Everything served at Lia’s Kitchen is 100% vegan and it’s a light, airy space to enjoy a meal. In the summer, indulge in your burgers in the outdoor garden.

Kollwitzstraße 54, 10405 Berlin, Germany
A lovely lunch spot in the summer, Lucky Leek is a sophisticated vegan restaurant that boasts an outdoor seating area in Kollwitzkiez. This is an affordable fine dining vegan experience where you can enjoy a tasty 3 course meal for €36 or have a beautifully presented main meal on its own for €19. While this is the priciest option on the list, if you’re looking for a vegan restaurant to book for a special occasion, then Lucky Leek is for you. The desserts will tempt you; try the vegan creme brulee cheesecake! This place is just a 14 minute walk from the St Christopher’s Inns hostel.
95 Treptower Straße, 12059 Berlin
If you’re craving a decent vegan pizza when in Berlin, get a slice of this place. It’s a little out of the way (if you have a bike, it would take about half an hour from the city centre), but totally worth the trip. Sfizy Veg is owned and run by Italians, making the pizza and pasta options here as authentic as it comes! Order the homemade bruschetta to start, followed by a 1 metre pizza, loaded with vegan cheese (they even do vegan gorgonzola!) to share with your friends. It’s no wonder this place is always packed - the taste of the food would make any meat-lover forget what might be missing AND the cheap price-tag is a winner, too. Make sure to book before you go to avoid disappointment.
Boxhagener Str. 56, 10245 Berlin
Did you know that vegan doner kebabs are a thing? We didn’t either - that’s until we stumbled across Voner on Boxhagener Street. The Voner kebabs are roasted on a spit, just how they’re cooked in your average kebab joint, but don’t be weirded out if you’re a little squeamish about vegan ‘meat’ as they taste nothing like the real thing - just a seriously delicious vegan meal. Us vegans don’t even have to miss out on currywurst in Berlin anymore! The vegan version of the classic German dish isn’t served up in many places apart from here, so if it’s an authentic taste of the country’s cuisine you’re after, Voner is your answer!
Hermannstraße 230, 12053 Berlin
Two Planets is a vegan’s perfect brunch spot. Again, the menu isn’t entirely vegan, but it’s plant-based options are insane and super Instagrammable! Whatever you choose, expect a bowl bursting with colour, looking too good to eat, to arrive in front of you. Two Planets pride themselves on their “dope ass toast” and “damn fine coffee”, and they’re not wrong! The avocado toast whipped up here is a dream… You’ve got to taste it to believe us.
Chausseestraße 2, 10115 Berlin
Momos is famous in Berlin for the tastiest veggie and vegan dumplings around. The actual restaurant is only small with a simple selection of 6 different dumpling options on the menu. 4 out of the 6 options are vegan (the rest vegetarian), making Momos a perfect place to pop into for a quick bite to eat at lunchtime. We recommend going for the mix of vegan dumplings, which will come either steamed or fried and stuffed with fillings such as mushroom and potato or pumpkin and chickpea.
Dunckerstraße 85, 10437 Berlin
Don’t skip by this place thinking “it’s just another dumpling spot”, because Happies could not be more different to all the other restaurants in Berlin - especially on the vegan scene. What you’ll get here are fluffy, steamed balls of dough filled with a savoury or sweet mixture that pours out when you cut into it. They’re pretty cheap and two ‘happies’ are just enough for a filling dinner (you can always order more if not!). They really are called happies for a reason - once you try one, you’ll never forget it!
Krossener Str. 16, 10245 Berlin
For a vegan-friendly plate of food overflowing with colourful curries and Indian flavours, Goura Pakora is the one! We’re talking HUGE portions and amazing value for money. You’ve gotta try the vegan pakora or masala dosa - a crispy, savoury pancake filled with potato, along with dhaal and coconut chutney on the side. Plus, the trays of different curries, dhaals, chutneys and poppadoms is massive and packed full of flavour - whether you’re vegan or not, you’d be blown away. The entire menu is vegetarian but not everything is vegan, so just remember to check what’s what before putting your order in.
Kastanienallee 89, 10435 Berlin
For a cozy atmosphere, quick service and deliciously authentic Vietnamese food that’s also vegan, Cat Tuong is perfect. This little eatery in north Berlin is like a taste of Vietnam. Their pho soup and dim sum is to die for as are their mi quang noodles. Even real meat-eaters find themselves absolutely loving this place, and yet it’s still such a hidden vegan gem in the city! If you’re in the mood for some southeast Asian flavours, head up to Cat Tuong - your tastebuds will thank you for it!
