A variety of vegan cakes - Edit

I love it that they have quite a few really good vegan options. Didn't try the coffee though.

Perfect pick me up for shoppers - Edit

The Hackershe Market area of Berlin is a great shopping area so this cafe is ideally situated. There's no shortage of lovely vegan teashops in Berlin but you do often have to hop on a bus to get to them! I had a vanilla soy latte and a chocolate and avocado cake and both were delicious, the cake was so moist. Most of the baked goods were vegan but a warning! Katje sweets are rarely vegan, they are all vegetarian but most have a beeswax coating to give them a glossy finish. This coffee shop sells a large range of Katje sweets and merchandise but it's only the non glossy sweets that are vegan, such as the Swedish fish and the sour jellies - look out for 'bienenwachs' on the ingredients and avoid those products if you are looking for vegan sweets.

Pros: Good selection of vegan cakes, Friendly staff, Good location

Cons: Most Katje sweets have beeswax

not many vegan options - Edit

When I visited the cafe at around 10am they only had one vegan option -an apple or rhubarbs cake- which is not my taste so I am not really able to say smth about the taste. It's a pitty that there weren't more vegan options cause the cupcakes looked delicious and the place is nice to sit down

Pros: easy to reach at hackescher markt

Cons: not many vegan options

surprisingly good find! - Edit

I worked at Hackescher Markt without ever realising this place existed - as another user wrote, the cartoon like aesthetic put me off so I never noticed they had vegan options.

Having said that, the staff are lovely, the cakes are very good (especially the lemon poppy seed loaf), the cookies are fantastic, as is the fruit streusel, and they have free samples of their gummy sweets. They also have lots of un-vegan options so look at the labels before ordering

Bad points, no bathrooms and no wifi

Pros: food, staff

Cons: no bathrooms or wifi

Best peanutbutter cookie ever! - Edit

The day I visited Café Grün Ohr, I didn't think there were many vegan options - about half of their cakes are vegan, but not the cupcakes and the brownies (and their chai-mix isn't vegan either). But because of another review from here, I tried the peantbutter cookie, and wow! I would come back only for this cookie!!
They also have a machine that can make a candy piece formed/designed by you. According to their website it is 100% vegan. Pretty cool....

Small but nice selection of vegan sweet treats - Edit

Hi came across this coffee place by chance! Although I really wasn't attracted by their cartoon-like visual identity, I am glad I still took a pick at their selection of sweet treats.

They serves a range of cakes/biscuits/candies, some vegan, some not. I got about 4-5 different (vegan) treats and they were all very tasty- even two days after buying them. I recommend the little marbled cake in particular!

Pros: Different vegan treats

Cons: Very small sitting area

Amazing! - Edit

Small, cute café with vegan options. The cinnamon roll was super delicious! Unfortunately the cupcakes aren't vegan, but there are other things which you can choose like cinnamon rolls, brownies, banana bread,...

Lovely Bakery with Sweet Shop - Edit

Cafe Grun-Ohr is a very pretty cafe with a couple of tables to sit outside. As you go in there is a huge display of amazing cupcakes in front of you - Unfortunately these (and the brownies) are not vegan!
Once I had got over that disappointment I saw that there was still a choice of 3 or 4 other cakes which are vegan.
I had a lovely raspberry muffin, but the blueberry ones looked just as good.

Vegan oasis at non-vegan tourist spot - Edit

Very friendly, small, clean café in the middle of main tourist spot "Hackescher Markt" where no other vegan cafés exist. Fine quality vegan shortbread, muffins, cookies, also some juices, cucumber water, etc. They also sell 'Katjes' gummy bears (small flagship store). Also lotsa non-vegan cupcakes. Two seats outside, around ten inside.

Pros: friendly, an oasis at tourist spot, fine vegan cookies

Best cinnamon roll you will ever have! - Edit

I randomly stumbled upon this little gem while I was exploring the city center of Berlin. Actually I wanted to check out the gummy bears, because Katjes is popular in Germany for their vegetarian products, long before the trend of veganism started. I found out that their gummy bears aren't vegan friendly, because all of them contain honey, but they offer a wide selection of pastries, which are mostly vegan! You should definitely try their peanut-butter cookies, they are delicious and melt on your tongue. My highlight are definitely the cinnamon rolls, which are so juicy and sweet that I wish for a second stomach, just to eat some more of them. ;)

Pros: Staff very informed, Fair prices, Cinnamon rolls?!
