Best vegan place in Strasbourg

4 Posted on 03 / 17 / 2014

I think this is the only serious place with vegan options in Strasbourg. Located right in the center and easily accesible by tram, etc. As main dishes they have

- Two "InBox Quinoa" options (India and Curry). This is a quinoa-based dish, could be clearly more spicy for my taste but with a price of approx. 6 Euros is really value for money
- A vegan couscous option (again, based on quinoa), didn't try this one
- A vegan burger. This one was a clear disappointment as this was just a sandwich filled with cucumbers, tomatoes and a slightly bitter dressing

The real food highlights are the desserts (tried the fondant chocolat-marron and an apple/rasperry pie - both delicious) and the Viennoiserie (self-made pain au chocolat, brioche, pain aux raisins, ...).

The place itself is rather small and it feels more like being in somebodies living room than in a restaurant ;-) Very friendly and helpful owner.

Pros: Atmosphere, Desserts
Cons: Burger

Loved this place

Located at few step away from L ' homme de ferre, this tiny place offer a good quality/price food. I am a fan of quinoa so I was happy to find this place. Portions are quite big and price reasonable. Overall a nice experience but the space for eating is very, very small.

I would like to give 5 stars but happycow limit a non-veg restaurant to 4 stars.

Pros: Food, Price, Location
Cons: Limited menu, very tiny room

Vegan items are clearly marked, which was the best thing about this small restaurant. It's a cute place with friendly owners, but to say the food was underwhelming would be accurate. The desserts are probably the best thing going here. The viennoise pastry we had was very yummy, and the two other vegan offerings looked good too. But we weren't wild about the Quinoa mains, which were both pretty ordinary, though the portions were huge.

Pros: Fairly priced, desserts

Interesting and yummy

I went with my two young children and a friend and her baby. The food was very good. I got the pizza- I think the crust is made out of quinoa. The fondant chocolat was AMAZING as was the clafoutis! My kids liked the hot meals. If you don't know what to get the very friendly staff will let you try small samples.

Pros: great staff, yummy food, good prices

The staff is very friendly, the price is really affordable (4,80€ for a vegan "inbox"),the portions are really big, the food is nice and the service is quick !
It is great to have a place in Strasbourg to eat vegan meals for this price.

Pros: Cheap, Big portions, Friendly Staff
