First Review by RayJulian

Amazing selection - Edit

Good variety of vegan items, great bread section, vegan options clearly marked in the bakery, lots of frozen/refrigerated vegan "meats", Oatley milk and cream. A little on the pricey side.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Some favorite vegan specialty items

Cons: Pricey

Great! - Edit

I have been to many, many bio supermarkets and markets worldwide (that includes chains like Whole Foods and Planet Organic) and Basic Bio is one of my favourites! I think this is partially due to the high quality foods produced by German companies which are dedicated to making outstanding products (many of which are exported to all other countries in Europe as far as the UK). There are a range of bread products including a huge selection of rice cakes/puffed grains and in-house bakery. There are breakfast cereals (which are not loaded with sugars and other not-so-healthy additives that you find in some 'organic' brands in other countries). For vegans especially, they have fridges full of soya and grain-based yogurts and milks, lots of vegan spreads (a whole aisle) and antipasti, salads, and other prepared foods. They have a huge beverages, alcohol and sweet/chocolate sections, if that is of interest. Furthermore, they carry a great deal of Ayurvedic and macrobiotic specialities, as this is currently quite popular in Germany. I also love the whole wall of different, high-quality teas! The fresh produce, which includes a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, is also good.

Upstairs, they have a large selection of organic bath and body products, some herbal/natural remedies, a natural fibre clothing section, cleaning products, and a children's section. Basic Bio has it all!

Pros: Great Selection, High-Quality Products, Wide Variety

Note the double listing as they have a Bistro - Edit

This is a huge place, two levels. The confusing part is that (at least this is my understanding) you need to check out separately food below and personal care items above. Don't miss the clearly labeled vegan items in the bakery! If you need to make a stop at a natural health food store in Munich this is the one! IMPRESSIVE!

Pros: vegan food!, bistro

Big chain of supermarket. Downstairs: ALL kinds of organic foods, with own bakery, juice bar. Fair selection of Macrobiotic and Ayurveda products. Upstairs: cafeteria, cosmetics, clothers, infants stuff. Has elevator.

Pros: Big selection , Own Bakery, Upstairs cafeteria

Cons: Very crowded on Weekends, Not cheap
