Are you curious about the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Munich or what foods you can eat as a vegetarian in Munich? If you think Munich is all about pork knuckle, schnitzel, veal, and bratwurst, I’m about to blow your mind. Germany is one of Europe’s best countries for vegans and vegetarians. With 10% of their population identifying as vegetarian and nearly 2% of their population identifying as vegan (higher than any other European country), Germany is an excellent place for vegetarians. So, it makes sense that Munich has incredible vegan and vegetarian restaurants and incredible plant-based options. Whether you are looking for a fancy night out at Munich’s top vegan restaurant, a Michelin-recommended spot with something for everyone, traditional vegan German food, the best vegan pizza, or something sweet, this guide has you covered. 

Germans are relatively mindful, and environmental awareness is a huge driving factor in the rise in vegetarian options and overall green living. The best part is much of their vegan food is sourced locally, organic, or seasonal to maximize the environmental benefits. In this guide, I’ll invite you to my favorite vegan restaurants in Munich, share my top vegetarian dishes with options for all budgets, and suggest some traditional Bavarian food that is vegan/vegetarian so you don’t have to miss out on all the cultural fun. At the end, I’ll help you learn how to ask for no meat in German and recognize German words for common meats.

Munichs best vegetarian and vegan restaurants and food

As a local vegetarian who eats vegan when I can, in Munich, I’ve eaten my way through most of Munich’s all-vegan restaurants and sampled hundreds of vegetarian dishes. Every year, Munich becomes more diverse and progressive, making it a top contender for the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants around Europe. 

Make sure you pin this post to your favorite plant-focused Pinterest board. And, if you are planning a trip to Munich, don’t miss my other sustainability-focused and mindful guides to the city.

Munich’s Best Vegan Restaurants

Being vegetarian in Munich is relatively easy, but with the Germans loving dairy products, being vegan is a bit harder. In my seven years living in Munich, the number of vegan options has increased dramatically, and almost every restaurant has at least one vegan option. But, if you follow this guide, you’ll be eating more than sad side salads and enjoying some of Munich’s best vegan restaurants. 

Dr. Drooley

This is hands down the best vegan pizza I’ve ever had in my life. In fact, it is so good, that I literally eat it every single Friday night. It has become routine for my husband and I to order one of their delicious pizzas and enjoy a bit of vegan gluttony to ring on the weekend. They use cashew cheese that is creamy and delicious. You can get other toppings: crispy vegan bacon bites, spicy vegan sausage, vegan kimchi, and so much more. Whether you are vegan or not, this might be the best pizza in Munich.

Emmi’s Kitchen

Another favorite of mine in Munich is Emmi’s Kitchen, which is nestled away on a quiet street. It shares an Innenhof- or inner courtyard- with a yoga studio and has lovely outdoor seating with a shaded natural awning. Their simple menu focuses on salad and superfood bowls, vegan gourmet burgers, and a breakfast menu. My favorite thing to order is Quinoa Avocado Chicks n’ Ginger, a salad bowl stuffed with chickpeas, carrots, spinach, quinoa, seeds, avocado, and more. I always pair it with a vegan oat milk chai latte and a bio-organic juice. For breakfast, they serve tofu scrambles, vegan pancakes, and more.

Munich Vegetarian and Vegan Food Emmi's Kitchen

All their ingredients are fresh, often locally sourced, and clean so that you can enjoy deliciously good vegan food!


Sauvage is an all-vegan Asian tapas restaurant that does not disappoint. This is the ideal place to bring a group of friends, so you can sample anything and everything on the menu without worrying if it’s vegan or not. Of course, it is perfect for a solo or date night as well, with an upscale atmosphere and quality of food. You can always order their larger mains if you aren’t in the mood for sharing. Indulge in thick spinach udon noodles, and get all your favorite Asian-inspired foods without animal products!


