First Review by Poundie

Luke warm, average but lots of variety - Edit

I think you pay a lot for the view here... unfortunately we didn't book and got sat in a room without a view even on a Monday. Food wise... there was a great variety of salads and several hot options but really the individual dishes were barely above average for taste and they were all only luke warm. You have to pay extra for drinks unless you just want water and the desserts all had individual prices on them behind the glass so we didn't enquire about them.

Pros: variety

Cons: luke warm, expensive (pay for the view, may not get one), food not a high quality

Expensive as hell but worth it! - Edit

I visited this place with an idea of a cheap buffet as a fair option for a non swedish tourist. But no, it is a very elegant restaurant with fancy food and very eyepleasing view of the bay. It is still a all you can eat buffet but very expensive. Nontheless it is wort of paying it. The food is very uncommon and with many options, e.g. "vegan herring", with wide selection of pukka and yogi teas, and elaborated desserts, all included.

Pros: very elaborated dishes and desserts, all you can eat!, nice decoration and views

Cons: expensive, very expensive

Don't miss out - Edit

I had the best dinner in Stockholm at this wonderful place near Fotografiska. The buffet idea is great, there is no queuing with food on trays; everyone can take their time, stay as long as desired and have all-you-can-eat delicious fare (all vegan). The music is just right, both soothing and entertaining, and the view over the harbour is unmatched. Super friendly and welcoming staff. Also the décor is warm and inviting, like a traditional bistro in a thick-walled house, with some Asian accents - great, because I don't like the "sterile" type of vegan restaurant. It should be a pleasure to eat out and Hermans certainly provides that in every way.
PS: Also loved the written signs - about the bins! :D

great value friendly staff - Edit

This was my favourite vegan eatry in Stockholm. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. It's also nut allergy friendly and the staff are helpful in showing you what has nuts. The food is good and I like how there is some mock meat options and not just tofu, the mince was like actual mince it was crazy. The view is awesome too - overlooking the harbour and at night it's particularly special. Good value and good selection in the buffet and the desserts are tasty too. Highly recommended !!

Pros: great value and lots of options also tea and coffe

no bio food - Edit

Disappointed that they do not use bio food.
so we must eat the Chemicals.
and they use normal cheap gmo rice also and add sugar to food.

This need to be changed totally Before i would consider to go there again.
expensive in weekends and evenings after 3 smht considering its not bio.
was looking again and still they want to be cheap and use the gmo rice which is hazardous.
Before they wrote bio food outside which was a con after saying they were taking the sign away.(because they were maybe using some very few bio stuff)



Updated from previous review on 2017-03-16

Pros: view

Cons: no bio food, gmo rice., added sugar in food

Best Vegan joint in Stockholm - Edit

I've been vegan 17 years and been on three continents, 15 countries, and in the 5 days in Stockholm this place was the best. Buffet style's can be hit or miss, Hermans was not a miss. Also the view from the terrace outside is amazing if you are there in the mild weather. I didnt try desserts because I was so full from great buffet, but was told all desserts are vegan. Price was normal for Stockholm. We had to wait in line but luckily not too long. The staff all spoke perfect English as well. I would 100% go back. Plus added bonus smokers couldn't smoke outside on the terrace and ruin non-smokers fresh air.

Pros: All you can eat buffet., Close to Photography Museum/ great view., Pleasant staff/ non smoking on terrace YAY

Cons: Entrance is a bit off putting.

Good food - great view! - Edit

The food was above average, but not much more. We sat outside in the sun with a great view over the city. Look out for the seagulls or they will eat your food!

Huge line to get in.

great view - Edit

A buffet-style cafe with a stunning city view terrace. I didn't enjoy so much my meal as I did the view ;) nevertheless it is another more or less cheap option to eat decent veg food in such an expensive city as Stockholm.

