Good selection of speciality items

I'm not sure why, but they don't stock Alpro almond milk, which you can get in places like Tesco. One of the few places that you can find specific items like Violife, Vegusto, or Tofutti in Edinburgh, and this place has the best range of each brand.

A bit on the pricey side, but good for a treat, especially with so much choice! Also they have a 5% (I think?) student discount if you show a student card.

Pros: Great selection, Student discount
Cons: Price

Lots of vegan staples

This is the best natural foods market we found in Edinburgh. We got many of our staples there: Oatley cream, cocoa powder, etc. However, the puff pastry was actually not vegan (though it is at the regular stores) and the ready made fridge food was dry and boring. We will definitely go back to stock up on vegan specialty items.

Pros: Good range of products
Cons: Boring ready-made food

Friendly shop

This shop has a lot to offer and a wide range of products. The staff is very helpful, which I needed because it is a bit chaotic and I had troubles to find what I was looking for. However, they have so many things to offer that I can find something I've never tried before every time I go there, and temptation to buy and try all these things is huge.
Check out their chocolates, they have many yummy vegan choices :)

Pros: Product range, Friendly Staff, Location
Cons: A little bit chaotic

Best shop for veggies

Posted on 05 / 19 / 2013

This place is excellent with a big range of options for vegans to try and stock up on. Real Foods is one of the big things I'll miss about not living in Edinburgh anymore.

They have a slighly complicated discount system for students, (5% off some goods but not goods already discontented) which the staff have on a few occassions miscalculated.

Pros: Range of options, friendly staff
Cons: Miscalculating discounts

My favourite food shop in Edinburgh!

I go here very often to do my food shopping because they have such an amazing range of vegan produce, especially the amazing Sojade fruit yoghurts and vegan ice creams as well as vegan chocolate of all shades! Many of their products are slightly on the pricey side but it's all very good quality and delicious.

Pros: Great vegan selection, Good quality

Slightly bigger than their other store in Brougham Street, but that's good too. Amazing choice, helpful staff. Can't fault it.

At first glimpse it doesn't seem like a lot, but then you find a few pockets and realize this is a well stocked natural food's store. Really well located, too! I can't imagine you won't find what you are looking for or close to it here!

Extremely well stocked

Some great products here tightly packed in what is quite a large shop. Prices can be steep, unless you can find some special offers but I suppose that's how it is with independent shops. I cannot fault the huge range of foods and toiletries etc, there are things I have never seen before available here. Some of the organic vegetables look a bit ropey but they come straight from the earth and I'm sure they'd be fine if prepared on the day of purchase. Over all, a nice shop in a cool part of the city.

Pros: range, location
Cons: price

Good choice health food shop at the top of Broughton St in Central Edinburgh. Open 7 days a week. Staff were helpful and pleasant enough. Plenty for vegan veggies.

Pros: Good choice / Very vegan veggie friendly, central, Open 7 days
