A look inside vegan shop and café VegaBond in Amsterdam (NL)

Shop review #18 – Vegabond is an all vegan shop at one of the canals in Amsterdam. It’s not very big, but packed with vegan goodies! Mainly food items, and some books too.

Here are some photos to give you an idea of what’s on sale at Vegabond in Amsterdam:

You can also order some food, either to take away, or to enjoy there. There aren’t that many seating places though (just a couch and one table), so don’t expect a restaurant style setting. I can imagine that at lunchtime, all the places are taken. We didn’t order any food at vegabond, since we had lunch that day at De Vegetarische Traiteur (about a 10 min walk from vegabond) but this is the menu that was available the day we visited:

You do have a nice view at the typical houses along the canal:

If it was closer, I surely would have bought some icecreams to take home! Great selection!

I bought some kala namak = black salt (had been looking for this for some time!) and this little jar of white chocolate spread! I already had the white chocolate buttons of Vantastic foods, and I love them. I loved this spread, but I only got to taste one serving of it, and then unfortunately dropped the jar on the floor …
Dang! Need to go to Amsterdam to get another one! 🙂
