Vegetarian and vegan restaurants

The vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Bielsko-Biała have a lot in common. They all can be described as simple, wallet friendly, ‘homely’ restaurants with casual atmosphere. These places are rather minimalistic in terms of decorations. You won’t find the newest trends there and they will not be your choice if you are looking for romantic or ‘special occasion’ dinner. But whatever is lacking in terms of interior design, is compensated with freshly made, quality and home style of food.
