Everytime I am in town from Los Angeles I make sure I stop at Suppengruen for lunch or dinner at some point during my stay. The super friendly staff and great variety of salads and soups in a relaxed and easy going atmosphere are just fantastic. Followers of my Chef-Lars food blog in LA know that I am always looking for places that offer unusual tastes and combinations of foods and Suppengruen offers all of that. From a wonderful offering of salads and home made salad dressings that never disappoint to a delicious offering of so many different soups. Regardless if I am looking for a good and proven staple of Hungarian Gulasch Soup, packed full of meat, or more vegetarian exciting favors and combination of spices and ingredience from all over the world, this place never disappoints. I know that if I would live and work here this would be at least a once a week lumch destination. Everything here is always fresh and home made from, what is obviously, the freshest and best ingredience. Well done Suppengruen, you deserve the 5-Stars!

Having read the reviews of Suppengrun, I went there some time ago but turned away when I saw the miserable, post-WWII building it was housed in. On that occasion, I ended up (by good fortune) in EssBar, which turned out to be a real find). However, the enthusiastic reviews kept lingering in my mind so I went back there this month.
The restaurant is a vegetarian buffet bar with a wide range of soups, a poor selection of salads and a poorer one of breads. Both members of staff were pleasant enough but rather introverted. Outside dining consisted of long trestle tables and benches. Unfortunately the building beside is being renovated, so you feel as if you're sitting beside a building site.
Soup was very thick - too thick for my liking - but great taste, like it was 100% vegetable purée (which it probably was). For a place that offers only soups and salads, one would expect some inventiveness in the salads - but, alas, they were very much run of the mill. There were two bread rolls avasilable, neither of them recommendable. Take a trip less than 30 minutes away to Tibits in Winterthur and see how this can be done.
I feel like I'm raining on everyone's parade - the reviews here have been so enthusiastic. But so many vegetarians seem to accept with delight standards of cuisine in veggie restaurants that their meat-eating friends would not accept in "normal" restaurants.
