First Review by Nicolas

War fein ... - Edit

...geht aber noch besser - guter Tipp für einen schnellen Abstecher. Toll ist, dass es bio-vegan ist!

more than ice cream - Edit

eigentlich sind das zwei rezensionen:
zum einen für die glacéabteilung (daher der name vegelateria),
zum andern für das restaurant, dass eigentlich unter dem namen "sacred" läuft.

die vegelateria ist wohl die einzige einrichtung dieser stadt, die veganes (und nur solches) speiseeis im offenverkauf hat. und zwar das ganze jahr durch! meistens etwa 25 sorten, häufig wechselnd. immer mit ein paar ausgefallenen kombinationen, die es garantiert nicht an jeder ecke gibt: zum beispiel mit spirulina.

die preise bewegen sich im normalen rahmen für selbstgemachtes glacé on the go. wenn man bedenkt, dass alles noch bio ist, gibt es echt nichts zu mosern. und was ich auch schätze: man darf gerne vorkosten, bevor man eine (oder eben keine) kugel davon bestellt. bei mir sind es meistens mindestens zwei ...

"sacred" heißt das restaurant eigentlich, so sagt aber fast niemand. auf ihre flagge haben die inhaber nicht nur vegan, sondern auch bio geschrieben. take-away und eat-it sind gleich teuer: chf 39.00/kg (stand september 2016).

bezahlt wir das wirkliche sehr leckere essen, indem der "beladene" teller gewogen wird. die auswahl ist nicht so umfangreich wie bei der konkurrenz, aber hier setzt man den fokus eindeutig auf qualität, nicht auf quantität.

insidertipp: am samstag abend finden sich häufig meherere rohkostmenüs auf dem buffet.

das personal ist übrigens immer sehr hilfsbereit und flexibel und durchaus offen für sonderwünsche, sofern sich diese erfüllen lassen.

Pros: best vegan ice in town, everything is organic, nice staff

Cons: rather high-priced

Very warm and cosy place - Edit

I enjoyed visiting Vegelateria, the staff and the owner were very warm and friendly. I didn't fully enjoyed the food from buffet, I took a little of everything and some of the food was very tasty but most had an acquired taste.

Pros: Super friendly staff and environment , Food was inexpensive

Cons: Limited choice - Food, Questionable tastes of some foods

European buffet, nice ice cream, large space - Edit

Mostly young, urban locals cater the restaurant / ice cream parlor. Quality of and choice of food buffet is excellent (I would call it European food & salad buffet). No 'garlic everywhere' overload like often in vegan cuisine.

Owners are big fans of Sri Chinmoy (the guru) and of esoteric, peaceful, 'smiling' spitituality. Hence, all goes in a very slow and peaceful pace.

Excellent ginger tea w/ lemon, chai latte tea (soy milk of course), etc..

Ice cream is very soft and comes in lotsa flavors incl. different berries, chocolate & orange, spirulina (algae), apple, etc., all biologically grown.

Pretty large indoor seating area -- and some chairs outside, too.

Prices are very high compared to the rest of Europe but completely normal for the city of Zurich: large plate of food'n'salad from buffet costs 22 USD, three scoops of ice cream 11 USD.

15 mins walk from central train station.

Pros: friendly, peaceful space, fresh, european food, ice cream! ;)

renovation - Edit

In August 2015 Vegelateria has made a renovation. Since then the name had changed to: Vegelateria & Amazing Strength Restaurant
The have now a new bathroom for ladies which is suitable for the disabled. In addition they installed a ventilation system.
Apart from the fact that the food is very tasty it is now a quite modern location.
A drop of bitterness remains since you can still not pay with Maestro or Credit Cards.

One of the best restaurants I know - Edit

This restaurant offers something you hardly find together: vegan AND organic! You can choose from a wide range of cold and warm dishes in buffet style. The food is excellent, the stuff is very friendly and prices are moderate for the Swiss. Ten cows!

Pros: Vegan AND organic food, Very tasty and delicious, Very friendly stuff, moderate prices

Fabulous! - Edit

We are over in Zurich for a few days from the UK with a friend who works here.
She said we really should have lunch here and we were not disappointed.

The staff are all friendly and held and greeted us like we ate there everyday.
A buffet style system is in place for the food and your plate is weighed so you only pay for what you have.

Trying not to put too much on your plate as a first visitor is the biggest problem when going to an all vegan restaurant, and the food was just excellent.

I recommend this restaurant and think you should visit it if you are in Zurich

Pros: good food, lots to choose from, friendly staff

Good ice cream and coffee - Edit

Exhausted after a 20 km run, we were looking for ice cream near HB. HappyCow showed us to this place and we were not disappointed. (Although "near HB" might be an overstatement, it is definitely within walking distance.) The ice cream comes in about 15 flavours and you can taste them to help make up your mind.

During our visit, most tables were occupied by other visitors, most of whom were attending the vegan buffet. It looked good but we didn't try it.

Pros: Decent selection of ice cream flavours, Owner happy to tell you about the foods

Good buffet - Edit

I was there in the evening for the vegan buffet. Lots of choice from salad via hummus over curry to Zuricher Geschnetzeltes. I had to try everything and liked it all :-) You pay per weight, but it is really quite inexpensive for Swiss standards. Staff was friendly, too, and the place is quite cosy.

relaxing and delicious - Edit

A buffet where you can eat everything is a wondrous thing. As a family of four vegans that's what we got here. We are great fans of the pay by weight system here and elsewhere, ideal for a variety of appetites, and you can tell who's saving themselves for ice cream.
The owner and staff are very friendly. The music is a little soporific, though they didn't seem to mind me snoozing at the table while the rest of the family indulged in exciting flavours of home made vegan ice cream we've never found anywhere else.
There's a small range of vegan dairy products available to buy to take home, including a really delicious and creamy yoghurt.
Wouldn't it be nice to live down the road from this place! Well worth a visit if you are in Zurich for a day or two, as we were.

Not Bad. - Edit

There was a good choice of dishes at the buffet. None of it was that amazing, but as a slightly less expensive sit-down vegan place in Zürich, it was worth a visit.

I wanted to try the ice cream after reading other reviews. It was okay, but just like any other ice cream, beware of the sugar rush!

The interior is a bit heavy on the spiritual side and the lighting was too bright. It all felt very new too, but i'm sure it'll develop some atmosphere as time goes on.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Too bright

good ice cream, but EXPENSIVE - Edit

I do not know how this place is rated as "inexpensive," as one tablespoon-sized scoop of ice cream costs several Euro, so if you get 3 tiny scoops you are already pushing 6 or 7 Euro (that's close to 10 dollars for a tiny dessert!).

With that out of the way, the selection of ice creams was excellent: coffee flavors, fruity flavors, chocolate flavors, and nut flavors. Delicious!!!

There was a strange vibe to the place, but the gelato was worth trying. We would prefer the desserts at Tibits though.

Pros: huge variety, high quality vegan gelato, interesting and delicious flavors

Cons: very EXPENSIVE, tiny portions, strange vibe

Great vegan ice cream in Zurich - Edit

We fell in love with this place. Service was friendly (and the staff spoke several languages). We sat outside enjoying the sun an our stunning ice creams (the coffee on is so good!). For lunch it seems like a buffet style with take out options and it seemed healthy. There is a place for children to play too.
Ice cream lovers, this is a place for you!

Pros: Ice cream, Outdoor seating, Kid friendly
