Good vegan porridge

If you have to take the train early and you need a quick breakfast, this place will be a life saver.

They have several vegan options for porridge and they’re all freshly made.

Good portions and reasonably priced too.

Only negative thing is that there are no seating places.

Pros: Vegan porridge options, Fast and friendly service, Reasonably priced

Cons: No seating places , More vegan options are welcome

Good wholesome breakfast

Had great takeaway food from here twice on a recent trip. The porridge is lovely, nice mix of topics and even the small portion was very filling! Also tried the chickpea ceasar wrap which was delicious. A good stop if you're catching a train somewhere!

Pros: Big portions, Plant milks for coffee, Lots of options

Best option in the main station

The coffee with oat milk is tasty. They have vegan porridge, very good if you are really hungry.
Good banana bread.
The staff is friendly. You can bring your cup with you, that‘s very nice.
They have a bonus card, buy 7 coffees or porridge’s, the eight one is for free.
I give only 4 stars, because it is expensive, sometimes the coffee cup is not really full and they tip away the rest of the milk. Not so friendly!

Pros: Many vegan options, Healthy and tasty food, Really quick deliver

Cons: Expensive

Great Porridge

It's very convenient to quickly grab a tasty bowl od porridge directly at the central station. The porridge itself is wonderfully creamy and there is a good selection of vegan topping options, which are added in a generous manner.

Pros: Good prices, Great selection of toppings, Quick and easy

Cons: No savoury vegan options

Just right porridge.

Found this on HappyCow and went for a second breakfast just to try it out. They said the plant symbol means it’s vegan, except the one with granola that had honey baked in. I tried the one called Nach... it had cacao nibs, banana and mango.

Pros: Quick and at the Hauptbahnhof. , Eat whilst walking or snack lunch in the hall.

Nice one

The vegan hot chocolate is very good and there is a choice of vegan milks. They also have a range of banana bread which looks good. I have tried the one with poppy seeds and really liked it. Did not try the porridge but looks like it is vegan as it is made with water

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Fair prices

Coffee + breakfast on the go

A good place for breakfast oats and a quick vegan latte. There weren’t as many food options as this chain has in their Berlin location which has more savory options like wraps. This one has only breakfast food, and by the end of the day when I came they were running out of pastries/ banana bread.

Good quality and good price. Matcha latte is good.

Yummy warm porridge

Great little place in the middle part of the train station. So glad there is a breakfast alternative to sandwiches when travelling. I got the Knusperkater porridge for my train ride and it was super tasty. About half of the porridges are vegan and they also had several different types of vegan banana breads and energy balls. The staff was extremely friendly and fun. Will stop here again next time I'm in Cologne.

Great oatmeal and coffee

This is a small walk-up cafe with a limited menu of oatmeal varieties and coffees/teas. I enjoyed the berry/banana oatmeal and a hot matcha latte, both of which were great. Other than honey, completely vegan, and the other varieties have another (ahorn) syrup, which you could presumably skip. Seating is available immediately next door in Coffee Fellows.

Pros: Open early in the Central Train Station, Good quality food, Recyclable cardboard cups and wood spoons

Cons: None

I had my breakfast there when it was hard to find any other place that was open at that time. I liked it, especially that it wasn´t too sweet. As they don´t have seats they only offer the dishes in throwaway-cups. I don´t like that, but at least it seems they are trying to avoid plastic.

Pros: tasty, not too sweet, affordable

Cons: waste, no seats

Great porridge and hot drinks

Great selection of porridge and hot drinks. I love their hot chocolate chai. I wish they would add a curcuma latte to their menu now that coffee fellows doesn't sell it any more.

Perfect for a vegan sweet tooth

Haferkater offers some nice porridge with vegan toppings. Perfect if you want something sweet for breakfast or as a snack. Sadly they dont have a hearty topping. The pricing is fair and the store is easy to find, right beside the Rewe Go.