The front of Siggis is a vegan bakery with grab-and-go sandwiches, cupcakes, and other pastries. A sit-down restaurant is in the back if you want a more formal dinner. Siggis has a seasonal menu that rotates to feature fresh and local ingredients. The menu lists salads, bowls, pasta dishes, BBQ tempeh, and my favorite – a vegan club sandwich. They have vegan bio wine on the menu. The staff here are very friendly and incredibly mindful, so feel free to strike up a convo and get more vegan tips from them.

Max Pett

Max Pett is quite popular as it is one of the few places that does traditional German food in a vegan style. So, if you’re looking for a vegan schnitzel, vegan knödle, etc., this is the place for you. They do vegan “cheese”, or käse, quite well, and their salad with vegan feta is quite tasty. They even serve something that resembles vegan baked cheese raclette, a Swiss Alpine dish.  For lunch, they have a daily rotating menu embracing various cuisines, including Indian, Balkan, and Middle Eastern food, enabling you to try traditional vegan foods from around the world. This restaurant shows that you can keep traditions alive while doing your part to reduce animal cruelty and be environmentally friendly. Not all vegan food has to be salad and quinoa; we can have vegan cheese-covered french fries if we want! Reservations are encouraged for dinner.Max Pett Munich Vegan Food

Fun Fact: This place was named after Germany’s Max Pett, who was responsible for the clean city and incredible drinking water Munich has today. He pushed the limits in health and sanitation and set the bar for European cities. Munich is one of the cleanest cities in Europe, and we have him to thank! He also had a no-alcohol policy for health reasons, and to honor this, Max Pett does not serve alcohol or promote drinking culture, which makes it an excellent option for Muslims who want to partake in German culture.


This place focuses on international comfort food like chili “cheese” fries, vegan gyros, vegan buffalo wings, jackfruit burgers, hummus, and even some of your German favorites like vegan schnitzel. I like to come here when I miss dishes from home like buffalo wings, but I can eat them guilt and meat-free! Bodhi was Bavaria’s first vegan Wirsthaus, opening the door for a booming vegan scene. It’s a great place to indulge in all your favorite comfort foods.

Cafe Katzentemple

A vegan place that supports cats, yes, please! All the food is vegan and homemade with love. Katzentemple, as you guessed, has cats or Katze in German. All cats here are rescued and supported by their lovely owners. Come snuggle cats and eat a vegan breakfast, lunch, or dinner.


We often go here for my birthday since Gratitude is a finer dining establishment. Here, you can get several courses of vegan food paired with organic wine. You can also order á la carte for a less formal event. Their menu is seasonally rotating, so you never know what you’ll get. Still, some of the best dishes I’ve ordered are a stuffed avocado with a southwestern flair, a shared hummus appetizer, and vegan cheesecake for dessert. The restaurant is small and famous so you should consider making a reservation.

Gratitude Vegan cafe Munich

Tushita Teahouse

This cozy little tea house serves dozens of fresh, hot, loose-leaf teas with your favorite vegan cakes, sandwiches, bowls, and snacks to go alongside it. It is excellent for catching up with a friend for lunch or warming up on a cold winter day. Many of their teas are organic, and you can stock up for your hotel or home.

Soy Vegan

Soy Vegan is a Vietnamese place with all vegan options. I love coming here with a group of girlfriends. We order their tapas and share plates, stuffing ourselves with some great Vietnamese food without worrying about what ingredients might be hiding in the food. The ambiance of the dining experience is upscale chic, which is hard to find in a good vegan restaurant. I encourage you to dress up a bit, order a cocktail, and order one of everything.

Secret Garden

Eating vegan sushi in Munich probably wasn’t on your bingo list, but trust me – it’s worth it! Secret Garden is tucked away in a small alley off Viktualienmarkt. You’ll feel like you’ve left Munich as soon as you enter. This up-scale restaurant serves rolls that are so over-the-top you’ll think you are eating real gourmet sushi – well, you are, just without the fish. I mean, they pull out all the stops with the dry ice and presentation. Sit back and relax and order a few rolls, soup, curry, or other Asian delights, knowing everything is vegan!

