The name doesn't necessarily say it all. Because at Cookies Cream you can expect not only sweet sins, but also experimental vegetable cuisine at the highest level. Since its founding in 2007, the restaurant has become a hotspot in the capital. And we know why!

The restaurant owes its name to its founder, “Cookie” Heinz Gindullis . He has been a big name in Berlin's catering industry since he founded the legendary Cookies club in 1994, which shaped the city's nightlife for over 20 years. In 2007 he opened the very successfulCookies Cream under the direction of chef Stephan Hentschel - it has now been awarded over 16 Gault-Millau points and has had one star from the Michelin Guide since 2018. It is the pure, yet risk-taking vegetarian cuisine that delights guests and critics alike. The goal is to give guests a completely new experience of vegetarian food. We think the goal has been achieved!

Urban cosiness

The extraordinary experience doesn't just start with the menu and the exquisite wine list, but rather with searching and finding the location. Because you can only reach it via a hidden entrance in the backyard of Behrenstrasse in Berlin Mitte - past the garbage cans of the Komischer Oper and Westin Grand Hotel. The interior is modern and loft-like : urban concrete walls and cozy benches in raspberry red, an open kitchen provides a clear view of the preparation of the dishes.

I wanted to create a place where my friends would feel comfortable - create an environment and service in which a good mood and a relaxed atmosphere would arise naturally. For us, the focus was not on vegetarianism, but on the beautiful experience and the quality of the food. (Heinz Gindullis)

The pure authenticity of the dishes in Cookies Cream is underlined by the matching table service - and of course that comes from KPM. In 1931, Trude Petri was inspired to create the URBINO collection by the flagless ceramic plates of the Italian Renaissance. As utilitarian porcelain without decorations or frills, it completely meets the requirements of form and function. It is not without reason that URBINO made it to the MoMA in New York thanks to its exceptionally good design. It is complemented by the similarly clean URANIA collection, whose feature is the striking separation between mirror and flag. Reduced to the essentials, it is perfect for showcasing the honest delicacies of Cookies Cream... Have you already reserved your table?
