Brunch & Coffee
Chef, Sean Duff, has put together a seasonal brunch menu which is out of the ordinary. This menu centres upon quality ingredients from local producers such as organic eggs from local farm Eiland Grimme or sourdough bread baked by Kreuzberg’s Sironi. The menu provides either a fantastic lunch or breakfast items until 16:00 daily.
Commonground’s coffee programme uses coffee from local coffee roaster, Fjord Coffee Roasters. Lightly roasted, specialty-grade coffee that far exceeds the economic support of Fair Trade coffee is used at Commonground, giving the farmer of the coffee not only a ‘better deal’ but also a chance to represent their work in creating a fantastic high quality product.
Tapas & Cocktails
In the evening, Commonground transforms into a craft cocktail bar headed by Yvonne Rahm & Damien Guichard. Find a small but articulate seasonal menu of drinks, as well as classics – with many bitters, syrups and liqueurs made in-house. Expertly made drinks are complemented by a range of approachable craft beers and natural wines.
Commonground’s tapas menu is designed to excite by taking something simple and making it far exceed your expectations. Enjoy it either as something to nibble on with a drink or take a few items to become a light dinner. Deliciousness awaits.
As we don’t like to stand still, the Circus has been busy the last couple of months. We re-designed our whole ground floor area, creating more space for our guests to hang, relax, have a drink, enjoy one of the best coffees in Berlin and…explore the city like a pro!
With more space to meet guests and Berliners alike, we also put together a new concept to introduce our favourite city to you: Berlin behind the Curtain!

From street food to art galleries and from performances to the film industry, we want to take you behind the scenes, to open doors that would otherwise be closed… to give you a peek behind the curtain!
