Excellent

5 Posted on 07 / 13 / 2014

The best place to shop for vegan and health foods, snacks, and sweets. They always have a variety of vegan cheeses, tempeh, and mock meats. They carry most of the famous Greek violife brand and some foreign brands as well. I was so excited to find Fry's products too (try the "chicken" strips)! In addition to that, they carry tea, packaged breads, flours, nuts, seeds, legumes, pasta, condiments, non-dairy milks, cereals, supplements, international foods, and more. They also have a small selection of bath products. I found an excellent vegan toothpaste there. Do not shop here without grabbing a freshly baked sweet or savory pie. The vegan bougatsa, a phyllo pastry filled with vegan cream, is not to be missed. Bonus, the shop keepers, Fotis and Elisavet, are two of the kindest people on the planet. An all around awesome shop and shopping experience.

Pros: Friendly, Everything you need, Bougasta(freshly baked vegan cream pie!)

Amazing Amazing Amazing

This place is awesome. The staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel welcome - almost like a good friend they haven't seen in a while.

The selection is great - all kinds of foods from mock meats to frozen dinners, fresh-baked items to candy, pastas and dried goods.

I was really happy to find this place and to support a local vegan business. Definitely recommend going here.

Pros: All vegan, Really friendly

Great little place

We stopped by Bamboo before heading up to the Acropolis for the afternoon, and grabbed some pies for lunch (note: they are take-away only). They were really tasty and we appreciated the staff explaining which pies were which in English.

We came back in the evening to pick up some supplies for dinner (and couldn't resist snacking on another pie each). For a small shop, they really have a great range of vegan treats - faux meats, vegan cheese, croissants, biscuits, drinks and more.

Pros: Awesome pies, Friendly staff, Good range

Our favorite source of Vegan ingredients in Greece

5 Posted on 11 / 02 / 2013

We cannot say enough good things about Bamboo Vegan! They are friendly, extremely helpful, know their products inside and out and they go out of their way to provide excellent customer service! We live in Patra so we are not able to visit Bamboo Vegan as much as we would like, but they do allow us to order from them by phone! This is extremely convenient for us because we have no other way of currently acquiring vegan cheese or nutritional yeast for our recipes!

They are a small shop, so do not expect a bakery full of variety, but they do have fresh food available on a daily basis.

Pros: 100% vegan, Has some gluten-free ingredients, Best customer service in Greece

Great Selection of Vegan Products!

5 Posted on 02 / 07 / 2013

I love Bamboo Vegan. It's my favorite "deli" in town. They pack so many nice vegan things into that little space! They have big selection of vegan cheeses (cream cheese, spreads, cheese that melts, sliced, mozzarella etc), soy yogurts, seitan, vegan burgers and sausages, big variety of chocolates and desserts, nutritional yeast and many many more vegan staples!

Their baked goods are also amazing! Must try the bougatsa, potato pie, spinach pie. They now serve pizza too!

It's worth your time to stop by and check out the great selection and the super friendly folks.

Pros: great vegan products selection, vegan cheese in Athens!!!!, great prices

Not much of a bakery

2 Posted on 02 / 05 / 2013

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.

Pros: friendly, tasty pittas (phyllo dough pies)
Cons: not so conveniently located, poor selection of baked goods , not as advertised

    Plase consider we are a 6-months old shop, and we are just trying to do our best with the bakery part of the shop. We will very soon have a bigger variety of fresh stuff!

    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 :)

    Thank u
