Despite Germany's meaty reputation, it isn't such a bad place for vegetarians and vegans. Our survival guide for vegetarians in Germany can help navigate the most traditional restaurants, but in Berlin keeping meat-free is hardly a struggle. Among the many "regular" restaurants with vegetarian options, there are exclusive temples to the veg. Here is an extensive yet not exhaustive list of the best vegetarian/vegan destinations in Berlin.

In my post on how to survive as a vegetarian or vegan in Germany, I say ethnic food is usually a safe bet, but that doesn't often extend to Chinese. Luckily, Tianfuzius solves this problem. A vegetarian-only, Szechuan-inspired restaurant, dishes are beautifully recreated to suit the tofu bunch. Veggies will delight in the long list of delicious menu options.

Hip and meat-free, Cookies Cream is a high-end vegetarian restaurant near Berlin's center behind the Westin Grand.

If Cookies Cream seems too cool for school, Chipps is the low-key, low-cost alternative you're looking for. The menu changes weekly with a vegan option always available. And though this is a vegetarian restaurant, meat can be added so you can bring carnivores with you.

A vegan utopia exists just off of Warschauer S-Bahnhof. Atop a Veganz grocery store, next to vegan deli Goodies and just steps away from vegan Avesu shoes perches The Bowl with a spectacular view over Warschauer bridge.
With a philosophy of "Nature is our guru", they follow the guidelines of clean eating with raw, gluten-free, sugar-free bowls. Breakfast could be chia pudding, order Brussels sprouts with cashew cream for lunch and devour a Macro Bowl with every super food imaginable for dinner.

If vegan crêpes and gluten-free galette make your heart sing, this musically inclined cafe has you covered. Try their savory Erykah Badu (chickpea curry and homemade chutney) or a sweet Fiona Apple (fresh fruits and agave syrup).
If you prefer something you can hold with two hands, their vegetable, Seitan or Soy burgers come with toppings like beetroot and hummus to caramelized onions and BBQ sauce. Order a craft beer to wash down a satisfying meal.
To fit into their vibe, they also kindly offer a playlist.

Cafe V proves that a vegetarian menu doesn't need to be boring. With a menu that changes every week and high-quality ingredients, even meat-eaters will leave with a full belly. That belly just might be full of Seitan-Schnitzel, vegan pizza, spinach Maultaschen and completely vegetarian Sunday brunch.

While many vegans are happy to down beer after beer at the Biergarten, they may find the food offerings a lot less appetizing. Wilder Hase solves this conundrum with proper bunny food for humans near the wilds of legendary club Berghain. Most food is prepared at the popular vegan fast food imbiss Fast Rabbit (worth a stop in itself), and ranges from "superfood" salads to hummus and cashew-based cheese spreads. Vegan drunks can even join the rest of Berlin in its late-night Döner tradition with the Kung Fu Döner of brown rice, sweet and sour sauce and deep-fried soy schnitzel.
