Cafés in Berlin: our top 10

1) Black Sheep

This vegan café nestled between the neighborhood of Kreuzberg & Alt-Treptow is a hidden treasure. Two passionate and super nice women are going to give you a huge smile for the day. That and a delicious coffee. They offer delicious meals for lunch, smoothies, sweet treats like raw snickers, no need to say more, right? They’re also the proud owners of the Berlin Kombucha Society, which is even cooler.

Where? Bouchéstr. 15

When? Mo-Sa from 8am to 6pm and Sundays 8am to 3pm

2) My Goodness

This vegan café a few meters from the Berlin Wall is a perfect place to have a cosy morning or afternoon with friends. What can you find there? A lot of delicious hot drinks like matcha or beetroot latte, delicious coffee, smoothie & smoothie bowls and healthy snacks. They also have a daily changing lunch- you can find the weekly menu on their website.

Our favorite item to start the day is the maca power up smoothie bowl made out of banana, peanut, maca, dates, ground coffee, coconut rice milk and topped with a super delicious homemade granola.

Where? Brunnenstraße 24

When? Mo-Friday from 7:30-7:30pm, Saturday 9am-2pm, Sunday 11am-3pm.

3) Haferkater

This café specializes in Scottish porridge and is heaven for a comfy breakfast with friends. Especially during Autumn or Winter when the weather in Berlin is dark and freezing. The base of the porridge is always vegan, only some toppings are not. You can choose to have nuts, granola, fresh fruit, stewed fruit, coconut, berries, seeds… My favorite one is “the Naschkater”. Why? Just close your eyes for a few seconds and imagine a hot bowl warming your hands on a cold grey morning… the pieces of dark chocolate melting on your warm porridge… the banana slices dancing with the maple sirup… I’m sure you understand me! If you’re more in lunch mode you can also order salads and soups. They have different hot drinks and delicious Ethiopian coffee from the Berlin Coffee Circle.

Where? Two different locations.

The small and cosy one, in Friedrichshain : Boxhagener Str. 76-78
Mo-Fr: 07:00-16:00 Sa-So: 08:00-17:00

The new and bigger one, in Prenzlauerberg: Eberswalder Straße 26
Mo-Fr: 07:00-18:00 Sa-So: 08:00-19:00

4) Brammibal’s donuts

You can’t visit Berlin without visiting Brammibal’s! This donuts place in the heart of Neukölln Maybachufer* is a super cosy location where everyone can find a little something for themself. Like we personally don’t eat donuts… So why would we have the crazy idea to put a donut place in our top 10 list when Berlin has many other cool cafés to offer? The atmosphere is nice, the staff are welcoming, the choice of plant-based milk is large, the coffee is delicious. They are making everything by hand, all 100% vegan, without any artificial additives. There are so many flavors of donuts and all so mouthwatering. For example, chocolate toasted coconut, caramel hazelnuts, espresso, pumpkin cream cheese, white chocolate pistachio, chocolate peanut butter fudge & caramel, and a lot more.

When? Every day from 10am to 6pm

Where? Maybachufer 8

*don’t miss the great Turkish market at the same spot every Wednesday and Friday

5) Daluma

Daluma is not a fully vegan café but has a lot of vegan and raw options. You have a large list of superfood smoothies and cold pressed juices but also good breakfast and lunch options. The atmosphere is cosy and trendy, the staff nice, the products fresh, organic and tasty.

Where? Weinbergsweg 3

When? Mo-Fr from 8am to 8pm, Saturday from 10:00 to 7pm, Sunday from 10am to 6pm.

6) Maison Han

This Vietnamese café in the heart of Neukölln isn’t vegan but has great vegan options, because you know…that’s Berlin! This charming place serves good coffee, fresh salads, tasty starters & yummy desserts. We loved the Bahn Cuon Vegan: steamed rice crêpes stuffed with tofu, shiso, mint, onion and coriander. Something to drink with that? The matcha coconut milk!

Where? Pannierstraße 40

When? Mo-We-Th-Fr-Sat-Su 10pm-8pm. Closed the Tuesdays.

7) Kaffee 9

Located next to the great Markhalle 9 (see the Thursday street food market in our top 10 places to eat in Berlin here) this coffee roastery is definitely a strategic place to visit! They serve a delicious coffee and use the Oatly brand of oat milk, if you’re up for a vegan cappuccino or latte. The atmosphere and charming decoration makes this place one of our favorite cafés to enjoy a morning or afternoon date while exploring the area of Kreuzberg.

Where? Eisenbahnstr. 43

When? Mo-Tue-Wed-Fr 7:30-6pm, Thursday 7:30-9pm, Sat. 7:30am-7pm and Sunday 10am-6pm.

8) Goldhahn & Sampson

More a delicatessen than a real Café, Goldhahn & Sampson still have some tables to calm down and enjoy a great coffee with some treats you just found in the shop. They use the barista edition of Oatly oat milk and that’s definitely a plus. They have a large choice of cookbooks from all over the world, all the spices and chocolates you could ever dream of and they regularly host some awesome cooking courses.

Where? Two branches in town, one in Charlottenburg: Wilmersdorfer Str. 102/103

The one in Prenzlauerberg: Dunckerstraße 9.

When? Mo-Saturday from 8:00 to 8pm

9) No milk today

This cute and cosy little café in the heart of Kreuzberg is fully vegan, fair trade and organic. It has a large choice of breakfast, lunch, hot and cold drinks and cakes. You can also find different gluten free options, the staff are always friendly, the armchairs comfy and the atmosphere super nice.

Where? Fichtestr. 3

When? Tuesday-Sunday from 10am to 7pm.

10) Winterfeldt Schokoladen

This café-shop was a pharmacy in the past and the new owners chose to keep all the furniture, which gives this place a unique charm. The main element here is chocolate! Chocolate, chocolate and chocolate. And coffees, cakes and everything you can expect from a good café. But mainly chocolate. You can drink it in a lot of ways and from different countries. I, for example, had a hot ginger and coconut soy drink with vegan banana bread. You can walk through the shop and discover the awesome collection of chocolate from all over the world and treat yourself or the people you love. This isn’t a vegan place but there are a few options available. We absolutely love the atmosphere. The prices aren’t expensive, the drinks delicious and the location really beautiful. The perfect place to spend a comforting afternoon hidden from the cold weather of Berlin.

Where? Goltzstraße 23

When? Mo-Sa 9pm-8pm and Sunday 12pm-7pm
