A colorful place

Posted on 06 / 12 / 2013

An artistic, colorful and "alternative" place, cozy atmosphere. Lots of details, like wall paintings, all different second-hand furniture, a big lamp made of old books etc. The walls in the bathroom are covered with comic-strip style drawings, it's worth to take a look there.

Orders are being taken at the bar, if you don't know this you might be sitting for some time until you get noticed.

I have been there once and unfortunately I was not too crazy about the food I had. I had the vegan version of a cucumber-sorrel soup, a traditional cold dish which is usually served with sour cream. Since there was no vegan alternative for the sour cream it was just omitted and it was mainly sour and watery. I believe the vegetarian version was ok since the sour cream compensates a part of the taste of the sorrel. The bread which went with the soup was really good. As a main course I had falafel which were less that lukewarm with lentil salad and some not so fresh, chewy Turkish bread.

Friendly staff. Not so much a place for vegans, but with some slight improvements it might be great for vegetarians.

Very cheap.

Pros: creative ambiance, low prices
Cons: not really for vegans

Delicious vegetarian food

The lunch special is 3.50 and is an excellent deal which includes soup, a main course, dessert and tea or coffee. It changes daily and other one is a paneer. The nice thing is that there is usually food available for dinner as well, at least the paneer is always available, but if you don't want that then usually they are able to make a salad. The main course might be pasta, a vegetable dish, a soy dish, etc; all of which are very tasty.

Pros: tasty, friendly , nice atmosphere
