Vegan Eats | Berlin: vegan capital of Europe

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

Berlin is a great place for a trip for many reasons - laid back vibes, friendly people, culture, budget friendliness... and vegan food. Germany's capital has been named the Vegan capital of Europe more than once and not for no reason. Every time I get to spend a couple of days in Berlin (bless being able to stay with friends there!), I like to eat my way through the city and even though I love finding places to go to in advance and planning my food stops, I know that I can turn a corner here or stand in the middle of the city there and consult Happy Cow and I will always find tasty vegan food not far away. Here are a a couple of places I ate at this time - some newly discovered, some old favourites... too good not to share either way!

Pêle-Mêle [Neukölln]
Top notch place to brunch or have a slice of cake and coffee served in a mug the size of your head. Cosy interior, lovely staff and the café is advertised as a co-working space as well - perfect for all those digital nomads/bloggers/students/can't-work-at-home-people.

Innstrasse 26
12043 Berlin

Soya Vietnamese Vegan Kitchen [Kreuzberg]
Vietnamese restaurant offering an almost entirely vegan menu (only non-vegan item is condensed milk for traditional Vietnamese coffee). Lots of tofu dishes as well as mock meats; "chicken", "duck", "fake fish"...

Falckensteinstrasse 36
10997 Berlin

Yoyo Foodworld [Friedrichshain]
Perfect spot for some budget friendly vegan fast food like pizza, burgers and vegan fried calamari (!!). Simple interior, outside seating, situated in the hip neighbourhood Friedrichshain.

Gärtnerstrasse 27
10245 Berlin

Vegan Snackbar by Attila Hildmann [Charlottenburg]
German author of several cookbooks and my first inspiration to go vegan almost 4 years ago Attila Hildmann finally opened his first restaurant back in May. The place to be when you're looking for mouth watering burgers, pasta dishes with homemade sauces, matcha soft swerve, açaí bowls or healthy energy drinks. Slightly more expensive than your typical Berlin food place but well worth the price considering everything is freshly made, high quality and organic. You even get to chat to the owner himself as he's there most days of the week.

Schillerstrasse 71
10627 Berlin

Café Vux [Neukölln]
Brazilian café, entirely vegan, selling everything from paninis to cakes and waffles, including vegan versions of traditional Brazilian foods. Weekly Sunday brunch from 12 onwards (be on time!) for 9.50€ excluding drinks. Beautiful interior with small outside space.

Wipperstrasse 14
12055 Berlin

Superfoods & Organic Liquids [Mitte]
Drop by for bowls full of health, sweet pick-me-ups (about half are vegan), freshly made smoothies and filling açaí bowls. Comfortable and light interior, comfortable outside seating area, free infused water.

Weinbergsweg 23
10119 Berlin

Vöner [Friedrichshain]
All vegan place to get typical Berlin dishes like Döner (kebab) and Currywurst. Very affordable, extremely filling and not far from Veganz - the entirely vegan supermarket of your dreams.

Boxhagenerstrasse 56
10245 Berlin

Paletas Berlin [Friedrichshain]
Ice popsicle store just around the corner from Yoyo Foodworld, offering a wide range of vegan ice popsicle flavours ranging from fruity (mango, raspberry, ...) to creamy (chocolate, coffee, ...). Get it dipped in dark chocolate and your choice of nuts and you're ready to Instagram that beauty (before devouring it).

Wühlischstrasse 26
