Super nice food

Went there multiple times last year and always had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and the buffet was great.
We also bought food to go a lot (Schokogipferl (chocolate croissant) and kebab sandwich) which was also delicious.
Will definitely come back when I am in Luzern again

Buffet with wonderful variety

Everything is clearly labeled as vegan or vegetarian, and it is less pricey than some of the other pay-by-weight buffets. I had a chai mousse for dessert that was so good

Buffet restaurant, really cheap

Buffet restaurant that offers about 40 vegan dishes! You pay by weight. Laid back and easy going atmosphere, situated at the first floor of Luzern station.

Surprisingly good for what is essentially a vegan self-serve buffet

A large variety of hot and cold dishes presented. We chose mostly hot items. Located in the upper level of the Bahnhof, one would think of this as vegan fast food. It is fast, as you load up your plate, have it weighed, and pay per the weight of the food you chose. But the quality is really a super upgrade above what one would think fast food would be. And the price is very reasonable, considering the convenience and speed at which one can get a good variety of vegan main dishes, sides, breads, and desserts. When you need to eat good food quickly, ignoring the atmosphere, Tibits would be very difficult to beat.

Pros: Large variety of dishes, Hot and cold dishes, breads, and desserts, Very fast and delicious vegan options

Cons: Buffet setting = acceptable a lack of atmosphere

**it is on the top floor of the station** hard to find, asked around but holy guacamole was it AMAZING. Huge selection, desserts, salads, hot foods, comfort foods everything. It is wildly expensive, I’m talking 40-50 francs a person if you eat like I do which is when hungry hungry. Took my dad who’s not even vegetarian and he was in love.

Pros: Selection, DESSERTS, Tasty

Cons: Expensive as heck, Hard to find

Veg food above the rails

The famous create your own plate - pay by weight with an increasing share of vegan options. By now like 90 to 95% seem to be vegan, some few egg or dairy cheese left on the menu. Right place to go all day. This location is indoor only.

Pros: Fresh, 100% tasty, Superfast from arrival to eating a warm dish

Great spot!

In the train station, so a little hard to find from outside, but worth the hunt. Buffet/salad bar style. Vegan options clearly marked. The food was fresh and tasty. A little pricey, but so far that seems to be Lucerne in general. We would definitely recommend!

Pros: Great food, Lots of vegan options

Cons: A bit expensive

Wish I discovered them sooner

Went here to have a quick look before we caught our departing train. Was blown away by the variety that was vegan. Got two croissants for the train ride and they were both delicious.

Pros: Great variety , Fast service , Very reasonably priced

Big range of food

I went here twice for dinner in 2 days and there were slight changes in food, which was nice to try new things. There was alot of vegan options (staff member said about 80%) and everything was clearly labelled.
My absolute favourite was the egg salad. Also really liked the chilli non carne, and potato salad. The edamame dip was refreshing, and loved the range of dips - especially the house, tzitziki, and lentil pate.
You get a free bread roll with your meal, but they're not the soft fluffy bread.
The restaurant is spacious with welcoming decor, and conveniently in the train station.

Pros: Egg salad

What a place!

Sooo, you are hungry and waiting for a train? If that's the case this place is a must! Open buffet with many variaties of vegan and vegetarian food. Everything is labelled very well and the quality is also good. Great place for the curious foodies who like to try out many different things at once.

Big fan of Tibits

I love Tibits! Lucerne is the fourth one I’ve been to and it’s just as good as the other branches. Great selection of dishes, cakes and drinks. The restaurant itself is in the main train station but doesn’t feel like it, has a lovely calm feel. The staff are exceptional, very friendly and enthusiastic.

Pros: Loads of vegan food, Staff are amazing , Does takeaways

Excellent Buffet

Multiple choices, mostly vegan in a buffet style. Protein options are limited. Delicious food. Even my meat-eating partner praised the food multiple times. That was a surprise. Even most of the desserts are vegan and tasted exceptional. The peanut butter brownie and passion fruit cheesecake was a balance of crunchy and sweet but not too sweet. The greatness comes with an expense- a medium plate of food is $20-30/CHF.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Delicious food

Cons: Expensive

Vegetarian in Train station

Very nice to find this restaurant inside Lucerne train station. They clearly mark if you cannot tolerate some ingredients ( onion, garlic, gluten, etc ).
Taste of food and dessert awsome.

Pros: Choices with ingredients clearly mark, Dessert awsome, Location

Best Taste & Value

Tidbits is of spectacular value for those eating out in Switzerland when you bring your own container for to-go. Costs only €3/100g. Not cheap but it’s over 50% less than Hitl.

There is a large variety spanning European, Middle Eastern, and south Asian. Nearly all the options are vegan. The spring rolls, falafel, and cheesecake were the most tasty and memorable. The setting is beautiful, location convenient, and the staff friendly.

(I’ve omitted a photo because I couldn’t take an attractive photo of the food in my reusable container)

Das erste Mal (pflanzlich) auswärts essen

Eigentlich gibt es an der Lage (oberhalb der Gleise im Hauptbahnhof Luzern), der Einrichtung / Ambiance und dem Service nichts zu meckern. Wir sind neu in dem Ganzen (pflanzlich essen) und haben eher immer zu Hause alles selbst gekocht und vorbereitet und vielleicht deshalb sind wir etwas verwöhnt mit der Qualität und Geschmack vom Essen selbst. Sachen, die Menschen eher vielleicht davon abhalten "vegan" zu essen.

Vielleicht ist es auch nur Geschmackssache. Vielleicht ist es auch nur die etwas magere Auswahl fürs Frühstück. Wir kommen vielleicht wieder, aber probieren etwas für die etwas späteren Mahlzeiten, wie die Mittags- und Abendessen-Speisen.

PS: Es ist extrem schwer in der Zentralschweiz Restaurants zu finden, welche eine breite Auswahl an pflanzliche Frühstücksgerichte offerieren.


Actually, there is nothing to complain about the location (above the tracks in the Lucerne main station), the facility / ambiance and the service. We are new to this whole thing (plant-based eating) and have rather always cooked and prepared everything ourselves at home and perhaps therefore we are somewhat spoiled with the quality and taste of the food itself. Things that tend to maybe keep people from eating "vegan", that is.

Maybe it's just a matter of taste. Maybe it's just the somewhat meager selection for breakfast items. We may come back, but try something for the slightly later meals, like the lunch and dinner dishes.

PS: It is extremely difficult to find restaurants in central Switzerland that offer a wide selection of plant-based breakfast dishes.

Pros: Location, Cleanliness / mood, Service

Cons: Price (normal in Switzerland), Taste of food (breakfast only)

Für alle was dabei!

Ich war nun schon sehr häufig im Tibits und wurde bislang auch noch nie enttäuscht. Das Buffet hat meistens sehr viele vegane Speisen im Angebot. Ein weiterer Vorteil ist, dass man dank der Selbstbedienung je nach Hunger mehr oder weniger nehmen kann. Die hausgemachten Getränke sind ebenfalls sehr lecker. Es gibt jedoch auch noch 1-2 kleine Kritikpunkte. Zum einen wird es schnell ziemlich teuer, was meinen Erfahrungen nach vor allem omnivore Besucher etwas abschreckt. Das ist meines Erachtens etwas schade, da das Tibits für jeden und jede etwas zu bieten hat! Zudem ist das lokal häufig ziemlich voll, was die Atmosphäre leider etwas stört. Alles in allem trotzdem ein sehr empfehlenswertes Reataurant, das ich auf jeden Fall auch in Zukunft noch oft besuchen werde.
