Cute place

Posted on 04 / 15 / 2014

Nice place, good coffee (though I appreciate a choice of vegan milks, especially as I should avoid soy), so-so vegan cake. I guess that the baker is more experienced in making cake with dairy and eggs. One of our cakes was rather dry ("Sacher Torte") and the other one had a strange texture (one layer much too firm, the other one too liquid), with a little improvement in the recipe it could be much more delicious! It still was a pleasant experience, but I wouldn't recommend to go there for vegan cake.

Pros: Pretty jewelry, Many vegan options
Cons: Not the best vegan cake, Also serves dairy and eggs
  • mostly-vegetarian

Good food and friendly staff

I've been there for lunch last week. I had a vegetarian burger and a salad and can recommend both. Good bio food at a reasonable price. The whole place seems to be quite new. Nice location and very friendly staff. I definitely will be back.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff
Cons: didn't notice yet
