Great lunch buffet

Posted on 09 / 02 / 2014

planet organic is more than a health food store. It offers an excellent lunch time buffet: a wide range of tasty hot and cold options. I always go there when in London. there is a lathe and comfortable seating area as well, so you are not forced to take away. Good use of herbs and spices, so food is not bland and boring, but also has a good range of textures.

Pros: Hot and cold buffet, Good indoor seating option, Central location
Cons: Not open for dinner!

I've been here a few times now. I was looking for vegan squirty cream and found it here. Great choice of everything, specially vegan sweets and chocolate which can be hard to find.The hot food is great and a good price- £6.50 for a medium box of take away and the vegan banana and walnut muffins are addictive! Also the Tofu sandwich is great for a quick snack on the go. :)
The only problem I had was when I asked if the hot chocolate can be made vegan, I was told it could but then saw when it was being made that the hot chocolate itself was not vegan, I got a full refund though but if I hadnt had double checked then I would have consumed a non vegan drink. They need to clearly label this on their hot drinks.

Vegan heaven

Posted on 01 / 17 / 2012

I went there because it was the closest organic supermarket to my hotel. Compared to organic supermarkets in Germany and Austria this place felt like a vegan heaven to me: everything vegan is clearly marked as such. Maybe that's nothing special in England (I don't know) but for me it was wonderful. I love it!

Pros: clearly marked vegan items, excellent vegan assortment

Organic supermarket with lunch cafe

This store has almost everything, but the prices are quite high. Breakfast soya porridges were good. They sell great packed food products to go also. Service was very friendly.

Pros: Product range, Service
Cons: Prices

my favourite place for lunch in all of London

Posted on 09 / 10 / 2010

I eat here almost every day, as it is right by my work. The hot food to go section is delicious, and has over 30 different vegetarian options every day, including lasagne, salads, stir fry, curry, rice, dahl, roast vegies and much more! You can choose as many different options as you like.
It is also a fairly sizable supermarket with organic foods, which is a bit pricey, but you can get a lot here that you can't get anywhere else.
You can also get packaged meals and sandwiches etc., these include non-vege options for carnivorous friends.
Everything is organic and clearly labelled for vege, vegan, gluten-free etc.

Pros: delicious, huge range, healthy
Cons: not cheap

Great food bar with loads of sweets too

The grocery store part is toward the back as you go straight ahead at the entrance. To the right is the food bar and sitting area is next to the front windows. To the left is the fridge with takeaway options like baguettes.

The grocery store is fairly comprehensive with all areas covered including cleaning products and skincare.
The food bar is quite extensive with savory options which you can choose from ranging from stews and cooked vegetables to salads. What I have had has been decent and quite freshly made. The cake and slice section is equally extensive and looks very tempting with vegan options labelled. I have yet to try anything from this section yet.
They use disposable plates and cutlery made from wood fibre materials. It's environmentally probably better to wash and reuse plates and cutlery.

Service is fine.

Groceries from this store are possibly a little bit more expensive than some other stores.
The food bar is quite reasonably priced.

This is a strong four and a half stars

Pros: Food bar -food, -well priced
Cons: grocery section poss bit expensive, disposable plates, cultlery

A good lunch option

4
Posted on 05 / 20 / 2009

The lunch bar is very nice, everything is labelled vegetarian or vegan. There's usually at least a couple of vegan options plus rice/potatoes etc and lots of different salads. They do a small, medium or large box filled with whatever options you choose. A medium box is £4.70 (May 09) and is plenty for me as a lunch. There is also a nice (recently refurbished) seating area at the front of the shop. It does get very busy at lunchtimes but if you can time your visit to avoid the rush it's a good lunch option.

Good lunchtime break

I go about once every week to stock up on groceries at lunchtime or take away a hot vegetarian meal or salad box from the counter. Choices include lasagne, seitan stir-fry, chilli beans, broccoli and some kind of black bean stew. All food here is clearly marked vegetarian/vegan and by 1pm there is usually a queue of beautful people (apart from me) snaking all the way down to the organic veggies. They do smoothies and cakes too. (Although the counter stuff is veggie and there are loads of organic groceries, they do sell a little bit of meat and fish in the fridge section.)

Pros: Quick service, Relatively cheap, Huge selection
Cons: Gets busy

This is a great health food shop, focusing on organics. They sell great sandwiches, salads & drinks too - with a nice eat in area at the front. It gets very busy at lunchtimes.

Pros: Good selection, Great location
Cons: Gets busy, Can be pricy
