Vegetarian buffet at 2pm. several dishes were finished and the only hot food left was three potatoes. When we asked for a refill we were first offered a soup instead or a reduced price. But as also other dishes were finished we got our money back after some discussion.

Tucked in the courtyard at the end of Ystads walking street, Kafe Helsa På is an excellent vegetarian option - even satisfying a devoted omnivore such as myself. Great price, friendly service. Worth a visit if walking by hungry!

If you are in Ystad I would recomment to visit the cafe "Helsa På Kafé" that are placed in a "back yard" within the old buildings; and with really cool shops as well. The cafe have a great cakes; and a vegetarian lunch that are delicious. But just for the atmosphere you should visit the place and enjoy a cup... More

We loved this place so much that we came back 3 times. The buffet lunch is extraordinary and they made us a picnic lunch to take to the beach as well. Fresh . Local . Vegetarian . Made with love, clearly. <3

This place caters well for vegans, vegetarians, and also those that may require a bit "more". Amazing desserts, I had both 2 of their chocolate hearts, as well as one of their energy balls, the actual "sandwich" for lunch was good too and the bread was changed for me to be without dairy. We came just before closing (at 1600... More

The lunch buffet includes homemade soup, salads, grains and breads that will sustain and nourish your body and soul. The owners are on hand, in... More

Called in for a sandwich and fika. I missed the buffet. The staff were welcoming and friendly.The food on display looked good, my sandwich was tasty and well presented. The interior of the restaurant is scandinavian vintage and quite relaxed. Outside the courtyard is a nice place to sit and eat. Price for cider, sandwich and cake was 130 SEK... More

I have become a regular customer for lunch during spring and summer and the buffet is very tasty and fresh with to of the best and sweetest cooks in vegetarian food. The restaurant is very cosy in a yard in the medieval Streets of Ystad. They have local ice cream and home made cakes and good coffee.

Whilst staying at the Red Bird Farm in Ystad, the Proprietors recommended we took a meal at this restaurant seeing as my wife was Vegatarian and insisted I needed a break from the normal daily meat intake (as they do). I was really impressed! Beautiful soups, breads, vegetable dishes and delicious freshly cut fruit. Set in a small and quaint... More

Realy tasty buffet, nice location and housemade stuff. Perhaps a little bit alternative but worth the visit absolutely.
