Good snack

The sandwich „Vegano“ is a good snack for the bigger hunger in between.

Good for a breakfast snack

Only had the croissant which I thought was good. It has apricot jam in. Also offer soya milk which was good in a cappuccino.

Cons: Not a lot of vegan options

Croissants are okay, sandwich is insulting

I was happy to have an option. My boyfriend and I were on our way to catch a train to the beach and decided to grab some food. I didn't expect much from the vegano sandwich (despite it costing €5) but this was honestly insulting. The bread and tomatoes inside were nice as all bread and tomatoes are in Italy but the rest was absolutely gross. Its really not that hard to make a vegan sandwich. Alot of Italy side dishes and antipasti are already accidentally vegan, surely a sandwich comprising of some of these items would be cheaper and easier to make? The croissants were fine but they were obviously just the same ones we had bought in the supermarket the day before (obviously at 5 times the supermarket price) . Soft drinks way over priced at €3 for a small bottle. I understand convenience foods cost a little more and was happy to pay but really didn't expect such a disappointing meal here.

Pros: Nice to have a vegan croissant option

Cons: Expensive, gross, not happy at all.

widely available and okay

This chain is pretty much everywhere, so there's at least this if you're unsure about vegan options anywhere else. I had the croissant and a vegan cappuccino. Both were okay, what you'd expect from a chain bakery. I was interested in the carrot cake but that one is very small, more like a small muffin than a piece of cake.

A combo vegan! Perfect!

A public place with lots of people coming and going, and we found good vegan options, as a combo with coffee, croissant and orange juice for €2,9? Congratulations, almost perfect. Just in the way to get all stars to heaven

Pros: And an incredible vegan sandwiche

Cons: Fair price

Great Place

This was a great place to grab some lunch. We had the Vegano Panini’s, an apricot croissant and a carrot cake. I would give five stars as the food was excellent but you cannot unless the place is fully vegan or veggie. Space to eat in out the back too and a very convenient location.

Good option!

Tired of the veggie sandwiches from most places including tuna, egg or cheese, this vegan sandwich was a great discovery !! With whole or seeds bread, tomato, aubergines, arugula and a very rich tomato cream for € 4.50. I can not wait to go back and try the coffee with Soya Milk and the vegan desserts (croissant and carrot muffin).

Pros: Good price and size, Location

Cons: Few vegan options

good, quick place

I went there before I had to take a train from the station. The place was full of people, but I got to order very quickly. There were a lot of vegan croissants, but as they were with apricots, which I don‘r really like, I chose the vegan panini. It was good. They warmed it up for me which was very nice. The panini has darker bread, with seeds on top and inside the sandwich. As for vegetables, the panini had eggplant, zucchini, lettuce, artichoke?, and something I forgot, on it. It was fairly big. I found the prices ok: 1.30€ for the cappuccino, 1.70€ for the croissant and 4.50€ for the panini.
It‘s not a cosy place, but still nice if you‘re hubgry and at or close to the station.

it's crap don't go there

They're always out of croissants and their sandwich makes me want to cry. Bad bad bad! Go to veg and veg instead, it's also inside the train station and has lots of vegan options which are way better.

Pros: none

Cons: crap food, out of crap food, expensive

Good grab and go

If you're catching your train into/out of Rome or heading to the metro for a big day this is a good stop for a quick Italian breakfast or sandwich to go. The croissant with apricot jam and a vegan capacino makes for a decent Italian breakfast. There is also a vegan carrot cake and a vegan sandwich all at a decent price for grabbing on the go.

Nice Idea: vegan sandwich availbale

Are you on late for your train?
Are you hungry but you're vegan!
Just stop!
You will find a very good sandwich available: "il vegano".
just bread and vegetables. No cheese, no mozzarella!

Pros: good, fast
