TRIVITYS in the beautiful Florastraße in Berlin-Pankow is a café and was founded by the wonderful Tsvetana Dinkova. In the background is the production of healthy delicacies and their distribution.Thore Hildebrandt – known in Berlin for his savior dinners. I had been in online contact with Thore for a long time. My visit to TRIVITYS gave me the opportunity to finally get to know each other personally. Tsvetana and Thore came together in spring 2020 through a corona initiative and started a cooperation. In addition to Tsvetana’s “Healthy. Tasty. Natural.” offer, Thore contributed some exciting hearty foods to TRIVITYS. But more on that later.
I took the opportunity to interview both of them. However, the focus of this article is on TRIVITYS, which has its finger on the pulse of the times with its vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free foods. In Pankow it is a pioneer and at the same time pushes open doors.
The story of TRIVITYS
In a way, Tsvetana and I have something in common. Our path to a healthy, plant-based diet began with a personal blow of fate. With her it was even more personal because she was diagnosed with cancer in her early thirties. That completely changed her life and turned the career woman into a vegan nutritionist with her own restaurant.
Sport, meditation and healthy eating were the solution for Tsvetana. The name of her restaurant is also derived from this health-promoting rule of three. Tri means three and vita means life.
It opened on March 1, 2020 and we remember that it was shortly before the corona lockdown. Not an ideal time to open a restaurant. But just as Tsvetana has fought her health back, she apparently goes into business too. And I am sure that she will succeed with it.
The ambienceVintique, who specialize in wooden crates. These serve as the starting material for various pieces of furniture.
In the background there is a large kitchen that can also be used for cooking events. In front of the building there is a guest garden stretching the entire length of the building and up to the sidewalk, as can be seen in one of the pictures.
What’s on the menu at TRIVITYS?
You will be really amazed here, because a large part of the menu is very unusual. As you have heard from the story of Tsvetana, the focus is clearly on healthy products made from natural raw materials in organic quality. Vegan, gluten-free and no added sugar. Tsvetana completed her training in the nutrition sector with Dr. Rüdiger Dahlke, who is known for his “Peace Food” and has written many books.
It starts with the “Sweet Morning“. That means that the day at TRIVITYS starts off sweetly. Banana bread muffins or overnight oats are the more popular things you’ll find here. Avo-berry layering cream made from raspberries, avocado, dates, almond butter and yogurt alternatives as well as DATYS brownies are probably not familiar to you. By the way, DATYS are the homemade sweet spreads that you can also take home in a jar or order online.
On the picture on the left you can see the cheese variations made from Bulgarian cashew soft cheese with homemade gluten-free protein bread, Thores protein crackers and avocado with cashew parmesan.
Another TRIVITYS creation are the DATYS, which are not only used in some dishes, but can also be taken home in a glass (in sizes 150g and 215g). These are sweet spreads in the varieties cocoa, hazelnut-cocoa, cocoa-guarana and hazelnut-cocoa-maca-guarana.
In addition to the DATYS already mentioned, you can currently find the following things on the delicatessen shelf:
The hearty spreads, pea guacamole, hummus and the beetroot-horseradish chutney.
The two homemade, gluten-free breads (protein and black cumin) in 500g and 1,000g can also be taken home if ordered in advance.
There is also the D’free soft cheese alternative.
As you can see in the picture on the right, there are also cooled drinks from Ostmost and Völkel available for take away. Furthermore you can get some snacks, oils, coffee and granola in the delicatessen area.
As it should be in a café, there is of course coffee in all varieties and needless to say in organic quality. The latter also applies to the tea specialties. The third category of hot drinks is the “Organic Superfoods Latte“, such as an organic Matcha with cinnamon and cardamom.
What you rarely get anywhere is homemade kombucha. I had one with strawberries.
There are of course also better-known drinks, for example from Völkel and Ostmost.
Cultural and culinary events take place in TRIVITYS every now and then. Vernissages and music evenings, for example. And cooking events, not least through the cooperation with Thore Hildebrandt, such as a zero waste cooking course.
A fantastic shop that wonderfully combines pleasure and health. You can feel how much passion the founder Tsvetana Dinkova put into every detail.
Here you will find a lot of things that you won’t find anywhere else in Berlin. This makes a visit to TRIVITYS in the beautiful Florakiez in Pankow a must for all explorers and connoisseurs.
