Respond to Review of CLOSED: Good Five
by cookiemonster

Review: Short version: It's great! If you are vegan and in Bratislava, go here! It's not pricey, it's 10 min from the train station (though it's a bit winding to get there so give yourself 20). Long version: Bratislava is beautiful but if your vegan and don't speak the local language, your food prospects are dismal. Overpriced, understocked grocery stores only make it worse. I had given up on finding food there, which was no biggy because I was heading back to Vienna that evening, but I decided since Good Five was so close to the train station, I would peek in before getting on the train as walking around all day had made me a bit hungry. The listing here said it was expensive so I didn't have high hopes for it working out considering my limited budget. I am SO glad I went!! It was a little vegan gem in the middle of a veggie wasteland! I was there about 4pm on saturday, I don't know if this is usual but when I arrived there was a woman out front who took your money for an all-you-can eat buffet. It was 12.9€ for one person, with a slight discount the more of you there were. The food was amazing! I loved the mushroom risotto. Other highlights were roast pepper stuffed with tvp, these steak cutlets (some sort of seitan/wheat I think), onion rings (was actually a garnish for the roast eggplant dish but they were awesome), and the sweet potato dish. That's saying something because I don't like sweet potato. Oh, and the desserts! The only problem was I wanted to try one of everything! Luckily they were in small enough pieces, though I still at too much. They had a short cake, an amazing plum muffin-y thing, strawberry blueberry(?) muffins that were mostly fruit, this couscous cake (yes, I know, but it was delish), fresh fruit salad. They also had guava and agar fruit salad with the guava cut into hippos and elephants. There was a sweet mint sauce, a carob sauce, and a carob-cinnamon sauce to go on all of these. The atmosphere was super classy and it felt calm and spacious inside. The staff were super friendly, although not many spoke english (but they got me someone that did, who was super nice). I can't recommend this place enough, and maybe a la carte is normally more expensive but I thought the price was great. In fact, the food was better than anything I have found in Vienna despite being here a week. If you're in Bratislava, especially if you are taking the train, don't miss out!
