Cafe BilderBuch is a charming cafe in Schoenberg. The entrance does not look like much, but go to the back room and you are surrounded by old bookcases filled with books in many languages and a grand piano. At night someone will be playing the piano which adds more charm to the antiques filled cozy room. This is a place to come to hang out and talk about life with your best friend, or new friend you just met. If you like one of the books on the shelf, feel free to take it with you, but don't forget to leave one of yours behind. The spinach and mozzarella soup was delicious.
Love it or leave it!
Are you looking for fast and obliging service or for fine creative cuisine? Skip this café. Do you need an old chair to give some rest to your tired soul, a motley audience to satisfy your curiosity, an impressive piece of cheesecake to sweeten the novel you cannot tear yourself away from? Go for it!
Furniture of indeterminate age presumably from one of the Berliner flea markets, books on the shelves, relaxed atmosphere, unhurried waiters, and generally tasty food that’s what the BilderBuch is about. Occupy one of the cosily sagging down armchairs, order a cake or a breakfast (till 23.00) and relax there for ours chatting, reading, observing. My favourite breakfast – “Geschichten aus der Molkerei”: lots of different cheeses, all of them simple but fresh and a big basket with various kinds of bread.
For God’s sake don’t get frightened by their terribly looking website. The location looks much more appealing in the reality. Don’t miss the backroom; it is nicer than the front one.
If you want to just slouch around, take the weight off your feet after an afternoon of shopping, relax on comfortable sofas then this is the place.
Make your way through to the backroom. It’s has a large living room kinda feeling. You can meet your friends there and chat away all day. Or sit and read in an armchair. Work on your laptop.
It’s more about atmos. here. Bilderbuch offers drinks and food like any other cafe. Service is a bit slow echoing the relaxed atmosphere. It’s a great meeting place. I like the lounge music.
Food is average but having said that once or twice they have offer some great bakes. On those days I eat, otherwise I just take a drink and melt into the sofa whilst talking crap hours on end to friends.
There is also an outside area front and back.
A nice comfortable cafe where the wait staff, if not always super attentive, is generally friendly and will leave you alone. A nice place to sit and work or chat with a friend. Most of their food (soup, etc) is fine to good.
Congratulations BILDERBUCH, you are offically the worst serviced cafe in Berlin, possibly Germany. Its unfortunate as Bilderbuch is such a nice cafe, really nice backroom but their service is so bad and their staff are generally really unfriendly, very unhappy staff. On the last two occasions we have gone here we have waited 25 minutes and both times our orders weren’t even taken, we were completely ignored even when the staff are taking old stuff from the table, they ignore you, no eye contact at all. I really wish I could give them a raving review and we actually like the cafe a lot and have had some nice times here but the constant crap service takes its toll and they grind you down enough to leave. What Bilderbuch needs is good management and professional staff. At present they have neither.
I met a tandem partner here and I decided that I really had to have dinner. I ordered a Cauliflower, potato and scrambled egg plate. I have to say, it was enormous and extremely tasty. It had a Hollandaise sauce that was very yummy as well. The service wasn’t great but the food and the ambience were fantastic. The price for the amount of the food and the tastiness was absolutely incredible!
The interior was very comfortable and “homey” feeling. I didn’t get a chance to try one of the cakes as I was completely stuffed from all the food. It was a tad bit too salty though.
The service wasn’t great but everything else made up for it! I will definitely go back.
