We spent two full days and three nights in Eisenach (home of J.S. Bach and the Wartburg) while crossing Germany last week. We were looking for some fresh, lighter fare than the typical German food we had been having and were delighted to find Zucker & Zimt right on the Markt in Eisenach.

We liked it so much that we ate dinner there A second time. We had curried chicken and the trout the first night and the second night, we both had the trout, which was lightly breaded and came with roasted potatoes and fresh vegetables. We also had a delicious vegan pumpkin soup the first night and bought some very tasty cookies.

Nicole waited on us both nights and patiently translated the menu into English for us. She was very pleasant to talk with and made us feel welcome. If you're looking for a friendly, casual place with tasty fresh food in Eisenach, Zucker & Zimt is the place.

We stumbled here looking for a place open on Monday, and were very pleased with the result. We wouldn't describe it as Mediterranean as TripAdvisor has, but as Contemporary Fusion. It also focuses on the alternative health end but not to a rigorous degree. We both had meat ... But one was served with lovely fresh vegetables (rare in Germany) and the other with a nice salad. Pork, as in much of Germany is the prime meat ... Which is why we'd say fusion not Mediterranean. Nice wine options, and good alcohol free options. Lovely outlook onto the main square. Good service. A nicevalternative to heavy German food thatbstill feels local. All in all, a great find that we might have ignored if we'd gone by the Trip Advisor description.

German food is great however tends to be on the heavy side. Zucker provided a refreshing break. We went there for dinner. Enjoyed sitting at the square. Returned the next day for lunch. The menu offers a nice selection featuring mostly fresh organic ingredients. Tofu dishes are usually hit or miss. At Zucker they even make Tofu salad taste good. My husband enjoyed the Thai Chicken Curry dish.
