I used to love Berlin a lot but since I left it and moved to a dreamlike cutest little city in South Germany I don’t miss it too much. I don’t miss it until I come to visit it and discover treasures like Meyan. This little cafe opened recently (guys, why didn’t you open it two years ago as I lived just around the corner???) in a street where every second entrance leads you to a nice bar, cafe or a restaurant. Still if I would walk down this street now and then I would go there and only there.Imagine the combination of three factors: LOVE, TASTE and CREATIVITY, and you get an approximate description of Meyan, which means liquorice by the way. LOVE stands for the interior design, delicately oriental and elegantly urban at the same time. You can’t oversee that every single thing has been selected, no chosen with love. There is something old, and something new, and something handmade, all together creating an absolute harmony. East meets West, personal meets urban, vintage meets modern. TASTE stands for the yummy food, so fine and spicy at the same time, accompanied by a black tea in narrow-waisted Turk glasses or a nice glass of wine. CREATIVITY comes from people that run the place, open, friendly and authentic. You come in, you greet them, you chat, you feel welcome…What can I say more? Just go there and see for yourself. And if you like it as much as I do, you can take one little bit of Meyan home: jus buy there a colourful oriental bowl or a handmade soap. The second would support a women project in Turkey.
