Nice cosy place

Posted on 08 / 20 / 2013

It is a really nice cosy place! There were a lot of vegan options and the lady serving could speak English! The food is comforting, not pretentious at all but delicious! I really enjoyed eating there! Not expensive! Not greasy! Heathy food to comfort a traveling belly!!

Pros: Part of the menu wasn't in English
Cons: Centric, Terrace, Healthy food

This is a perfect place. It is very cheap, has many options, and the service was sooo nice and helpful. They immediately told me everything was VEGAN and indeed it was, even if I double-checked for ingredients. It is quick and really delicious. I visited for one day, but after eating lunch there, i came back for dinner. I can really recommend this place! Plus it is easily found, on the main street!!

Pros: delicious, all vegan, cheap

Nice place for tea

'Arbatine' is in the very center of Kaunas, very easy to find. The interior is nice and cozy. The place is very popular with elderly ladies and health-conscious individuals.
Most of the dishes are vegetarian, but if they run out of agar agar (for example), they can use animal-derived gelatin in some meals. They never properly disclose non-vegan ingredients of their meals, even if you ask they might not tell the truth (seriously). Most of their rolls are not vegan (you have to ask about ingredients). Their white soy sauce is made of soy powder that contains casein (again, maybe things are different now, so you have to ask). Also, they sell fish oil and some other non-vegan supplements.
The menu is in Lithuanian only and the staff do not speak much English.
Still, if you are lucky, you can get a nice meal. They usually have vegan salad. All the portions are quite small, but the food is tasty.

Pros: Nice place, Yummy teas
Cons: Very few vegan options, No clear information about ingredients

Not bad but not many vegan options

Arbatine is a nice playe to sit down and watch the people passing by on Laisves aleja. Unfortunately there are hardly any vegan options, at least there weren't when I was there (2008).
The staff spoke hardly any English so I had to communicate in Lithuanian...
For vegetarians it might be a nice place to eat at, however. Food might include some sort of quiche or other simple dishes. There is also a range of salads, tea etc.
On the contrary to Morku Selsmas, not far from Arbatine, it's all about "healthy living", not about animal rights (they wouldn't allow displaying animal rights flyers).
