Veggie Café Turns 111

The oldest vegetarian eatery in Europe celebrates another year of serving cruelty-free cuisine.

Opened in Zurich in 1898, Restaurant Hiltl has been owned and operated by the same German family for more than a century. The current proprietor, Rolf Hiltl, claims that vegetarianism has not only benefited his family financially, but has enriched their health as well. Hiltl, who took over the family business in 1998, says that his great grandfather lived to be 93. Loyal vegetarians and meateaters alike enjoy Hiltl's extensive menu—the tofu schnitzel sounds particularly novel and tasty—and daily indulge in the restaurant's impressive food bar, teeming with over 30 options. Hiltl says that while the ebb and flow of the economy-over, oh, the last 100 years-has changed, ethical eats are nothing new.
