Delicious food and even better staff! - Edit

Small takeaway shop with a HUGE menu! Had a burger which was absolutely delicious, the staff were so so friendly and helped to translate the menu into English. They even gave me a free vegan croissant! And they take card :) 10/10

Tasty, friendly, and wonderful! - Edit

This friendly little cafe and shop is a very welcome addition to the food scene in Lugano, offering some of the tastiest food we've had anywhere in Ticino. There's plenty of variety so there should be something to please everyone.

Service was warm and very helpful, and there's a convivial atmosphere, with one small table in the center where guests can eat while standing (there's also the lakeshore just two blocks away, so getting take-out for a picnic by the lake is also an option).

Don't miss the pastries and desserts, and their excellent soy cappuccino.

Enjoy!

Take Away - Edit

Great concept for 100% vegan fast food in a central location, seems to be a family business which is also always a pleasure to see. The amount of choice of different pizzas and focaccias is amazing, the long menu has so many options that will leave non-vegans without any possible complaint, definitely finding something they like! And for vegans...well so many choices you want to try it all! After a pizza or sandwich try their tiramisu

Pros: All Vegan Fast Food, Plenty of options

Cons: Only one location? :)

Confirming other reviews, - Edit

This place is making VERY good use of a small space, has an AMAZING variety of Pizzas (they are not of the Italian super thin, crispy kind though but thick whole wheat pieces (5€ each - need to eat 2-3) and generously covered and provide a rich juicy mouth feel). Apart from that they feature a wide selection of vegan bakery, home made pralines and cookies as well as vegan foods to buy from cookies to soy steaks, plant milk, meat alternatives and drinks

Pros: cozy , quick service, stylish with nice music

Cons: you are in Switzerland (more pricy)

Best Vegan place in the area - Edit

Being based in the area, I have the pleasure to visit Natural Food quite often. They offer an abundant selection of pizzas, kebap, piadinas, and all sorts of sandwiches. Everything I tried so far tastes wonderfully! Along with their freshly made food, this nice take-away also occasionally offers desserts (tiramisù was great) and a local organic home-made beer.
At the counter there's often informative flyers and support material.
The staff is very friendly, too. Kudos!

Pros: Delicious, Centrally located

Cons: Take-away only, Closed on Sundays

Tasty deliciousness on the go - Edit

I had just arrived in Lugano and a friendly vegan at the tourist office pointed me in the direction of this place. I had a focaccia sandwich with some vegan meat substitutes - really tasty. Could have had another I reckon. Friendly staff. I'd happily pop in for a quick bite again.

Pros: Quick tasty food, Friendly

Best pizza in town - Edit

I am vegan, my husband vegetarian, my son eats everything, and we all absolutely loved what we got! We had various pizzas, kebab, two cakes (chocolate roll and a cake with cinnamon and candid fruit), as well as vegan panetone. We absolutely loved it all, tasty, rich and digestable! I think I never enjoyed a pizza so much even when I used to eat everything. We even found they often use natural raising methods (without beer yeast) which my husband is allergic to. We also appreciated the vegan wine and the literature available on vegan food and diet, as well as all the vegan products on sale. Prices absolutely reasonable, not more expensive then any other place. The staff is extremely nice and available foe any question, there is definitely a positive and loving energy created by motivated and sincere people. It would be nice to have some tables outside in summer. Hope this place will have good success and keep going for many years to come!

Pros: great food, great staff, great prices

Cons: no seating

lots of choices, all vegan! - Edit

Finally a place where you don't have to be afraid to accidentally order something with cheese or milk.. There is such a wide variety of pizza, sandwiches, pancakes,........ Even several glutenfree options. Prices are really fair and you get a lot. The pizza slices are thick, but not dry at all. And it was delicious! Most of them are with vegan mozzarella. I also had a piadina today, and it was fantastic!! We went with our omnivore friends, and they liked everything, too.
The place is rather small and there are no tables, so it's purely take out. But the service is quick and very friendly. You can see how they prepare everything. If I lived in Lugano I'd eat there all the time!!

Pros: only vegan food!, many choices, delicious!

Cons: where to go when it rains? (only take out)

Delicious vegan fast food - Edit

My husband and I love the food at this place. The owners are friendly and welcoming. We would go often, but we do not live in Lugano. When we do go to Lugano, this place is usually closed. So far the Indian pizza is my favorite. The piodine are delicious. The best sandwich is the mushroom veggie burger. I devoured it!!! The perfect addition would be if they offered fries. I love fries with my fast food, but unfortunately, they do not offer any. The main problem with this place is that it is take out only. So if you want a place to relax and enjoy a meal, you better take it home. The only place we found anywhere nearby was McDonald's to sit. We sat at their tables and saw all the corpse munchers eating. If this place had a few tables out side or a bench or something, that would be better.

Simply wonderful - Edit

We have just been there today and we have been deeply impressed by the wide choice of vegan pizzas, focaccias, and sandwiches, with savoury cold cuts, wonderful vegan cheese, veggies and yummy sauces. You can choose among a selection of 30+ pizzas, and several other fast food choices. We had the Mountain Panino, with smoked vegan ham, cheese, salad, mushrooms and mayo, and the Panino Lugano, with vegan salami, cheese, lettuce and mayo. To drink we just had mineral water, but you can choose from several organic drinks like Swiss hemp beer, fruit juices, German cola and rice and coconut milk. You can also find vegan whipped cream and white chocolate to buy. They also deliver all over Lugano with their electric bike.

Pros: wide choice of vegan fast food, yummy, friendly staff

Cons: no seating , very small
