The best 6 Leipzig vegan restaurant you need to try:
#1 Mein Liebes Frollein
This delightful little cafe has plenty of comfortable seating, friendly staff, decent wifi and a clean yet quirky design. Stop by for a cake, as they always have at least one vegan option, and almost all of their hot drinks can be made vegan. Sometimes, there’s also a vegan savory dish available on the lunch menu. It’s the perfect spot to stop and relax for a minute, or even to get some work done.
With an all vegan, organic and seasonal menu, this place is a cut above the rest. During the week, it’s a great place to experience their international menu, while during the weekends, they serve hearty German-style breakfasts made vegan. Be sure to make a reservation if you want to be guaranteed a spot, as it’s popular for a reason.
This tiny place serves high quality vegan fast food. The menu consists of customizable burgers, sandwiches, salads and a few other changing dishes such as noodles or soups. It is perfect for a quick but filling bite. They often have locally made cakes, so make sure to leave some room for dessert too! During summer months, they have extra seating outside. However, if it’s busy and you may have to order take away. This shouldn’t be a problem as there are several nice parks to sit nearby.
#4 Eisdiele Brakers
Here you can find all the classic ice cream flavors and much more! Almost half of the flavors are vegan, either sorbets or non-dairy milk based, cones they use are also vegan. The simple but satisfying soy-based chocolate ice cream is the best. Great option for families in a Leipzig hotel that want to go out for a treat!
At Zest they change menu several times a month, depending on season and which fresh ingredients are available. Usually you can choose between soups, salads, starters, mains and desserts. There is a lot of choice, you will not stay hungry, that’s for sure.
#6 Die Vleischerei
Both vegetarians and meat-eaters described the Vöner (vegan Döner) as succulent, well-seasoned – just delicious Vöner! Like at a traditional kebab shop, the Vleischerei serves flatbread filled with veggies, sauces but topped off with seitan instead of meat. Die Vleischerei, is a play with German word “Fleischerei” (meaning butcher’s shop), the “V” at the beginning stands for vegan.
