We couldn’t help but smile when we found about this place. HAPPY BARISTAS COFFEE SHOP is a great name for a coffee place. Little did we know that we were also about to keep smiling as we tried their amazing coffee and food options. Located in an up and coming part of Friedrichshain (just off Ostbahnhof), it is super easy to get here. Just hop on the S-Bahn to Ostbahnhof and walk for about 5 minutes.
HAPPY BARISTAS COFFEE SHOP is a relatively new addition to Berlin’s amazing Craft Coffee scene and we must say, an amazing one. First off, service is super friendly and yes, the baristas are truly happy! ; ) The craft coffee drinks are prepared with care and the quality is top notch. They serve roasts from multiple roasters from all over the world. We still haven’t tried the savory dishes, however, the cookies and cakes were also very good. They claim to offer a seasonal food menu that changes constantly so it makes no sense for us to recommend a specific offering.
Not only does Happy Baristas rank high on the coffee front, but it also has a very interesting and cool style and design concept. We particularly love the El Bocho (a Berlin institution) art in the back of the coffee shop. The sink (in the middle of the shop) with the plants around it is also super interesting.
If you would like to explore the area after or before your coffee we recommend you walk towards Boxhagener Platz and pop in and out of the super soulful little stores along Boxhagener Strasse. If time allows explore the side streets as well. If you are feeling more adventurous walk towards Revalerstrasse and find a world of street art, cool clubs and bars on number 99 (aka RAW). Also check out Urban Spree, one of our favorite urban art spaces in town.
