First Review by Julievida

Very limited vegan options - Edit

As a shop, this place is fine and sells things like soymilk which may be hard to find elsewhere. As a cafe, the options for vegans are almost non-existant. They have soy burgers and readymade soy sandwiches, but neither are vegan as the bread has an egg wash and the sandwiches contain mayonnaise. None of the other pastries are vegan as far as I could tell.

Lots of stuff a gringo veggie would look for - Edit

Like another reviewer said, the selection is small, but there are still a surprising amount of things that can be hard to find in Mexico, such as coco oil, sriracha, Asian foods such as sushi paper, fresh ground peanut butter, and my personal score, SOYRIZO!

Prices are pretty high, as one might expect for niche imported goods. The premade sandwiches and stuff aren't much to write home about though.

They have another, smaller store on the main street close to the entrance to Plaza San Fernando.

Pros: Soyrizo!, Fresh PB, Coconut oil

Cons: Price, Prepared food could be better

Tofu and vegan drinks, nothing more - Edit

The place is indeed quite small, so as the choice. I was glad to buy some coco milk, also saw tofu there. The rest of the things seemed to be vegetarian. Later I found much bigger natural health food store in Guanajuato, nearby they even sell vegan ice-cream, but its not in the listings, so I cant review it.

Pros: vegan options

Cons: small

YamiliLaraMartinez 09 Apr 2015 - @VikaVegan - I plan to go to GTO at the end of the month. Can you please share the name of the other larger vegan friendly local you mentioned finding?