Erbil’s Vegan & Mediterranean

Erbils is an all-vegan restaurant serving some of the best Turkish and Mediterranean foods. Indulge in a pide with vegan “cheese”, or try their Borek, which is a favorite of mine. Germany is known for its delicious Mediterranean street foods, and visiting Erbils means you don’t have to miss out on all the goodness just for being vegan!

Querbeet Food – Food Truck

If you’re into the food truck scene, watch for the bright red Querbeet food truck. You’ll find them at Christmas markets, festivals, events, and parking around the city. They have fantastic ratatouille, falafel, and couscous.

Munich’s Best Vegetarian Restaurants

While Munich already has excellent all-vegan restaurants, dozens more dedicated vegetarian restaurants exist. The great thing about my list of top vegetarian restaurants in Munich is they all have great vegan options. So, these are great restaurants to visit whether you are vegan or vegetarian.

Munich vegan food


Vegelangelo is a semi-fancy vegan and vegetarian establishment. All of their vegetables and fruit are grown organically and are usually fresh and in season. They only serve 3- or 4-course meals on Friday and Saturday with optional wine pairings. All dishes are hand-made to order, so expect to wait and enjoy a good dinner conversation. This is the perfect restaurant for a unique experience in Munich and to take a friend or a date to enjoy long conversations and excellent vegetarian cuisine. 

This place only accepts cash or EC Karte (German bank card).

Green Beetle

Green Beetle has to be one of the best restaurants in Munich! This is a Michelin-recommended restaurant featuring all vegetarian and vegan options. While this is a fine dining experience, the ambiance is approachable, with rustic and natural wooden decors. Enjoy a full course set menu serving whatever is in season and local. If you have heard of the famous Käfer in Munich, this is their sister restaurant serving all vegetarian and natural food! Dine here for an indulgent experience.

Sanktannas Alpine Eatery

If you came to Munich craving hearty alpine dishes, head to Sanktannas. This alpine eatery has traditional dishes of the German, Austrian, and Italian Alps, including Knödle, Kasspressknödle, soups, pasta dishes, and more! My favorite part about this restaurant is the cozy interior, which makes you feel like you’ve been transported to a Bavarian mountain hut!

Munich Vegan and Vegetarian Food

Prinz Myshkin

The original and first vegan and vegetarian cafe in Munich, but maybe not the best. Plenty of better options have come up in Munich if you ask me, but they do the job. The decor is the best part, and their hip, modern dining space is relaxing and spacious. They have the most extensive menu of any of the vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Munich, so if you’re looking for everything from vegan spaghetti and meatballs, vegetarian pizza, vegetarian Indian food, to Caribbean salad, this is a great place to go.

Wagners Cafe

This small cafe and superfood bowl restaurant along the Isar is perfect for a fresh snack in the middle of the day. Order coffee with your acai banana bowl, and people watch at one of their cozy chairs facing the window. They also have vegetarian and vegan salads and smoothies. My favorite thing to order is their acai bowl with coconut cream for delicious and nutritious vegan food!

Munich vegan food Wagners Cafe

Frischfutter München

Pre-made and quick (but hot) vegan and vegetarian options are what you’ll find at Frischfutter. The best part about this location is the focus on sustainable business practices from energy reduction plastic, and waste reduction. They also try to reduce artificial ingredients and don’t add extra sugar to their food. This is a healthy place through and through. They have lots of bowls on the menu. In winter, try their hot vegan chili; in the summer, go light with a Buddha Bowl. They have lots of gluten-free options as well.


