good vegan options but no vegan sandwiches

pretty nice small store for some natural goods. Their takeaway section differed from stuff made in house and foods that have been delivered as it seems. What was available was good although there was nothing in the wrap or sandwich category that day that was suitable for vegans. So I ended up getting the chickpea salad and some dolmas. Both of which were enjoyed greatly.

Great grocery and to go section

A wonderful grocery store. Lots of vegan things to choose from in all the aisles. The grab and go cooler has a bunch of items that are vegan including stuff from Chow Maine (a local place that makes noodle dishes and dumplings). The cafe has limited vegan baked goods but mostly gluten free.

Pros: Grab and go section, Grocery items , Supplement section

Would rate it lower if I could

This place has few vegan options and the woman at the counter was extremely rude. Out 5-year-old daughter needed to use the restroom and was told to go to the gas station, which we tried, but was out of order, so we had to go to the regular grocery store adjacent—which has a better assortment of vegan options. When we checked out, we (four of us) had purchased food for each of us to eat, and the same woman made a big deal out of asking for utensils for each of us to eat with—saying we could only have 1 spoon per soup and 1 fork for the salad. Ridiculous behavior—and I won’t be a patron of this store ever again.

Pros: Some vegan options, Natural groceries

Cons: Poor/rude customer service, Few vegan options with…, …better selection at adjacent grocery store

Super Helpful for Acadia!

If you are traveling into the park and don’t have access to a kitchen where you are staying… this is a must-stop. Offers pre-packaged vegan sandwiches, soup, salad, sushi and more that can be taken on a hike.
Don’t be afraid to venture out to some other restaurants too, but this is great for lunch on the go.

Best Vegan Options in Bar Harbor

Lots of good options here for snacks/drinks and a decent selection of premade food to take to-go. I wish I skipped all the other food options in Bar Harbor and just went here instead lol. I visited near closing time, and there were soups, pasta salads, and baked goods available. Pricey but pretty worth it in an area with scant vegan options.

Pros: More options than other places

Cons: Expensive

Togo sandwiches and fillings!

Great options here for fresh vegan baked goods as well as Togo sandwiches and fillings! We bought bread and chickpea filling up hiking with us. So great to find this place

Bountiful Vegan Fair

A MUST stop if you’re vegan and visiting Bar Harbor. They have everything you need to survive a week in lobster land and feel like you’re keeping your nutrition on track. Fresh fruits, grocery items, hiking snack essentials like bars, dried fruits and nuts to prepared sandwiches and ready made meals. A great stop before or after visiting Acadia National Park (a quick 10 minute car drive). We have been to Bar Harbor several times and this place is always at the top of the list to make sure we eat well on our trip. Easy parking right in front of the shop. Bring a reusable bag or carry your items out by hand.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Not bad considering...

Bar Harbor turns out to be way less vegan-friendly than I thought, so I'm glad this place exists at all. Prices are a little higher than what I'm used to, but that's to be expected. I just wish there were more vegan meals to go. Some organic fruit would've been nice too.

Pros: that it exists at all

Cons: pricey, limited vegan selection

Vegan haven!!!

In what I like to call a “vegan desert” this place is a jewel!!! The vegan fridge options are phenomenal. Highly recommend!!! Such good food to pack before hiking or just a fast grab and go. Reasonably priced considering, too!

Great vegan finds!

Stayed in Bar Harbor for a few days. This is the first time we didn’t pack any snacks with us as we were banking on finding some treats here. A & B Naturals had a great selection of vegan options. They also make smoothies and fresh juices. Perfect place to stop before or after hiking in Acadia National Park.

Pros: Lots of vegan choices , Smoothie and fresh juice options, Natural health care options

Cons: Small selection of bakery items were not vegan

Stop here for some great vegan foods to get you by.

Unfortunately there's no vegan place in town. Fortunately there's A and B. If you're vegan you should check out the bento boxes in the refrigerator on the right when you walk in. Made by Chow Maine and they taste great.

This place also has a pretty good selection of other vegan supplies.

Pros: great selection

Hidden Gem

So happy to find this market. I was hesitant, but when driving by was like oh there's that place, and I stopped. The smoothie bar was good, as was their coffee. The Market was stocked with a variety of snacks, meals, meal side, fresh veggies, condiments, vitamins, soaps, personal items, ECT. Good little place for us special people 😉

Pros: Variety, Smoothie coffee bar

Cons: A little pricey

Great vegan friendly spot!

I was so happy to find this place! They had a lot of vegan things to purchase and a smoothie shop inside. The vegan grocery items weren't even marked up very much, which I thought was great considering it's such a small town. Would definitely recommend!

the best vegan options in town

After 3 days visiting Bar Harbor, we finally found this small grocery store. We hoped that we would have found it the first day because the vegan options they had were so much better than at the restaurant. We bought the Vegan Bento Box, vegetarian tuna sub and falafel sandwich.

Pros: vegan options to go

Great Local Co-op

We went to this great health food store for vegan picnic provisions twice during our stay. They had a vegan soup, and vegan salad and noodle options in the cold case each time. Also a nice little selection of organic wines.

Pros: Great selection., Parking, Walkable from downtown Bar Harbor

Very cute small market. They have a small smoothie area, however, the woman working it seemed unhappy to be serving us. They have a small fridge with some vegan to go things and they sell some vegan food in the market.

Well stocked nice little natural foods store. They have a tiny deli area where they make smoothies and they have coffee and tea as well. They also have some grab n go prepared foods including a few vegan options. Friendly helpful staff.

Pros: well stocked, vegan options available

Cons: not all vegan, deli area tiny
