Great raw vegan find

4 Posted on 05 / 25 / 2013

This restaurant has a daily menu that includes a vegetarian and raw vegan option for $11000 COP. This is the first place I have found in Colombia that offers raw vegan food, and it was delicious. They also sell all kinds of breads and many other products. It's worth checking out.

Pros: Raw vegan option, Sells vegan/ vegetarian products

Room for improvement

We used to buy their bread occasionally at Saludpan. However several times when we have asked questions about the ingredients, the response from the clerks has been guessing about it or else a shrug (who knows, or cares?). A clerk would look at a loaf labeled oat bread, for example, and say that it contained oats. Beyond that, no interest or effort to find out the rest of the ingredients. The ingredients are important to know for people with special dietary needs. For consumers who are used to reading ingredients right on the label, this is a big disappointment especially when the staff is unwilling or too lazy to be helpful.

Pros: Good products, Nice atmosphere
Cons: Lack of consumer information, Staff has little knowledge of products, Indifferent service

Great Place

Saludpan is a wonderful, healthy, unexpected escape from the frequently fried, overcooked, heavy meat meals of Colombia.
I think it is fantastic they offer not only vegan and raw options but also fish and I believe chicken. I think this encourages people who are not willing to eat a completely meatless meal to at least experience new grains, vegetables and healthy preparations of food.
It is also the only place I have found so far to get "real" peanut butter (just ground nuts)they make it fresh. They also have a large variety of whole grain breads for sale and a couple tasty gluten free options.

Pros: great food
Cons: grocery store products a bit expensive

Excellent food and ambiance

Love this little restaurant. The food was delicious, fresh and flavorful. They have meat as well as vegetarian options. There's an outdoor seating area as well as inside. They have a great store with all kinds of natural products including a bulk food section, several kinds of tofu, organic produce and whole grain breads - all of which can be difficult to find in Colombia.

It is a little more expensive at $9000COP (about $5 USD) for a set lunch but you're getting great food, beautiful presentation and a lovely setting.

This is a restaurant worth going to time and time again.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly service, Nice vibe

peaceful cafe atmosphere, high quality products

4 Posted on 01 / 08 / 2012

Both a predominantly vegetarian restaurant as well as a small organic foods market. Located near to "La 70," an active street in the Laureles neighborhood filled with bars and hotels, it's a great respite from the city that reminds me a bit of NYC village cafe. It is aimed at a more mid-upper class clientele than spots in the center, so prices are slightly higher.

They have a fixed meal which often includes quinoa, amaranth, and other good grains, and also offer several juices and vegan deserts. They carry the vegan ice cream line found in Vegetus. Although they seem to be over 90% veg, with emphasis on macrobiotic, there are a few meat dishes available.

Great if you are staying in the Laureles/Estadio area, also worth a visit to check out the area and stock up on goods.

Pros: nice atmosphere, high quality products
Cons: not open late, serves meat
