Situated next-door to the Staatsoper unter den Linden , the Opernpalais, built in 1733-1737 by F.W.Diterichs, is connected to the older Kronprinzenpalais by an arched bridge. As the city residence of Friedrich III's three daughters, the building was long referred to as the "Princess' Palace." Nowadays, it is home to a cafe, which provides a rare opportunity to enjoy 19th Century-style luxuries in modern day Berlin. The traditional coffee and cakes, as well as the decor complete with brass fittings and oil paintings, all serve to add to the regal, old-world charm of the cafe. The patio garden makes this a particularly popular destination in the summer.
Very nice place but the waitresses can be very rude and unpolite if you ask for the change that they didn't give you... We were waiting for the change (5€) and it never came. We thought that it had been a mistake but when we asked and we saw the waitress reaction we realized that she just wanted to keep that money. I had never seen such a rude person... So if you go there, mind your change and don't trust the waitresses!!!
