Very conveniently located and has nice long opening hours. I really appreciate that many of the vegan items are clearly marked as such. It's not somewhere to get a full meal for a train journey from, but has a good choice of biscuits, nuts, dried fruits, raw chocolates and drinks, as well as cosmetics, supplements and toiletries. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Pros: location

This store is one of the few places in Central Station where you can get some decent vegan food on the go. (Other options are Starbucks coffee, falafel from the shoarma place, Smullers french fries, Julia's whole wheat penne pasta without cheese, and some items from HEMA and AH to go)
The Billy's Farm cookies are nice and from the pastry section the coconut-macaroon (=kokosmakroon), wakame rolls and samosa are vegan. Beware that the seitan and tempeh rolls are not vegan because they contain butter (=roomboter).
The store also carries quite a few vegan staples such as nutritional yeast, nuts, chia, dried fruit etc. For meat analogues and vegan dairy you are better off in a supermarket or bigger health food store in the city center.

Can't really miss this place as you walk through the Centraal Station towards the main exit. Thought we'd get a small soya milk here but no luck. The fridge was also poorly stocked. No worries though as otherwise it does sell various veg whole foods and products. It's not somewhere I'd come back to necessarily as you'd have to backtrack to the train station and there are much better stores in the centre. To be honest even Albert Hein the main supermarket chain has better soya milk selections. Nonetheless it's 100% meat free so an asset to the city. 

Pros: Handy for travelling
Cons: Limited fridge selection, Pricey
