Prinsengracht 60-62, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Quick cereal coffee with vegan oat cookies

15 Mar 2013

We planned our visit to Amsterdam mid March 2013 expecting Spring weather. Instead we got minus temperatures and the coldest Spring weather since the 1920's. We heard about Bolhoed and were thrilled to find it. We dashed in for a quickie thaw-out session and had a cereal coffee made with soy milk and vegan oat cookies. Both yummy!
Bolhoed has laid back atmosphere, decor and staff.
We will be back. Especially to try the yummy sweet treats we only saw when we were leaving. Like raw vegan chocolate tart. It looked heavenly.

Not really an eatery

16 Mar 2013

We found this place thanks to Happy Cow. We knew it would be hard to find and it was. Truth is, it really is part of the gym and you enter into the gym and turn left to find it.
There is seating but this is in no way an eatery. Rather, it's a small retail outlet that happens to sell a handful of food items.
They have four different pre-made smoothies which sell for €4 to €6 each depending on the size. They sell raw snack bars, a few raw biscuits and cacao items. It's a limited selection.
Have to say, the chocolate smoothies are seriously yummy.
Not to be missed.

Great food

16 Mar 2013

We very nearly didn't go to the Vliegende Schotel (Flying Saucer) based on the reviews I read on Happy Cow. I'm glad I read the reviews. We went NOT expecting swanky decor and brisk service, so weren't disappointed on that score. Let's just say the decor is rustic and the service laid back. Fortunately we had plenty time.
But . . I am SO glad we went. The food was fabulous. They serve tasty down to earth food. It's not inexpensive (around €12 to €14 for a main) but the portions are generous. Note! They do not accept credit cards despite stickers on the door. We shared a starter of fried seitan with a fresh tomato sauce and we each had the Dutch Stamppot main. It's a mixed veg mash with gravy and came with a mix of five different sides. No space for dessert after all that.

Fresh fast food doesn't come better than from here

10 Apr 2013

Kauai does not do greasy burgers and fatty fries.
What they do - is delicious fast food.
The good news Kauai is a franchise. There are stores located all over South Africa.
Think freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies, salads, sandwiches and wraps.
My favorites are the hummus and avocado wrap and their vegan Superfood salad.

The very best place to eat in Cape Town

10 Apr 2013

Osumo seems to be owned/run by two women. They rotate from store to store and appear to be hands on. It shows.
Service is consistently good.
Osumo are not vegetarian but they have plenty vegetarian and wait for it . . . . vegan options.
I love, love their red espresso. An espresso but made with rooibos tea. And their pink and green quinoa salads are also yummy.

Lola's should not be on Happy Cow

16 Mar 2013

Lola's was an institution in Cape Town for vegetarians. Since, like - forever!
Then it changed hands.
Pity the new owners aren't vegetarian. Nor do they particularly care to cater for vegetarians.
Lola's is sort of veg-friendly. At a push. Do NOT go there if you remember how it used to be. You WILL BE disappointed.

The BEST place to eat in Cape Town

16 Mar 2013

I live in Cape Town and can safely say, hand on heart, this is my absolute favorite place to eat and shop. There are a few smaller Wellness shops but the one on Kloof Street, Gardens, has it all.
There is a Well Cafe where you can eat while you surf the Internet or read their complementary newspaper. My best is their Superfood salad, but I also love their vegan protein smoothie.
You can buy everything from organic frozen food to vitamins, or vegan candles, green household cleaners and formaldehyde free nail polishes.
They also have a Well Spa where you can treat yourself to a massage or a facial.
