Oatmeal is good

I like their oatmeal, but it's quite expensive. Sandwiches come cold, and they aren't that good, so don't recommend

Pros: Oatmeal is tasty

Good to have it at a train station

It's good place for vegans to grab a bite before catching a train. They have many vegan & healthy options and prices are also fine.
My falafel bowl was okay.

wide vegan selection

there are many labelled vegan options. i think all the bowls are vegan and maybe ¾ of their porridges.

i chose the beerenkater which is vegetarian but asked if it could be veganized by removing honey. this was no problem.
the beerenkater was okay. i haven't tried porridge before so i don't really know whether it is normal but it tasted a bit bland and water-y. maybe this was also due to the fact that there was no honey to make it taste sweeter. still, it was hot and therefore nice for dinner at a cold day.

the staff was very friendly.

unfortunately, the only reusable cups they have are from vytal. you need an app to use them and it's more complicated than other reusable container systems, for instance recup. i think therefore less people will choose the reusable containers.

ps: you can also pay with these 0,5€-coupons you get when entering the restroom

Pros: friendly staff, big clearly labelled vegan selection, accept the coupons from the restrooms

Cons: only vytal for reusable containers

Vegane Falafel-Bowl

Die vegane Falafel-Bowl war sehr lecker und die Zutaten frisch. Es ging sehr schnell (optimal bei einem Zwischenstop am Frankfurter Hbf) und das Personal war freundlich. Gerne wieder.

Pros: Vegan, Frische Zutaten, Schnell zubereitet

Guter Kaffee mit Oatly, leckere Wraps

Cappuccino mit Hafermilch (oatly) war sehr lecker. Auch mit Kokosmilch möglich.
Wraps waren sehr lecker - 2 Sorten und eine belegte Stulle mit Grillgemüse sind vegan.
Porridge Angebot sah gut aus, haben wir nicht probiert.

Pros: Vegane Optionen klar erkennbar, Guter Kaffee mit Oatly

Always nice to have around

It’s always nice to have vegan options especially when being in a rush to catch the train at the Frankfurt train station. Haferkater does not disappoint. The staff were super friendly and in no time you grab your food and go. I had the Cesar wrap and oatmilk coffee. Both was great.

Great coffee

I just got a small coffee here. It seems not to be a big deal that I want my order vegan. The staff was friendly and patience even if I came up with a special order ( I love hot chocolate with espresso). You can find the store at the beginning of the train station, at the lower platform numbers.

Pros: Vegan options , Flexible and friendly

Good quick meal to go

Right in the station building around platform 5. There are several clearly labeled vegan snacks and meals (porridge, bowls, sandwiches, cakes).

Ordered the large "Waldbeerkater" porridge for 4.95€ and got 2 cups full. Looking at the coffee prices there, I think I was just lucky, otherwise it would be a bargain for the station area.

The porridge is nice and warm, works well as a lunch or snack. However, mine was also relatively sweet, I expected something healthier with more fresh ingredients.

There was a makeshift sign reading "cash only". Not sure if this is a permanent thing.

Non-vegan as vegan

They tried to sell me a non-vegan as vegan 'Stulle' (sandwich) even though I asked friendly, calm and three times if it's vegan. Then I checked for myself. Store to go with one bench for around ten persons. Inside main central station hall. Coffee, porridge, bowls, lemonades.

Delicious Portidge

I loved getting Porridge on my way to Uni everyday, when that was still possible. The different vegan porridge options are delicious! I'd just wish there'd be less chocolate involved and I am not the biggest fan of the banana bread.

Pros: Delicious vegan options

Fantastic to-go food

A wonderful, mostly vegan variety of foods (delicious porridge, bowls and cakes) as well as spiced hot chocolate and coffee. I love the place and especially for Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof, it's perfect value for money. I'll definitely be back.

Pros: Variety (sweet and savoury) , Super tasty

Cons: No oat milk (at least when I was there)

A whiff of sustainability in the middle of Frankfurts Main Station

Whoever has been to the Frankfurt Main Station knows there is a lot of snack bars. Most of them sell cheap, exchangeable food in plastic boxes. At Haferkater we could actually sit down and eat a fresh, vegan Quinoa bowl from proper ceramic dishes. Many of the main courses are vegan, they also have oat and soy milk for your coffee as well as organic and/or fair trade lemonade. Our waiting time for the train became a joyful experience here.

Pros: vegan options, proper dishes, seating
