House of Small Wander Berlin

First off, if there's one thing I have to say about House of Small Wonder, it's that this place is TOTALLY plant-goals.  Instagrammers are in love with this spiral staircase... and after you soak in the beauty of the ambiance the moment you walk through the door, it's pretty easy to see why.  Whoever designed this place definitely knew how to attract Instagrammers.

Here I am obsessing over the plants.

After ogling over the plants, I walked upstairs and got myself a cappuccino while deciding what to order.

After much thought, instead of going for the traditional brunch stuff you normally see on every menu, we decided to go the more Japanese route.  I'm a little embarrassed to admit I've haven't been to the location in Brooklyn (yet), but hey, at least I made it to House of Small Wonder in Berlin!  I've been seeing this place all over Instagram and I can't even explain how excited I was for this visit.  On the table we have onigiri rice balls with miso and purple shiso and soboro don with a side of coffee and genmaicha.  If I have to be completely honest, the coffee was good, but the food was average. Nothing bad, but nothing amazing either.  I can't say how good the traditional brunch menu is.  Maybe we should have gotten 50/50 on brunch and Japanese dishes.  Oh well, next time we'll know.  Anyways, the interior, decor and ambiance is amazing. It's like being inside a giant plant filled dollhouse - a perfect spot for a date or coffee with friends filled with endless photo opportunities.  This place is definitely worth a visit for the gram, but if you're a foodie, there are a lot of yummier places to check out in Berlin.
