"So I went to this weird brunch place this weekend..." and immediately I knew my colleague was talking about Benedict. We had both gone at separate times based on recommendations and we both had strange experiences. Perhaps it would feel different if we were tourists but being local and brunch people, Benedict was disappointing.
1. Menu: you can't really order just a dish. Almost everything is coupled into a set menu with the saddest salad ever and unlimited bread plus a mimosa or hot drink. The price is pitched to cover the mimosa so that means the price is double of what you would find anywhere else in town. I just want eggs benedict, not three baskets of bread and bits of romaine lettuce.
2. Wait time: both of us were told the wait time was an hour. I was shocked and said, "For one person???" to which the hostess then actually looked in the restaurant and brought me back. There were loads of empty tables and I had space at the bar. My colleague didn't question the wait but realized she should have probably pressed a bit more when she was seated and saw empty spots.
3. The food: it just wasn't that good. In fact, I actually convinced the people sitting next to me to not order the eggs benedict. The bread was stale toast. I ended up reconfiguring the whole dish with rolls from the bread basket and it was tolerable. The couple next to me literally ran out of space for their food. Everything was in enormous portions, like over the top portions. It was just overwhelming. My colleague had the same experience.

Things that saved it from a disaster:
1. Bartender served me instead of the regular wait staff and he was fab.
2. It's instagram-pretty.
3. Music was good.

If you're from out of town and don't know what Berlin has to offer as far as breakfast/brunch, this would seem awesome. But as I've experience Store Kitchen and Spreegold and Lagari just to name a few, I know this is not the best Berlin has to offer.
