Lindener Marktplatz 3, Hannover, Germany, 30449

Serves meat, vegan options available. A bar with a small menu. One of the owners is vegan, the other is not. Almost every dish on the menu (e.g. burger, pizza, hotdog, etc.) is available also as vegan variety (including mayonnaise and dressings) and the staff is observant to not serve non-vegan food to vegans. Monthly vegan meetings held drawing about 30 people.

First Review by AndyT

Früher war alles besser - Edit

Der Besuch beim Centrum war leider enttäuschend. Früher war ich immer (!) begeistert von den Gerichten, die Qualität scheint aber nachgelassen zu haben (diese Bewertung schreibe ich erst nach dem dritten nicht ganz zufriedenem Besuch). Ich bin kein Experte, es ist im Endeffekt Geschmacksache. Auf dem veganen Chilli Cheese Burger war kein Hauch von Chilli zu schmecken. Die Patties waren überwürzt. Die Salatbeilage war welk und wärmer als der Burger und die Wedges. Die vegane Mayo war gut. Die Weinschorle war warm, ohne einen Hauch Gas und ohne Eiswürfel. Dies wurde aber an der Bar behoben. Leider sind auch die Stühle draußen sehr unbequem.

nice place! - Edit

Centrum is a pretty cool place. as far as i know it's run by a vegan and a meat eater which is why they cater for both and take being vegan seriously.
the vegan menu is huge and has a lot of different dishes! i had a doner once and loved it. another time i ate a burger which wasn't overwhelming but ok.

i LOVE their beer garden and sometimes come for drinks only. service is nice & quick.
they do football screenings on a huge screen outside during euro & world cups!

Pros: location, variety of food, service

Cons: not everything is super tasty

For everyone - Edit

A good location for vegans, who want to go out with non-vegans. All dishes can be ordered vegan.
The vegan cheeseburger is fantastic.

Yummy vegan fast food - Edit

The Centrum is temporary the best spot in Hannover for vegan burgers and other fast food. They offer most of the dishes in vegan. But be careful: Sometimes they come in trouble with that and you get it in vegetarian or with meat. Once it happened to me. I ordered a burger in vegan but I got with meat. But when I complained about it I got a new burger for free. I think that's okay then. :) The other 10 times I went to this restaurant I always got what I'd ordered.
Taste the burgers, especially the Chiliburger is my very favourite! :) Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff.

Pros: Delicious!, Fair prices, Nice atmosphere

Cons: You can't pay with cash card, Sometimes trouble with orders

Great food, but be aware for unvegan/unvegetarian - Edit

First- i like the athmosphere. The bar is full of trashy vintage furniture (with some leather sofas, what i dont like).
The staff feels like home and it depends very much on how is serving you- there are some great and some unfriendly staffmembers.
The food is tasty too. But here its the same- sometimes you get great food, sometimes the same dish a few days later tastes not so good. Maybe they have two different cooks- i dont know!
But the biggest problem is that they serve vegan, vegetarian and meat options. And they often mess it up, you order vegan and get meat, you order vegan and get cheese...
You have to be very careful and should mention vegan 100times and ask when the food comes if its really vegan.
Thats annoying for me as a guest and for the staff also.
Its also important to mention, that 2/3 is for smokers and the doors dont close between the areas, so it could be a bit smokey

Pros: good food, huge portions

Cons: you often get unvegan food, unfriendly staff SOMETIMES

AndyT 13 Mar 2013 - I have been there maybe 10 times, and have never had any slip-ups (as in getting non-vegan options), but I witnessed during one of the "vegan meetings" that a lady who was not aware that they have non-vegan options orderes scrambled eggs (assuming it was scrambled tofu from the slightly misleading menu) and the waiter did not point it out to her (as they serve people with all kinds of diets).

Pay attention to the little signs in the menu that denote vegan, vegetarian (containing milk/egg) or meat options, and make clear that you want it vegan.

Pub with vegan options - Edit

The 'Centrum Linden' is a modern pub or bistro with an unusual option - one of the owners is vegan, and nearly all dishes on the menu (maybe 95%) are offered in an 'original' and in a 'vegan' variety. For that reason, it was a 'natural' location for some of Hannover's Vegan meetings (the other being the 'Loving Hut') and most of the participants (~30) praised the taste of the food. Of course we could not compare the quality of both versions, but the vegen versions of the dishes that were tasted passed the taste test. Nice outdoor seating availagle on a little city square, althouth in the evening, the patrons have to move inside due to noise regulations (but then it is more of a bar/cocktail place anyway).

Pros: wide variety of dishes, great taste

Cons: some of the staff might be more friendly
