Flora at Roamers
First of all, Merry Christmas, awesome readers!
I don't know if anyone even reads blogs around Christmas, but i'm posting in case some of you do!
Also, i'm still in the country and it's raining, so i really have nothing better to do, and this way, at least i'm not eating non-stop.
As you all know by now, this isn't exactly a lifestyle blog, or a travel blog, or even a blog about Berlin for that matter, but for a while now i've been wanting to post more Berlin related stuff, restaurants and cafes in particular.
Not reviews, just sharing the places that i like visiting for whatever reason.
I never went out much when i lived in Copenhagen.
There were many reasons for that, but the main ones were that it's too expensive, you can't bring your dog anywhere, and i was kind of a boring married homebody.
Living in Berlin means exploring new places all the time, and lucky for me, i have a group of friends who live to try out new coffee, new food, and new venues.
I know at least some people visit this blog hoping to find tips for either Berlin, Tokyo or Copenhagen, and to make finding these tips easier, i've made a label called "Flora's Berlin" and i'll be applying that to future posts about food, coffee, cocktails, and other awesome things.
I plan to make yet another label for Tokyo too, particularly for vegetarians, since i tried so many awesome veggie places on my trip back in April.
The first Berlin place i wanna feature is called Roamers and it has been a favorite with me and my friends since our first visit, and we try to go there pretty much every weekend.
When i came back from Mexico, i asked my Wendies if we could go there for breakfast the next day cause i was pretty sure that their bread with avocado would be the only thing that could cure my travel blues.
It didn't quite do that, but it helped!
And it's one of those places i don't mind going to alone when i'm in the area, which i've been A LOT in the past months due to apartment hunting, cause it's cozy even when you're by yourself, and the staff is awesome at making everyone feel at home.
The food is delicious and reasonably priced, the coffee is good, and the decor is to fucking die for.
Not kidding, i want to steal everything and put it in my future apartment.
In fact, i'm pretty sure me and the owners have all read the same decorating books, and shopped at the same flea markets, cause their interior is so... me, that i almost compulsively have to instagram it every time i'm there.
You'll find Roamers on Pannierstrasse 64 in Neukölln, about a five minute walk from Hermannplatz.
If you're a client of Conspiracy Inc., as i know some of you are, it's about twenty minutes from the studio on the U7, so it's not a bad spot to get a nice breakfast before getting tattooed.
Do let me know if you end up visiting, and if not, just enjoy the (shitty iPhone) pictures!
