Great Selection of Vegan Groceries

Posted on 02 / 23 / 2013

I was visiting Perth for a business trip and was so happy to find PAWS to stock up on some nutritious snacks. It's a not-for-profit organisation that do so many wonderful things they do for the local community, like providing housing next door, and jobs for those in need. They have a great selection of grocery items, beauty goods, and a hot-food snack bar - everything vegan of course!

Worth a look

We went on a Saturday afternoon for lunch, it's located walking distance from the art gallery district. Something about the name of the place turned me off slightly, maybe because I don't normally look to community groups for quality food, but I'm glad we went and would return for the raw pie alone.
The cafe serves both raw and cooked vegan dishes from a counter. You can order small, medium, or large plates. My husband and I both got a medium raw plate for $10 each, with a nice variety and quantity of salads, raw crackers, etc. He got falafel and I got pizza, and we both enjoyed them. The standout was the raw chocolate beetroot pie, $6. Really great flavor combinations, and absolutely no overt "health" taste. The two other pies, chocolate, and lime, also looked very tempting.

The store is well stocked for health foods including nutritional yeast and other grains that might be hard to find, plus fake cheese and ice cream products.

Pros: quality food, location, good mission

A little haven

I stepped into PAWS after arriving to Perth from Singapore and felt myself sigh the sigh I sigh when I feel relief at being in a place that feels like home. Not a huge selection, but they have some great stuff in there. And there is a raw and cooked deli section with nice couches and tables and chairs so you can relax and eat in. Really great staff.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great products, Relaxed atmosphere

Great idea but intimidating

Posted on 05 / 08 / 2010

The people are great, the store sells great foods that are hard to get anywhere else, but the idea of 'donation'(it's asked for up front) is off-putting. The serving sizes are small and people might find they're better off at Subway for lunch, which would be a shame because this place has it's heart in the right place. If you have an appetite, you may be made to feel as though you're greedy here, but I'm sure it's inadvertent because the people who work in PAWS are so very nice and extremely friendly.

Pros: Vegan, Friendly service
Cons: Donation pricing, small portions, hard to park

    They have switched from "pay as you like" to set-prices for all their food. They do offer discounts to concession card holders for some things. And customers who are financially struggling can still make a "donation" in lieu of full payment.

PAWS has a great range of vegan grocery items such as mock meat, chocolates, drinks, spices, personal care items, dog/cat food etc. Staff are friendly and there is also a net cafe and small library of animal/environment/vegan books to read. They also have a Monday evening feast and Tues-Friday lunches which are 100% vegan too.
