Located in the Kulturbrauerei, this restaurant and club is very popular during both day and night. The open and bright dining salon is often filled with families and business people during the lunch hours. At night, things get a little rowdier as the expansive bar opens, allowing dinner guests to mingle before their meals. The club, which has its origins in the 1970s, is popular for live concerts and dance parties, and is frequented by a young and enthusiastic crowd of party goers. As if restaurant and club were not enough, the complex also has its own beer garden which is usually packed during fair weather.
Fischfabrik is a little place on Danzigerstrasse that looks and smells more like you're in Hamburg by the harbor, rather than in the heart of Berlin. The cooks are truly dedicated to fish and seafood and managed to bring fresh fish at a reasonable price to Prenzlauer Berg. There are also a few places to sit and eat and the atmosphere is more one of a kitchen, but most of their menus and meals are offered for take-away or can be delivered. Depending on what kind of fresh fish they can get on the market, the offers change almost daily. - John Luas

Located on Kollwitzplatz, Berlin's trendy gastronomic and nightlife hot spot, Gugelhof shot to fame when German Chancellor Schröder took U.S. President Clinton out to dinner here. Although it has only been around since the mid 1990s, it is one of the most popular culinary institutions in town. The hot and hearty meals make this a particularly good place to come in the winter, but it is not recommended for calorie-counters. The summer terrace is perfect for a relaxing brunch. The evening menu includes classic dishes from the Swiss-French-German border region.

There are more galleries and cafés in Prenzlauer Berg than food stores. But as art and coffee aren't exactly filling, a couple of bright young Berliners decided that the time had come for the ultimate food store. Ostkost ("Eastern Foods"), offers nostalgic products from the long-forgotten East German era as well as high-quality and less expensive items from today's East. These products used to be sold on every street corner in East Berlin, yet were rapidly replaced by Western goods after the fall of the Wall. But now they're back! In the small store next door to the wacky furniture shop, you'll find everything from genuine East German bread rolls to sausages from Rostock and mustard from Bautzen.
