I didn't get the chance to go there, but we checked out their new location and menu. To my surprise: this restaurant is very discreet with the fact that it's fully vegan! It doesn't say vegan in big letters anywhere and I only saw it specified on the menu. I'm very happy with this, as it lowers the threshold for non vegans to go here and normalizes vegan restaurants:)

It’s okay.

An all vegan eatery and probably the only one in Wuppertal.
I liked the concept at first but the food was just okay. It’s was just pricey for what you get. It wasn’t special and the rice was dry, sadly. I had a curry with the rice, so it was okay (again).
The cake for dessert was bad - super dry and a weird aftertaste.

The interior was cute but really small and we had to watch out not to touch the other customers next to us because there was just a little space to sit. I hope this chances at the new place.

Pros: The curry , Cute place

Cons: The dessert, Rice , Little space

Eröffnet am 9.9.23 an neuer Adresse

Wir sind heute extra hingefahren und standen vor verschlossener Tür. Ein Schild verweist auf den Umzug nach Elberfeld. Neue Adresse laut Mail der Besitzerin: Schöne Gasse 6. Die Sterne fordert die App- ich kenne das Lokal noch nicht, werde später aber mal hingehen.

Amazing food

This is a buffet style restaurant where you pay by weight. The food is amazing. I got salad with nut peso, rice with roasted aubergines, potato salad and curry vegetables. It was all so good. Interior is also very nice (but small), with plants and a nice wooden interior.

Great concept & Delicious vegan meals

What a surprise... Such a cosy little eatery with the most yummie meals. You choose the size of your plate and fill it with all different kinds of healthy vegan dishes. We had three curries with mango chutney and potato salad and bread/ rice. And off course a fantastic 'cheese' cake with coffee.

Pros: Cosy spot. Delicious food. Cheap.

Cons: A little out of town. Near the Sculpture Garden

Positiv überrascht

Aufgrund des geringen Angebots an rein veganen Restaurants in Wuppertal waren wir positiv überrascht von dem gemütlichen Café. Erwartet haben wir maximal ein paar Standard- Avocadotoasts und Acaibowls. Aber das Café bietet eine tolle übersichtliche Auswahl an sehr kreativen, lecker gewürzten Gerichten! Das Mittagsbuffet war preis-leistungs-technisch super und der Kuchen mit der beste vegane Kuchen, den ich je gegessen habe! Dazu ist die Besitzerin wirklich nett.
Wir kommen gerne wieder! :)

Pros: Toll gewürzte Gerichte, Nette Bedienung

Cons: Leider an einer sehr befahrenen Strasse, Wenig Sitzplätze (reservieren?)

Great vegan cooking class

The restaurant is small but very cosy. We went there for a cooking workshop, which is organised on Saturdays once a month (as announced on the website).
Mechtild and Britta were super enthusiastic and organised a lovely workshop.

With a group of 6 we could pick from a wide range of vegetables, herbs and fruits to dive into the improvisation cooking. In contrary to other classes we didn't follow a recipe but learn techniques we can apply in our daily cooking. We made several dishes including Artichokes, Caribbean peanut butter stew, yellow beet salad and prune cabbage stir fry. As a final treat we got a delicious dessert.
After class you get the recipes, and suggestions how to vary on this theme.

Just as lunch, the workshop is reasonably priced.

Pros: original twist to the recipe-based workshops, daily changing menu (check website), vegan cheese for sale

Besuch schon lang geplant, endlich mal geschafft....

Aufgrund der Öffnungszeiten haben wir es leider bisher nie geschafft, den geplanten Besuch in die Tat umzusetzen. Heute hat es dann endlich geklappt :0)
Das Lokal und die Atmosphäre haben uns sehr gut gefallen. Super auch die Hundedecke unter dem Tisch!
Wir waren recht spät dran (3/4 Stunde vor Ladenschluss), aber es gab noch genügend Auswahl und es war sehr lecker. Der arabische Kaffeekuchen zum Nachtisch war ein weiteres Highlight ;0)

Pros: kleines gemütliches Ladenlokal , Essen kann selbst zusammengestellt werden, Hunde willkommen

Cons: Salat/warmes Essen/Sauce.. alles auf 1 Teller, Öffnungszeiten
