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

Given that I only spent 24 hours in Lübeck recently, I didn’t expect to be able to visit enough places to justify a vegan guide. The centre of the city is relatively small, however, and though not all of these places with vegan options were reviewed online already, I manage to stumble upon five very worthwhile places to eat.

Lübeck Vegan Restaurants

Café Affenbrot

Near the canal, this cosy but not small café/restaurant serves organic, mostly vegetarian food.


I just had a vegan cake (which was not marked as such, but was happily pointed out to me when I asked) and tea, but they also offer a vegan breakfast and have a small vegan mains menu, consisting of five items (mostly burgers and falafel) ranging from €5 to €9.


I paid €5 for my cake and tea including tip.



Everything at this classic German döner joint is vegetarian, and just under half is vegan, though the name might lead you to believe otherwise. It is known for its generous vegan döner, which for just €3 is a perfect cheap but filling meal. Instead of döner meat, the flatbread is filled with a thick bulgar, tomato and pomegranate paste, along with lettuce and fresh mint.

Another completely vegetarian place, this one offers enormous jacket potatoes with an interesting, fresh and tasty selection of fillings. (The name is the Austro-Bavarian word for potato, literally “earth apple”.)


All the combinations of fillings can be veganised, or you can just choose your own fillings from the wide range on display.

There is no table service but very friendly and helpful service nonetheless, and one large potato with the veganised Mediterranean filling set me back €5.50.




When I asked at this cute café if there was wifi, I got a response I’d never heard before “no we don't, but that’s a great idea, isn’t it?!” No shit.


Everything on offer at this bakery and shop is organic, and when I asked, it turned out more than half the cakes were vegan, though none were marked as such.

For a large soy chai latte, slice of delicious chocolate cashew cake and very pleasant service, I paid €7.

    That cashew cake looks delicious, even if I haven’t seen the rest of their menu, I think I would have chosen the same one because I adore everything with cashews. Shame about the WiFi, it’s incredible how many places choose not to make it available to their guests, some of them say it’s to encourage conversation which is understandable, but for digital nomads like us it’s sometimes essential 🙂

      I agree. It seemed that in this place though, they just hadn’t even thought of it, which surprised me because it would be the perfect place for it.

  2. Why do we always come across these blogs on an empty stomach?!?! 🙂

    Looks like you really treated yourself to some amazing cruelty free food. We have made notes on all of these places and will visit one day.

      I’ve learnt to only read food posts from other bloggers AFTER I’ve eaten myself! Glad you enjoyed it, and hope you get to take up these recommendations some day.
