First Review by Amy1274

Vegan sandwiches - Edit

This little shops is placed inside the train station. They sells almost everything, but mostly health produces, and between them, some vegan sandwiches, and even one vegan cake (although the last one was not very good). You can also pick a energy or protein bar. Very helpful when you are in the rush.

Pros: Location, Vegan options

Cons: Quite expensive

Nice to get some vegan sandwiches or snacks - Edit

We used the shop to get some vegan sandwiches. They have a small choice of vegan sandwiches but they also have some with gluten free bread.

They also have plant drinks, some organic and/or vegan cakes and cookies, nuts and dried fruit. It is a bit expensive but it's a good location if you want something vegan to eat if you are travelling.

Pros: Central location

Cons: Expensive

Refresh - Edit

Really great place to grab some quick vegan food, sandwiches, baguettes, sweets, plant milks, spreads, pastries etc. Your tummy will be happy, just your wallet could cry a little.

Pros: Location, Opening hours

Cons: Prices

good for picking up vegan lunches / snacks - Edit

I found this shop really useful - it's a little expensive, but not especially so compared to places I might shop in the UK, and it's well located in the train station, on a corner near one of the big arrivals boards. I thought it had a good range of vegan foods for what is quite a small shop - I got chocolate milk, a sandwich, some pate, and small things that I could eat in my hostel room. The ingredients on the sandwich were all listed in Czech, that's true, but I didn't find that surprising. They seem to mark allergens in bold, as in other EU countries, which makes skim reading easy enough even in another language.

Expensive veg-friendly shop - Edit

They have a nice selection of foods (if you consider it's Prague) but unfortunatelly the prices are really high (sometimes 3 times more expensive items than elsewhere). But if you happen to wait for your train here, you'll be glad it's here.

Pros: Some nice vegan options

Cons: Expensive, Some options only at certain times of day

Not friendly to tourists or visitors, nor vegans - Edit

Avoid this place. The staff here does not speak English , and all the products are labelled only in the Czech language. Meat products are mixed in with Vegan products, and the selection is very poor. I accidentally bought some revolting meat pate [which was located in a shelf of apparently vegan products] which gave me severe indigestion. also they do not help in bagging purchases at the checkout. generally unhelpful and terrible customer service. Avoid this place.

Limited Prepared Foods But Good Store - Edit

A great store, but if like me you were hoping to pick up some prepared foods for a train ride, the options are limited. It seems geared more towards the commuter who may be picking up groceries on the way home, spices, flours, raw materials for cooking. That said, I did find some snacks for the train, but no vegan salads or sandwiches as you might hope. There were some veggie prepared foods.

Convenient for lunch on the go - Edit

This is a really useful shop for grabbing lunch to take on a train journey or for a picnic - there's a good selection of prepackaged vegan baguettes and cakes, as well as fresh and dried fruit and nuts. You can also buy things for cooking such as dried risotto mixes, cous cous, polenta and miso, but much of the tofu needs refridgeration, so can't be transported too far. It's worth noting that this isn't a completely vegetarian shop, so if you can't read Czech, a writing down a list of useful words or taking a dictionary to translate ingredients on packets might be a good idea. The main downside of this shop is that the staff are rather unfriendly and unhelpful.

Pros: Location, Choice

Cons: Unhelpful staff
