Opened in the summer of 2010 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn by Motoko Watanabe and Shaul Margulies, House of Small Wonder (HOSW) soon became a popular place for breakfast, lunch and all day brunch and pastries.
The new branch in Berlin has opened in December 2014 and is located on the quiet Johannisstrasse, just off the bustling Friedrichstrasse. It has a very similar warm light atmosphere, lots of wood, lots of plants. The culinary concept follows the footsteps of its Brooklyn location and has numerous Japanese influences: comfort food with organic, local ingredients, freshly prepared with Japanese flavors whenever possible. Homemade bread, croissants (butter, almond) and pastries are all freshly baked throughout the day.
Why the name House of Small Wonder? Because everyday life is not about the big wonders, its about the small wonders that make things just a little more pleasant. Outside lies the heart of Berlin, inside there awaits a relaxed greenhouse atmosphere, bringing a summer feeling bathed with light into the city.
