Travelling Sophie: Berlin part 4! All vegan!

on 10/11/2012

Today, we visited the area of Kreuzberg. Here live a lot of Turkish Berliners. You don’t find that many cool & hip clothing shops here, more larger supermarket’s & Turkish shops. It is a multicultural area. In this area, I wanted to go to a vegan café called Freckles. It is near the lovely Bergmanstrasse. A cool street filled with lovely alternative clothing shops, restaurants & eating-cafés. Vegan eating café Freckles, is located in a side street of this lovely street. Freckles, Nostitzstrasse 33, 10965 Berlin. 

Freckles vegan café!

Very small vegan café but very cosy!

When we arrived, there was only was kuchen & vegan desserts on the menu. On their website, they say that they also sell vegan salads, vegan cookies, etc. We didn’t see that on the menu. I ordered a Freckles café latte with soymilk & ginger sirup in it: So good, so tasty,…& a big slice of the chocolate cake with lovely soy cream butter layers topped with a speculaas drizzled icing! So freaking delicious! MMMMMMM! You wouldn’t believe it, that butter cream was vegan! You could choose between several plant-based milks for your café latte’s, like almond milk, soy milk & hazelnut milk.

Me being very happy with all the vegan deliciousness!

So good, so tasty!

My husband Peter ordered this: A Freckles café latte too, also made with soy milk but with & marshmallow sirup in it! He chose a piece of the chocolate nougat torte, all vegan! 🙂

A slice of the vegan chocolate nougat torte, topped with a chocolate ganache! Doesn’t it look very yummy?

The 2 Freckles café latte costed each: 3.30€. My chocolate speculaas cake costed me: 3.20€ & Peter’s slice of nougat & chocolate torte costed 3.40€. So in total our bill was: 13.20€. It was so worth it!

A few days later, we visited a vegan supermarket & café, called Veganz. I really wanted to go there. We had to take a few U-bahn’s before we arrived there. The nearest U-bahn is: Schönhauser Allee. Veganz, Schivelbeiner strasse 34, 10437 Berlin. Open? Supermarket: Monday till Saturday: from 8 AM till 9 PM. Sunday’s closed / Café: Open? Monday till Saturday: from 8 AM till 9 PM. Sunday’s from 9 AM till 6 PM. Yes! I wanted to go there for a very long time & bought a few vegan top products too. ( post + pics later on a separate post!!!! ). It was a smaller vegan supermarket but they had tons of vegan goodies, edible & non-edible, like toothpaste, body milks, etc. They also sold organic veggies & fruits. They also sold dairy-free & vegan advent calendars. How cool is that?

Veganz café & supermarket! The café was too small & not cosy at all 😦

Lactose-free chocolate spreads & carob spreads too, all vegan!

All vegan So delicious coconut ice-creams, we don’t get that brand in Belgium!

All vegan sausages, in different flavours & tofu & vegan spreads! Yum!

All different vegan whipped toppings!
Soy whip, coconut whip & rice whip!

All vegan Vantastic Foods chocolates! Lactose-free, Vegan & Gluten-Free too! 1 bar of 100 gr costed 3.69€! MMM!

Fantastic vegan chocolate bars : Moo free & Stevia sweetened Belgian chocolate bars! I bought the left chocolate bar!

All vegan & some Gluten-Free bars!
What a choice too!

I bought 2 vegan chocolate chip cookies & they tasted so good!
They were a bit crumbly but so amazing!

Me being happy!

I also bought some other vegan goodies but I will make a post separate from this one, on these vegan edible goodies, after the Berlin-posts!

So, I hoped you loved reading my post about Berlin & my culinary escapades.

  19. Juliana says:

    I never thought that you have so many vegan choices…great!
    Thanks for this nice post Sophie and hope you are enjoying your week 🙂

  20. Velva says:

    Sophie, a couple of years ago, I decided for one week, I would go completely vegan-just for the experience. What I discovered that just 100% vegan is too difficult and not easy to manage. However, with vegan foods are incorporated into an otherwise healthy diet, it is very beneficial.

    I really enjoyed this post. Thanks for sharing it with us.


    • Sophie33 says:

      I have done that too. But my hubby didn’t agree with me! It is hard to go vegan all the way: You can never again eat lovely cheeses, eggs, etc!

  21. Blond Duck says:

    I wish we had a vegan restaurant like that here! I’d love some dairy free options for dessert!

    • Sophie33 says:

      If you want, I make a lot of vegan desserts on my blog, categorized under vegan! Check them out, my friend! I am lactose-intolerant & that’s why vegan desserts interest me enormously!

  22. Candy says:

    great photos – I love that your clothes and the “chocolate cake with lovely soy cream butter layers topped with a speculaas drizzled icing” are matching 🙂
