Britta Saved Us! - Edit

Two vegetarians (almost vegan... we keep chickens so we eat eggs) go to Italy.... With all the pasta, and cheese, and meaty sauces, you can see where this is going. My husband is gluten intolerant, so that added to the difficulty of eating in Italy. After about a week in Italy, we stumbled upon Britta. OMG, it was soooooo wonderful to have a fresh pressed juice, vegan bean salad, vegan potato salad, and yummy vegan sandwiches. We were in the Cinque Terre for a total of 24 hours after we found Britta, and we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there. We even ordered extra smoothies and lunches to-go on the train for our trek to Florence. It was much needed!

Valentina, the lovely owner of this establishment, is such a great person. It was like speaking to a friend I've known for years. So friendly! She even walked across the street to translate for me at the doctor's office when I woke up with a swollen eye (I must have had an allergic reaction to something in the ocean - it was much better after some claritin).

If you are in the Cinque Terre, in any of the 5 villages, do yourself a favor and hop on the short train ride to go visit Britta. It's well worth it. I didn't even stay in Riomaggore - I was in Vernazza. The food is so tasty and it will give you a wonderful respite from trying to find the vegan option on the menu wherever else you go.

When I return to Italy's Cinque Terre, I know where to eat. I hope to be back soon!

Pros: Excellent Food, Great Service, Healthy Options

Delightfully Fresh and Quirky :) - Edit

You know when someone puts their heart and soul into something, because it shows and people love what other people are passionate about. Britta is definitely that for me-- both in quality of fresh smoothies and food, and most importantly the owner who breathes life into the shop.

Stumbling upon this smoothie shop & eatery was a true blessing. I was overjoyed to find in the midst of lots of unhealthy food options that overwhelm tourists, there was something that was made fresh, tasted good, and made my body feel good. But most importantly the owner who is there all day serving, is an absolute sweet heart, and she takes an active interest to all who walk in her door. You matter, and it shows in the quality of food and service presented to you.

My partner and I were in Riomaggoire for a week and we came every day to get something, sometimes more than once even if just to say hi to the owner, who is always ecstatic to see you :)

In the long short of it, you go in looking for healthy, vegan friendly options, and you walk out feeling fulfilled on many levels... and go back for more of Valentina's sweet and quirky charm, and her delicious smoothies and food.

Pros: Fresh yummy ingredients , Warm gregarious host/owner

Fantastic Vegan Take Away - Edit

We are vegan and we were looking for a place for lunch in the town of Riomaggiore, one of the 5 villages in the Cinque Terre, Italy. We checked the Happy Cow app and 300 feet away was Britta Take Away, a fantastic vegan place with lots of choices (burgers, salads, vegetables, smoothies, etc.) The food was delicious but best of all, we enjoyed talking with the owner. She spoke excellent English and was very friendly!

Good selection - Edit

For a shop this size, the selection was quite big. They had salads (bulgur, couscous, greens, beans), burgers and paninis as well as smoothies etc.

I had the vegan "chicken" burger with mayo and it was delicious. I would've liked more salad fillings, but other than that I was quite happy with what I got, considering it was quite late (7.30pm) when I got there.

Pros: Good number of choices, Lovely owner
