Wirklich gut - Edit

Ein gemütliches Refugium für Vegetarier mitten in Frankfurt mit sehr leckeren, gesunden Gerichten, tollen Smoothies, Bowls und Tees. Klasse auch die grosse Auswahl an veganen Torten. Nette Bedienung. Sehr zu empfehlen!

Mala atención y platos insulsos - Edit

Hicimos una reserva y no nos contestaron, aun así hemos ido y a regañadientes nos han atendido, con malas caras en especial el camarero de barra que es un antipático. Los platos son demasiado grandes e insulsos. No lo recomiendo

Pros: Nada, salimos descontentos

Cons: Sobre todo la mala atención recibida

schönes Ambiente durchschnittliches Essen - Edit

Das Restaurant ist sehr schön. Der Service freundlich, aber leicht überfordert. Das Essen war lecker, aber nichts super Besonderes. Unsere Portionen waren sehr groß. Getränkepreise hoch (7€ für ein Glas Wein). Würde wieder hingehen.

Pros: viele vegane Optionen , schön eingerichtet

Good but a bit pricey - Edit

We had an energy bowl with lots of veggies, avocado, and lentils, and a burger. Both tasted really good! The staff was friendly and the space is well decorated. I would say it's a bit pricey, but I guess that's what you get pretty much everywhere in Germany.

Pros: Taste, Freshness

Cons: Price

best cake in Town - Edit

Try the cheese cake and 'zupfkuchen' they are delicious and all vegan. The hot dishes are also very tasteful, and they serve 'premium cola' and lemonaid. Location is cozy and the place has many fans.

Pros: apparently all vegan

Tasty food! - Edit

We had Vevay plate, rice noodle with peanut sauce (forgot the name of the menu) and tofu scramble. Rice noodle with peanut sauce was the best! We especially liked it being warm instead of being cold. Vevay plate was also good (falafel, couscous, hummus, grilled veggies..) and tofu scramble was ok. The bread that came out was also tasty! Cakes were also good (we had a crumble and cheesecake)!

Pros: Tasty, Close to city center, Friendly staff

Cons: a bit pricy but reasonable I guess

Delicious dishes, smoothies and great deserts - Edit

Located next to the financial center, this is a good place to have breakfast, lunch, dinner or just to grab sth in between. Every time I come to Frankfurt, I try to grab some food in this place. My favorite place in Frankfurt so far.

Yummy! - Edit

Funny how Germany changed its image in a few short years. Germany used to be the country of bratwurst, weisswurst and beer. Now, being a vegan is the cool thing to do in Germany and vegan restaurants take over. So it wasn't hard to find a vegetarian restaurant in Frankfurt. Yet, I went for the one that has the best reviews on Happy Cow. The name of the restaurant, "Vevay", is short for "Vegetarian Vegan Yummy". After visiting I can tell you: yes, it is indeed yummy, vegan and vegetarian.

It's easy to find, the staff speaks English (German menu on the table, English menu available on request) and the atmosphere is cool. It just feels like the place to be; exactly like hip, young vegans in Germany want to be perceived.

Based on the many reviews on Happy Cow I opted for the lukewarm rice noodle salad. Indeed, it is amazing. Some vegetarian chefs try to mimic a meat based menu. Other chefs try to emphasise the pure taste of the ingredients. At Vevay European style cooking (which means sauces and spices determine the taste) is combined with the vegan lifestyle. The result is sublime. To start with: the food looks good and smells great. Fresh ingredients and well balanced palette of tastes create a fantastic taste.

Because of the fantastic first experience, I went back the very next day. Feeling very hungry and being in need of energy, I ordered the udon noodles. This time the meal was good, but not special.

The size of the portions was enough to fill the stomach, but not so much one feels stuffed. Considering the quality of the food, prices are fair. If I'm ever in the neighbourhood again, I will surely visit Vevay again. Actually, I'd even make a d-tour to go here again.

Pros: great food, cool atmosphere, good portions, fair prices

Cons: cash only, close to a very bad neigbourhood, can be very busy (make reservations!)

Muito bom! - Edit

Tudo vegan! Lugar muito legal, pessoas simpáticas e atenciosas! Bem cheio para um dia de semana qualquer a noite. Comida deliciosa, cerveja boa. Única coisa que poderia ser melhor é o atendimento, o que infeliz ou felizmente pela simpatia local não pesa na ótima experiência que tivemos lá!

Pros: Cardápio Excelente, Muito saboro, Simpatia e atenção

Cons: Atendimento

Essen ok, Service einfach schlecht - Edit

Es war halb leer, trotzdem haben wir ewig gewartet bis wir bestellen konnten. Unser Essen wurde dann vergessen bzw. jemand anderem gegebene, dann hat es wieder gedauert. Auch wenn man ne halbe Stunde vor seinem leeren Glas sitzt, wird nicht nachgefragt. Wir hatten den Falaffelburger, bei dem das Brötchen sehr hart und zu süß war. Protein Bowl war ok, jedoch recht wenig für den Preis. Insgesamt keine Empfehlung.

Pros: zentral in der Innenstadt, Frühstück, Guter Kuchen

Cons: Service unaufmerksam und langsam, Bestellungen werden öfter Mal vergessen, Unappetitliche Toilette (Damen)

Food is good, everything else sucks - Edit

Came here on a rainy Saturday morning to grab some vegan breakfast. We ordered an acai bowl and tofu scramble, plus an oat-cappuccino and a coffee. It took a long time before we could order and the waitress had a cold demeanor and not the best attitude, it seemed.

