A Vegan Guide for Berlin

With a couple of brand new, awesome vegan restaurants and cafes that opened in Berlin recently we thought it was about time to put together a new vegan guide for Berlin. Veganism is probably the biggest “trend” in gastronomy right now, though it is inaccurate to consider it a trend, I like to call it an “awakening”. I think with all the information we have nowadays about industrially produced food and its effect on the eco system and on our health it is only a natural reaction that people start to change their consumption and eating habits. I personally really like vegan cooking, mainly because it requires a certain creativity that makes us break out of our decade long food habits of what goes with what and how you prepare certain things. Vegan dishes, no matter if they are simple or elaborate, open up another world of taste experiences and I think that’s really exciting for everyone’s palate. Enjoy our selection of the most interesting vegan restaurants and cafes in Berlin.

Brammibal’s Donuts

Brammibal’s vegan donuts have been a big hit on street food markets and are now also available in their own cafe that opened last weekend with a lot of fanfare. In the world of bakery goods and sweets the concept of veganism is a little under the radar because naturally this kind of food is without any meet and cheese and the animal products are mostly invisible. But of course in the typical pastries there is butter and other dairy products, so obviously not vegan. Not so the delicious and cute donuts of Brammibal. Have a bite!

Lab Kitchen

The Lab Kitchen is also a quite new place and it’s located inside the Runbase Berlin. Naturally it’s all about healthy eating in this environment, so don’t expect any white flower or processed sugar here in your food. Raw food specialist Lisa Müller is the creative behind this place and she knows what she’s doing which is tasty and healthy plant-based dishes with local organic ingredients and superfoods. And yes, this can also be a burger with (sweet potato) fries.

Lucky Leek

If you are looking for more than just cafe snacks and diner fast food Lucky Leek is your kind of place. The restaurant is specialized in elaborate vegan dinner menus and they are serving them quite masterfully. It’s a great example of how vegan food can be so much more than “just the salad” or “two sides” and if you want you taste buds to experience something really different and amazing, you should come here.

The Bowl

The Bowl is again a more simple approach to vegan eating. It belongs to the successful take-away chain goodies and the veganz supermarkets and extends their program with a bright and modern Bio-certified restaurant. Their dishes are what the name already suggests some yummy vegan ingredients cleverly combined and tossed together in a bowl, completely free of gluten and sugar. It can be really that simple and people are loving it.

Daluma in Mitte has made quite the name for itself within a short amount of time with their raw foods and cold-pressed juices. They are all about that healthy lifestyle so expect a lot of the latest food trends and superfoods.

Kopps

Kopps is pretty much a classic when it comes to vegan restaurants in Berlin. Since 2011 they are successfully serving their clever 2-4 course menus that are created from locally sources, healthy ingredients of bio certified quality. On the weekends you can also enjoy a big brunch buffet until 16h. Can’t go wrong here.

Kanaan

So here comes the trifecta that is Kanaan, the most hyped place at the moment thanks to the fact that hummus is owning the world right now. I love hummus. They have not one, not two, but THREE relatively new places. They took over the Pizza Hütte (my beloved Pizza joint in P’berg) at Kopenhagener Straße and the cafe across and turned them into a take-away and restaurant where they serve the amazing hummus (tried it, it really is that good) and other Israeli and Palestinian (yes you read that right, what a peace project!) dishes. They also have a brand new express restaurant in Kreuzberg.

Kanaan Express & Restaurant, Kopenhagener Straße 16, 10437 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg

Express (Hütte) open Mon-Fri 12-16h, Restaurant (Kohlenquelle) open Sat-Sun 12-22h, Tel: +49 176 22586673

The charming restaurant serves sophisticated high-end vegetarian and vegan delights, each with distinct flavors, ingredients, and creative presentations.

Surprise your taste buds with the “Erykah Badu” crêpe – all dishes are named after celebrities – or the “Omar Rodriguez-Lopez” burger!

    Black Sheep cafe as well! It has speciality coffee, kombucha and kefir – Bouchestr 15, Alt-Treptow.

  2. Allan Says:

    Cookies Cream does not even have one vegan wine on offer. It is a vegetarian restaurant that can make a limited number of its menu items vegan friendly. There are far better, totally vegan rastaurants in Berlin, to enjoy before this vegetarian one.

  3. Frank Frank Says:

    Thanks for clarifying this. We will make some edits. And of course there are more vegan restaurants in Berlin, we’d be interested to see which other ones our readers like.
