Omas Backstube (translation: grandma’s bakery) is a tiny bakery which sells vegan bread and various vegan baked goods. The bakery has been in existence for several years, but started offering only vegan baked goods in September 2018. (Cow’s milk is available for teas and coffees, and some non-vegan industrial ice cream in individual portions is also sold.)
All the baked goods are made with spelt flour (bread, buns, cakes, etc.), and sugar substitutes are often used for baking. Individual slices of cake cost between 3.20 and 3.90 Euros. (2019 prices, which are due to change in the future.) I love the mango cheesecake, fruit tartelettes, cinnamon rolls, and apricot crumble. It is not uncommon for Omas Backstube to close early, when everything’s sold out. I love that Saturday’s opening hours depend on the weather – check their Facebook page for updates.
