If you love all things British or are interested in meeting new people or just want to have a piece of really good cake – the café “England, England” is exactly what you’re looking for.
The small café in the middle of Dresden Neustadt is a haven for everyone loving the British culture. You can have a cup of excellent tea, browse through books (which you can also buy) and try some culinary classics. But the “England, England” is more than just a cosy little place to indulge your sweet tooth. It’s also a place to meet new people during interesting events such as the book club or presentations and talks of the “Deutsch-Britische-Gesellschaft Dresden e.V.” or movie nights.
Just take the book club: About every two months – depending on the length of the book – people from all over the world meet and discuss the recently read book. There are always new members joining the regulars, so don’t worry about spontaneously dropping in. You can find the announcement, which book will be the focus of the club’s discussions, on the café’s website, their Facebook page or in their shop window.
As the England, England is a very popular place for internationals and locals, you should phone them a few days prior to your visit to make reservations (they speak both English and German) – especially for weekend visits or if you plan to go there with a group of friends. But this effort is definitely worth it!
One last recommendation: While everything on their menu is delicious, their Traditional English Breakfast – which is only served on Sundays – is absolutely outstanding! Give it a try!
How to get there: TRAM 13, “Görlitzer Straße” stop or TRAM 6, 11, 13, “Bautzner Straße / Rothenburger Straße” stop. Afterwards, a short walk towards “Martin Luther Straße” and you’ll find the café opposite the church. Find directions here: goo.gl/maps/RehoCBwzBq52
