Two and Two in Berlin

August 31, 2015

Today I’ve got another gem for you. Two and Two in Berlin is a coffee shop also selling stationery. How cool and innovative is that?

The story is that two friends (Eri and Tose), one from Paris the other from Tokyo met over a cup of coffee and ended up opening their own little venture together.

Both fairly inexperienced in this, they ventured and found this little spot in Neukölln and created a real labour of love. The sign here below alerts you to their matcha latte, home-made chai latte and stationery from Japan. Not the kind of combo you see everyday. Oh, and they also have free WiFi.

The french/japanese signature is felt throughout. You’ll find french cakes and pastries like freshly baked Madeleines, and japanese treats like Korumi Kokuto.

They’re well known for their extensive menu of hot drinks and this place has quickly become a favourite in the neighbourhood.

Of course, I was instantly smitten with the stationery. What better way to spend a creative afternoon than by combining a nice cup of hot drink and buying a notebook and pen to write down the next big idea.

The place looks rather small from outside. Once inside you’ll find a big room at the back with plants, comfortable seating and a mini library filled with books and magazines. It really is the place to hang out and maybe even do some work.

A true gem and one I will return to over and over again. Care to join me for a cuppa?

Here Tose tells the story of how they met and opened Two and Two.

      It’s such a quaint and beautiful place & concept. A true find that I just stumbled across while looking for something else:-)

    Oh Tina. I am loving these spaces! Your images and words make me want to hop on a plane with O and hang out with you in Berlin! Do they have baby Vespa seats? haha! One day we will be back in Germany and we can experience the real cafe culture. Have a wonderful day! Jocelyn xx

      Oh, c’mon, let’s meet in Berlin with the little man!!!!
      Hahaha, not sure I want to take O on a Vespa. I just want to cuddle and kiss him for a whole hour… oh, what joy. I think my heart will explode when I finally meet him.

      I’d love you to move back to Germany so you’re closer. xx
