I may head over in a few months (but will probably be hellishly busy...).

ETA: Berlin, that is.

I saw today that there is a veggie Meetup group for Berlin! Sadly, it lacks members and events, and the organizer thinks about shutting it down. Does anyone want to join? :-)

Any particular recommendations for Mitte? I'm just trying to figure out good places to eat without planning the trip around it. Anywhere veg-friendly that's not too expensive is of interest.

Mitte ? you mean Berlin city center?

I would say for instance :

Cafe V http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=7568
*note: they say to be open until 1-2 am, but that's only during summer when the weather is good, otherwise they close at midnight

Cafe Vux http://www.vux-berlin.com/
Depending on what you want or think : cake or pie can make a good dinner too.

Ohlala tartes shop, haven't been there myself yet, but it looks good
http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=27288

Voner http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=15157
Fast food style I guess, but certainly not expensive.

And off course, Veganz http://www.happycow.net/reviews.php?id=27316
The all vegan supermarket with a cafe section where you can have pie or cake, sandwiches too.

If you get a day pass for the train/subway system, all those can be reached in reasonable time.

My girlfriend just got back from Berlin and brought me tons of stuff from Veganz, i was so excited by the stuff that I made a thread with pics

Thanks. I mean Mitte as in the borough, which is where I'll be based for the first two and a half days. I'm not traveling alone and while my friend is quite happy to eat non-meaty food I probably won't go out of my way to find vegan restaurants unless they happen to be right in front of me. I'd do that if it was just me. I did notice a Bioladen near where we're staying on the map though, which could come in handy for food on the go. I'm going to Munich in a few weeks, so I can knock myself out acquiring novelty food items when I get there and have a bit more flexibility.

Berliners/Berlin enthusiasts! I'm seeking your tattoo artist recommendations. I'll be over there in December and I'm keen to get something small done (small due to almost-certain poorness). I've been to one tattoo shop in Berlin before, but I was 15 and my friend was getting a horrible butterfly tattoo, so I probably don't want to go back to that one.

When in December?

Around December 19-22. We'll just be popping by for a few days before head off to spend Christmas with my family in Hildesheim.

Dolores, really good burrito place, they have bowls as well. Great for mixed company. Mitte isn't the best for food, but it's close to lots of other neighborhoods with great food.

Sebastian Domaschke at Lowbrow! He's great AND vegan.

When you come in to Veganz, say Hello! I'm a baker there.

Thanks, I actually got back a few days ago! I ended up having falafel, pizza, various pastries and wheaty sausages from a health food shop, far too many chocolate sandwich cookies from Rossmann and Indian in Kreuzberg.

My tattoo artist lives in Berlin - Sara Rosenbaum who works for Tatau Obscur. She did my whole back and she is awesome! I will be paying her another visit on 28 October!

Thanks! I'll check out both. I'm only after some fairly small lettering (which a lot of people could do a good job of) but Boyfriend wants something bigger and more fun, so he might make the call on which shop we visit.

Definitely! After Berlin we'll be heading to see my family in a much less vegan-friendly town, so I'll need to stock up on snacks to get us through Christmas.

Thought I'd mention it here too: Anyone happens to be around in Berlin at the moment ?

And furthermore: I'm here by myself, and I'd like to maybe meet some people. Tried looking on meetup.com but there's nothing there. Anyone any recommendations when it comes to queer and/or vegan meetups/things to do ?

Hi Paloma,

I hope this post is not coming too late :-) There are so many vegans in Berlin that they don't need to organize in one big group - there is the Berlin vegan munch twice a month (https://www.facebook.com/BerlinVegan/events) at different locations. On August 18th, there is the veggie summer party at Alexanderplatz. On August 21st (=3rd Saturday each month), there is the vegan BDSM munch at Viasko (http://veggiedungeon.wordpress.com/stammtisch/, website in german). On couchsurfing, there is a vegan group with lots of people organizing potlucks and so on. Other Natureis a feminist queer vegan sex shop - if that is queer enough ;-)

I am working during the week, but if you want to meet on the weekend or have some Burger or so on a workday night, let me know :-)

I've just returned from a most wonderful trip to Berlin. Had no idea whatsoever that a veggie/vegan summer party took place. I happened to be at Alexanderplatz on August 18th (a mere coincidence!) and I even noticed a gathering from the distance ... but I thought it was just another 'ordinary' (flea) market and didn't bother to have a closer look. Now imagine just how angry I was with myself because I've missed it!
