nothing special except the history

Auerbach's Keller is probably a place you have to visit if you are in Leipzig. But it is not a place to go if you are vegetarian or vegan.
At least 95% of the dishes include meat, even on some simple dishes like salad and soups they put meat in. There is no real choice for veggies and I did not enjoy staying there.
In addition, prices comparably high, quality and general food experience is just average, if at all.
Other places are far more interesting for veggies to go.

Pros: historic place, located in beautiful city center
Cons: loud atmosphere , not veg friendly, average food, high price

Nice vegan food in an unlikely place!

Since Auerbachs Keller is a famous attraction in Leipzig, I was very pleased to learn that they recently added a vegetarian and vegan section to the menu since I wanted to take my visiting parents there. The options are:

- Salad (vegan)
- Roasted Mediterranean veg with roasted potatoes (vegan)
- A pasta bake with cheese (vegetarian)
- Bakes "market fresh" vegetables (vegetarian)

You can also order sorbet for dessert.

Me and my wife tried both the vegan options and although we weren’t overly impressed, the food was certainly more than just edible and the sorbet was delicious! More than anything, we were simply happy that we were able to order trouble- and worry-free.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan options
Cons: Not particularly good value
