Berlin is a plant-based paradise, these brunch spots are not to be missed:
Berlin’s bohemian Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood is one of the more picturesque neighborhoods in Berlin. Thanks to it being relatively untouched during the war, most of the buildings were built before 1948.
With cobbled stoned streets lined with cafes and independent storefronts. Prenzlauer Berg is a perfect area to grab your friends and enjoy a brunch on the sun-flooded sidewalk patios during the summer, or cozy up inside during the winter.
Plant-based eaters never go hungry, almost every restaurant offers delicious options for vegans. However, there are a few vegan brunch places that stand above the rest:
Directly on Prenzlauer Alle, Plant Base is a fully vegan cafe that never disappoints. Whether you want to grab a chocolate croissant and go, or enjoy a full-fledge brunch experience Plant Base has you covered. From their homemade granola parfaits, salmon bagel sandwiches, to the breakfast plate for two, there’s something for everyone.
Looking for beautiful scenery with equally incredible food? Head to Neue Liebe on Rykestraße straße. The street is always bustling since it’s the heart of the Kollwitz Kiez that is a weekend hotspot thanks to the weekly Saturday market. The street is lined with brunch hotspots and cafes, but Neue Liebe can’t be missed. Offering vegetarian and vegan food that is always made fresh. The Belgian waffles are a crowd-pleaser, but the unique toasts on Hausgemachtes Brot (homemade bread) can easily steal the show.
Off Prenzlauer berg’s beaten path you’ll find Green Finch tucked away on a quaint cobblestoned street in the Winsviertel Kiez. This newcomer to the Berlin vegan brunch scene easily made a name for themselves. With a killer menu boasting vegan short stack pancakes, roasted red pepper and goat cheese panini, and homemade muesli bowls. You’ll want to come back to this place time and time again.

If you’re ready to eat, and I mean really ready to stuff yourself. Head to Ataya cafe for the vegan all-you-can-eat brunch buffet of your dreams. This Afro-Italian brunch spot will leave you feeling more than satisfied. The fusion between Italian and African cuisines works surprisingly well together, from the veggie stew to the perfectly roasted eggplant, nobody can resist heading for seconds and thirds.
**Note that reservations are required, and should be made a couple of days in advance because they book out quickly.
For a true Berliner experience head to Kastanenalle’s Cafe Morgenrot. This cafe is home to one of the last standing left-wing collectives in Prenzlauer Berg. The atmosphere is raw and somewhat punk, although it might seem intimidating for those not accustomed, they are very welcoming and inclusive.
While they used to do an incredible all-you-can-eat vegan and vegetarian buffet, because of COVID they changed to a Vegan Teller (plate) Brunch. On the weekends from 11 am onward you can get a vegan plate filled with the goodies that were on the all you can eat menu: Hummus, frijoles, vegan scrambled eggs, vegan herring salad, various vegan spreads with fruit, vegetables, marinated olives, margarine, and of course bread.
