Mellows Soups and More Restaurant Review
(Osnabrück, Germany) Saturday is always a great day to try out new food. And last Saturday we decided to try a cuisine I’m not a stranger of: healthy, organic cuisine.
Mellows Soups and More is a soup-and-sandwich bar inside the Osnabrücker Altstadt. It caters to all types of crowds with dietary preferences, whether you’re a meat-eater, a vegetarian, or a vegan. Personally, soups are a great thing for me, especially when it’s paired with an equally-great sandwich. So I didn’t second-guess my decision to try it out.

What We Ordered
Luckily, the sun was out. The day was perfect for some freshly-made food for lunch. So my husband and I settled on ordering their Suppen-Trio which consisted of Erbsen Minz, Chili sin Carne, and their version of Mulligatawny Soup, a Caesars Salad Wrap, and a slice of Feta-Spinach Quiche. Boy, we were so chuffed with our selections!
First off, the soups. They offered us their Suppen-Trio (“Soup trio” in German) and we chose Erbsen Minz, Chili sin Carne, and Mulligatawny Soup. They were all comforting and tasty.
First off, their Chili sin Carne. From the name of the soup itself, this soup does not have and traces of protein. The soup feels and tastes as if there were any, though! It was a great soup, but I was hoping they’d serve it with some tortilla chips.
Here is a soup called Erbsen Minz (“Chickpea Mint”). The soup itself delivered in terms of flavour: you can actually taste the chickpeas and mint in the creamy soup. Not a bad dish for a warm day.
The last soup of the trio is their version of the Mulligatawny Soup. This particular soup has its origins in the United Kingdom. Actually, this English-born concoction was inspired by Indian curries. I haven’t tried Mulligatawny soup prior to this, but I can say that it is darned good! There’s a hint of a varied mix of spices (I guessed that there was coriander, turmeric, and cayenne) in it that gives the soup its interesting layered flavours. I have to try this again soon!
They have some wraps on the menu, so we took a Caesar’s Salad wrap with all the fixins of their Caesar’s Salad. It’s got cooked chicken breast, arugula, some salad greens, and mayo. The wrap itself is fresh and satisfying with a crunch from the greens and the cooked chicken and the bite from the arugula.
And now, a slice of quiche. This one is a Feta-Spinach quiche and I am in love with it. The minute we stood in front of the counter to order food, I could smell the quiche. I knew this was a good quiche, and it didn’t disappoint. This one is a quiche after my own heart because it has a buttery crust, and the custardy filling is packed just right with spinach and feta. The slice itself is sort of rustic, too.
Lastly, I have just realised that this variant of Fritz-Kola is my new favourite. It reminded me of McDonald’s Coke Float, only with a touch of coffee. I have been drinking a few Fritz-Kola since we arrived here, but how come I haven’t even tried this? I’m not a coffee drinker nor a caffeine junkie, but this Fritz-Kola Kola-Kaffee-Limonade drink is something I’d have from now on.
Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience at Mellows! Honestly, Mellows made me miss The Soup Kitchen back in the Philippines.
We’ll definitely come back for soups and more! And for another slice of quiche!
If you’re feeling down after a week’s worth of junk food and stress, come visit this place for a light-hearted meal! After dining, you can have a sip of freshly-roasted coffee at Barosta (which is right in front of Mellows), or why not stroll along Redlingerstraße to feast your eyes? Mellows is situated right on a street filled with shops and establishments for everyone.
