Chipps Deluxe

Chipps deluxe menu

Chipps holds a special place in our hearts, as the first decent brunch spot we found in Berlin, and the team (also behind Cookies club and Cookies Cream restaurant) has recently extended its daytime offerings into the evening. Chipps Deluxe is a set menu of four delicious courses, presented with optional matched wines, and with or without meat – for the veggies!  It’s tough to pick our highlights from one of the most cohesive and well-rounded menus we’ve tasted in ages, as we loved everything, from the starter of two types of cauliflower with quail’s egg, beetroot and tarragon, to the delicious dessert of rhubarb mousse with strawberry-mint ragout… and chocolate popping candy! The menu changes each month, and we’ve been a little slow getting this article up(!), so we have no idea what is in store when you visit, but our advice would be this: go hungry, because the portions are surprisingly generous. Guten Appetit!

Brunch being the most important meal of the day for us, we’ve been on a quest to find the best in Berlin. Thankfully our search may be over after visiting Chipps, a recommendation from our friends at Slow Travel Berlin. The slogan “Serious Eating” raised our expectations, but we both breathed a sigh of relief stepping through the doors a few weeks ago. The place looks and smells like the kitchen of our dreams with shiny sufaces galore, wafts of freshly brewed coffee, homebaked bread and sweet sizzling bacon. The menu doesn’t disappoint, with aptly-named dishes like “Bed Head” (eggs Benedict), “The Perfect Gentleman” (Full English) and “Sugar Daddy” (pancakes with maple syrup), and you can even create your own fantasy breakfast from their “Heaven” and “Hell” section if you want to feel special. We have now vowed to go every weekend until we have tasted everything on the menu so we may be gaining some excess pounds in the next few weeks!
