Vegabond . . . Vegan-friendly whole-foods store! The name says a lot as does the tagline. But honestly, even if you aren’t a vegan or close to becoming one, it is well worth the visit. Bring your reusable shopping tote because there are so many goodies to purchase.
Beautifully located on the Leliegracht, it’s the new specialty shop in my city. So, if you are an Amsterdam dweller or just visiting . . . check this shop out! First of all, I must say the owner, Babet, is charming. She greets shoppers with warmth, enthusiasm and positive vibes . . . dare I say, “it must be something in the food?”
Not only is it a shop but a place to sit and enjoy a coffee, tea, smoothie, fresh juice, soup, dessert . . . It kinda offers it’s customer a place to hang out and just be . . . a little bit vegan! With a sunny, interior sitting area overlooking the canal, one can take a well deserved pause and relax. There is also a storefront sitting area outside if the weather is agreeable.
Vegabond is full of rare specialty items! Products include frozen dinner entrees, ice creams, alternative cheeses, gluten-free pastas & cookies, whole grain chips, sugar free sweets, raw chocolates, superfood powders and on . . . and on. A shop & a cafe all in one which gives it’s customer a taste of vegan living . . . it is definitely worth stopping by and staying for awhile!
To enjoying some vegan foods . . . one visit to Vegabond at a time! Hugs, M.
