perfect for students, timing is critical

4 Posted on 05 / 26 / 2013

I love coming here for working lunches, or to meet with language exchange partners. As other reviewers have commented, the kitchen is not always open—they will serve food in the evening, but only if it is left over from lunch. Get there at noon or 12:30 or they will sell out of the good stuff.

Super relaxed, all veggie and mostly vegan, inexpensive. The food is simple and utilitarian, but always satisfying.

Cheap and cozy

3 Posted on 12 / 09 / 2011

The place was very hard to find, as the numbering of the street was quite confusing and there was no sign for the cafe whatsoever. But somehow we went up some stairs and then though a gate and then up more stairs and finally we found some door, which we went through, so eventually we were in, but we wasn't sure till the last moment.
The place is very cozy and quiet. We ordered a vegetable soup with coconut milk (for 3.2 euros) and the main which they still had left at 4 pm. (for 3.8 euros), but we have seen on the blackboard that they had at least 6-7 during the day and all of them were vegan. The portions are enormous. The soup had great flavors but the vegetables were a bit overcooked, the main was a bit tasteless and overdone. We also tried some "apricot-crunchy cake" which was fabulous.
It is a real treasure that we've found a vegan-friendly place in such a small city like Jena. The food was not the best I can imagine, but with the place being so cozy and cheap, we were very satisfied what we had.

Cafe Wagner, Jena

3 Posted on 10 / 22 / 2010

I should have listened to merciless666's review and just assumed it would be closed straight away. When we got there, there was a sign saying that there were renovations going for the next three weeks and the location closed temporarily which really disappointed us since we had looked up their website beforehand and it didn't have any information on that at all. It seems, it's part of their method. However, I will give it another try if I ever get back to Jena.

Relaxed atmosphere, lunches on weekdays

3 Posted on 07 / 22 / 2010

Menu changes daily. Mostly vegan. Food available on weekdays at lunchtime. They do not keep a huge stock, so coming late in the afternoon may limit your choices - be warned. According to a staff member, they sometimes serve food on Sundays after 3 pm. This place is very cheap, a meal is usually around 2,5 - 3,5 Euros, tasty (usually vegan) desserts for 1 - 1.2. Drinks, wine, beer and music. Wagner Cafe is a club / pub place in the evenings, with film screenings and live music. Check their website for program (http://www.wagnerverein-jena.de). Board games evening a few times a month. A good place to go, especially that there are no alternatives for vegan / vegetarian food in Jena.

Pros: Cheap, Friendly Staff
Cons: Basic meals, nothing too fancy.

    I should have listened to you before I went there. When I was in Jena, it was closed due to renovations aswell... One shouldn't try during the semester break I presume...