Noams opened up in my old neighborhood not too long ago, and they have quickly skyrocketed to become one of Munich’s favorite vegetarian restaurants. That also means they are pretty busy, so avoid the lunch and brunch crowd if possible. My favorite thing is the rice noodle bowl with pomegranate seeds, fresh veggies, and mint! You can enjoy porridge or try their loaded sweet potato bread topped with hummus or avocado for breakfast. The food here is so tasty and fresh. Take it to go and enjoy your meal in the nearby graveyard – it is what I used to do! 

Restaurants with Options for Everone!

These restaurants don’t focus on vegetarian or vegan food. Still, they have various flavorful options to make any vegan/vegetarian and their meat-eating comrades happy. Munich has a large African, Vietnamese, and Middle Eastern population. So, you will find many excellent Vietnamese restaurants with vegan tofu buns, Middle Eastern places with superb hummus, and African dining with saucy veggie stew and flatbread. So, try something outside the box and enjoy Munich’s multicultural cuisine.


Zwickel is such an excellent place for many reasons. “Ein Pflanzerl und ein Bier bitte” is what this place embodies. Means they serve traditional German meatballs (Pflanzerl) and beer (Bier), which is an iconic part of historic Viktualienmarkt, where you will find this cozy restaurant. But, the best part is that they have two vegetarian pfanzerl dishes. So, you can take a bite and enjoy traditional German without the meat, while any of your non-vegetarian traveling companions can try the authentic dish! This is the perfect blending of two works that is sure to make everyone happy.

Zwickle Vegetarian food in Munich

Dean and David

This is a super casual grab-and-go restaurant with kiosks and restaurants around the entire city of Munich – including the central train station. They have vegan hot paninis on wheat bread, vegetarian flatbread wraps, salads, soups, bowls, smoothies, and more. I always stock up on my Dean and David before boarding a train and often order takeaway from them – as their boxes are mostly cardboard, reducing their plastic waste.

Makula Afrikanische Restaurant

I love everything about Makula, from the warm West African welcome and hospitality to their spicy, plant-forward cuisine. Ganesh and I would often go here with another couple for a double date, and it was perfect as they enjoy meat, and Ganesh and I eat vegetarian. I would often order their vegan plantain curry, which was spicy but still flavor-packed. Our friends often tried West African meat dishes. The owner is from Togo, so most of the foods are inspired by his homeland, but you’ll get a taste of the entire region on their menu. Be prepared for free liquor after your meal and good conversations with the owner. 

Hungriges Herz 

One of my favorite places in Munich, this place has a heart (Herz) shaped vegetarian pizzas. What more do you need in life? Ok, maybe we also need vegan and vegetarian bowls, sandwiches, salads, breakfast, brunch, and bagels. My favorite thing to order is their sweet potato avocado bowl with lots of fresh ingredients and plenty of tofu for protein. Their coffee is fantastic, can be made with several vegan milk options, and always comes with a little heart-shaped chocolate (not vegan). This is the perfect spot for a healthy – or not-so-healthy – brunch, but it can get quite crowded on the weekends.

Munich Vegan and Vegetarian Food-4


My favorite Afghani restaurant has a full page dedicated to vegan and vegetarian options that are to die for. They have this spicy eggplant sauce served on a bed of jasmine rice that I randomly crave throughout the week. The place is quite popular, and reservations are recommended, but the food is worth it. They also have traditional Afghani options, including meat kebaps to appease the meat eaters, but when they try your eggplant, they might get jealous and convert ;) They also accommodate other dietary needs such as gluten and dairy.

Zimt Cafe

This is a vegan and vegetarian brunch place sent from the stars. They have a full vegan breakfast, vegetarian and vegan lunch options, plus plenty for meat eaters. They will also bake you some gluten-free bread or have it ready to serve – you just have to ask. They also cater to other allergies, such as dairy or nuts, as needed.


Located in one of the best hotels in the center of Munich, 25Hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian, this restaurant has a tasting platter for large groups that is all vegetarian (it does come with cream and egg). Honestly, with the homemade hummus and flatbread covered in sauce and veggies, your meat-eating friends aren’t missing meat, but if they do, there are plenty of chicken skewers to shut them up.

