). Consequently, I focused a lot on our blog over the last months and kind of became a digital nomad. We spent the whole month of August traveling around Germany. In the meantime, Oliver was working remotely. We spent a bit more time in Berlin as it is Oliver’s hometown. This city offers an endless number of great restaurants and coffee shops. Consequently, you can also find amazing places for digital work in Berlin. We actually wrote a Berlin food guide last year.
Working in a coworking space or a coffee shop is also important when you work remotely to keep social contact as you can easily feel lonely and isolated. If on top of that, you can have great food and coffee, it’s a jackpot! Delicious food, warm and cold drinks, a cozy atmosphere and comfy sitting are the most important criteria in my opinion, don’t you agree?
So let me share with you our favorite places for digital work in Berlin. The ones I always go, not always to work, but they are always on my Berlin bucket list.

The Visit is a coffee roastery which is super convenient as it is right next to where we stay when we go to Berlin, in Wedding. If you are not in the neighborhood, the easiest way to come here is to get the U-Bahn (Berlin metro) to Leopolplatz station.
I’m going almost every day to get a latte to take away but sometimes we just chill there and get some lunch or snacks. You have single tables as well as a bit round table in a corner (it gives you a bit more privacy) that you can share with others. Outside of peak hours the place is pretty calm so you can focus on your work and enjoy a nice coffee and snack.
Funk you – Natural Food

The first time we went to this restaurant/coffee shop was a few years ago while walking in Berlin streets in the middle of the afternoon and as usual, I was starving. The place was so appealing, it promoted healthy food and drinks, it looked cozy, I loved the vibe, so we entered. The food and the drinks were delicious. I remembered taking a salad and a latte (again) but I can’t tell you which one sorry. I just remembered telling Oliver “This is SO good!”.
Since then, I always want to go back and last summer I just decided to go for a few hours in the afternoon and work on the blog from there. There as well, you can choose to sit at your own table or at the big roundtable in the middle with other digital workers and students. Either way, outside lunch hours, it is pretty calm so it is perfect to focus on the work you have to do.
The cherry on the top, the location is great. There are plenty of great small shops and restaurants around. It is the perfect place to meet people after work and go for dinner or a walk around Alexanderplatz.
TORSTRAßE 114, 10119 BERLIN
Fechter was for a long time my favorite brunch place in Berlin and still is one of my favorites. Their “chocolatine” is as good as in France and sometimes better than some in French bakeries! The main reason why we love this place is the food. Especially their Eggs Benedict. For this reason, if you choose to go there, please don’t just order a coffee, order some food too!
About working there, it is not a very big place so I doubt you can stay a full day. But if you are looking for a place to crash just for 1 or 2 hours outside of peak hours, I think it is great.
It is 500m away from Funk you – Natural food, so for the same reasons, you can totally end up your day there and enjoy the neighborhood later.

Not far from Fechtner, you will find St Oberholz. This is a proper coworking place with two floors. But also, tons of tables of different sizes so you will always find a seat. You can come here to work alone or as a group and check their website for more information. Plugging systems are also available and wifi. You don’t need to register in advance or pay a fee, you only need to consume while you are there. This is definitely one of our favorite places for digital work in Berlin.
On top of that, the chilled and cozy atmosphere is also made to focus on the work you have to do. I like the spot at the back of the ground floor (on the right when you enter). There is a little corner with only a few tables under a beautiful dome shape ceiling. It is perfect to be a bit isolated and concentrate.
I don’t know if I have to talk about food again. By now, you probably know me. If I recommend you to go somewhere it means the food is great.
I hope this article helps you to plan your trip to Berlin if you need to work while you are there. Those are our top favorite places for digital work in Berlin but there are so many other places we love. You can for example check here our Berlin food guide here to discover amazing restaurants. Berlin is truly a paradise for food and coffee shop lovers. So if you are like us, you will love it. Please let us know if you have any recommendations in Berlin so other readers can add them to their list and we can taste it next time we are in Oliver’s hometown.
