Veggie Münster, Germany? Very much possible: restaurants, coffee and cake… Are you, just like us, always looking forward to exploring food spots while traveling? Janet became a real expert in finding hip and cool vegan and veggie places to try. Her Google and Instagram searches are thorough and she always comes up with endless lists of options. So, when we visited Münster, a beautiful city in Germany, we were armed with lots of places to go for coffee, veggie pie and food, green shops and more. We love sharing which places we tried.
It was definately a short visit, we only had 2 days to explore Münster. In some cities that’s enough to explore the veggie Münster food scene, because there’s simply not a lot to find. In German cities however, most of the time there are lots of veggie options to find. This was also the case in Münster. Luckily we had some help: co-bloggers Jeroen (Oogst Groningen) and Ruurd (GroningenRevisited) joined us on this blogtrip and they were looking forward to exploring the veggie Münster food scene too.
For lunch we went to Krawümmel. I had been there once before, with a friend from Amsterdam, and we loved the food. They offer a 100% vegan menu, which is definately a big plus! We devoured our döner with salad plate and we had a roast potato filled with lots of veggies. Good value for money: fresh ingredients, satisfying and very tasty!
The 2 gentlemen discovered Roestbar: the place to go in Münster if you like coffee. According to the guys the hot chocolate is a must try here! We ordered a chai latte (made of real tea, which is so much better than the powder chai lattes we mostly get served…) and a fresh ginger tea. Jeroen and Ruurd couldn’t resist trying a chocolate caramel pie and they loved it.
Bucks and Grosser Kiepenkerl
Janet and I booked a table at Bucks: a vegan restaurant just outside the city center. They post their weekly changing menu on instagram and we were quite impressed by the menus we had seen. But, during the week we visited Münster, the menu wasn’t very appealing to us (I just don’t like cauliflower, chocolate and mushrooms). We decided to cancel our reservation and try another restaurant. So we ended up at a typical “West-Fälisch” restaurant in the city center called Grosser Kiepenkerl, where they surprised us with a vegan and a vegetarian dish. Perfect for our veggie Münster adventure. Spätzle with mushrooms for Janet (she loves mushrooms) and a veggie skewer and stuffed zucchini for me. Both great!
Konditorei Café Issel
In the Hammer Strasse you’ll find all kinds of shops, for example: a non-packaging store, a world shop and a vintage clothing store. So it’s only a good thing Cafe Issel is located in the same street, right? After all the shopping just spoil yourself with some delicious pie and coffee. Also there are at least 4 vegan options available and most pies are suitable for vegetarians. When you walk into this cafe, the first thing you’ll see is all these different pies… We chose 2 pieces of pie: delicious, great texture. And the coffee was good too. Café Issel is a typical German place, somewhat old fashioned, but we like it!
Our last food stop in Münster was Herr Sonnenschein (opposite Krawümmel, Königsstrasse). Great atmosphere, a modern feel and vibe (a bit hipster maybe). A must try: the pumpkin soup (vegan and quite spicy!) with sour dough bread, the toast with avocado (also vegan) and the veggie quiche. Yummy!
At Frooters you can get your daily dose of vitamins: it’s a juice and salad bar. So many juices (vegetables and fruit) to choose from, fabulous! This bar is located at the Arkaden Münster (a shopping mall in the city center).
And there are so much more places to visit in Münster. We love the veggie food scene here and would love to go back for some more exploring. It’s so convenient you don’t have to go looking for a 100% vegan place, because German restaurants often have delicious vegan (or veggie) dishes on their menu. Vegetarian and vegan food sometimes seem to be more accepted in Germany than in The Netherlands.
