Test Review

Free Lancer Clara Guell“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 :-)”

This is a café with chi. Where the breakfast is like meditation. – The small café is much more than a vegetarian-vegan meeting place: it is small oasis of peace. The furnishings are bright, create good mood and slow down. Starting with soups, quiche and curry right up to cakes, all dishes are served with organic ingredients from the region.
