Restaurants & Cafés

You won’t go hungry in Leipzig. Besides the Zentrum and the four main entertainment areas (the Karli, Gottschedstraße, Karl-Heine, and Münzgasse) the city has a great selection of places to eat or drink. Like most things in Germany, you’ll find the food to be of a relatively high quality. This goes even for fast food as well as fine dining. Coffee, teas, beer (of course), and other prepared drinks are also very good.

For a review of recommended beer gardens (biergartens) check out Nightlife & Drinking.

Vegan & Vegetarian

Healthy eating is a major trend in Leipzig. If you are vegan or vegetarian or want organic (‘bio’) you will absolutely love the selection of places to eat out. You will find vegan and vegetarian menu items in the most surprising of places. Indeed it would be difficult to find a menu in Leipzig that doesn’t offer at least one non-meat or non-dairy option. Even fast food places such as kebab, pizza or hotdog shops will have veggie/cheese, bean, or soy alternatives to their usual fare.

In Connewitz there is a cluster of organic, vegan and vegetarian restaurants and fast food joints. On Wolfgang-Heinze-Straße there’s Deli, Le Cygne, Atacolypse2, and Vegan Lonestar. And on Bornaische Straße you’ll find Braker’s Go and Zest. Zest turns into a really nice hang out in the evenings.
