Veg Food (the 80ies way) - Edit

Whenever I eat at Iden, it is kind of a time travel back to the 80ies, when my parents used to demonstrate to the save the German forest from dying and we ate nothing but unripe spelt grain - but with lots of creamy sauce! All environmentalist, but may-be not that healthy.

This restaurant has all the raw and vegetarian food you can ask for and choose from, as well as vegan options (which are clearly indicated on small signs alongside each dish). If you take a bite of everything, it will make your plate rather expensive, as they weigh the food at the cash point.

You will also need a little luck to find a place alongside Stuttgart's senior citizens - especially during lunch hours and on Saturdays. But it's definitely worth the try.

Pros: Splendid salad bar

Cons: Canteen atmosphere, old-fashioned

Great lunch option - Edit

The opening hours and the self-service are clear indicators that Iden is not meant to be the perfect restaurant for a romantic dinner. But for lunch it is an attractive option in Stuttgart.

You take the food from a buffet. There are several dishes like risotto or potatoes au gratin and sides like boiled potatoes or pumpkin. You can choose freely, everything is weighted and costs the same (a bit more then 2 Euro per 100g in November 2014). Additional there are a soup, some deserts, and cakes. All dishes are labled with the ingredients (in German) and there are some vegan options. Depending on your appetite, you can eat for 8 to 16 Euros.

The food is tasty and does not taste like cafeteria food. It was not as warm as a dish served right from the kitchen, but it was ok.

Pros: close to city, great place for lunch, not expensive, ingrediants given dishes

Cons: more cafeteria then restaurant

Decent place to eat - Edit

Im not sure why most people have found this place hard to spot. It is fairly visible from the main road. The other side is located in a external courtyard. As others have said, the food is cafeteria like and some of the food was good but a few things were just okay. Vegan labelled but not that many included hot items. Centrally located. Was cheap too (or maybe that was because I had come from Switzerland?)

Pros: Price, Most of food good, Staff

Cons: Not much warm vegan

Acceptable - Edit

The place is big, clean, cheap and the staff is friendly, but there were only a couple of vegan options, the food was already cold and we had to eat in a hurry because it closes quite early.

Pros: Clean, Cheap, Friendly

Cons: Closing time very early, Just a few vegan options

Iden, Stuttgart - Edit

This place is centrally located but is set back off the road - its visible from only a small part of the street.

The first thing to strike me about this place inside is it is pretty big. There must be 100 seats in there for customers.

Its a cafeteria style set up where you grab a tray and help yourself to whats on offer then pay by weight. The selection of salads is massive. The hot food is geared largely towards lacto-ovo veggies bet there was a couple of dishes labelled vegan when I was in there. There is a separate coffee bar inside.

If you go there and its closed vegi voodoo king is less than 5 mins walk away and is open longer hours.

Pros: Central, Open long hours, vegan veggie friendly

Cons: Not the biggest choice for vegan veggies

Not Bad - Edit

The restaurant is a basic cafeteria style bar/buffet. It's a bit on the pricey side -- the food is weighed (I believe it's somewhere between 6-10 Euro per 100 grams). The staff is very friendly, and was more than willing to walk through the buffet with me and point to the vegan options. The food was not bad, but it was certainly not the best vegetarian restaurant I've come across in Germany.

Pros: Healthy Selection, Friendly Staff

Cons: A Bit Pricey

Good - Edit

A nice buffet hot dishes, salad and dessert. Vegan items are marked. The food was pretty good, but a tad bit "cafeteria-esque." FYI: It's set back away from the street a little bit, (behind the escalators) I almost didn't find it.

Pros: Decent Variety, Vegan Options

Cons: Cafeteria vibe
