We have a confession to make: we often choose our brunch spots based on their names (case in point: Suicide Sue). Since we love our aunts, a place called „Aunt Benny“ naturally appealed to us. And we’re happy to report that „Benny“ (who’s not an actual person as far as we know..) is now just as beloved as our bloodrelated aunts.
Aunt Benny is a good place for brunch. It’s a compact and cosy space with small green wooden tables and one big wooden table for groups, families or friendly strangers. The menu is written on a dark wall panel that hangs above the display counter. It’s self service, so don’t be shy and just stand in line and order your food.
We went for the weekend brunches, one veggie and one vegan, which were both a delight. With no less than 7 (!!) types of cheese, 4 sorts of bread including an olive one, onion jam, dried tomatoes, artichoke, olives and loads more – we were all ready to explode. All this, for a very reasonable 8 Euros per brunch.
The button line: You made us smile, Aunt Benny. We’ll come to visit again soon
The plate test: we left behind squeakyclean plates
Crowd: young, social and Friedrichshainstyle hipsters. Full at all times
Soundtrack: too noisy to hear
Kids: Yes. Yes
Service: Up to you. Self service
Price: 8 Euro for the weekend brunch
