good place to eat in Bonn
Posted on 03 / 23 / 2009
Well, actually, while there are a number of health-food stores now, this is still the only vegetarian restaurant in Bonn, so you're not left with too many choices. In recent years they've started clearly labeling all vegan options (with a green sticker), so it's easy to find those. The menu changes on a day-to-day basis. It's all self-serve, cafeteria-style; they have a cold salad bar and a hot food section. Plus desserts (not much vegan stuff here) and drinks, including organic beer and wine. There's also a separate cafe area connected to the main restaurant (pretty much non-vegan, though I did spot a vegan cake on display once).
The place itself is multi-level, located in a mall-like space called "Cassius Graben", pretty much right in the center of town, part of the extensive pedestrian zone; follow signage to find the restaurant.
I actually don't think it's fast-foodlike at all; most items are quite wholesome. Some of the vegan options are a little on the bland side (the vegan burger patty, e.g., one of three burger options offered most days), but I've had tasty stir-fries; there are always a few very good vegan salads (coleslaw, arugula/potato salad), so you usually do end up with a full plate (which can actually get rather pricey, so watch out).
I would definitely recommend eating here if visiting Bonn!
