Best Vegan Restaurant Berlin: My Berlin Vegan Guide

Just for y’all, I’ve eaten my way around the best vegan Berlin trail, chomping on great food like the finest vegan burgers, vegan currywurst, vegan doner kebabs, vegan donuts, vegan cakes… in fact, just pick your favorite food.

The problem with spending seven years trying to eat all the best vegan Berlin food and vegetarian food is that it’s such a vibrant vegan scene, it’s constantly expanding. I keep thinking I’ve eaten at all the best places, then overnight another five incredible vegan food Berlin places appear. So this list of the best vegan restaurants near me gets constantly updated with my latest discoveries from the lots of vegan restaurants that keep on appearing.

This is, therefore, by no means a definitive list of everywhere you should eat… but it is, in my humble opinion, the best Berlin vegan food you should add to your Berlin itinerary. So read on, drool, book your weekend in Berlin, and feast to your heart’s content on the best vegan food in Berlin.

Best Berlin Vegan Restaurants: My Current Favorite Places


1. Brammibal’s Donuts

brammibals berlin

Speaking of the best vegan places in Berlin… Scattered all across town, a small part of the American dream lives on in this vegan café with this classic treat, which has been oh-so-deliciously veganized. If the song “Oh I went downtown and walked around the block/I walked right into the donut shop…” was part of your childhood, then Brammibal’s will be a sugary sweet heaven for you and maybe the best vegan restaurant Berlin possibly has. Not only are their vegan donuts hands down the best in Berlin (or, might I even say, in Europe) but they’re also wildly creative with their flavors. The wide variety changes monthly (plus a changing weekend special) so they always keep us on our feet and wanting more. A vegan breakfast Berlin staple for those with a sweet tooth. Monday is vegan cinnamon roll day FYI. They also have free Wifi.

2. Alaska Vegan Bar

vegan tapas at Alaska Bar Berlin

Alaska has been in existence for quite a while now, but only recently did I fall completely in love with it. An unpretentious curb-side terrace in a residential area of Neukölln hides delicious vegan versions of Spanish tapas that are great at any time of day — seriously, give it a try for boozy weekend brunch. The patatas bravas are a reason alone to make your way there, but literally, everything on the long menu is stellar, down to the amazing quality of their sourdough bread. The service is friendly, the ambiance is great, the prices are more than fair, really, you cannot go wrong here! They also have vegan piña coladas!

3. Calm Coffee

calm coffee berlin

Instagram has been a great place for cute cafés to flourish this past year, with easy-to-share pretty interiors and even prettier food and drinks. One place that’s fast becoming a regular weekly pit-stop for me is Calm Coffee and their changing menu of delicious yeasty vegan buns and “cloudy” drinks. I think the photos speak for themselves, but all the buns and “cloudy’s” (a creamy and dreamy layered drink of various flavors, pictured above is the mango-matcha version topped with matcha-flavored oat cream) are vegan (there are also a few non-vegan menu items, despite what Happy Cow says). Look out for the fruit buns (strawberries and raspberries) they are TO DIE FOR. Great iced coffee in the summer too!

4. Gazzo

gazzo pizza berlin

There are a few other places where you can get really great vegan pizza in Berlin (la Stella Nera, Sato, Zero Stress), but Gazzo is my favorite, both for the quality of the pizza (dat sourdough crust tho) and the ambiance/location. Beware that the place isn’t 100% vegan, but there are always many vegan options on the menu and the vegan cheese they use is absolutely delicious. The sourdough is soft, thick, and chewy and there’s a great wine menu alongside. Best enjoyed on a steamy summer day on the terrace. The place could definitely use more vegan desserts (there were none at the time of my visit), but I’m so excited about Gazzo, I just want to eat pizza there day in and day out. To top it off, they use only local, sustainable, and natural ingredients. The best vegan pizza according to me. If you prefer thick crust or are into Neapolitan-style pizzas, try Gemello.

5. Chimneys

Chimney Berlin Vegan

Make sure you’re not planning to eat a full meal shortly after eating something from Chimneys vegan cafe because this will for sure ruin your dinner – it’s a meal in and out of itself. And a perfectly legitimate one, I reckon, if slightly pricey. But what more can you ask for on a hot day when you’re craving something sweet. These are over the top, but they are delicious, freshly baked, and, well, they look amazing!

