Berlin food update

Post by:

When we first moved here last spring, the north-west part of the city was curiously lacking in vegan places, compared to the rest of Berlin.

While it is still a noticeably empty zone on the Happy Cow map, the situation has improved due to the opening of two all-vegan cafés, Geh Veg and Valladares. They’re both very nice places too.

Valladares is a café with a small but well-stocked grocery store attached. If we lived nearby I’m sure we’d use it quite a bit. The café is good too, with a range of savoury and sweet options. We had wraps (note for non-German visitors: the word “oriental” in Germany refers to West Asia, not East Asia – so the “oriental wrap” is hummous, not hoi sin!) followed by a big chunk of chocolate cake, and a flapjack type thing, which we really enjoyed. We also bought some sweets for the way home!

The other vegan place in the area is called Geh Veg, which is a pun on the German for “go away” but turned into “Go Veg”. The Germans seem to really like puns. I was lured in by the promise of bagels, which didn’t disappoint. There’s a selection of ready-made bagels available, so don’t get there too late in the evening or they may run out! There are also hot dogs, desserts and a range of vegan ice-creams of many flavours. As you can see from the photo, we combined a cookie with ice-cream to create our own custom dessert! Geh Veg is open pretty late too, for a café, which suits us (we’re not morning people).
