Berlin is crazy about coffee. Charming coffee shops and quality coffee are something of a staple in gritty Berlin. You can’t walk more than a few blocks without running in to a great place to day dream. One of these places especially stole my heart. Tucked away off a busy train station, is The Visit Coffee Roastery. This white-obsessed, light and airy space, is anything but busy or gritty. Step inside and see for yourself!
The Visit is located not too far from a busy train station. It makes getting there very easy, but along the way you also might wonder what you got yourself in to. The area is insanely busy, and nowhere near as nice as other parts of Berlin such as the Mitte. You make a right in to an alleyway off a busy road, which leads you through to a courtyard. Once inside, it’s bliss. It’s definitely one of those spaces that transports you.
There is a lot of seating outside to enjoy some sunshine. A lot of the wood features really remind me of Australian design, and I couldn’t be happier to see them! Wood benches and blocks as plain as they come are always cozy, and a great use of minimalism. It was a particularly hot day in Berlin, so I decided to find a seat inside.
Walking inside is a Scandinavia dream of white walls, white hardware, and white furniture. Pops of black make the entire space come together. And it’s a big space, let me tell you. There’s enough space to not have to be sat on top of one another, or bother your studying neighbor. Towards the back there is also an office and a bathroom.
The very center of the coffee shop almost has too much space. It creates somewhat of a negative space issue, which I am not a huge fan of, but it does work in this case. In general, overly large coffee shops aren’t really my thing, but The Visit has a wonderful little seating area that I fell particularly in love with.
I ordered a latte and headed on over to their ‘stairs’ seating. Tip: climb on up and then find yourself a nice little stair and white block to get cozy at. The white blocks are tables, which give off the feeling of enjoying a casual TV dinner. As I was eating, I began reflecting on the setup of block tables, as they were in set up in such a way so that each person has a direct path coming down the stairs. I ordered an avocado toast by the way, which was absolutely to die for! I was impressed with the thought that went in to it. Even alone, the concept is genius for a coffee shop.
The baristas were nice, but not too particularly chatty. I think I came at a slower time of day, because there were only a few people sitting and working on their laptops. The stairs are definitely designed for working or studying. There’s a lot of room to drop your bag and coat, and really get cozy for a few hours. Coat and coffee style.
Overall I was really happy with every aspect of The Visit. The space was really beautiful to chill out at and get some work done. Okay, I mostly edited Instagram photos. But it was definitely the break I needed from busy and gritty Berlin. The latte I had was great and the avocado toast was the cherry on top of the cake. This little Scandinavian dream near the Kreuzberg district will steal your heart, one geniusly designed Visit at a time.