A buffet with a view - Edit

We visited here on the last night of our holiday. As most reviewers have already mentioned, the panoramic views are stunning and we were lucky enough to get a prime spot outside. Normally I'm not a big fan of buffets but the food was very tasty especially the lasagne and curry and there were plenty of other options available to cater for everyone. You can also get some grilled veggies from the BBQ downstairs. As with most buffets you can expect buffet traffic whilst you wait for your food but the wait is worthwhile in the end. Student discount is also available, which was most welcome when we paid for your food.

Pros: Tasty vegan food, Panoramic views, Student discount

Cons: Buffet traffic

No organic food - Edit

They should use organic food and good quality ingredients if they want to charge so much. The food was nothing special.
I´m complaining because the sign outside the restaurant used to say that they cook with organic ingredients and it turned out to be false advertising just like in many other places.

Pros: good view

Cons: no organic food, nothing special

Come here for both food and view - Edit

This Smörgåsbord of vegan food is great! Plenty of salads, spreads and raw cakes. There are many options for the gluten free and raw foodie, on top of that - the view here is impeccable.

Pros: Student discounts, Beautiful view

Cons: Pricey for non-students

Nice vegan buffet - Edit

Lots of glutenfree choices. The buffet was quite small but sufficient I guess. Bit pricy though. Long waiting lines. We called to make a reservation but we were told they don't do reservations. When we arrived lots of tables were reserved. Places indoor are narrow and crowded. All in all we had a good meal. Tea, coffee and water for free (that's a good thing, otherwise the waiting line would be really long and it makes up for the price of the buffet). Most food tasted good.

Pros: lots of glutenfree options

Cons: Bit expensive, not much options, crowded

Cons: Pricey, Crowded in weekends

there's a grill downstairs - Edit

All you can eat, coffee included but dessert is separate.

If you go, make sure to go outside with your plate and downstairs to get some grilled veggies. We completely missed out on this as there's no signage (at least none in English that I could see) and the cashier didn't mention it at all. We only spotted it on the way out because we saw the smoke.

Pros: all you can eat , variety

Great buffet and wonderful atmosphere - Edit

Great buffet, you can barely try everything before you are full ;). Included in the price for the buffet are hot and cold dishes, water, tea and coffee. For other drinks and desserts you pay extra. Price for the buffet: 195 SEK, with a valid student ID you pay half price for the buffet if you buy an extra drink! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is very good.

Pros: 100 % vegan, good value if you are a student.

Cons: Maybe a bit on the pricy side if you are not a stu

Classic spot in Stockholm - Edit

Hermans has been around since the '90s and is still an institution for vegans and vegetarians all over town – a classic spot still going strong. To be clear, nowadays the entire buffet is 100% vegan. This hasn't always been the case so I totally get some of the other comments about this. Feel free to ask the staff if you need assurance, the place could probably make this clearer though e.g. on their website.

About the food itself. It's a great buffet with plenty of choices in line with different types of cuisine, but what really stands out is the lasagna that you just can't get enough of. They did try to replace it with something vaguely resembling vegan shepherd's pie some time ago, that didn't work out, was a bad decision, and one that has now been corrected.

At around 25 USD the price is a bit too high in my opinion, but I'd say it's still worth it. In summertime you won't find a better view of Stockholm, especially if you pick seats outdoors closest to the overlook. Do note that students get a 50% discount on weekdays after 3 PM and all day on weekends. If you're eligible for this (with some type of ID to prove it) this is suddenly the best value for money you'll find in vegan Stockholm.

As a vegan visiting or travelling through Stockholm, don't miss Hermans, you will enjoy it, as many here have for many years.

Best cakes, vegan lasagna and view in Stockholm - Edit

This is a classic for several solid reasons. Everything served here is vegan and (almost) everything tastes great. If you are a student the buffet is about 10€ cheaper. The view is wonderful, with a panorama of Stockholm's prettiest parts. In the summer time a big garden seats well over a hundred and offers hammocks for relaxation once you are stuffed from the buffet. The coconut cake is the best one they offer. They carry raw desserts as well. In the Christmas time they make the buffet Christmas inspired. That's a downgrade as they remove their best course: the awesome vegan lasagna.
