Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
“​I love this place for the buffet always presents freshly prepared vegan and vegetarian options throughout the day. The dishes are varied, spiced to the right point, inventive, and just finger-licking delicious. You pay by weight (excluding a small bread roll which is free) at the bar. I would recommend you find a place to sit first and then go and see what your palate facies. Tap water is free (ask where to get it).”

Café
“There’s scarcely a bar which has made history in the way the Odeon has. For decades, it was the haunt of international intellectuals. Exiled writers, painters, and musicians all found a second home at the Odeon. Klaus Mann, Benito Mussolini, Stefan Zweig, James Joyce, Albert Einstein, Lenin – the list is interminable.”
