Berlin's Vegan Brunch and More

One of the best things to do on a Sunday is to go out to brunch. In Berlin, brunch is an institution, and it runs from about 10 a.m. until early evening. These all-you-can eat banquets are reasonably priced (8-13€) with some great food. There are bunches specializing in Asian, Russian, Turkish, African, South American, and even German cuisine.

I recently discovered Veganz, a restaurant offering a vegan brunch with dishes from around the world. (It's not just Tofu!) Located in Prenzlauer Berg, Veganz also operates a full-scale vegan supermarket selling fresh fruits and vegetables, ready-to-eat food, cosmetics, household supplies, pet food/supplies, coffee/teas, and bakery items. And what's surprising, the prices are comparable to those you would find at the local supermarket!

Veganz offers cooking classes, workshops, film presentations, yoga instruction, and seminars. In December, they're offering a class on how to prepare classic Christmas dishes. Finally, Veganz has recipes and a newsletter that you can download from their website. Veganz is located at Schiverlbeiner Straße 34, Prenzlauer Berg, not far from U-Bahn Schönhauser Alle.
