The shop is not that big, but is very close to the central station and sells a bunch of different kind of things, mostly non-fresh (dried pastas, beans, nuts, ...). The staff is very helpful (even in Dutch if you're persistent) and I like it there.
It's not very cheap though.
Given lack of truly vegan-friendly eateries in the centre of Brussels, this place is a life-saver. Has everything you'd expect to find in a UK health food shop, more or less - except for the fact that so many fewer people on the continent seem to be dairy-free for ethical reasons, I didn't see any soya milk fortified in B12 or D vitamins (same problem in France).
The guy working in the shop today turned out to be vegan too, and when I asked about local tips couldn't provide anything not already on HappyCow (pat yourselves on the back, HappyCow!), beyond the omnipresent Exki, which are useful if you're desperate and don't mind eating a salad out of a plastic pot.
The shop isn't massive but makes a very good use of it's space to offer a suprisingly large variety for the space it's in. The price range is moderate, and atmosphere is relaxed. We were pleased to find some cheap whole earth drinks and clear spring oat cakes, useful for us as we're backpacking!
Great organic shop with a large variety of products. Staff is keen to help and order items they do not currently have in stock. The shop is open every day of the week until 8 pm (7 pm on Sundays), quite noteworthy in Brussels.
The bulk section is particularly useful for travelers who need to buy only small quantities.
Very good shop with some fresh produce, small freezer and refrigerated section. Packaged goods, bulk food section, snack bars, baby food. Many household products. Cosmetics. Popular place.
We stumbled upon this store while finding our way back to the hotel. It was just a short walk from the central station, which was right around where we were staying, so location couldn't be better for us. They pretty much have whatever you need to be self-sufficient in this not so vegan-friendly city. We actually got our breakfast supplies from here - fruits, soygurt, and some cereal from the bulk section, not that far from breakfast at home really!
