(13357, Wedding)

Ana Conda am Ufer is a new café, bar, kitchen & art lab on the Panke in Berlin-Wedding, at the heart of Uferstudios community. Our kitchen is collectively governed, collaborating with several artists groups and our café serves as a multifunctional room where we host cultural formats stemming from our in house community. Different economies, desires and forms of trust circulate under the same roof. Our space is open ... to host formats by third parties, as long as they have an emphasis on community learning and/or network building. We place an emphasis on process-based formats that mediate artistic research, seeing our work closer to a dramaturgy activity rather than a curatorial one. We often use the kitchen as an expanded pedagogical/performative space where to experiment with different forms of hosting.
By request we can organize hosting formats including catering offers in collaboration with our artists/cooks community.

ACaU Café-Resto-Bar is managed by Silke Bake, Sheena McGrandles and Paz Ponce (Vorstand of neue häute e.V.), in collaboration with Ariel Orah (soydivision).

Press release


LE SLAM opens offering lunch, brunch options

Berlin, Germany, June 14 - The California Breakfast Slam, the brunch amigos who crashed the stodgy brunch parties in the German capital since 2010, reopens as a California-French-Whatever cafe restaurant. Its opening commences on the 17th of June and operates from 10 - 17h, Tuesday through Saturday.
As to accommodate to evolving tastes and, just to throw rules out the window, the base of the menu is not strictly French or Californian but the sensibilities are there. Mexican tostadas, Parisienne gnocchi, Okonomiyaki—the offerings will vary, but the same flavour nuances that captured brunch crowd for many years of the California Breakfast Slam’s years will be present. The menu offerings are friendly to meat eating, vegetarian and vegans equally without a drop off tin flavour and appeal, and as always, almost always homemade with little or zero preservatives.
The California Breakfast Slam, also known as Cabslam, began in 2011 as a weekend only pop-up in Berlin-Kreuzberg and Berlin-Neukolln. With numerous cafes at that time only offering continental cold cut breakfasts, there was a whole scene about to be born—the decadent brunch, and Cabslam was the pioneer for eggs benedict, french toast, pancakes, and hash browns—a variable list of food offerings that Berlin’s expat community (and eventually others) at that time were desperate to experience. In a 2013 wave of surging popularity, the pop-up was featured in the New York Times’ 36 Hours Berlin column as one of the 11 things to do in Berlin. In got further featured in various other periodicals: German Vogue, Conde Nast Traveler, CNN Travel, High Snobiety, featured in local periodicals such as Exberliner, Zitty, Cee Cee Berlin, Stil in Berlin, and Mit Vergnuegen, and in 2015 received recognition in the Tip as Brunch of the Year.
The setting is in the gargantuan backyard of the Uferstudios in Wedding, an industrial playground for the dance scene nestled deep within the confines of the complex adjacent to the Panke Creek.
At the moment, opening hours are only Tuesday through Saturday but will be in the coming months offering full brunch service Saturday and Sunday.

Past community kitchen collaborators

Café Müller  (Tauras Stalnionis)
Café Müller
Tauras Stalnionis is a designer interested in co-creative practices constructing performative events as take-away food experiences. Café Müller refers to 1978 Pina Bausch's performance by the same name featuring the theatre stage as a coffee shop. Similarly, this project aims at designing a stage in a real café treating eating experience as a performance. The residency at Uferstudios will act as a platform for testing different aspects of Café Müller by designing small samples and serving them for lunch to the audience.

The Kitchen Team of Ana Conda am Ufer in 2020 was a collaboration with Berlin-based gastro artists: 

Jo Vávra, Kmi, Gabriel Vallecillo (Cocina Azul Picante), Paloma García González (K.Libra).
