Vegan Berlin | Best Restaurants, Food Tours, Hotels & More

It still amazes me sometimes how easy eating vegan is in Berlin. Looking for vegan Mexican food? Done. Great vegan pizza? Piece of cake. High-end gourmet vegan food? Easy peasy. Vegan cafes with wifi? You’d have to actively try avoiding them. You can even find about a dozen places n the city offering vegan brunch at least one day a week. So if there was anyone out there that still thought that eating vegan meant just salads, smoothies and lentils, they clearly haven’t been to Berlin. Being vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out delicous food. If you find yourself in Berlin craving vegan, fear not. Of course, there are plenty of options. This guide to the best vegan food in Berlin even includes places where you can order, pay and quickly be fed for those times when you need something quick and satisfying.

Berlin Vegan Cafes & Restaurants

Vöner (Fast Food)

Döner kebabs, a staple of German fast food (which were actually invented in Germany by a Turkish immigrant in the 1970s) are available in their original meat versions all over Germany, but a few vegan versions are popping up too. Vöner serves no doubt the best of these, using all organic ingredients. They serve the traditional style vöner in bread, heaped with salad and a choice of homemade sauce (the garlic-tahini is a favourite of mine), or on a plate accompanied by chips and salad. They also have a couple of burgers. Everything is vegan.

Yoyo Foodworld (Fast Food)

This 100% vegan fast food place offers a large selection of vegan burgers as well as some wraps, pizzas and a few desserts, probably for the lowest prices in the city. Chips are thin and crispy and burgers are loaded with sauce, though there is communal ketchup to add to your plate if you need more. The location has an anarchist vibe and the walls are plastered with vegan propaganda. Keep an ear out for your order, especially if you’re sitting outside as the staff will not come out to bring it to you.

L'Herbivore (Fast Food)

With a very minimal interior, this place is a vegan meat substitute supplier first and a restaurant second. Their patties are pretty simple, but they serve them with a nice range of dressings, salad and cheeses. There aren't so many options on the menu, and they don't seem to serve fries, but their burgers are large and satisfying.


Details: Foursquare; Facebook; Website; Petersburgerstrasse 38, 10249 Berlin

There are a few other places which are not strictly vegan or vegetarian (that is, they serve mostly meat), but which have a couple of good vegan burgers, including Lillyburger (Urbanstrasse 70, 10967), Hans im Glück (a chain all over Germany), Schillerburger (a Berlin chain, with its flagship burger joint at Herrfurthstrasse 7, 12049).


Note: brunch, especially on Sundays, is a big deal in Berlin and many places either require a reservation a couple of days ahead of time or for you to arrive when they open to ensure getting a table. All prices quoted are for all-you-can-eat but do not include drinks, as is usual in all kinds of brunch places in the city.

Café Vux (Brunch)

Inside this quiet, minimalist, Portuguese inspired space with tastefully mismatching furniture, you can get delightfully decadent vegan cream cakes and generous drinks.


On Sundays it is transformed into a bustling brunch place with a range of mostly cold dishes laid out beautifully on a smallish table.

Everything is well labeled, and most things are savoury, with a selection of interesting salads (mostly made with whole foods, though there are a few imitation meats and cheeses), homemade spreads and breads.


When it comes to sweet stuff, there isn’t as much selection, but there are generous plates of fresh fruits as well as coconut rice pudding, brownies and homemade jam.


Staff take care to replace empty dishes and since they are not too big, the food remains fresh and doesn’t end up sitting out for hours.

Best if…you are craving a wholesome, filling brunch without too many processed foods.

Kopps (Brunch)

While this is undoubtedly the most high end place serving vegan buffet brunch, the price is no higher than other options, making a weekend morning the best time to eat at Kopps.


The spread is large and well stocked, featuring roasted vegetables, and array of fresh and innovative salads and spreads. They also have one of the best tofu scrambles I’ve had, and offer a large selection of vegan cheeses and meats which are such good imitations that we had to double check it was in fact vegan (it is!).


There is also soup, curries and fresh bread. The sweet options include mini pancakes, fluffy mouses, brownies and fruit sauces.


Best if…you want a experience a typical German buffet brunch, but with vegan substitutes.

Playing With Eels (Brunch)

The interior of this vegetarian café-cum-bookshop is minimal but bright and cosy and also functions as a gallery with private viewings of art that changes frequently but stays up while the café is open. 90% of everything on the regular menu is actually vegan.


On Saturdays, the place fills up quickly for the all vegan brunch buffet which is spread out over a large table and is frequently tended to by staff. Most of the food is savoury, with a wide range of hot and cold dishes, spreads, salads, tofu, fresh bread and other baked goods.

Pêle-Mêle (Cafe)


inside Pêle-Mêle

We've visited this 100% vegan place many times, and on weekday mornings it was wonderfully calm, making it a perfect place to get some work done, and the wifi cooperates perfectly (though the password changes weekly). The bagels, with their wide section of vegan fillings were very good as were the cakes. The lunch offerings are served in generous portions and the staff is friendly and relaxed. They now have a loyalty card so after you've bought 10 coffees and get a stamp each time, you'll get one free.

Let It Be (Cafe)letitbe1

A vegan creperie and burger bar, this place still has the feel of a regular cafe but offers somethings slightly different. Crepes, sandwiches and burgers are named after famous people – I had the Daryl Hannah (sundried tomatoes, “mozzarella”, arugula, pesto) and Zab had the Alicia Silverstone (chocolate cream and banana) – and they serve as a filling afternoon snack or light meal. They also have delicious cake.

No Milk Today (Cafe)

A fully vegan café in a nice location, this place serves breakfasts, lunches, snacks and a wide array of cakes, including gluten free options. They also offer an interesting selection of smoothies and have decent wifi. Seating near the front is probably best for laptop working, while at the back are more comfy chairs and low tables.

Laauma (Restaurant)

The interior design is unique, with much of it made from upcycled crates and miscellaneous pieces of wood. There is a book exchange, they offer a catering service that can be delivered by bicycle and much of the seating is communal. If you're looking for a laid-back and stylish but unpretentious vegan place in Berlin, Laauma comes highly recommended. The selection of sweet food is also very good, including a raw chocolate mouse and various kinds of cake. Try a variety of dishes like salads, quiches and bruschetta. They also serve vegan versions of traditional German food.

Lucky Leek (Gourmet Restaurant)

Situated in Kollwitzkiez, itself one of the first parts of Berlin to undergo gentrification, the Lucky Leek certainly fits in well with the area. The food menu does not require extensive reading to come to a decision: either you choose from the daily specials or you go for the five-course set menu. You can also order individual items from the menu, but given that the main course is €15.90 alone, and the set menu is €45 for five courses, it is more economical option to try a range of food.


Start with the appetiser of caramelised onion inside a pastry with sesame seeds and topped with a dollop of vegan herb creme. Later courses may include a salad with mango and passionfruit dressing served with chill marinated tofu and sweet and sour cucumber. The menu changes periodically but you might also be lucky to try the vegetable broth with raw courgette, garnished with basil. For mains, you should try asparagus risotto with edamame beans, radish sauce, cabbage and spinach balls. Definitely not skip out on dessert. You can expect a mouthwatering treat like the caramel almond layer cake served with a scoop of smooth papaya carrot sorbet, garnished with a mango sauce, physalis, edible spoon and delightfully dark chocolate biscuit.




  • The set five course menu described here is €45 per person, and with two drinks, a tea and tip, we paid €110 in total
  • Open: Wednesday-Sunday from 18:00
  • Address: Kollwitzstrasse 54, 10405, Berlin
