My new favourite cafe - Edit

Cafe Vux is a must-visit if you're in Neukölln. Its location is across from a pretty church, so if the weather is good you'll have a nice view and be able to people watch on this quiet side street.

The staff here are friendly, and please note it's cash only. I've come here twice so far: once for a slice of cake and fresh mint tea (super fresh - as in the mint leaves are freshly picked and then have hot water poured on them, great flavour). The cake was extremely decently priced for the large piece I received (it was cocoa cherry flavoured), and was the perfect balance of richness and not-too-sweet-ness :) Very satisfying.

My husband and I then came back another day for their Sunday brunch. For 9.5€ there is a buffet of delicious and healthy vegan foods and desserts that is pretty out of this world! For an added cost you can order coffee, teas, lattes etc. and sip on your drink as you eat the tasty food (and their is complimentary water otherwise.)

I've found my new neighbourhood cafe and highly recommend anyone pop in for a visit! Please note for locals/people travelling with dogs, this place is dog friendly.

Cozy vegan cafe - Edit

I came to Cafe Vux after (almost) a day of walking in Berlin. I ended up ordering a lemon bagel, a raspberry cheesecake and a latte as I was pretty hungry :D
I loved especially the cheesecake which was out of this world.

Pros: cozy, inexpensive, yummy

Cons: closes early

amazing cakes, great staff - Edit

Love this place - the atmosphere is warm despite the largely white interiors. The choice of cakes is good and they have lots of hot drinks and smoothies too.

There are bagels and soups too which look great.

It's warm and the service is really friendly and fast. I highly recommend trying this place out. They have bunch too

Pros: cakes, service, ambience

Cons: opening times (over summer and autumn mostly)

Leckere Kuchen - Edit

Das Café habe ich durch Zufall entdeckt, als ich in der Gegend unterwegs war. Beim ersten Besuch habe ich einen Chailatte getrunken, sehr lecker, aus echtem Tee, nicht aus Konzentrat.
Beim zweiten Besuch mit einem Freund hatten wir Tee und Torte. Meine "Sahne"Torte war lecker, auch wenn die Konsistenz der veganen Sahne etwas anders ist. Trotzdem sehr lecker. Der Schocko-Kokoskuchen meines Freunds war köstlich, sehr schockoladig!
Sonntags gibt es wohl ab 12 Uhr einen Brunch.

Pros: Leckere Kuchen, Nette Atmosphäre , Vegan und bio

Cons: Draußen nur wenige Tische

Excellent cake - Edit

I had a slice of pomegranate cake which was very good. It also looked very fancy and was pretty big. Too bad I did not have room for another slice, the other options also looked very tasty.

Cosy place to stay and read a book. There was some punk music in the background, which I really liked.

Pros: Excellent cake, good value, friendly staff

To-die-for cake! - Edit

I got a big slab of passion fruit and pomegranate cake and wish I had got a photo before I demolished it because it looked so pretty. And it tasted sooo good. It was a big slice but I didn't feel sick after because it was quite light and fluffy and it had loads of cream but that was quite light too. Amazing!

Pros: Out of this world cake!, Outdoor seating

Visit recommended! - Edit

Very nice place with a comfortable atmosphere. The interior is clear and invites for a stay. I had an awesome Pumpkin-Paprika Quiche with smoked Tofu. The best vegan Quiche I had recently. After that i ate a Vanilla-Pear Cake that was very delicious. Beside it I drank a black Coffee with a balanced taste. Not too bitter or sour. I will defenitely come here again. You should, too :)

Pros: Everything is vegan. Awesome food and drinks. Not

Cons: None

Mixed feelings - Edit

Hve only been here three times or so. The cake and the drinks are pretty great but I was totally disappointed by the bagel the last time I ate there. Prices are quite nice, though.

Cafe Vux is deserving of its glowing reviews - Edit

Cafe Vux is an all Vegan Cafe with a main focus on desserts and coffee. The menu has some savory items and there is a large Sunday brunch. The Cafe has a nice relaxed atmosphere and it feels spacious and inviting. I think Cafe Vux is deserving of its glowing reviews, the food and service are excellent. Just be aware they have a small selection of savory offerings that are not served every day.

Located in Neukölln- it may seem this neighborhood is a bit out of the way- Cafe Vux is conveniently located across the street from Trattoria Ponte Verde (Italian Vegan Restaurant) and 100 meters from Dr. Pogo Vegan Collective. Easily reached by both S+U Bahn. Your effort in exploring this part of Berlin will be amply rewarded with great vegan food.

