This self service is located in the Groene Passage. You can walk there easily form the Central train station. You will find all kinds of shops, including Gimsel, an organic supermarket providing excellent quality quality for good prices; the Labyrynth on the first floor is a small spiritual shop (mainly books in Dutch) having nice postcards; and a wereldwinkel =...

You can wake me up in the middle of the night to go and eat at this place. I have been there many times and it never gets old. People who complain "there is no meat" are in for a treat! Because with so many different dishes you won't even miss it! I promise. Go there and be amazed!! Enjoy

Spirit is THE place to go if you want vegetarian food, fresh, tasty and at a very good price. Soups, warm food, cold food, cakes, sweets, fruit, vegetables, breads, herb tea... you name it. The place is just a block away from the Blaak Market Hall attraction. It is a self-service restaurant. You can chose what you want and pay... More

Great vegetarian meal! We've eaten in a similar restaurant in Zurich - take a plate and choose whatever you like from a great range of vegetarian dishes and pay per weight of food. Love the concept - keeps everyone happy as you only choose what you want to eat and how much you want to eat, and everyone's a happy... More

I had a marvellous dinner here with friends and took from the buffet the most difficult things for me to make at home. The marinated salads were the highlight. I would be chopping for hours to be able to have this fabulous salads at home. The chick pea with garlic and parsley was a highlight.

A great restaurant in Rotterdam - we visit often! It is informal, relaxed, almost a café, but fabulous food where you select from a buffet and pay by weight. There is so much choice of tasty looking things you will end up with a full plate! My advice is try to leave room for the home made deserts...
