Best Gluten Free Raw Veg Food! - Edit

100% gluten free, sugar free, raw vegan menu. Absolutely amazing and service was great. Very reasonably priced as well. Got 2 large smoothies, club sandwich and chocolate pie for about 23 euros. Everything is organic and they put out great vibes. New go-to place in Amsterdam.

Pros: 100% Raw Vegan, 100% Gluten Free, Reasonably Priced

Great selection for vegans - Edit

A really nice shop that is completely vegetarian and almost completely vegan with many organic items. There is a cafe at the same venue which I also recommend.

Pros: vegan selection, friendly staff, location

Raw Food! - Edit

Nice rawfood place.

Only problem is, you will have to wait a long time before being served. The owner puts a lot of energy and time in your dish. So take your time when going here.

Pros: Raw Food

Cons: Slow

alec63 28 Oct 2014 - Dear guests,
Thanks for taking the effort to give us feedback on our service. I'm very sorry to find out it has been such a drag.
Last year in july we finally had the chance to drastically improve our logistics. Since may 2014 we are open from 7AM. For breakfast, but also to prepare ourselves for instant serving. With great relieve I can now say we have altered the waiting time (as well as our staff from that period) to normal standards.
Again I apologize for the inconvenience and I wish you enjoy your next visit to us.

A really, really long wait - Edit

We were very excited to come to this place and try something new. Sadly we were very disappointed. Although at first we were the only two people there, it took a staff of two people almost half an hour to make us our smoothies. At home I make juices and smoothies all the time and it takes a maximum of ten minutes, so I am confused why it would ever take so long, even if you are taking it slow. After that we had to wait an astonishing hour and a half until we finally dared to ask whether our food was ready yet. They told us one part of our dish was ‘almost ready’ and the other part would come later. I honestly don’t know how you can take an hour and a half to prepare lunch and still not be finished. Although the waiting was not pleasant, the worst part was that the staff did nothing to make us feel taken care of. Nobody checked in on us, nobody apologized for taking so long and after the food was finally served nobody even explained what was on our plate, even though it was our first time in this restaurant. The food was fine, but after two really annoying hours of being hungry, bored and ignored, we weren’t able to get too excited about that anymore. A shame that a very decent meal was spoiled by such bad service.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Well made dishes

Cons: Bad service, Long wait

Rawlicious - Edit

Nice little restaurant with friendly stuff.
This small restaurant serves only Raw food and there is also a little shop where you can buy some superfoods.
We ordered the Rawfood plate with a raw club sandwich and the food was amazing, fresh and healthy. For dessert we ordered a raw "creme brulée" made from coconut... Wow this was really amazing!
If you are in Amsterdam and you want a good vegan rawfood meal, there is the place to go, but don't go there if you are in a hurry because they take their time to prepare your meal. Bring a little time with you and you would not be disappointed.

Pros: fresh, friendly, vegan

Super good food and very friendly staff / owners - Edit

This is a new place, serving very good raw vegan meals, all home made as far as I understood. The cook will take your order and explains what is what happily and patiently. By April 2012 they'll reopen with a somewhat better tuned menu, now they are fully open but apparently still looking for the right balance. Lots of choice in drinks, teas, boosts (new to me) and nut-milks. Large plates with arrangement of foods looks fantastic when served. Recommended! Close by Vondelpark.

Pros: choice, quality, friendliness

Cons: none
