Easy to like - Edit

This is a canteen like little vegetarian place nice with friend staff.
A place where people from all walks of life come and enjoy an inexpensive meal (top up if you are hungry is included in the price).
Basic, filling and "no-fuss" vegetarian food.

Pros: A place for everyone, Inexpensive, Basic food

Try the takeout - Edit

The food is good but avoid the falafel which tastes sweet and is often a bit dry. If you buy a full takeout box and fill up with some slices of bread, you have lunch for two. The park Skinnarviksparken is the perfect place to eat it, with a view of the water, the old town and the city hall.

Pros: Cheap, Filling

nothing special-no eco food - Edit

nothing special. its cheap but its no eco stuff and they use crappy cheap holland cheese.
they also add sugar to sme foods. big minus
The food is in the middle. and the rice is normal gmo rice(no bio food)
and the oils are some cheap oils.
they should raise the price a Little and serve better food and bio.

very nice food - Edit

Went there today, and with the exception of 3 vegetarian dishes (Lasagna, Zaziki and a curry), everything from the buffet was vegan which included for example a potatoe/carrot/zucchini stew, white bean stew, saffron rice, hummus, falafel, lentil paste, couscous, marinated beetroot among many others. Tee, coffee and bread is included. You can refill as much as you want, which I did and I was more than good after the second refill. Stayed a little longer just drinking tea and reading, the atmosphere was pleasant for that. Staff was friendly. Buffet without soup 95 kronor, which is a very good price for Stockholm. Recommended!

Pros: price , menu almost entirely vegan , relaxed atmosphere

Cons: it could be 100% vegan ;)

You get what you pay for - Edit

All you can eat buffet for only 89 kronor (9€). Drinks are bought separate. Mostly vegan. Very cheap compared to other places in Stockholm. The dishes were quite tasty, but there were some that weren't even touched by other customers, so we kept away of those. The food wasn't the best quality and that's coming from someone who would eat berries of the side of the road. If you're looking some place to try falafels for the first time - wouldn't recommend as they weren't that great. Overall the food was quite good, but not great.

Pros: Mostly vegan, all you can eat, inexpensive

Cons: Food wasn't delicious, quite cold

a bit upsetting - Edit

Tried it for the first time today. The warm dishes were barely warm. And lots of the cold meals are kinda boring. Looks a bit like school food. Maybe a bad day for them but doesn t give the want to come back

Legumes - You'll go here one assumes - Edit

We found a great selection of really tasty dishes at a surprisingly good value price. If the weather is nice then you can sit outside and watch the world go by.

Service was a bit curt and functional; but that was outweighed by the good set of dishes to choose from.

Definitely recommended.

Pros: Good value, Tasty range of dishes, Outdoor seating

Cons: Functional service

Cheap and great food! - Edit

I love this place! Its 89kr for a dinner buffé, all you can eat, which is really cheap! The food was delicious! Especially the humous was perfect! It's not a fancy place but great for a chill night of tasty vegan/vegetarian buffé dinner with friends!

Nice price - Edit

Good price and lots of vegan options. The reason I didn't give a full rating was because of the lack of fresh veggies and options. They only had a salad which was drenched in dressing. I also found most of the warm dished very oily.

Over-all I'd recommend it but don't have high expectations. Bring meat eating friends as they'll for sure enjoy the different options and flavors. You won't leave hungry.

Pros: all you can eat , inexpensive , lots of vegan options

Cons: few fresh veggies , heavy on the oil

Pretty basic but very affordable - Edit

A very cosy place with a nice and helpful staff. They pointed out instantly all the vegan options which were many. Only few were non-vegan. The food was on the average side but still pretty good. My companion wasn't that thrilled. Anyway, as this is an all-you-can-eat place the price was very affordable. Even coffee/tea was included and soy milk was available. Works best as a quick lunch place for someone who doesn't expect something mindblowing.

Pros: Mainly vegan options, Cheap

Cons: Basic food, nothing fancy, Hummus wasn't good

Nice little diner - Edit

We just dropped in because it's near to my sisters apartment and we are surprised how good it was. Légumes has a fairly good variety of different dishes and all besides three dishes have been vegan. The price is very good (85 for the buffet with all you can eat) and we enjoyed the evening there.

Pros: a lot of vegan dishes, cheap

Average - Edit

A very, very average place. Nothing that sticks out, except the fact that it actually is vegetarian. I usually end up chosing the vegetarian alternative in an ordinary restaurant.

