Mogg & Melzer

11-13 Auguststrasse

Pastrami sandwiches are suddenly the rage in some Berlin foodie circles and you’ll find that the preserved deli meat has a starring role at the chic café Mogg & Melzer, which, like the Pauly Saal, is located in the newly revived Jewish Girls’ School. The pastrami is made by hand on the premises, then loaded into sandwiches or served as a salad. The arty international crowd at this intimate spot befits the proprietors: a DJ-turned-chef and a nightlife promoter. Mogg & Melzer is popular for lunch but it’s also a nice place to grab dinner before a Mitte art crawl. Insider tip: When the weather warms up, ask about the rooftop table where you can take your to-go pastrami sandwich and have a rare view over Berlin’s beautiful Neue Synagoge Oranienburger.