The food we received was very good, the tofu scramble tasted almost too much like eggs - my boyfriend had to taste twice before he was convinced it was actually tofu. The acai bowl was nice and nutritious.

The coffees however were a disaster. The oat-cappuccino was basically espresso with hot milk, there wasn't any milk froth whatsoever. The black coffee was - according to my boyfriend- "the worst coffee he's ever tasted", to the point where it was impossible to drink. Even the machine coffee from our office building tastes better than whatever was served there.

On top of that, prices were very expensive and the entire place just seemed a bit chaotic. Maybe the waitress was new and didn't know what to do, something we could easily overlook, but her lack of caring and friendliness made it hard for us to be empathetic.

In short, good food, but terrible coffee and service and overall too expensive for what you get.

Pros: tofu scramble on point , nice selection

Cons: expensive , the worst coffee ever made on earth, bad service

Good Food for sure - Edit

Not mind blowing but was definitely worth the visit. We had Coconut pancakes and tofu egg dish. Egg dish could use more flavor but pancakes were great.

Pros: good choices , atmosphere

Cons: bland tofu eggs

used to be good - Edit

Maybe it's just my impression, but unfortunately VEVAY got continuously worse during the past 1.5-2 years. The last time I ate there (in July 2017) I was highly disappointed. Both the "power salad" and the other dish (I forgot which) were just lame, none of the veggies tasted good, and even the lentils were kind of tasteless. For 13-14 Euro per dish you can do better, for sure. I think I'm not going to eat there a main dish again.
The vegan "cheese"-cake is still the best though...

Pros: location, vegan "cheese" cake

Cons: mains tasteless, pricy

More trendy than tasty - Edit

This place is big in to superfoods and you see it in the prices. I got scrambled tofu and it was okay, but not great. Cake was also okay. It seems like one of those places where things taste vegan and healthy rather than tasting good and being vegan and healthy.

Cons: Expensive, Slow, Food sounds tastier on the menu than it actually i

Excellently flavored food - Edit

Food is very fresh and meant to be light and healthy. Vegan options are clearly labeled. Portion size is big enough. We tried the Vevay plate, quinoa noodles, low carb burger and another noodle dish. Everything was super tasty. The components of the Vevay plate are well-known from other restaurants (humus, avocado cream, salsa, couscous...), but so well flavored that they turn to a highlight. They offer high-priced, but good wine.

Pros: Many vegan options healthy food good flavor

Healthy dishes, but not creative - Edit

They offer decent, healthy vegan food, but it is not very creative or surprising.
It does the job but it's not mind blowing... Just what you would expect from a healthy vegan joint

Very Good Indeed! - Edit

I had a late lunch at Vevay.
Although I arrived after 14.00, there was still plenty of people, so I guess it's quite popular.

The menu has a god variety of plates and flavours.
All but 2 plates (not one like the description says) are vegan. All desserts seem to be vegan too.
During breakfast most of the offer is vegan; however they use eggs for a couple of dishes.

I had the goji & cashew rice with teriyaki tofu. It was fantastic. I really liked it.
As a dessert I had a cheesecake, which was also rather good, not so sweet.

Staff was friendly, and atmosphere was also enjoyable.
For travelers: wifi is available but you need to ask the pwd to the staff.

If only they would ditch their tiny tiny offer of vegetarian plates (as if Falafel couldn't be made vegan)!

Pros: plenty of vegan options, good value, nice atmosphere

Cons: not all vegan

Great food with attention to detail, very impressed! - Edit

I was very impressed with this restaurant. The servers are friendly, attentive, fast and knowledgeable; and the food is amazing. I had a wild rice/quinoa dish with roasted vegetables, braised tofu and a wild herb salad. I could taste that the food was fresh and prepared with love and attention to detail. Every bite was a delight.

I don't give out such praise lightly - often I leave restaurants with a feeling of 'it was alright; I could have done this better myself'. But Vevay was truly exceptional. No complaints at all - only praise. Well done, keep up the good work!

Pros: Friendly, fast service., Excellent food., Good value.

Cons: Too far away from where I live :)

Rising star - must try! - Edit

Market entry was astouningly quiet and this place is not very crowded - yet.
The quality of the offered food is very good - many organic and fresh ingredients, superbly prepared.

The tofu-quinoa salad with warm sprouts was simply great in taste and looks-see picture.

I also tried a raw cake and a baked one, both also great.

This place has a modern and cozy interior, creating a welcoming atmosphere on two floors.

EDIT:
I am a sporadic customer, drop by every 2 months... Today I was totally shocked to see half of the guests wearing fur.
And guess what? The owner and the service staff do not intervene, they even do not talk to their fur wearing guests. This is really annoying and in my opinion a no go for a vegetarian venue.
The waitress seemed to be relieved when I asked her about that and said she will talk to the owner. I proposed to at least hand out a flyer to every fur-wearer...
As HappyCow Ambassador I will have a talk with him as well.
Until this problem is solved, I can not rate higher than 3 stars.

Updated from previous review on 2015-05-21

Pros: welcoming atmosphere, nice staff, 95% vegan

Cons: a bit pricey, no outside seating, Fur accepted
