Le seul lieu pour manger vegan, bio et sans gluten à Fribourg ! - Edit

Happy Books est un havre de paix et de découvertes culinaires. Les entrées, plats, desserts, tapas et boissons 100% végétaliennes sont tous savoureux, originaux, équilibrés et nourrissants, sains pour le corps et l'esprit !
Ouvert du jeudi au samedi de 9h à 19h, on peut y déguster des petits déjeuners, pâtisseries ou menus du jour à base de produits frais, bio et locaux absolument délicieux !
Les plats sont crus les jeudis : succulents et idéal pour faire le plein d'énergie ! La cuisine est cuite les vendredis et samedis, et c'est toujours un voyage à travers des saveurs, textures et couleurs sans cesse renouvelées !
De plus, de nombreux livres de recettes, mais aussi dédiés aux droits des animaux, à l'éthique animale ou la santé sont à acheter ou emprunter.

Food for thought & for your body - Edit

Three days a week this library/bookstore turns into a cute mini-café offering two freshly cooked main courses, salad or soup, tapas and desserts. The food is organic.
I had rice with a generous serving of tofu in gravy with steamed vegetables. The dessert was delicious.
Good food at a moderate price, friendly staff, calm vibe. Excellent location near the train station and lots of great books.

Pros: Calm ambiance, Free pitcher of water, Organic food

Good vibes, good books, good cause - Edit

The LSCV Happy Books Cafe is three things in one: a cafe, a library, and a bookstore specializing in books on vegan themes. Guests are welcome to read any of the books in the cafe (even the ones that are meant for sale). They serve food at lunch and drinks all the time.

Great - Edit

I was already a lot there. You can always choose between 2 starters (salad or soup), 2 main dishes and 2 or sometimes even more desserts (one of them is always fruit salad). The menu changes every week. The staff is friendly and attentive. You can even have a second serving if you haven't had enough. The food is really delicious and creative. Some of it is even organic. The price is up to you to decide, since it's "prix libre".
Also check out their Facebook page, sometimes they post their menus there.

Adorable little place! - Edit

If you ever end up in Fribourg, you have to visit this little cafe! It's a very small library and center for animal rights (LSCV is an organization against vivisection). They have all kinds of vegan pamphlets and cookbooks in French and German.
Every Thursday to Saturday from 12-3PM they offer cooked meals (a choice between two entrees, two main courses and two desserts). And it's reeeaaally good food. Simple, nothing super fancy, but always good. Very friendly and helpful staff and it's all on a free price basis too (wich means you can decide how much you want to pay).
An amazing place in a town, that usually isn't that easy for vegans.

Great Café - Edit

I found this Cafe via HappyCow while travelling through Fribourg. It's only been open a few weeks. The staff are lovely and the place is filled with books, mostly in Veganism. You can take them home for 30 days or you can buy books they have for sale there too. I was with friends who ordered coffee and I got a heated mug of Soya chocolate (they offered that as I asked for hot chocolate) which was delish! and we got a complimentary fruit salad each. will definitely be back if I'm in Fribourg again!

Pros: A 'free' cafe, you pay what you like for w, You're surrounded by books you can take home!
