Jomalungma is a vege long-timer of the city. It’s also fulfilled with Indian spirit right up to the meditative music. But the coolest thing is its open hours suitable for late-eaters. The cafe is located in an industrial setting a bit outside of the city centre (but still the metro station is nearby). There’s a great choice of dishes, because the menu is divided into several sections according to different Asian regions. The food is freshly made and tasty: here you can order naan, noodles or rice with veg, Indian curry, mixed vegetables and dumplings. The only thing, it's not as cheap as other restaurants (about € 10 per person).

This art-cafe is inspired by the rock-and-roll era’s aesthetics, even indie or psychedelic rock playing from the real jukebox. The cafe serves meat, but nearly a half of the menu is vegan (vega dishes are marked on the menu) and the range is wide. You can order anything from snacks (sandwiches and burgers with chips) to hot plates and desserts. Come along for the unique vibe.

Although they don’t abandon meat and animal products totally, these fast-healthy salad bars offer a separate vegetarian menu with pasta. A standard menu usually includes at least one vegetarian course in each section: it can rather be a cream soup, salad, pasta, sandwich, ravioli, dessert or drinks. Many of Salateira’s dishes are also vegan. Anyway Salateira deserves a praise for big portions at a decent price.

A take-out only place with soups only. In Soup Culture order vegetarian and vegan cream soup in edible bread cone-looking cup: you can eat it after you’re done with what’s inside. This eating-spot is laid back and friendly. Don’t forget to pop in there to warm up.