NENI vegetarian Food Munich

Green Elephant Pizza

While just about any pizza place is going to have cheese pizza, the Green Elephant is a haven for people with diet restrictions, including vegan, gluten, and dairy. You can order organic vegan pizza with gluten-free crust or indulge in cheese and regular crust. All ingredients are local, organic, and fresh for a healthy take on wood-fired pizza, pasta, and salads.

München 72

This is a very local recommendation, and I love coming here for Saturday brunch and getting their vegan breakfast with stuffed avocado, couscous, and perfectly cooked tomatoes for breakfast. They have a vegetarian breakfast as well, with plenty of cheese options and even some good old-fashioned bacon for the rest of the group.

Blue Nile

This place is a bit off the beaten path, but the neighbor is artistic and worth checking out if you head up to the Blue Nile for dinner. This Ethiopian restaurant has this massive shared pot of stewed veggies, dipping sauces, and traditional Ethiopian flatbreads, so everyone can dig in and be happy. They also have traditional Ethiopian meats and wines on the menu. The owners, from Ethiopia, are lovely, and you’ll feel a part of their family. Book a table on the weekends.

An Nam

It is one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants, but you can’t go wrong with Vietnamese in Munich.  I love to sit on their patio in the summer and order a glass of white wine and vegan mushroom stir fry. If you’re looking for something other than a sit-down option, then check out a place called Chi Thu, which is a Vietnamese street food joint and has a whole vegan section. You can get vegan red bean dumplings, banh mi, and veggie pho.

Vegetarian vegan food in Munich

Ruff’s Burger

I get it; when you’re traveling and want something quick and familiar, it is nice to grab a burger and be done with it. Ruff’s Burger has a few locations around Munich, and their veggie patty is to die for! You can customize your burger for vegan or vegetarian preferences, and the rest of the group can get a beef or chicken burger.

Gute Nacht Wurst

Dying to try that currywurst you’ve heard so much about, but you’re vegan so whomp whomp, too bad for you? Not too bad for you! Head to Gute Nacht Wurst and order their vegan currywurst with vegan sauce. Make sure to add a side of vegan Pommes for a great time! There is traditional currywurst for your meat-eating friends, but the real magic happens in the sauce, and to be honest, the vegan one is better :).

Traditional German Food for Vegetarians/Vegans

There is a surprising amount of traditional German foods that are vegetarian and a few that are vegan. But, sometimes, there can be a sneaky ingredient with these traditional dishes, so this guide will help you understand what to double-check before stuffing these foods in your face! Before we get into it, let’s chat about German Cheese.

Berg Käse – or Alpine Cheese

It is not uncommon for many traditional places to advertise some of their cheese-based products as vegetarian. While many vegetarians eat all types of cheese, I know some choose not to eat cheese made with rennet. Most German cheeses, such as Bergkäse or alpine cheese, are made with rennet. So, if you avoid this rennet, you may also want to avoid many of the traditional cheese-based dishes. Unless something is labeled vegan “cheese,” it will likely have rennet. There are places to get vegan traditional dishes, or you may be comfortable eating traditional cheeses as a vegetarian, but hopefully, this helps you make an informed decision that aligns with your dietary choices.


Are German pretzels vegan? This might be your first question when landing in Munich. Well, that depends. Bavaria’s staple is almost always vegetarian and often vegan in modern bakeries! I’ve taken a pretzel-making class with a professional Bavarian baker, and we made our pretzels with flour, water, yeast, lye solution, and a bit of beer. Thankfully, I’ve never encountered a pretzel made with lard, but as a reader pointed out, some older and more traditional places might include this in their recipe. Others might have an egg wash on the outside. So, always double-check before shoving as many of these down your throat in a time of need. 

