Hurray, a new vegan café has opened in Darmstadt. It’s called Veel Good and indeed, you feel home straight away when you come in. And you feel hungry too 🙂
The choice is huge: sandwiches, biscuits, cakes… you can sit and enjoy or bring it home. The atmosphere is very friendly and cosy. Do stop by if you are around!
I don’t know about you but I had tons of biscuits and chocolate during Christmas. The thing is, as it was my first Christmas in Germany, I really wanted to try all the local traditional yummy bits and bobs.
All the organic shops were selling vegan versions of those desserts… how wonderful 🙂
They are usually made with spices. The Pfeffernüsse are small biscuits made with cloves, cinnamon and anis. The Elisenlebkuchen are nuts and almond cookies with lemon and orange savour.
My favorite one? The Walnusskuchen, a cake made with walnuts and chocolate.
It’s beginning of January now and I am glad I still have a few left to keep me happy during the winter 🙂
Because sometimes, you do need comforting food – after a busy day, I go to Whole Foods Market and I enjoy some good chocolates and/or vegan cupcakes. One rule here: treat yourself!
