“The warmth of the team and the relaxed athmosphere is enjoyable. He, who beliefs here is simply a vegan & vegetarian restaurant and café, is wrong. There is much more behind. … Not only, that the dishes are really generous, they taste very well in addition. Absolutely recommendable! The coffee convinces us as well and we mean it. We are really discerning concerning that :-)”
