Café Berlin has been serving authentic German and traditional cuisine on Capitol Hill since 1985. It occupies the ground floor of three townhouses whose front yards serve as patio for outdoor dining. The interior features a small bar and two cozy dining rooms. The restaurant is located within a short walking distance of Union Station and the U.S. Capitol. It draws politicians, congressional staffer, and tourists as well a loyal following of neighborhood residents. The traditional dishes are authentically prepared with lighter touch by chefs with extensive experience in German cuisine. In addition to the regular menu, the restaurant offer seasonally changing menus that feature fresh asparagus in the spring, salads and light fares in the summer, Bavarian dishes during Oktoberfest in the fall, and wild game in the winter. Desserts which are freshly made in-house include apple strudel, black forest cake, and luscious cream tortes. The bar offers a selection of imported German beers.

"I checked this online before a recent trip to DC and was not disappointed! The best German food in many a time. Best red cabbage, best sauerbraten. Incredible selection - the chef is a gem. Great choice of imported beers, wines and schnapps! Michaela was welcoming, charming and entirely delightful. She made us feel right at home as we sought refuge in the downpour following a hockey game. Gemütlich and cozy atmosphere. Recommend making reservations, but they are open almost all day. We cannot wait to return. Hoffentlich bald! Daniela"
