Today it’s hard to recall, but there’s a good chance Kopps is where we had our first brunch together. Then we had another (elsewhere). And another. And you get the gist – here we are. Kopps is a vegan restaurant. The kind that helps convince you that vegan food isn’t necessarily a sad imitation of what carnivores eat, but could be original, esthetic and very yummy.
On weekends they serve a Brunch Buffet at Kopps: Cornflakes with soja milk, fruits and vegetables, watermelon and fruit salad, tomato salad, beans, cold pasta salad, the best egg-salad-substitute we’ve came across, couscous, hummus, wonderful fried potatoes, spreads, chocolate cake and chubby little pancakes for dessert. And the list goes on. And it’s all vegan, so your tummy will be full while your conscience is clear. Unfortunately, in our last visit the food was a bit too oily. Especially the beloved potatoes.
Vegan is great. Oil? not so much.
Price: 11 Euro
Location: splendid. On the corner of Linienstraße and Ackerstraße
Space: pleasant, big buffet, minimalist table, tasteful design and low sitting area for larger groups. On nice days it’s worth sitting outside with an overview of the street corner and Koppenplatz. It’s beautiful.
Service: efficient and to the point
The Plate Test: a few oil puddles were left as décor
Crowd: grown-up and respectable-looking. Like they came especially to have brunch at Kopps
Kids: for the sophisticated and well-behaved. None were spotted while we were there
Dogs: outside is fine. Never seen one inside
Soundtrack: no music
The Bottom Line: we’ll be back. We’ll hope there’s less oil, and be back.
