Doughnuts are a delicious treat that everyone loves. Whether you enjoy them with a cup of coffee in the morning, as a snack during the day, or as a dessert after dinner, there’s no denying that doughnuts are a crowd-pleaser. Now, the room is open for more delicious and creative vegan doughnuts. Enter Brammibal’s Donuts, Europe’s first all-vegan doughnut shop.
The Story Of Europe’s First Vegan Doughnuts
Opened as a small stall in 2015 in the Turkish food market, Brammibal’s Donuts now has many outlets across the city of Berlin. It is Europe’s first vegan doughnut. Founded by Bram van Montfort and Jessica Samhaber, the aim was simple — to create a sustainable and ethical business that focused on plant-based products.

One of the things that set Brammibal’s Donuts apart from other bakeries is its commitment to using high-quality, plant-based ingredients. The bakery uses organic flour, coconut oil, and almond milk in its doughnuts. What started out as a small pop-up shop in Berlin, quickly gained a loyal following due to its unique and delicious vegan doughnuts. The bakery offers a wide variety of flavours, including classic favourites like glazed and chocolate, as well as more unusual flavours like matcha and blueberry lavender. In addition to its delicious doughnuts, the bakery also offers other plant-based baked goods like cinnamon rolls and croissants, as well as coffee and other drinks.
More Than Vegan Doughnuts
It is to be noted that the city of Berlin is not just the capital of Germany but is famed for its vegan offerings among the top European cities. These doughnuts have become popular not just in Berlin, but across Europe as well. In 2019, the bakery opened a second outpost in Vienna, Austria. The Vienna store offers a slightly different menu than the Berlin one but still features Brammibal’s signature vegan doughnuts.

But Brammibal’s Donuts isn’t just about making delicious vegan treats; it’s also about promoting sustainability and reducing the bakery’s carbon footprint. The bakery uses biodegradable packaging and compostable coffee cups, and partners with local organisations to reduce food waste. In fact, they even have started their program called ‘Donuts Against Waste’ which donates unsold doughnuts to local organisations like food banks and homeless shelters. This not only helps reduce food waste but also provides a delicious treat to those in need.
Brammibal’s Donuts has become a leader in the vegan food scene in Europe, inspiring other businesses to follow in its footsteps. Now, it’s not just a bakery, but a symbol of the growing movement towards more sustainable and ethical food choices.
