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.
Vegan options, Friendly staff and cosy, Nice location