Ah, wonderful Café Vux! - Edit

When we first moved to Berlin we lived close to Café Vux, and it quickly became our favourite. I only regret that we live on the other side of town now. Note to Café Vux staff – if you want to open a branch in Prenzlauer Berg, let me know! ;)

It's not the largest menu in the world (soup, sandwiches, waffles, sweets, drinks) but what they do have is delicious. It's perfect for bagel lovers (like us). There's about six or seven to choose from, my personal favourites are the Guava Jelly with (vegan) cheese (which might sound strange, but try it and thank me later), and also the Seitan-Lime one.

There's very good coffees too, and a good range of desserts, such as slices of cake, and these really nice muffins with a sweet crispy topping (though these do change, so they'll probably have a different type of muffin in when you visit!).

The only thing we weren't impressed with were the waffles. It wasn't actually bad or anything, just rather average compared to everything else. I'd opt for a muffin or slice of cake instead next time.

All said, it's a really, really nice place. We've enjoyed every visit. It's located in a good area for other vegan stuff too.

Pros: best filled bagels, good coffees, tasty cakes

I still have to go for the brunch! - Edit

I really like this nice and small place. The waitress was very polite and she told me even if the cake is gluten-free, they do cook wheat in the kitchen, so sagacious. I had a raw vegan cake with Lime and it was delicious. Also the Chai latte was great. I have to come back for the brunch!

Pros: raw cakes, nice place, all vegan

Cons: not so much choice

Shoulda had a cake - Edit

Having arrived for lunch our eyes were bigger than our bellies and ordered three bagels to share between two. Oops. They were good, if a bit dry, and we were very fool. Having bypassed the counter on the way to a seat we didn't see the gorgeous looking cakes until we were leaving.

The place was quite sparse, and with little decoration it was quite loud, even with only a few other tables dining. But the staff were friendly and the food tasty.

Pros: Bagels, Cakes

Cons: Interior decoration

not sure what to do with this - Edit

beautifu place, very friendly staff.
nice vegan menu.
cheap prices.
the best cakes in the world
but one bad thing here. they use whte chemical sugars.
what a big question.
everything so perfect just this last thing so important.
it is so easy to replace it for at least something less worse.
but it seems they don't care about it.
all their cakes are made with white chemical sugars and they are not gonna change it.
i am sure the customers wouldn't mind pay just a bit more if they would use agave syrup or organic cane sugar,
thats all what vegan and health is about.
or maybe the customers don't care either ?
it probably seems that sad way.
maybe they should learn that vegan and white chemical sugar don't go together.
this place needs to study about it. thats my opinion.
i try to stay away from these vegan cakes with white chemical sugar, but lets be honest they look fabulous and taste oh so good.
maybe once in a while i could try it .
but there are other vegan restaurants in town , selling similar cakes , and these are luckily without the white sugar , and taste fantastic as well.
i believe there is a connection between white sugar and hospitals and cancer.
people should consider this before they order without thinking.

a place to visit - Edit

I've been to this café few years ago, while living in Berlin for some time, the area was pretty isolated but the café had a nice and relaxed atmosphere (very white!), good cappuccino and amazing cakes, still remember their Brownies, yummy!
Wish to visit again soon!

Pros: very good patisserie, quiet

great lunch option. - Edit

Arrived ad 1400 and still plenty on the menu available.

Half a dozen vegan deserts on display all looking good. Really nice layout to the restaurant, the only thing lacking was sunshine, but we can't have everything.

We desiden on bagels, I went for a pumpkin seed one with seitan limao, it arrived with plenty of salad. My better half had a seasame bagel with smokey habanero. Both bagels were fresh, we shard and both had a bite to them, but tasted very different. Both were great.

Blueberry cheesecake for desert was magic, flavoursome and light.

The coffee was nice and strong and it'd a great lunch option.

A large selection of teas were also available

Pros: great staff, fresh healthy food, great value

A good place for posh snacks! - Edit

I was a little dissapointed that there was no savoury food on offer besides soup even though it was more than an hour before closing time when we got to Vux. The soup and cakes we had though were very good and I'm reliably informed the apple cake we didn't have is "the best". The hot chocolate was excellent and the tea adequate. The healthy green smoothie tasted a bit more healthy than tasty! The decor is very clean, bright and trendy another place determined not to be categorized as part of the "alternative" ghetto. Vux is close to the Dr Pogo all vegan shop which is useful.

Pros: Tasty

Cons: Limited menu, Not cheap, Out of the way!

Cons: Nothing, At, All