Great for lunch - Edit

Our hotel were not far from this place and we've had a lunch here. The place offers a big outdoor sitting area that is not directly on the road. You can enjoy your meal without too much noise outside. In terms of food, it offers a vegetarian buffet which is mainly vegan. You can ask for only vegan items and will have a big plate full of delicious food: falafel, hummus, fried vegetables, salads. You can come back to take food as much as you can. Tea and coffee is included which makes the lunch really inexpensive. The staff is friendly and helpful. A perfect place for a quick lunch.

Pros: mainly vegan, not too expensive, friendly staff, nice outdoor

Met my expectations - Edit

Most of the buffet dishes were vegan, it was cheap for the amount of food you could get and the falafel was surprisingly good (i like falafel but they trend to be pretty bad in most places)

Pros: Most of if vegan, Not too expensive, Near a subway

Cons: It could get crowded during rush hour, Not very cosy

Little dissappointed - Edit

Visited here with a company of ten. Considering how much hassle it was when half of the group were kids, the staff was very nice and helpful.

The food was nothing special. Some of the food was not vegan and you have to ask which ones. There was few sallads or other very fresh dishes. Some of the warm dishes were tasty. But.

Why this inconvenience of asking for the food? On a buffet one likes to taste new dishes first, very small portions to find out which are the best. Now I wasn't sure about the taste because everything was mixed up on the plate. Also had to eat a lot of something that I didn't really like and then couldn't enjoy the dishes that I liked.

As much as I would like to praise a vegetarian restaurant, I have to say I wont come again as long as the system of getting the food remains the same.

Pros: Some tasty dishes, Friendly staff, Inexpensive

Cons: Portions assemled by request, Not solely vegan

Boring interior - great food - Edit

It's cheap.
It's good.
It will fully satisfy even the "but isn't that a vegetarian restaurant?!"-guy.

I have been here twice and you know what you're going to get. A plate and a served buffé.
I'm not saying that the interior is terrible, but why not make it a little bit more cosy? Fix those lightbulbs maybe? Paint the walls? Make it not look like your nighbourhood pizzeria!

Pros: Sneeze protective glass over the buffé, Eat as much as you like, Cheap

Cons: Boring atmoshpere, Smile at the customers?, Better cups for coffee/tea

I love this place! - Edit

In need of some vegetables on my first trip to Stockholm, we came across this magical "legume" cafe and it met all of our needs. Wonderful vegetarian buffet of middle eastern style including salad, vegetables, hummus, falafel, börek, lasagne, moussaka. I always think I'll go back for seconds, but it's so hearty I rarely do. Water, coffee/tea and bread are included in the price, which at 80k is pretty great. The staff are always really friendly too.

Pros: Delicious food, Variety, Staff

fabulous - Edit

den här är min favorit vegetarisk resturang i Stockholm. De har också en bylligt grej- det "hussets smörgås" som är en ganska stor smörgås med många grönsaker, homous och sås på- det kan blir vegan om man bara frågga att de sätta ingen yoghurt på. 49:- spän bara! Man kan ta soppa för 50:- också. Stora platen är 85:- men är helt fantastisk-

Pros: Jätte gott mat, Två billigt option, Vänliga

Cons: Cafe eller Te kostar extra, ingen mer!

Many vegan disches to choose from on the buffet, and they let you get seconds. What is there not to like?

Good value - Edit

This restaurant offers a vegetarian buffet, most of the salad dishes and a few of the hot dishes seemed to be vegan. All is prepared before hand and kept warm behind the counter. There seemed to be quite some variety in the dishes, they had falafel, börek, lasagne, mousaka, a curry-type dish + several salads. Water and coffee/tea are included in the very cheap price. Seemed popular with locals (regulars).

Pros: Variety in dishes, Good value, Quick bite

Cons: Food not warm enough

Decent, affordable buffet - Edit

I popped in here for a quick lunch before my flight back home. I thought it'd be a bit far to get to on foot from Slussen, but it was actually very much walkable. Took me less than 10 minutes.

They served an all-you-can-eat buffet for SEK80. The day I went, only one warm main course and the falafel were not vegan, all the rest of the main courses and salads (more than 10 choices in total) were. Staff told me there were eggs in the falafel, which IMO was a completely unnecessary ingredient. But well, it was what it was.

Technically you can go for seconds, thirds, fourths or however many times you'd like, but as the display cabinets are only open on their side, you have to tell them which one and how much you want and they will pick it for you. I can understand their reason for doing so, but I just found it a little annoying. Plus I don't really like different foods all piled up on one another, and I'm sure some people feel the same, in here I'd just have to suck it up or risk coming off as pesky.

Granted, all that was just my pet peeve. Food was good, price couldn't be beat, staff was cordial, and the place was spotless. Would definitely come again next time in town.

Pros: great value, good food

Cons: can't pick own food