To help, here is a guide to German bakeries where pretzels are guaranteed to be vegan. Thankfully, the pretzels at Oktoberfest are vegan– but be careful of the sides. To keep things vegan, you can ask for this with just mustard or saurkraut on the side. Vegetarians may prefer to eat it with butter. If you avoid cheese with rennet, do not order Obatzda, made with camembert cheese, butter, and beer. 


While you can sometimes find vegan Käsespätzel at the restaurants I mentioned above, traditionally, this dish is loaded with cheese made from rennet. If you avoid foods with rennet, do not order this dish unless it comes from a vegan-friendly restaurant like Max Pett or is clearly labeled on the menu as such. This dish can sometimes include speck or ham, but the default option is egg noodle, butter, alpine cheese, and crispy onions. 

Käsespätzel German vegetarian food

Knodelsuppe – vegetarian Knodel

Knodelsuppe is a clear and thin broth loaded with fat German-style dumplings. You’ll often see this as a vegetarian option on a menu at an alpine ski hut, Oktoberfest, or other restaurants. Unless specifically listed as vegetarian or vegan, you should ask about the broth. You might need to exercise some of the German I teach you at the end of the post. You can often find vegetarian or vegan Knodel or dumplings in Germany, but you want to ensure the broth is not made with meat stock and the dumplings don’t contain any traces of animal fat. 


Kaiserschmarrn is hard to say, but it is a tasty option for vegetarians. Sorry, vegans, this typically has eggs and milk in it, and I have yet to find a vegan option. This dish is a pancake cut up and served on a platter with apple sauce and powdered sugar on top. You can find this at most German restaurants, ski huts, and Oktoberfest.

Kaiserschmarrn munich vegetarian food


Lucky for us, another German staple is vegan. See, I told you it wasn’t all veal and pork! Drink as much beer as you want and have a great time.


If you see flammkuchen on the menu, there are usually two options: one with speck or ham – so stay away from that – and a vegetarian option that often has spring onions, tomato, or other veggies. The base almost always has a cream – sorry, vegans, but you can try and ask for just the bread and baked veggies. Various types of flatbread are sold at most traditional restaurants and events.


Potatoes are everywhere in Germany; you can get them as deep-fried pancakes, AKA hashbrowns, in french fry form, or roasted. The German word for potato is Kartoffel, and the German word for French fry is Pommes.

Kartoffelpuffer Reibekuchen German Christmas Market Vegetarian Food


Salat or salad is almost always on the menu. Most gourmet salads at German restaurants have Ziegenkäse or goat cheese on them; this is likely made with rennet. You can keep it vegetarian and vegan, asking to skip the cheese and maybe for some extra veggies on the side. 

Spargel Zeit!

Spargel Zeit – or asparagus time, is a magical time of year in the spring when Germans binge on giant white (and smaller green) asparagus fresh from local farms. You can find people selling it in the streets and restaurants serving it with potatoes and a vegetarian sauce. However, the sauce is often made with egg, so please ask your server if you are vegan to skip the sauce. If you are lucky, they will have a vegan sauce alternative!

spargel Munich vegetarian food


This is another traditional mountain dish that is vegetarian and rarely vegan (but you might get lucky!) This delicious vegetarian soup is made with wild, sustainably foraged mushrooms. Enjoy it at an alpine hut after a long autumn hike. Pilz means mushrooms. Rahm means cream, which is usually a dairy-based soup. 

Vegetarian/ Vegan Coffee and Sweets

We can have our vegan cake and eat it too! Since most pastries and snacks are at least vegetarian, I will focus on where to find vegan treats, coffee, and desserts. It wouldn’t be Kaffee and Kuchen time without tasty vegan and vegetarian coffee and cake.

Aroma Cafe Bar

This place has several milk options, including Oat (Hafer), Almond (Mandel), and Soy (soya). They can make fantastic vegan coffees, including flat whites, latte macchiato, and more. Unfortunately, I don’t think they have vegan chocolate, so avoid the mocha. If you’re hungry while getting your coffee, check out their veggie or vegan egg scrambles or quick bites in the other room. 

aroma cafe bar vegetarian food in munich

This place is insanely popular, and it is nearly impossible to find a seat on the weekends, so try to visit during the week for a more relaxing visit. Aroma is dedicated to zero waste; they donate some profits to NGOs, and the woman who owns it is lovely. They also speak English!

