Berlin Vegan

NYE in Berlin

We decided to go on a short trip over NYE. Our original thought was Amsterdam but oh my it is expensive over the holidays! Berlin is a great place for a vegan adventure, as most of you probably already know. It’s a bottomless pit of the most delicious vegan food. The city is massive and there are nearly too many things to experience. Berlin is a trip I regularly have to make, but due to the size it always feels a bit strange to me.

These are the cafés and restaurants we went to and liked (in the order we went there):

Umami

Hip indochinese place in Kreuzberg (there’s another one in Prenzlauer Berg). The menu is divided between meat and vegetarian dishes, with most of the vegetarian dishes being vegan already. The restaurant itself is very cozy and nicely furnished. Most of the main dishes are around 7 to 8 Euros, the bottle of wine was 18 Euros if I remember correctly. The food was great by the way, and the portion sizes are perfect.

It is a busy place, so make sure to make reservations. When we left the restaurant there was a big queue forming outside the restaurant. I can totally understand why!

The Barn Roastery

THE place for third wave coffee in Berlin. There a three locations in Berlin. We chose to go to the Roastery, where all their beans are roasted and shipped, not far from Alexanderplatz. It’s a big, bright and modern place, with a long row of seats at the huge windows. The owners bow to the new trend to have a wifi and laptop free space. Furthermore you’re not allowed to bring in noisy children, strollers, or your dog. The perfect spot for the child- and pet-less hipster.

I usually prefer to go to coffee shops with less rules (and wifi, gotta have Instagram, right?), but the coffee is seriously just too good. I tried two of their drip coffees, one of which I liked immensely. They just offer a few different types at a time, and they can be ordered in up to three different brews. When you give your order they will write down your name and call you when you’re up. Then you’ll get an explanation about the way the brew works, the flavour of your coffee and how best to drink it.

Sadly they don’t offer any plant-based milk, but actually it would be a shame to have that coffee with milk anyways. Nevertheless, they do offer a vegan carrot muffin, which is truly delicious. The price of the coffee ranges between 4,50 and 5 Euro for one brew, definitely on the higher end. They also offer a nice range of tea.

Let It Be

We were on the way to a different place down the same street when we had to realize that it’s sadly closed. So I started the good old Happy Cow app and quickly found this little gem just a few meters further. And oh my how lucky we were. Let It Be is a small vegan crêperie and burger bar – and it is awesome! It’s a colourful, busy and fun place, with a great menu.

They offer different kinds of crêpes (both savoury and sweet) and delicious homemade burgers. I really wanted a crêpe, but the burger was simply too big. We ordered it with extra cheese and fries, and had to leave the majority of the fries behind sadly. The burgers come with different and very creative homemade sauces.

The drink menu is pretty great as well, and they also offer some pancakes for breakfast. I was able to catch a glimpse of one of the pancakes from afar – next time I’m in Berlin I’m SO going to have one.

Brammibal’s Donuts

Remember donuts from before you went vegan? Imagine the best donut you ever had. Then go to Brammibal’s and never look back. Oh my gosh, it is just amazing. The place itself is bright and hip and really so much fun. And then you have a look at the counter and catch the first glimpse of that array of the most beautiful and yummy looking donuts ever.

The donuts are sugary, creative and incredibly tasty. We had each two for breakfast and couldn’t believe our luck. On top they serve a delicious cappuccino with great oat milk. My favourite donut was something like maple glazed coconut. Seriously, I’m so glad I don’t live in Berlin or I would go there every day. It’s the one spot you can’t miss out if you’re ever in the city!

Dolores

Not an insider’s tipp for regular Berlin visitors anymore. Dolores’ burritos are often named as the best burritos in town. I’ve been here a few times and have never been disappointed. It’s a fast food restaurant where you create and order your preferred burrito or burrito bowl. There are different options for vegans, which are clearly marked.

The little restaurant is directly behind Alexanderplatz and the perfect lunch place to refuel during your sightseeing trips. Serving sizes are pretty big. There’s another location somewhere in Berlin as well, just check their website for more infos.

Soy

Vietnamese food is by far my favourite, and Soy offers just that. And completely vegan, too! It’s a stylish place with a diverse menu. We had a Pho and rice noodle salad, both delicious. We’ve been eating a few Pho’s by the way, and this one was by far the best. They also offer creative drinks, like freshly made lemonades and teas. On weekdays there is also a lunch menu, which comes with spring rolls, a soup or a green tea.

The restaurant is also not far from the Alexander Platz, pretty much in-between The Barn and Dolores. We were lucky to get a table without a big fuss, but make sure to reserve a table in the evening.
