Great food and ambiance.

Had an amazing vegan plate for just 11 euro. Day after went back for another salad (pad Thai) which was literally the best salad I've had in my like.
This place only had four stars probably because it used to serve meat (in which case Happy Cow didn't allow a five star rating) but it deserves a five star average!

Cozy place, good vegan options

Nice, central vegeterian café with several vegan options (both warm dishes, sallads and sandwiches).
A good option in no longer so vegan-friendly Umeå...

Great place

Seems to be a quite popular spot for lunch, which makes sense since the food was really good.

Nice place

Arrived in the evening and about 45 minutes before closing (closing hours were not accurate on the app). The staff was quite annoyed when I tried to explain this, but said I could still order. I had a vegan croque monsieur and it was quite good, no complains about that. But the staff ignored me when she served and seemed in a quite bad mood, which unfortunately made the whole experience uncomfortable.

Pros: Cozy atmosphere , Simple and good food

Cons: Staff was quite unpolite

Found this place by mistake and was so happy. During lunch it was packed and I had to do takeaway. Everything on the (lunch)menu seemed to be vegan and gluten-free possible. Other reviews say about meat and cheese but I didn’t see any. Heaven.

Pros: Clear menus, Lots of glutenfree, Good coffee

Cons: Too popular no seats

A bistro that does right by vegan foodies

On a trip to Umeå, we were on the hunt for vegan-friendly places to eat. It was down to Rost and another place. As luck would have it, Rost was right around the corner from our hotel. My partner had the Fresh Cheese Plate, which the restaurant made vegan by giving him extra hummus, It was served with bulgar, chile beans, quinoa, and curry beans. He also raved about the lovely dark pumpernickel bread that came with his meal. I had the soup of the day (which is always vegan btw!). It was tomato and sweet pea with herb toast and a lovely fresh summer salad. Both meals were fantastic. If I had anything to say, it would only be that I was missing a little savory to break up the sweet on my plate, but that it just me splitting hairs. On our way out the door, we made it as far as the dessert display before turning around to head back in for a slice of carrot cake (non-vegan) and a chocolate ball (vegan). Both desserts were yummy. The atmosphere is modern, trendy and great for a 2014 bistro.

Pros: creative menu with modern flavors, atmosphere, location
