The original Tres Cabezas location, the 19grams on Boxhagener Strasse has an undisputed cult status. Everyone from the neighbourhood has had a flat white or an espresso here. The café opened in 2002 and has been an integral part of the history of Friedrichshain’s famous Boxhagener Platz ever since. It’s as colourful as Friedrichshain itself, and is not only the best place for coffee in the area, but also serves freshly baked sweets, pastries and cakes from the 19grams bakery which it houses.
Once upon a time, the 19grams roastery was located here at Boxi, but it didn’t take long until we outgrew it and moved our roasting operations to Alex. That gave the café and bakery some space to spread out, and Boxi has since become a favourite among locals for a quick coffee break or to meet friends for a sweet treat. Of course, you can still get the goods from the roastery here: our skilled baristas will be delighted to serve you a bloody good coffee that’ll leave a smile on your face, and can guide you through our colourful shelves of beans to find the perfect roast for you.
We also have free Wi-Fi at Boxi, so it can become your new office – only during the week ;) Since May, we’ve been serving our summer menu in all our cafés, meaning you can enjoy our famous brunch at Boxi too: Heirloom tomatoes on toast with edamame purée, gravlax on rye bread, or our rueben sandwich. Check out the menu and plan your visit to the café.
