fresh and enjoyable

Posted on 07 / 20 / 2014

I went to zurück zum glück with my omnivore father for Sunday lunch. Both of us enjoyed our meals, the food was fresh and the staff was friendly. The service took a little while, but it was a busy day, so that is understandable. The only minus is the small variety of vegan options. Besides the vegan breakfast option, there were two soups, two salads and one potato meal (which I had). Veg options are clearly marked and some of the meals are offered as a full and half a serving. I had trouble finishing the full one, but if you are really hungry, this is your option.

Pros: veg options clearly marked, friendly staff, fresh ingredients
Cons: few vegan options

Finally vegan options in famous breakfast spot

Posted on 04 / 19 / 2014

"Zurueck zum Glueck" (German for "Return to Happiness") is a good example how the vegan movement has taken up momentum in the last years.

While it has always been targeted on organic food and was catering to a young clientele, some years ago, it was very hard to find vegan items on the menu and there were only a few token vegetarian options. The restaurant has been run by two sisters who studied "Oecotrophologie" (a German study that is more or less a mixture of nutrition and running a restaurant) for some years, and it has been famous for the nice place to hang out, the location, the nice terrace, the friendly staff and the cosy decoration.

Now, they do offer several vegan options (other than salads, although they also have those), a vegan breakfast (they are famous as a breakfast place), a vegan burger and some vegetarian options, and they even clearly mark them on the menu. All the coffee specialties are also available in soymilk varieties.

I liked their burger, and the soup. The salad with mint cous-cous tasted interesting, but for me mint did not harmonize perfectly with the salad. Try to go for their breakfast on a weekend, it is definitely one of the nicer places to hang out in Hannover.

Pros: Vegan options, Friendly staff and cosy, Nice location
