Friedrichstrasse 210, Berlin, Germany

This store is known as Checkpoint Charlie because of it is just a block away from the infamous border crossing. I did not find any photos or other historical artifacts inside the store. Perhaps they were deemed unnecessary because just a block away, past the checkpoint (the guard house is still there) is the outdoor Checkpoint Gallery giving an extensive history lesson in the span of two sides of the entire block.

This store has a very unique feature, paintings (perhaps watercolors or drawings) of customers, caricature-style, with captions describing the persons and their favorite drinks.

"I coulda been a contender," were the cries softly emanating from the walls of this store. Actually, it really was a contender, but it missed out on being the first Starbucks in Germany by a mere five minutes. Perhaps somebody lost a coin toss? Still, with its stylish stone/glass staircase and expansive spaciousness, this store gives Pariser Platz a run for its money.
