If you happen to be in Berlin and you are out for some shopping and good food, Hallesches Haus in Kreuzberg is the place to be. This unique and conceptual space opened its doors in 2015; its historical space was once a post office and features high ceilings, vaulted archways, a private courtyard, and original brickwork.

Today, the charming nostalgic space serves as a restaurant and café as well as an event space, combined with a beautiful nostalgic general store. The store is perfect to find presents for your friends and family and it offers practical, well-made goods like food, fabric, plants, lovely gifts as well as homeware and kitchen supplies. The diverse concept behind Hallesches Haus is what makes it so appealing; it functions as an open community space where one can stay for hours or just stroll through the shop for a few minutes.

“We expanded our concept to the idea of a “general store”: an emporium for practical, well-made goods, a canteen for eating delicious and comforting food, as well as a meeting place for events.”Jillian May, Oliver Cayless and Michelle Casciolo, Founders | Source: IGNANT.

It also caters as an event space for private parties, family gatherings or can be tailored to your event wishes. The restaurant is located in a large light-filled dining room, serving fresh food and drinks all day long.

The restaurant proudly works with local suppliers and uses seasonal and organic ingredients throughout its menu; you will find delicious food like freshly baked goods, sandwiches, and breakfast in the morning. It’s daily changing canteen-style menu offers healthy seasonal dishes in the daytime and wine with an organic cheese platter as well as coffee and house-made cake in the afternoon. Hallesches Haus is definitely worth a visit if you are planning your next trip to Berlin and the location serves great for shooting photos as well.
