Picture of Evelyn Smallwood
Updated: 23 August 2017
Whether you’re a life-long vegetarian or just looking for a break from all the Haxe and Bratwurst you find in the Brauhauses, Cologne has a ton of vegetarian and vegan restaurants and cafés that serve imaginative, delicious food. There’s even Europe’s first vegan burger chain. Here’s where to find them.

Bunte Burger

Restaurant, Healthy, $$$
Save to wishlist

Founders Mario and Ulrich grew up in Bavaria next to an organic farm. Around 2014, they started wondering if it was possible to make delicious colorful burgers without any meat. It turns out, it was, and Bunte Burger was born.

MakiMaki Sushi Green

Restaurant, Sushi, $$$
Save to wishlist

After 15 years in the traditional sushi business, MakiMaki decided to try something a little kinder on the rapidly depleting fish stock in the world’s oceans: vegan sushi. Baked tofu, seitan, avocado, onions, cucumbers, beet sprouts, and Japanese yellow radish all pinch hit for fish.

Mashery Hummus Kitchen

Middle Eastern, $$$
Save to wishlist

For a long time in Cologne, the only place to get good hummus was as a side dish in Turkish restaurants or as a topping on a döner kebab. The Mashery changed all that in 2016. Now anyone can get hummus and aubergine, Yemeni hot sauce, a Sabich sandwich, hard boiled eggs, or falafel.