6.Vegano Flavors

For those who miss a big juicy steak (or not), Vegano Flavors packs a punch in flavor and originality with their Middle Eastern all-vegan meaty plates. Not one for the gluten-intolerant however, but this is truly meat alternative done very, very right, full of flavors, plus amazing hummus, great bread and lovely service.

7. FREA

FREA is one of the few vegan fine-dining options in Berlin (there is also Lucky Leek, Cookies Cream and Oukan Dining mentioned below) and has something really special going on in that it is also zero waste. The plant-filled interior design screams class and the seasonal menu of creative dishes is more than top-notch. A little bit on the pricey side for some, but of course you get what you pay for and everything from the vegan menu at FREA is amazing and of top quality. The wine menu is also great. My favorite spot to have a fancy vegan meal on a special occasion — very romantic! The main course selection is stellar.

8. Vincent Vegan

vegan restaurant berlin - vincent vegan

Out with the rubbery soy patty, this is veggie burger fast food heaven. I wish Vincent Vegan had chosen a better location to finally set sail in Berlin, but I understand that they are trying to reach the mass, and I guess a brand new shiny mall is the place to do that (sometimes they operate out of their food truck at events). The fact remains that the brand new East Side Mall is an eyesore like I’ve rarely seen, and the only ever reason I will step food inside is to grab me one of the amazing Beyond Burger from Vicent Vegan. I’m sure everything else is also good, but that’s all I’ll ever eat from there, despite the hefty price, and despite the shitty location. That burger trumps everything else possible. Grab two or three, just in case, and cross over to the East Side Gallery to eat them. Another great option for vegan burgers is Lia’s Kitchen in P.berg.

9. Veganz

veganz

How many cities can pride themselves on having a fully vegan grocery store chain? Well, Berlin obviously does and Veganz is your one-stop shop for a large selection of vegan cheeses, amazing snacks, cream cheese, yogurt, chocolate, granola bars, ice cream, and everything else you could think of. Veganz grocery stores have it! Having vegan shops that offer all those vegan products is one of the best parts of living in Berlin!

10. Li.Ke

li.ke vegan berlin

Holy peanut sauce. Li.Ke hasn’t been opened for that long but already has a jam-packed terrace most evenings, and there’s a good reason for that: it’s delicious and some of the best vegan food Berlin currently has in store. The decor is extremely garish and fun and tacky and so very Thai, and that’s what drew me in the first place. Beyond the great atmosphere, there’s some really amazing vegan Thai food to be had (it’s all vegan, yes!), sticky rice (yes!!!!), and what the hell, vegan fried eggs (try them, they’re amazing!). Pair with a visit to the Boxi weekly market right across the street (food on Saturday and second-hand on Sunday).

11. Greenfinch

greenfinch vegan berlin

Greenfinch is a lovely hip café in Prenzlauer Berg. The food is all vegan and you’ll find things like sourdough, hummus bowl, and muesli, as well as the main reason for me to visit — a glorious stack of vegan pancakes followed by one of their daily amazing cakes. There are also a few lunch options to pick from. A beautiful little cozy space to start the day with a vegan brunch!

12. Holy Flat!

holyflat-vegan-berlin

Neukölln is fast becoming my fave hood to hang, and HOLY FLAT! is definitely one of the reasons why. Healthy, natural & environmentally friendly bowls, with hands down the best damn tofu I’ve ever had (in the kimchi bowl, depicted above). The food is inspired by European, Middle Eastern, Central, and South American flavors, and everything is available in vegan and vegetarian meal options. There’s also a HOLY FLAT! in Prenzlauer Berg.

13. Han West

Fans of Asian food and all things dumplings and soy sauce, rejoy! Han West is a fantastic hole in the wall where you order outside and then eat at the lovely adjacent bar. They have a few options, but I always opt for the vegan combo box, which has a little bit of everything (some dumplings, a steamy bao bun, and some french fries served with all sorts of dips). It’s a big meal that I always end up somehow finishing because it is so delicious. This is also my go-to lazy Sunday delivery option. Super delicious!

14. Vux

vux vegan cake berlin

One of the best vegan restaurants in Berlin when it comes to cakes… Vux has some pretty incredible food, and Berlin has some pretty incredible vegan cakes. So when I say that Vux has the best cupcakes in town, that should not… repeat, should not be taken lightly. In particular, the peanut butter cupcake. It’s like peanutty heaven in cupcake form. If that’s not up your street, there’s sure to be something else that will suit you – Vux has so much choice for cakes that to say you’re spoiled is a massive understatement. It’s also one of the top vegan restaurants Berlin has for brunch.

