alternative atmosphere, great vegan food. - Edit

The atmosphere is very chill and laid back, you can choose a coffee table and couch to have your meal or regular table and chairs. The decor is a bit antique which makes this place so unique. The food is great. The coffee is really good, they foam vegan milks sooo well, which is typically hard to do. The food is great, not the most amazing vegan food in the world, but it's really good and not so expensive. I definitely recommend.

Pros: great food + coffee, friendly service , alternative atmosphere

Cons: sometimes the service is a little slow, bc it'

lovely all vegan restaurant - Edit

We had some burgers and chili for lunch. It was very delicious. For desert we had some of the homemade cake, which was delightful. The restaurant is rather cute and the staff very friendly. We really enjoyed our visit there and definitely recommend this location. It's close to the University and we stopped by after a tour at the close-by flea market.

Pros: lovely all vegan food , nice atmosphere , friendly staff

Good food - atmosphere and service ok - Edit

The food is really good. This is the only vegan cafe in Cologne that serves warm dishes, breakfast and cake. The coffee is good, too.
The Döner is tasty and the burgers looked great though we haven't tried them yet.

Pros: all vegan menue , good food quality

Cons: Only cash - that is a no-go!, slightly shabby (but large) rooms , no outdoor area

Vegan cafe near Köln sud - Edit

I went to Signor Verde a couple of days ago and I ordered a cheseburger. The staff was extremely friendly, they speak english and the burger was really tasty.

I want to go back and get a coffe because they looked impressive. The quantity and quality of the food was very good.

Pros: Pricing, Friendly staff

Recommendation - Edit

We literally fell into "Signor Verde" after leaving the Station "Bahnhof Süd"--it's fair to say, it was our plan to visit this place. Our Hotel had no breakfast options for vegans and just eating something from the next bakery is not the best possibility for the most important meal of the day. We had the "dutch breakfast" with vegan cheese. Everything was fine, delicious and prepared with loving care. The staff was very nice and recommended "Snickers-Torte" after we asked for cupcakes and stuff. It was so good! The cake was soft and moist, the creme an explosion of peanuts, not too sweet, evenly balanced.
I will definitely come back next time in Cologne!

Pros: very friendly staff, everything is vegan, reasonably pricing

Cons: maybe the bikes at the station, if you sit outside

sehr lecker, sehr nett! - Edit

Ich glaube, ich bin noch nie so unglaublich nett bedient und beraten worden. Die Kuchen sind toll und es gibt tolle Teesorten, die jeweils mit der passenden Pflanzenmilch aufgeschäumt werden. Habe schon oft vor dem Laden gestanden und bin nicht reingegangen, weil er von außen irgendwie nicht sehr einladend wirkt und bin froh, dass ich ihn jetzt doch für mich entdeckt habe

Super Burger! - Edit

Sehr gemütliches Restaurant mit nettem Personal. Die Preise sind völlig ok und der Kuchen ist der Hammer!

Pros: Viele vegane Optionen, Kuchen, gute Preise

Top Service! - Edit

they have daily chancing menus, so you can always find fresh vegan food.

Oh, they know how to make a good vegan coffee! Which is not very easy to find. The coffee is also bio and fairtrade.

The service is top, could not be better! Super friendly and helpful. No need to feel bad, if you`re on a special diet(glutenfree etc.), they are doing their best to make your belly full :)

I`d love to enjoy some raw vegan cakes here. Really! They should start to offer some raw options.

But still, it s a great vegan cafe to visit!

Pros: Bio and Fairtrade , Super friendly service, Cosy athmosphere

Cons: No Raw Options

Leider nicht mehr gut - Edit

Ich bin an dem neuen Standort nicht mehr begeistert von Signor Verde. Der Laden hat am neuen Standort viel an Flair verloren. Auch das Essen ist nicht mehr wie früher - ich bekam z.B. vegane Retortenware wie künstliche Tintenfischringe.

Pros: Very friendly stuff

Cons: Quality of food, Location

Great place where you will get beautiful and delicious vegan food.

Ask them anything and they'll give you a hand with whatever they can. In my case with the gluten free options.

Dönerstag are the best days! =D

Yummy cake - Edit

I was only there once, had a snickers cake (shared between 3) and a latte. Wasn't blown away from the cake, but it was yummy. And the staff and atmosphere was very nice.

