Germany is one of my favourite places for veggie food. That may come as a surprise seeing as it’s generally known for bratwurst and schnitzel; however, I’ve always found it to be one of the easiest countries in which to find delicious and often innovative vegetarian and vegan food.
From smoothie bowls to burgers to cakes and pastries, I had so many delicious meals. Here’s my rundown of my favourites:
This artisan chocolate shop and cafe is the perfect place for coffee and a catch-up with a friend – which is exactly what I went here for!
Translating to God’s Diner, Göetterspeise serves not only a huge range of handcrafted chocolates but has a small food menu and they do great coffee with several milks and milk alternatives available.
They have a few outdoor window seats, which are the perfect place to catch the sunshine and people watch. For chillier days, the interior is cosy and homely.
We didn’t eat here but the coffee was delicious and prices were reasonable.
I’m not much of a tea drinker myself; we actually went to this tea house because along with their 150+ different teas, their food menu is entirely vegan.
They offer a lunch dish of the day, which on our visit was a quinoa bowl served with roasted corn, mashed parsnip and smoked tofu. The bowls were really fresh and delicious and we enjoyed them at one of their little outdoor tables.
If you are a fan of tea, this place is perfect. The cosy, dark wood interiors are decorated with shelves and shelves of teas and tea paraphernalia. They offer a selection of vegan cakes and slices to enjoy with your hot drink.
Prices are reasonable and service is very friendly. A lovely little place!
Friendly Asian-fusion restaurant Fei Scho was a short walk from my friend’s flat, so we ended up going twice for dinner.
They have a pretty small menu but most dishes are available with either a meat or tofu option so there’s still plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans.
On my first visit, I went for the tofu curry with chickpeas, sweet potato and mixed veg, which was delicious. I also had one of their giant summer rolls with tofu. So good!
The second time around, I had the Caramelised Tofu, which was served with rice and mixed salad. The tofu was sweet and sticky without being too rich. Perfect!
Their prices were really reasonable and service was friendly and fast. A great little neighbourhood find!
Emmi’s Kitchen is an entirely vegan cafe. Hidden away off the street, the cafe has a lovely courtyard where you can enjoy your meal in the sunshine.
Their lunch menu has a great range of bowls and salads on offer but we couldn’t go past their amazing-sounding burgers. The burgers are all served with a house quinoa and chia patty, pataas bravas (a nice canhe from chips or fries) and homemade vegan aioli.
Naturally, with my avocado obsession, I went for the Crazy Avocado Burger. Served on a rustic bun, it came with homemade guacamole, sprouts, walnuts, and a herb dip.
My friend had the Bavarian Chutney Burger, which was served with home-made chutney with sweet mustard and pickles, between a vegan brioche bun.
I really enjoyed my burger but not gonna lie, I had a slight case of food envy this time around!
On weekends only, Emmi’s sell freshly-baked cinnamon rolls. It was pretty much a given that we had to go back to try one, so as we headed out of town on a day trip, we stopped by to grab coffee and pastries to go.
The cinnamon rolls were still warm when we picked them up. Drool!
Owned by surfers who travelled the coasts of California, Hawaii and South Africa before setting up shop, Wagner’s Juicery has a young and modern vibe.
The entirely vegetarian/mostly vegan menu focuses on fresh, natural ingredients. Cakes are made daily and smoothies, juices, salads and bowls are made to order.
It was pretty hard to pick from their extensive smoothie bowl menu as everything sounded amazing! In the end, I went for a mixed berry and acai bowl topped with granola, puffed quinoa, seeds and fresh fruit.
My friend had a chocolate-raspberry bowl with cacao nibs. It was a teensy but rich for me but still really tasty. Her two year-old was a big fan!
Their coffee is excellent and along with dairy milk, you can choose from rice, almond, oat or soy. I went for an oat milk latte, which was impressively frothed!
They also have a window full of cakes and breads, most of which are vegan. I bought slices of their pumpkin and banana bread to have later, both of which were delicious!
