Cheap and cozy
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.