15. Tsu Tsu

tsu tsu

A recent discovery of mine, Tsu Tsu offers vegan (and non-vegan, there are some animal products in the kitchen) Japanese fried chicken that is crunchy and greasy and amazingly delicious. Served with a wedge of lemon and some sides such as edamame, french fries, or onigiri, eat this curbside on the lovely Graefestraße with a cold beer on a sunny day and thank me later. Summer in Berlin, and the vegan living is easy 😉 Tsu Tsu is the vegan food option you didn’t know you needed! Just good food and reasonable prices.

16. Oukan Dining

oukan dining

A relatively newcomer on the now expanding Berlin vegan fine dining scene, Oukan has absolutely no comparison point or competitor when it comes to the quality of both the dining and the overall experience. Located in a dark alley of Mitte, entering Oukan already feels like some underground clubby business. You’ll be greeted at the entrance with a drink of your choice while you wait for your table to be ready. If you can afford it, I suggest fully splurging and trying the 7-course menu with wine pairings. The staff is fun and there is nothing stiff about the experience. Au contraire, there’s something quintessentially “Berlin” about the whole thing — it’s dark, grungy, and underground. And most obviously the food is absolutely incredible. It’s expensive but totally worth it. Wouldn’t be surprised if they get themselves a Michelin Star in coming years.

17. Factory Girl

Factory Girl

Sadly not many brunch places in Berlin take reservations, and I fell victim to arriving too late to a snake of people wrapped around the block waiting for a spot Factory Girl on several occasions. But low and behold, one morning, I managed to get in. All that for one thing and one thing only: this messy business called COCO ANJELA. An indulgent creamy pile of changing flavors that is 100% vegan and 100% delicious. Sure, there’s a bunch of other great vegan dishes on the menu, but COCO ANJELA is THE reason to come alone.

18. The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is a fully vegan Italian bakery located in Mitte. Not a whole lot to say here, as I think the image speaks for itself. Excellent pastries (some savory things too), great coffee, tiny place (so best for takeaway). It’s so so lovely, you should make it a pit stop for a treat if you can — you won’t regret it, I promise! Just delicious food and a vegan paradise.

VEGAN-FRIENDLY HOTELS IN BERLIN

If you know anything about vegan travel destinations, then you’ll have seen Berlin consistently appearing – and now you understand why. It’s quite simply unrivaled it even has vegan and vegan-friendly hotels! And if you’re planning your trip to Berlin, you need at least a week or two to get around everywhere – and you’d better practice your competitive eating before your visit as there are no less than 600 vegan-friendly restaurants in the entire city!

Do check out my full list of Berlin accommodation recommendations here.


1.Almodóvar Hotel

Almodovar Hotel

Nestled in the heart of vibrant Friedrichshain is the wonderful oasis that is Almodóvar Vegetarian Hotel. Such a special place! If you are bored of cookie-cutter hotels, then Almodóvar vegan hotel is definitely the place to be! The decor is cozy and warm with beautiful chunky wood furniture and nothing at all is sourced from animals. The rooms are huge and the bed is comfy with nice little touches such as a provided yoga mat, which made it extra special for me. The great breakfast buffet is absolutely delicious and in large part vegan, and the wonderfully peaceful spa on the top floor is the perfect place to end a busy day exploring the city. A truly special place a minute walk away to some vegan places! I do believe it’s adjacent restaurant, Bistro Bardot, is now sadly closed.

Hotel Otto Berlin

Hotel Otto Berlin

Hotel Otto is another vegan-friendly hotel and is located in the peaceful neighborhood of Charlottenburg, remote enough to catch your break and unwind, yet just a short train ride away from the center of things. Otto really shines in the quality of its service, priding itself to cater to special needs or any dietary requirements. And boy did they deliver! We were served amazingly fluffy vegan pancakes each morning alongside vegan yogurt and I’m pretty they would have obliged to any of our special requests. The rooms are modern, bright, and airy, with super fluffy bedding and nice lounging areas. There are quite a few Berlin vegan restaurants just around the corner too.

Which ones of those vegan restaurants are on your list for the next time you visit Berlin? Or is there anything missing from my Berlin vegan guide? I’d love to add more raw options like raw cakes, and also still looking for the best tofu scramble, Italian dishes, hot dogs, Chinese food, and Vietnamese dishes.
