Amazing shop for all your vegan needs! - Edit

Although not very large in size, which was slightly annoying as it was always busy; this shop is amazing! Has a massive range of vegan products, fresh, frozen, packaged. They had vegan ice cream and cheese!! The staff there the times that I was, were friendly and helpful :) Some things were a good price, some were a little expensive, but you get that anywhere! I treated myself to a vegan 'Magnum' equivalent ice cream, and it was so good! Gutted you can't get them in the UK. Will be sad to not have this shop up the road from me when I return home.

Pros: Great range of vegan products

Cons: Shop itself is a bit small in size

Rude staff but so much good food! - Edit

Really hard place to judge. There's such a large amount of great food to find here, the prices are great. BUT the staff seems completely uninterested in what they are selling, the become almost agitated when you ask what's vegan and not and they have really low english skills. Plus that they treat almost every customer like a criminal, following you around the store staring like your are a common thief. Shame. Hopefully the will one day hire staff that's as good as their wares.

Big bio market - Edit

A bio shop with a big assortment. We found a lot of stuff we've never seen in Switzerland like oat syrup or hemp flour.
Unfortunately they also sell meat which is kind of inconvenient if everything is written in Hungarian.
They also have raw crackers, desserts and vegan foods like fried cheese but we recommend going to Le Bar right next door as it wasn't very special.

Pros: Big assortment, Not too expensive

Cons: Food behind the counter

Very good vegan and organic selection - Edit

Bio ABC is very well stocked with vegan and organic items. Of particular interest to travelers are numerous local pastries, desserts, and such, though if you don't speak Hungarian vegans might need to ask someone to help translate the ingredient lists to be sure which items are vegan.

Note that they make their own grain-based "meats," but they also sell animal meat, so shop carefully!

Pros: local vegan pastries, good selection of vegan and organic item

Cons: Sells meat

Nice little shop - Edit

Had a nice choice of health foods. We seemed to find everything we needed. A lot of the ingredients were listed in Hungarian, although one of the assitance spoke a little English and was able to help, even getting out a huge dictionary to find a word that she didn't know.

One of the other assistants wasn't particularly friendly (although that often seemed to be the norm in Hungary, so I am not surprised).

Pros: Great to find vegan stuff, resonable selection, One assistant spoke English and helpful

Cons: Not all staff are exactly welcoming

Well stocked health food store - Edit

The store is located next door to the vegan cafe, Le Bar. There seemed to be the usual assortment of packaged foods one finds in health food shops together with some organic veg. They also sell various cakes. The assistant spoke a little English and we showed her the "Vegan Passport" explaining what we done't eat and she confirmed that a number of the cakes were suitable for vegans.
Not sure whether the food in the chiller section was all vegetarian as not able to translate the labels.

Pros: vegan cakes, next to vegan cafe
