Top 5 vegan shops in Berlin

While it’s not that hard to find good quality veggies in Berlin, it might be a little trickier to discover some proper animal product alternatives - be it vegan 'cheezes', 'tofurkys', nutritional yeasts or much more. While I was scouting for my VeganBerlin map, Marika from the great vegan cafe Plant Base has been searching for other lovely vegan locations. After compiling a list of the best vegan shops in Berlin we would like to share them with you. We’ve put together a list of the best vegan shops in Berlin for vegan food shopping (apart from your local farmer’s markets) - for vegans and also all those looking to lead a more sustainable lifestyle.

My lovely VeganBerlin map



Tucked away at the forefront of Zora Supermarket in the bustling Kreuzberg neighborhood, a hidden gem awaits vegan and vegetarian enthusiasts. The market's quick food station exclusively dishes out vegetarian offerings, with a standout selection of samosas that are both affordable and acclaimed as some of the best in Berlin. During the weekends, the menu expands to include exquisite treats such as samosa chaat and pani puri, complemented by aromatic chai. Arrive early to indulge in these culinary delights, as they are known to sell out swiftly, especially given their exceptional value.


Kottbusser Damm 93, 10967 Berlin (Kreuzberg), www.zorastore.eu, +49 30 82 40 95 70 Station: U8 Schönleinstraße, Mon-Sat 9:00–22:00
