go here and not the other location! - Edit

the other location is next door and is an expensive buffet with staff that is not knowledgeable or friendly about vegan or vegetarian food. they are easily confused when typing into google maps.

this store on the other hand, had a wide selection and was interesting to see all of the vegan meat products.

All the vegan essentials - Edit

The Hiltl "metzg" has a wide selection of vegan cheeses, including raclette and fondue (available seasonally), and plenty of specialty items that are otherwise hard to find. Relatively expensive for items that you can find in other stores, however.

Pros: So many vegan cheeses

Cons: Expensive

Allaround convincing. - Edit

The first impression upon entering is overwhelming. This store simply hast the atmosphere that speaks for itself, and all which it offers. Many of the sold products, like the Falaffels, are self made, and they have a wide variety of instant foods, like Seitan, Tofu, and vegan cheese, as well as basic ingredients and a small selection of produce. The Staff was always willing to help with any questions that might come up, and are well informed on their own products. The hazlenut latte is amazing. Their products are clearly labled, however, keep in mind that this is a vegetarian store with Vegan options.

Pros: Great and exotic selection., Helpful staff.

Delicious & Unusual - Edit

This is a great place for people that love mock meats and traditional meals just without the meat.

They have different flavours of Tofu, Quorn and Seitan. They also have many traditional Swiss Food such as "Schinkengipfeli" (kind of a Croissant with "Ham" Filling) or "Zürcher Geschnetzeltes" (Zurich Ragout) in a vegetarian/vegan version. A Highlight is the Vegi Tatar! On Toast it comes shockingly close to a real Tatar. They offer also a lot of vegan wines, sauces and herbs.

The Take away section is pretty small, they have mostly Sandwiches and Salads. But their BLT Sandwich is just amazing.

The staff tells you all about the preparation and is very helpfull. It's pretty expensive, but you don't go there for daily groceries. It's something you can buy for a holiday or if Omni's are coming to visit you and you want to serve something special.

Everything is clearly declared (vegetarian/vegan).
