Respond to Review of Bamboo Vegan Store
Review: We came to this store primarily to buy some vegan bread and baked goods. Their website states: "Our Vegan Bakery part of the shop is another treat we are happy to bring you, providing your everyday selection of fresh quality breads and vegan pies. You can just come by to pick up freshly baked bread for home ..." We found only some packaged breads and nothing particularly exciting in breads. There was a larger choice of such breads in a different health food store that was more convenient (the one next door to the Avocado restaurant). The owner was VERY friendly, and did give us, as a gift, some home-made bread (a portion of a loaf), but there were no such breads available for purchase. We did buy some of the spanakopitas and potato pie, and a sweet pie made with similar type dough (none of which was whole wheat, which I would have preferred) - all very tasty, but I was expecting a "bakery" to have cakes, muffins, etc. We bought a bunch of stuff - we needed some provisions for our stay in Athens - but were quite disappointed. As I said, the owner was very friendly, but bottom line is we came to buy stuff that we wanted, and this was a disappointment.

For the moment we are more focused on having exclusive and necessary products for vegans and vegetarians (packaged vegan cookies, sweets, croissants etc, vegan meat & dairy substitutes).
Oh and we do have freshly baked bread on order :)
