House of Small Wonder, Berlin

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

"Why the name House of Small Wonder? Because everyday life is not about the big wonders, its about the small wonders that make things just a little more pleasant."

House of Small Wonder originally opened in 2010 in Brooklyn, New York and then made its way to Berlin at the end of 2014, bringing with it its greenhouse atmosphere, filled with plenty of (beautiful) greenery.

After a long morning of sightseeing, Marie and I decided to both go for their sandwich menu which was served with a soup of the day and a choice of salad. Marie and I both went for their avocado and homemade chive goats cheese sandwich. We both ordered the spinach salad and the soup of the day was corn - we would have never ordered it, given the choice but were pleasantly surprised.

Our meal was accompanied by a sparkling lemonade punch which was Crémant (a French sparkling wine) with their original homemade mint lemonade.

Their menu is full of great options for breakfast, all day brunch, lunch and pastries, so basically right up my street. Plus the interior is super, super cute as you can see from the pictures and it's located quite centrally so perfect if you're visiting (map below).

The restaurant had options for meat eaters, vegetarians and even vegans so it's great for everyone - plus it had numerous Japanese influenced dishes such as Katsu Don (Japanese style pork cutlets with rice, egg, cabbage and katsu sauce) and the Onigiri set (onigiri rice balls with vegetables and miso soup), which I was tempted to get .

The food was honestly really, really good and not too expensive, you can have a look at their menu here (click!) My friend Marie found the restaurant via instagram, which is honestly one of the best social media platforms to find places to go when you travel, it's great!

p.s. They only take cash so come prepared - if not there's a cash machine around the corner!
