Our Restaurant at Brussels Exhibition
The restaurant built by the British Vegetarian Society in
Brussels. The wording below the roof says: 'Restaurant Vegetarien'.
The people, just visible in the upper floor windows give an
idea of the size.
The International Exhibition at Brussels is announced to open on
the 22nd of April. We are hopeful that the Vegetarian Society's Restaurant
will prove an interesting feature of the Exhibition. The organisation
has been carried through by our Secretary, Mr. Broadbent, and will
be under his direction throughout the term of the Exhibition. The
propaganda at our restaurant will be of an international character,
and some of the literature of all the chief Vegetarian Societies will
be exhibited for sale. There will be waitresses of Belgian, Dutch,
German and English nationality, and there will be tables at which
the English, Dutch and German are spoken ; each will carry a miniature
flag of the country represented by the waitress. The manager, Miss
Linke, speaks fluently English, French and German, as do also other
of our helpers at the restaurant. Breakfasts luncheons, teas and evening
dinners will he supplied. Breakfasts and teas at 75 centimes. Four-course
dinners at one franc. The position of our restaurant is one of the
most beautiful in the Exhibition. It is under the shelter of the magnificent
Bois de Cambre, and we have been fortunate in the Exhibition authorities
having decided to make a public entrance at our door from these beautiful
Dr I.Toteyko is gathering, by means of questions and answers, information
