I’m happy to see more and more vegetarian and vegan restaurants, cafés, delis and menu options appearing even in a small city like Nuremberg. Whether you are on a vegetarian, pescetarian, dairy-free, egg-free or gluten-free diet or just simply want to try something different, the offer is good and constantly growing. After living 3 year in Nuremberg I discovered some great places for vegetarian or vegan eating out which I’m going to share with you. All the places below I have tried myself and I’m eager to expand this collection for the future.
Coffee Mr. Bleck offers a large variety of hot drinks prepared with soy-milk and some delicious vegan bagels. My favorite drink is the soy chai latte.
The all-time classic. All drinks can be prepared with soy-milk and within the sandwich offer there is a tasty Vegan Avocado Ciabatta. Right now they have the DELICIOUS Pumpkin Spice Latte in the drinks menu, which they can prepare vegan as well.
The Tasty Leaf
One of the two fully Vegan Restaurants in Nuremberg with this special feel-at-home ambiance. The menu is changing every week, to ensure a versatile, seasonal and regional offer. I had the Italian Cappelletti with a creamy herb sauce (image) and my partner the black bean burger. Both dishes were absolutely spot on! Service was extraordinarily nice and the atmosphere really cozy and inviting. They also sell vegan chocolate candies and bars at the counter, I simply couldn’t pass by without picking some
Bogenstraße 43 · 90459 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911 / 80 19 55 29
The second fully Vegan restaurant in Nuremberg offers a variety of Asian Specialities and a Sunday “all you can eat” buffet. I found the interior of the place not very inviting, but the food was overall good. It’s absolutely amazing to see how these guys transform Seitan into meat-look-alike dishes.
Kirchenweg 22 · 90419 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911 / 37844613
A fine vegetarian restaurant which prepares all dishes also vegan upon request. The service is extremely nice, the food delicious and the desserts are vegan and to-die-for. My favorites are the apple crumble and the chocolate cake, to the point that as I’m unable to decide which one to take, I usually take both.
Johannisstr. 40 · 90419 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911 / 390390
A very cozy restaurant which offers delicious Indian fusion cuisine. The vegetarian dishes are marked in the menu as such and can be prepared vegan as well. I believe I have tried almost every veggie curry dish from the menu and I can’t decide which is the best one, they are all so good!
Johannisstr. 28 · 90419 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911 / 3000754
Probably the best veggie curry in the city! I would recommend this rather as a take-away option, as it is always very crowded, loud and not really inviting inside. But the food is super fresh and tasty!
Bucher Straße 23 · 90419 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911 / 377 80 09
Dean & David
Great Deli for lunch or a snack break. Huge variety of salads, smoothies and sandwiches. At lunchtime they have really nice soups and curries. My favorite is the vegan yellow curry and their delicious carrot ginger juice.
Innere Laufer Gasse 35 · 90403 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911 / 211 45 210
Auguste Premium Junkfood
Auguste Premium Junkfood is located in the south of the city and serves organic and homemade burgers. The menu has a lot of vegetarian and vegan options too.
Augustenstr. 37 · 90461 Nürnberg · Tel. 0911/9326869
Hans im Glück
Hans im Glück is a Burger Joint with a great variety of vegetarian (+ 1 vegan) burgers. You can choose between sourdough or whole grain bun or have your burger without the bun served on a salad.