Pros: nice atmosphere, different milk option for the cofee

Fantastic ice cream! - Edit

Being donnerstag, I went to have their doner - honestly, it wasn't spectacular, and I think I would have preferred having it by itself (filling without the bread). However, it was doner! I had doner with chai latte (mit havermilch), and took away chocolate-peanut ice-cream with an apple streusel.

The atmosphere of the place is really cozy, which I found surprising given they were located right outside a train station (Koln sud) but that makes for great accessibility. The owner (a really thin guy) and his staff were extremely friendly and warm, and I definitely felt very comfortable in the place.

Let's get to the really good stuff: ice-cream (Eis). I couldn't decide between their famous Erdnuss and the usual-suspect Schokolade, so I decided to have both.

Best combination ever. I would fly from London just to have their ice-cream. The chocolate was a better kind, ie. not too sweet and having that bitter cocoa taste. The peanut was the king though: salty, sweet, light and just being so dangerously moreish. The two worked well together, and I found myself wondering if I should go back and get more!

The price was extremely good too (but then, I do live in London), with everything coming up to 12.50 EUR. Remember, this is for a massive doner, chai latte, two scoops of ice-cream, and an apple streusel slice. Not to mention great service.

Not quite baklust for me in terms of food, but their ice-cream was definitely better than anything I have tried in London. Also, they are completely vegan! If I return, I will update the review based on their other food!

Pros: Excellent ice-cream, decent hot food, Great value , Warm and friendly staff

Yummy food - Edit

Was there with some colleagues and had several yummy things. Only remember the curry sausage though, which was received very well even by my non-vegetarian friends.

Definitely worth visiting!

Nettes Cafe - Edit

Ich hatte einen Soya Macchiato und ein dickes Stück Schoko-Kirsch-Kuchen - beides sehr lecker. Schöne Atmosphäre, der Inhaber ist super nett und sympathisch, die Bedienung auch. Komme auf jeden Fall wieder!

Pros: leckere Kuchen, im Sommer gibt's Eis!, nettes Personal

Best vegan location in town - Edit

Signor Verde sets the standards! Erik, the owner, is very passionate about vegan food. Döner on Dönerstag (thursday) and vegan burgers are my favorites. The portions could be bigger but the taste is in general awesome. The soy capucchino is the best one I ever had.

Pros: excellent food, 100% vegan and mostly organic, fair trade coffee and tea avaialble

Vegan, bio, super freundlich und unfassbar schön - Edit

Ich war mit meinen omnivoren Eltern, Oma und Onkel im Signor Verde und alle, inklusive mein Vater (ich konnte es kaum glauben), waren hellauf begeistert. Ich habe mittlerweile einige vegane Restaurants im Bundesgebiet ausprobiert - in Berlin, Regensburg, Erlangen und nun Köln - und kann nicht genug erwähnen, wie glücklich ich war das Signor Verde erleben zu dürfen. Das Essen: Vegan UND bio und SOOOOO lecker (wir hatten Chili sin carne, Getränke, "Mett"-Brot, Salat, diverse Nachtische - Kuchen, Dessertcreme und Eis). Die Bedienung, Köchin und Besitzer: Alle super freundlich und aufgeschlossen, hilfs- und gesprächsbereit. Und die Einrichtung: So unfassbar schön und genau mein Geschmack mit dunklerem Holz und Jugendstillämpchen überall, wunderschönen, antiken, bunten (Decken!)fenstern, Klavier, Sofas, Eis- und Getränketheke und einem Winkel, wo nochmal Sitzgelegenheiten sind. Sogar die Toilette ist wunderschön. Wir haben all fünf das Signor Verde zufrieden und überglücklich verlassen und bereuen tu ich nur, nicht in Köln zu wohnen. Danke, dass ihr vegan und bio und sogar fair trade essen gehen so genüsslich und vergnüglich gestaltet habt und damit meiner Familie gezeigt habt, dass dies möglich ist! Das schönste Restauranterlebnis, was ich je in meinem Leben erleben durfte. Marion Hammer

Pros: Essen, Einrichtung, Personal

Very disappointing - Edit

I was there 3 times, and the first two was just nothing impressive, if not a bit boring food. But the last time I went there because I was craving for a GOOD cake. Arriving there they only had one "peanut tarte", which was a dry sweet cake with salty peanuts on top. My friend ordered crepes, and they served the crepes that were standing there for hours with cheap vegan cream.

I haven't tried the new vegan places yet, but I'm glad this is not the only vegan place in Cologne anymore. I don't like it at all.
