“The refectory has just become extinct.” Words to this effect could very well pass through your mind when you stand in front of the Albert-Speisemanufaktur. Next to the Albert café and bistro at Albert-Einstein-Straße 4, the Albert Speisemanufaktur offers quite particular culinary highlights at Johann-Hittorf-Straße 8, in the Centre for Photovoltaics and Renewable Energies (ZPV).

Looking up the word “Manufaktur” tells us that this is a place where everything is made by hand. “manus” is Latin for hand, “facere” for making. And this is exactly how the Leibiks describe their own handcraft. “Quality, diversity, and freshness. As a handcrafter of food, we want to translate our love for this craft into a good feeling that fills our guests when they eat our meals.” The expression “Manufaktur” was therefore chosen deliberately. “We attach great importance to authentic, varied cuisine with fresh produce,” replied Jacqueline Leibik when asked to describe her concept.

Here, behind huge windows extending from the floor to the ceiling and looking out over a spectacular Guggenheim spiral staircase and an atrium flooded with light, Jacqueline and Thomas Leibik’s team serve a wide range of breakfast choices from as early as eight in the morning, and, from eleven, three lunch courses that change every day. Meat, vegetarian, and vegan, also diverse, freshly prepared tarte flambée à la minute arrive on the table. In addition, a salad buffet, desserts, and freshly squeezed orange juices or smoothies. A Brandenburg bakehouse delivers the extensive range of cakes for the diverse coffee specialities.

The team ist following the same philosophy with its catering service. And even though business catering may account for most of the activities at Alberts the spectacular interior is increasingly popular with privat functions, too. The Leibik family are unanimous: “We like being at this location where something new is created every day. It suits us, and we’re happy to be a part of it.”
