Food Ordering

Stuttgart Food Ordering

Order­ing food in Stuttgart is as easy as going online! This is par­tic­u­lar­ly advan­ta­geous if your Ger­man skills aren’t that strong. There’s no need for con­fus­ing back-and-forth on phone calls when you use the order­ing ser­vices from Lieferan­do, Too Good To Go, and Rewe.

Lieferando

Lieferan­do works with many restau­rants in the Stuttgart area with a huge vari­ety of food. They took over pre­vi­ous com­peti­tors Foodo­ra and Pizza.de, which means you get the max­i­mum selec­tion all in one con­ve­nient plat­form.

Lieferan­do works with all kinds of restau­rants, from full-ser­vice din­ing estab­lish­ments to faster food options, like deliv­ery-only restau­rants. Even if you’re locat­ed out­side the cen­ter, it’s easy to find con­nect­ed food estab­lish­ments in your area or see how much it will cost to get your food brought to you from downtown.

How It Works

Lieferan­do offers a web plat­form as well as an app, with a com­plete ver­sion in Eng­lish.

When you first enter your zip code, Lieferan­do dis­plays restau­rant logos as well as some key infor­ma­tion. Imme­di­ate­ly vis­i­ble are the type of cui­sine, hours open, esti­mat­ed deliv­ery time and cost, and the min­i­mum pur­chase val­ue.

You can use fil­ters to nar­row your results:

  • Are you in the mood for piz­za or pas­ta? Lim­it the cuisines to “Ital­ian.”
  • Are you veg­e­tar­i­an? There’s a fil­ter for var­i­ous dietary pref­er­ences.
  • Are you on a bud­get? You can set your pre­ferred min­i­mum pur­chase val­ue and max­i­mum deliv­ery cost. You can also check whether any dis­counts are offered.

The ser­vice offers a huge range of pay­ment options, from cred­it card or Pay­pal online to cash at the door.

Too Good To Go

Too Good To Go aims to reduce food waste by offer­ing a plat­form to sell dis­count­ed food that would oth­er­wise be thrown out. They coop­er­ate with a wide vari­ety of restau­rants, bak­eries, and mar­kets, with most par­tic­i­pants clos­er to the city cen­ter.

Depend­ing on the type of sell­er, you may get a 30–70% dis­count on the food, although you usu­al­ly won’t have a free choice of what you get. Instead, you receive a box filled with left­over items, or you may be asked to pro­vide your own con­tain­er to be filled. Too Good To Go orders must be picked up in per­son with­in the des­ig­nat­ed time win­dow.

How It Works

Too Good To Go oper­ates only via mobile app, which is ful­ly func­tion­al in Eng­lish.

» Web­site   » Apple App   » Android App

You start by select­ing your loca­tion, either by zoom­ing in on the map of Ger­many, enter­ing “Stuttgart” in the search, or enabling loca­tion ser­vices. There are a few dif­fer­ent dis­play options: you can see sug­gest­ed restau­rants to “Dis­cov­er,” fil­tered results in “List,” or just browse the pins on the “Map.” It’s pos­si­ble to mark “Favorites” for quick access in the future.

There are quite a lot of fil­ter options to facil­i­tate your find­ing just the right food to res­cue. You can lim­it results to restau­rants, bak­eries, veg­e­tar­i­an options, or spe­cial­ties; select your pre­ferred time range to pick up; and remove options that are sold out for the day. The descrip­tions on each food venue’s page will tell you what kind of food you can expect for the set unit price and whether there are any spe­cial instruc­tions.

You can order as many units from one restau­rant as you like, but you will need to pay sep­a­rate­ly for units from dif­fer­ent restau­rants. Pay­ment is pos­si­ble via deb­it or cred­it card, Google Pay, Pay­Pal, or SOFORT bank trans­fer. You will receive a receipt in the app once your pay­ment is suc­cess­ful, which you will need to present at pick­up.

When you arrive at the restau­rant or bak­ery to pick up your box, just ask an employ­ee about Too Good To Go pick­up. Not every­one is well informed about the process, but a lit­tle patience will see you right. They will need to val­i­date the pick­up with­in the app. Keep in mind that in most cas­es you won’t get to choose what you car­ry out, so this may not be a good fit for peo­ple with food aller­gies or strict dietary restric­tions. Also, be sure to arrive on time – if you miss the des­ig­nat­ed time win­dow, you won’t get a refund!

Rewe

Rewe is a pop­u­lar gro­cery chain in Ger­many, and so far it is the only one to offer a com­plete online order­ing sys­tem for gro­ceries. Oth­er super­mar­kets offer an online look at this week’s deals and some also have the pos­si­bil­i­ty to order non-gro­cery items, but only Rewe gives the con­ve­nient option of fill­ing your online shop­ping bas­ket with comestibles either for pre-assem­bled pick­up or deliv­ery right to your door.

How It Works

Rewe offers a web plat­form as well as an app, but please note that both are avail­able only in Ger­man.

» Web­site   » Apple App   » Android App

The first step is to set your loca­tion. Next, select whether you want home deliv­ery or will come to the store to pick up your order. If you pre­fer to pick it up, you will need to select the store and you will have the option to pay in advance or upon pick­up. Oth­er­wise, you will enter your deliv­ery address when you pay. The ship­ping cost is quite low and varies depend­ing on the time and size of the time win­dow for deliv­ery, which is pos­si­ble between 8:00AM and 10:00PM. Online pay­ment is pos­si­ble via direct deb­it, Pay­Pal, or cred­it card.

If it’s your first time using the plat­form, you will need to cre­ate an account to set up your cart. Then you can search for items indi­vid­u­al­ly, browse by cat­e­go­ry, view rec­om­men­da­tions or see what’s dis­count­ed this week, and select from favorites or past orders. For­tu­nate­ly, there are pic­tures of every item to help make things easy!

Addi­tion­al func­tion­al­i­ties are also avail­able, such as view­ing coupons, cre­at­ing a week­ly shop­ping list, explor­ing reward point options, and print­ing recipes.
