It’s the perfect place to meet friends or pop in and enjoy a latte and a sweet cinnamon roll while catching up on e-mails.

Their brunch menu features the perfect blend of sweet and savory — fruit and fig-topped acai bowls, perfectly grilled lemon chick’n sandwiches, and sinful pastries, but what you can’t miss are their pancakes. These golden baby cakes are topped with house-made whipped cream, maple syrup, berries, and more — they’re almost too pretty to eat!

#3 Pêle-Mêle

Innstraße 26, 12043 Berlin, Germany
The inspiration for this café comes from its name — Pêle-Mêle, which means “mixed up,” although that can carry a negative connotation, there is nothing even remotely negative here! The mixed-up mindset comes from their interest in featuring a globally-inspired menu to highlight the beautiful cuisines from around the world.

A tantalizing breakfast menu is served all week and features a full English breakfast complete with white beans and toast, along with house-made granola, pastries, and more. On Sunday, you won’t want to miss their giant vegan brunch buffet loaded with fresh salad, scrambled tofu, desserts, and house-made surprises. They say you can eat until your stomach bursts! 

#4 Plant Base

Prenzlauer Allee 208, 10405 Berlin, Germany
Not only is this a terrific place to get your sweet and savory breakfast fix, but it’s also a small bookshop and event space (they host vegan cooking classes, book club events, and more)! All week long, you can wander in here for a jolt of caffeine, along with yummy tofu scramble and toast, fruit-packed acai bowls, breakfast bagel sandwiches, and more!

After breakfast, if you’re in the mood for a treat, you’re in the right place. They also have a fantastic lineup of house-made cakes that rotate regularly — raspberry-topped cheesecake, carrot cake, cupcakes, and more!

#5 Velicious Café

Lenbachstraße 13B, 10245 Berlin, Germany
Important note: As of July 2023, they’re open Thursday – Sunday.
Right in the heart of Friedrichshain is this quaint little café that is well known for its vegan pastries and cakes but also has a healthy breakfast lineup to help you kick start the day. If you’re in the mood for something savory, check out their Vurst breakfast which comes with two house-made rolls, sausage, tofu, and veggies. If you’re more of a fan of sweet things, you can’t go wrong with a giant bowl of their house-made muesli with fresh fruit or a house-made croissant and jam. 

#6 Café Morgenrot

Kastanienallee 85, 10435 Berlin, Germany
A little unique and counter-culture is an excellent way to describe this vegan café tucked into Berlin’s trendy Prenzlauer Berg. The café operates as a collective, meaning there are no hierarchies among the staff, and everyone’s wages are the same. They’re working to create a space free of hateful and negative speech, where everyone can safely share ideas and culture while enjoying delicious vegan food.

Every Saturday and Sunday, you can roll in here to enjoy their special brunch menu filled with a mix of brunchy faves — spicy Mexican-inspired beans and toast, house-made sausage, mango yogurt, and more.

You’ll want to roll out of bed early on Saturday and Sunday to head here! You’ll be smitten with their colorful spread of veggie-topped toasts, hearty English breakfast spread with all the fixins’ and cute mini stacks of pancakes topped with plum compote. If you’re in the sharing mood, they’ve got something special for you; check out the Brettina spread, complete with multiple toasts, mini pancakes, tofu scramble, mac-n-cheeze, and much more (you might not want to share it after you see it, there is an option for one person if you don’t want to share)!
