Great restaurant - Edit

Food is very good, usually a lot of vegan options. Their buffé has been a bit different the times I have been there, which I think is great. They always put signs telling you what is non-vegan and if it contains gluten etc.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff, A lot of vegan options

Cons: Is not entirely vegan, Only open during weekdays

Good! - Edit

It's not fancy, at all. Some dishes are better than others, yes. But I really enjoy Legume. "Almost vegan" is the best you can get in Uppsala (for the moment I hope!) and it's a nice place with friendly staff.

Uppsala favorite - Edit

My favorite vegetarian restaurant in Uppsala. Their buffe are fully vegan but one or two courses contains dairy. There is always signs telling you which food is vegan and not. Cozy and heart warming atmosphere. If you are an student you can get 10% discount! Nice staff! Love this place :)

Pros: Vegan-friendly, Buffé, Yummy

Cons: Opening times

Great service! - Edit

We were in Uppsala for a swimming competition, and we were a little late to Legume but the owner made us fantastic take away portions.
The next day we were early enough and we are fantastic food.
Mostly vegan, great sauces, delicious.

Pros: great venue, good service , good quality vegan dishes, reasonable price

Cons: maybe short open times, miss some vegan cakes!

Good, but improvement is needed - Edit

I've been to Legume twice since it opened. It is a very good thing that Uppsala got it second vegetarian restaurant - it's long overdue!
The restaurant's style is simple. Not very much has been invested (so far?) in regards to interior decorating. This has consequences in regard to the acoustic conditions (it gets very loud).

Now, on to the food. The buffé is rich, but lacks in seasoning. The falafel is quite hard and the spinach in the pasta rolls could without doubt get a double checking in regard to taste and texture - salt, anyone?
The question of seasoning, salt och texture goes for pretty much everything, starting with the cold dishes such as the olive tapenade which at Legume was almost (I hate to say it) disgusting...

I however adore the hummus and love to oven cooked potatoes. I would love to come back here for a third and fourth meal when the restaurant has had more time to settle and perfected their dishes and interior comfort.

Pros: Nice outside, Friendly staff, Great potential to be the best in town

Cons: Noisy inside, Lack of seasoning (herbs, salt etc), No red tea is served (better for veg)

Superb vegetarian/vegan bufe - Edit

This is the second pure vegetarian restaurant in Uppsala, and I must say it's fantastic. Very good bufe, with a lot of choices, and with things marked when they are non-vegan. A must to visit.

Great! - Edit

Finally, Uppsala got a second veggie restaurant! Most of the things in the lunch buffét were vegan (I think the tzatziki was the only thing non-vegan) and I really liked it. They labeled things with the most common allergens (like gluten and lactose) but I would've wished for more detailed ingredient lists as I'm sensitive to a number of foods (like onions and garlic, that tends to hide in most dishes...). Do try the sesame-fried potatoes! Really good buffet considering the prize, and friendly staff.
