There’s something about sitting in a café and watching the people go by. When in Paris, it’s one of life’s simple pleasures: with all the boulangeries lining the streets, it can be hard to pass by without pressing your nose against the windows. Here in Berlin, slowly but surely, Pannierstraße in Neukölln becomes my favorite place to go for a sweet treat! From huge cakes to small delicacies, and now at the French café Croissanterie even a very very good Croissant.
Isn’t it amazing how instagram evolved into a source to discover new food places – if I hadn’t found this place’s stream, I might have never found it. Because when do I find myself in Friedrichshain? Not very often.
It’s like a little heaven for lovers of vegan clean food, with a beautifully styled interior and a menu to make you drool. Just the name I can’t even pronounce – La-auma? Lauma? La-ooma? But then, what’s in a name?
There seems to be a never ending supply of new cafés opening every week in Berlin. And while we definitely have our favorite places to enjoy a cup of coffee, we’re also happy to try the new ones. Especially, when they offer something original and are located just around the corner from the office on Oranienstraße. As new and exciting as the newest addition on busy Oranienstraße: Charlie’s Asian Bakery & Coffee.
Oh the veggie and vegan burgers, what a high art cuisine, tried by many, failed by most, and mastered only by a chosen few. While nearly every burger place in town also has a vegetarian and oftentimes even vegan burger on their menu, that doesn’t mean the choice of good ones would be plenty. Rather the opposite. There’s also no correlation of meat-grilling-talents and vegan artistry, a place serving a great beef-burger doesn’t necessarily (or possibly never?) also has the skills to do a good veggie one…
Although many of you might know this blog as a source for hunting down Berlin’s Best Burger, a have-to-eat-list of the best ice cream and elaborate bread tastings, what is actually also close to my heart is healthy vegan food. Not so much the vegan fast food, which seems to be had on every corner of Neukölln and Friedrichshain (granted, stellar exceptions exist), but the delicious clean vegan food. Not only am I trying to push the popularity by doing my superfood breakfasts at Markthalle Neun, but also by collecting reviews of the nicest places for vegan food in Berlin. And one of them is finally on the blog: Café Vux.