Man v Machine

This extreme hipster joint is one of the coolest coffee shops in Munich. If you like your vegan coffee served by people in beards and cool tats, then this is the place. They have several types of milk, including all your non-dairy favorites, and they often have small vegan bites like red beet vegan brownies, but they do not serve food or have wifi. You come here for the coffee and to be seen.

Back Bean

Black Bean is a German franchise chain dedicated to organic coffee. There are two in Munich, and are typically filled with university students studying. You’ll find soy and, I think, almond milk. They also have small vegetarian sandwiches and bites.

Cafe Blá

This cozy cafe on the other side of the Isar came as a blessing from Sweden. Cafe Blau feels like the cozy coffee houses of the north with their hip modern decor, and the best part is they have TONS of vegan treats. They serve vegan waffles, cakes, muffins, bread, cookies, sandwiches, and salads. They have a variety of milk and a great selection of teas and bio juices. They have wifi and many tables, so it’s a great place to get some work done or enjoy a relaxing break from the city center.

munich vegetarian

IceDate – Vegan Ice Cream

This all-vegan ice cream-making trio is dedicated to using all organic and natural ingredients, no dairy, and no artificial sugar. They sweeten their ice cream with natural sugars from dates. They have a variety of fruit and nut-flavored ice cream and are dedicated to zero waste – so you won’t find those plastic-tasting spoons that drive me bonkers.

Eiscafé Eismeer

In the heart of Munich’s gay district, the charming couple behind Eiscafé Eismeer serves vegan and dairy ice cream flavors in one of Munich’s favorite spots for a summer treat. You’ll find decadent ice cream sundaes, coffee ice cream floats, vegan waffles, and of course, plain natural ice cream. Be prepared for a line in the summer, but you won’t be disappointed.

Lost Weekend

This ultra-hip vegan cafe in the heart of our university district is known for its sustainable business practices and vegan food. Their tables are constructed from recycled cardboard, and their soups are served in glass jars. This is a great spot to get vegan coffee and hot vegan soup while getting some work done with their wifi and university feel.

Key German Phrases to Know

If you want to be triple sure you are not getting meat, it helps to know how to ask for no meat, or ask if a particular dish has meat. So, let’s learn some German phrases!

“No meat please”:  “Ohne Fleisch, Bitte!” Sounds like: Ohne (oh nay) Fleisch (fly shhh) Bitte (Bit-eh)

“Is there meat in this food?”  “Gibt es Fleisch in diesem Essen?” Sounds like: Gibt (gipt) es Fleisch in diesem (dee-zem) Essen (ess-en)

“No dairy please” “Ohne Milchprodukte, Bitte” Sounds like: Milchprodukte (mil hch – pro dookt)

You might also say Milchhandlung for dairy products (mil hch – hand – luuung)

“Is there dairy in here?” “Gibt es Milchprodukte?”

“I am Vegetarian” “Ich bin Vegetarier” Sounds like: Ich (ick) bin Vegetarier (veg – eh -tar – e – air)

“I am Vegan” “Ich bin Veganer” Sounds like: Veganer (Vee – gan -er)

You can use these words to fill in the above sentences, so you can ask if there is any cheese in something by saying, “Gibt es Käse?”

The great thing about eating at Munich’s best vegan and vegetarian restaurants is you will have so much variety. Most restaurants, even if not dedicated to vegan or vegetarian foods, know these concepts with the rising number of vegans and vegetarians in Munich. I find this true even in some of the more rural areas outside of Munich. I hope you enjoy Munich’s excellent vegan and vegetarian restaurants and foodie scene.
