great burgers

Posted on 10 / 14 / 2014

I tried this place for the first time with my boyfriend and we are both vegetarian. The owner was very nice and we tried the goat cheese burger and it was a little difficult to eat but it was so sweet and delicious.

Pros: very delicious food, cheap prices, very friendly staff
Cons: very small restaurant

Hopefully they'll add more vegan options

Only one out of the five burgers on the menu is suitable for vegans. The kebap or should I say vebap is vegan. Potatoes wedges are nice and the organic sodas are delicious.

Pros: Usually you get your order pretty fast., Moderate prices.
Cons: Most burgers aren't vegan., Sometimes they're out of vegan options., Staff might be kinda slow sometimes

Top-quality fast-food in Jyväskylä

Posted on 07 / 31 / 2014

Vegemesta deserves always a visit when going around in Jyväskylä. The restaurant is small but its super cozy style and colorful atmosphere ensure that you enjoy your time waiting for your dish being prepared. Moreover, Vegemesta is a great place to catch some takeaway home or to the close parks, but it is fun to sit at the shop's window sill on top of the pillows, sipping some organic soft drinks with your friends, too. 8)

The staff is super-nice and friendly, and they master their field when it comes to vegan cuisine. Even though many of the hamburgers on the list include dairy (i.e. goat cheese or halloumi or ordinary cheese), they have vegan cheese sometimes to offer, if you just care to ask. For certainty there's on the menu one hamburger dish that is 100% vegan and the vegan kebab (and the big potato wedges and sweet jam wedges). The dishes come together with all seasonings, if you wish.

I rarely eat any fast-food that is so high-in-fat, but when such rare occasion happens, I'm more than glad that I had so amazing and unique food that almost could be labelled as 'healthy' (especially in the weekends, when you want food after the nightclubs at 4 a.m.... Vegemesta's open!

Pros: Excellent, tasty (fast-)food, Friendly staff and good service, Good vegan options
Cons: Gets easily crowded, Not a place for dining-in
