Veganer Käse gegen Aufpreis

Veganen Käse gibt es nur gegen Aufpreis (2). Die Vegetaria ist ganz gut, aber 9,90 Euro plus 2 Euro Euro dafür recht teuer. Es ist keine aufwändige (wie bei Pizza Zampano oder Rund & Bunt) oder besonders große Pizza. Auf der Karte ist keine explizit vegane Pizza, zum Beispiel ganz ohne Käse. Ich bin kein Fan von Käse-Alternativen. Da wäre etwas mit Hummus oder mehr Tomatensoße schon gut. Halt etwas, das auch ohne Käse genug fett und „Saftigkeit“ bietet. Gelegentlich mal ganz gut, aber kein veganes Highlight.

Great Italian pizza

This place offers Italian pizza made in a traditional log wood oven. You can add vegan cheese for 1€ extra. I always had the vegetarian pizza with lots of vegetables on it plus vegan cheese. You can pretty much customise your own vegan pizza just adding vegetables and vegan cheese. My pizza was always really delicious so I can definitely recommend this place.

Pros: offers vegan cheese, made in a log wood oven so authentic Italian

Cons: serves meat

Great vegan options for the area

Had the broccoli pizza with vegan cheese and focaccia and both were excellent. In an area with otherwise few vegan options, this was worth the extra time to walk to

Pros: Great food, Friendly service

Good pizza

Even during COVID-19 you can get a good Vegan pizza here. They keep space free between tables, and no reservation needed.

Couldn't tell it was vegan

The vegan ("Veganem") cheese tasted like the dairy kind. Great find with a fun lively atmosphere in the middle of a quiet suburban area. Walking distance to Messe.

Pros: Vegan cheese, Good toppings, Friendly staff and fun atmosphere

Cons: Not all vegan, Very direct, no BS service can put some people off

Cozy neighborhood restaurant

A cozy neighborhood pizzeria that offers every dish optional with vegan cheese ( 1 EUR). Nothing fancy but the Pizza tastes good.

Amazing pizza, subpar service

I came here not really knowing what to expect because the other reviews are a bit old. The pizza was AMAZING. I had no problems ordering a vegan pizza, it says on the menu that all food can be served with vegan cheese for 1€ extra.

The service was very slow and I had to wait a long time for someone to come to my table, even though it’s a small place. The waitress was mostly just hanging out at the bar. Otherwise this is a great place!

Pros: Vegan pizza is amazing

Cons: Service is slow

Great pizza place with traditional log wood oven

First of all, the pizza tastes great. Variations for vegans could be more creative, but everyone is free to create her or his own special with wilmersburger pizzaschmelz.

What I really do not appreciate, is staff mocking about plant based diets, in front of fully occupied tables. I consider that extremely unprofessionel and potentially embarrassing for the customer. After talking to them I got the impression that they think the only reason to leave dairy products out of diets are lactose intolerance and other "illnesses".

Spiritually, the still have got a long way to go, but I can cope with that and enjoy a pizza once in a while...

They seem to be used to vegan customers by now. Although I am sure there is no more understanding of the background/benefit of plant based diets, they seem to be proud of their returning vegan customers and groups of regulars.

Improved the rating to 3.5 (4) cows... ;-))

Vegane Holzofenpizza!

Tolle (eigentlich "normale") Pizzeria, die aber erkannt hat, dass es vor allem in Frankfurt viele Veganer gibt und daher veganen Käse im Angebot hat.

Die Auswahl ist nicht riesig aber lecker und das Ambiente ist wirklich gut!

A very pleasant experience

The pizza was probably the best vegan pizza we've ever had. The staff were really friendly towards us, although they did roll their eyes a bit at our veganism and foreignness :)

The restaurant wasn't too crowded on a saturday night, and the kitchen seems to be open until at least an hour before they close.

Pros: Great pizza, Friendly atmosphere, Open late

Cons: TV on (we didn't mind though)

cheeky vegan

I found the same with the staff rolling their eyes about me ordering the wilmers cheese (i never explained to them about the vegan thing, just ordered the veg pizza) they are quite friendly in there and I have been a couple times, but wish they had a better attitude towards veganism, it would bring them so much business!

I think it was a weird sense of humor... I felt slightly offended during my first visit.
In the meantime they acquired enough routine with vegan guests and act more professionally.
