My girlfriend and I scoured Nuremberg for vegan restaurants. I am not vegan myself but on this trip I was slowly developing a heavy taste (and desire) for vegan food. This was one of the places we went to. It was closed when we first got there. We kind of walked in and nobody was inside the restaurant (Dec. 23... More

Lover of Vegetarian and Vegan food? This is the place to go. Lovely staff is serving lovely food - nice rustically interior but warm feeling and the dishes are great. During the summer a terrace is available as well.

The outside space is a really nice street facing garden setting with lavender and other plants. The menu was all in English but the owner spent time reading through and explaining the options which was much appreciated. Unfortunately cannot remember the name of the dish but it was one of the most delicious vegetarian meals I've had in a while.... More

I ate their prepared menu yesterday and it amazed me. I have eaten at many luxurious restaurants in Sweden since I love to eat out but the fact is that this restaurant tucked away outside of the Altstadt served me the best meals I've ever had. It was creative, well prepared and extremely tasteful. The best part, it is vegetarian/vegan!... More

The wife and I went here during our stay in Nuremberg. While in Europe, we went to about 4 vegetarian/vegan restaurants and this was by far our favorite. The menu had a good mix for everyone to enjoy. I ended up with broccoli balls with some kind of cheese-inspired sauce for my entree and a rice porridge with fruit for... More

Simple yet cozy interior, little garden outside and divine food - that's Chesmu. High quality, healthy ingredients and really well prepared meals, with a large choice of dishes (vegetarian!). But if you're a meat-eater, don't worry, the food is anything but dull and there is always a choice of richer, more cheesy flavors and pastas for those who are not... More

Chesmu is this amazing vegetarian / vegan restaurant in Nuremberg. It's located in the Johannis-area, that boasts of several restaurants. In fact, on the very same road there are two other Indian restaurants and we all know that Indian food is a Godsent for a vegetarian. Yet Chesmu manages to distinguish itself by means of a niche menu, lovely wooden... More
