First Review by Harald

Yummy cafe - Edit

Was there on a Saturday when they have the normal cafe business. Had a very yummy soup and then a slice of cake and a coffee. They had different plantbased milks to choose from. It was all very yummy. The book shelf is very impressive - if you're looking for anything on veganism, you can surely find it there.

Nice place to spend time, good vegan food! - Edit

You'd definitely have to know that this café is a non profit project to build a variety of vegan options in Erlangen. All the people there work for free in their spare time and you feel it, when you are there - very friendly and good-to-talk-to people, offering help where they can :)

Great to have but needs improvement - Edit

I think it's great that Erlangen finally has a vegan restaurant. Unfortunately, I wasn't very impressed by the food though (Burger tasted a bit sour, cake was rather dry), nor did I like the feel of the place (very cold atmosphere). However, the little exhibition of books (vegan and vegetarian cookbooks, and other books related to veganism) is fantastic and you can browse through them while waiting for your food or having a coffee. Altogether, I'll give it 3 Happy Cows and would love to see some improvements in the food. I'll definitely give it another try.

Pros: 100% vegan, books

Cons: food needs improvement, cold atmosphere

First vegan location in Erlangen - Edit

The Lesecafe "Anstaendig essen" was founded in August 2012 as a temporary project of the Erlangen Adult Ecuation Center and the regional group of the German Vegetarian Society, and focused on sustainability aspects in nutrition. It offered lots of events, and more than 150 books on display in the Cafe provided additional information. Because of its success the Lesecafe was not closed at the end of the project period, but is now run by a new owner on a permanent basis. In principle the concept did not change, the new owner plans to set up new events and the books are still part of the concept. The menu offers a small range of permanent dishes, including miso soup and a veggie burger and cakes, and is accompanied by daily changing offers. There is a special lunch offer and prices are moderate. This is the more remarkable, as there is a strong focus on ecologic and regional products and fair trade aspects. Even though the Lesecafe is located in a somewhat run down environment in the surroundings of a city center supermarket and in its look and feel still reminds of the salesroom which it was before, it is a most welcome enrichment of the Erlangen gastronomy, where no other vegan location exists at all. We will certainly make the Lesecafe our favourite eating out place.

Pros: good value, friendly staff, only vegan place in town
