Unfriendly Service and Ordinary Food - Edit

Because of some special wishes, which were already mentioned on our reservation details, the waitress threaded us not very friendly.

Our first sight : Customers are not welcomed here. Are we in a traditional german "Brauhaus", where offers bad and unfriendly service in the name of tradition?

Then, we had to wait 30 Min. for our first round of Semi-warm beers. And it took fast a hour to get our dishes at noon on very calm saturday in Prütt. If the cafe is not packed, while waitreses are hanging just around, isn`t it normal to expect a fast service?

The food was edible, too fatty and not tasty! Almost 10 Euro for ordinary Pasta with some veggies.

They do offer a local beer brand. Wish they could also offer it cold and fresh.

I would not recommend this cafe. Service needs a hardcore Improvement.

Pros: In the Center, Petfriendly, Local Beer

Cons: Unfriendly Service, Extremly Slow, Pricey

Authentic and Pleasant Environment - Edit

Just a quick review:
-really good vegetarian options
-vegan rather rare but adjustable menu
-atmosphere rather traditional than "hip"
-nice place to go for a rainy sunday afternoon, but not for excessive vegan dining :)

Very good (whole)food for a good value of money - Edit

Location

Prutt is located centrally nearby the main train station of Muenster. It is a more or less small cafe/restaurant with a nice interior in a reduced and functional design.
Due to limited capacities of seating it is recommended to make a reservation, especially for dinner.

Food and drinks

The menu offers different appetizers, soups, dishes, pizzas and deserts. There is also a daily changing lunch special available for a very fair pricing.
For vegans the situation is quite confusing: the menu states that vegan meals are marked as those. But a deeper look into the menu reveals that none of the meals is marked. Moreover the detailed description explains that only on request meals are available as a vegan option.
What Prutt makes special is the usage of fresh goods from suppliers with local production and that the meals are preferably offered as a wholefood variant. Moreover the menu contains a detailed descriptions section that explains the restaurant's philosophy and production methods and that lists the restaurant's suppliers.

During my few stays at the restaurant for dinner as well as for lunch the quality and the taste of the meals was always excellent.

Service

In general the service staff was friendly and helpful, but some members could be a little bit more attentive.

Price

The prices at Prutt are ok and compared to none-vegetarian restaurants in Muenster absolutely competitive - in total a good value for money.

Summary

I definitely recommend to go to Prutt to have lunch or dinner. I am already looking forward for my next visit to Muenster area.

Pros: excellent food, wholefood, good value

Not for Vegans.... - Edit

Visited this place on a recent visit to Muenster. Very pleasant cafe, with nice atmosphere. Well designed. Only problem was the food! Actually, the food was tasty enough, though nothing great, but there was very little for vegans. This is the kind of place you often find in Europe that is vegetarian, which means that every dish is loaded with cheese and dairy. Their menu actually indicates with a V which dishes are vegan. There were two on the entire menu, one salad and one main. We ordered a calzone without the feta cheese, and it came instead covered in mozzarella. Had a salad as well. OK, but nothing to get excited about. Not in any rush to go back. AGain, if you are in Muenster, it's serves the purpose, but hardly worth going out of the way for.

Pros: REally cozy cafe

Cons: Unfriendly staff, little for vegans, watch out for the cheese!

Oliver Hi Pete,

I totally agree with everything you have written about this Café. I live in Muenster and checked it several times during the years. First thing, the menu doesn't offer a big variety, it's more on snacks and pizzas (wholemeal only!). But they should be ashamed about what they offer for vegans. On their website ( http://www.pruett-cafe.de/ ), they write that the choices for vegans are "nicht so groß" (not so big), but in fact, there is not 1 single dish marked as vegan, although they have have this sign (v!) in the menu. They write that they could alter some dishes (e.g. omit the cream on the tomato soup; the feta cheese in the greek salad; the cheese on the pizza), but that's the point, you will always have to ask if the cook can do it and, from my experience, they are not really keen on that.

It's really a shame, the only vegetarian restaurant in Muenster, but, to be honest, not worth a visit, at least not for vegans. Veggies can try their luck, it's on the street right behind the railway station.

One of the great things of Muenster - Edit

Our visits to Muenster are not complete without eating here. We travel by train and it is very close to the central station a short walk from the city center. Prütt regularly has new items on the menu, always healthy and usually very tasty. All dishes are organic, some are vegan. It started in the 1980's as a meeting place for people with alternative lyfestyles, but it has developed into a great restaurant. They have take-out too.

Pros: great food
