First Review by Stevie

A godsend - Edit

Not sure what we'd do in Edinburgh without Real Foods. Good selection of Veggie meats with stuff you won't get in supermarkets. The best thing however is that they have just started to stock Tofurkey products!
Updated from previous review on Monday February 22, 2016

Pros: Best selection of vegetarian 'meats' , Lots of other organic produce and health foods , Tofurkey!

Cons: Expensive - a few items can be the equivalent of h

Good selection of speciality items - Edit

I'm not sure why, but they don't stock Alpro almond milk, which you can get in places like Tesco. One of the few places that you can find specific items like Violife, Vegusto, or Tofutti in Edinburgh, and this place has the best range of each brand.

A bit on the pricey side, but good for a treat, especially with so much choice! Also they have a 5% (I think?) student discount if you show a student card.

Lots of vegan staples - Edit

This is the best natural foods market we found in Edinburgh. We got many of our staples there: Oatley cream, cocoa powder, etc. However, the puff pastry was actually not vegan (though it is at the regular stores) and the ready made fridge food was dry and boring. We will definitely go back to stock up on vegan specialty items.

Pros: Good range of products

Cons: Boring ready-made food

Friendly shop - Edit

This shop has a lot to offer and a wide range of products. The staff is very helpful, which I needed because it is a bit chaotic and I had troubles to find what I was looking for. However, they have so many things to offer that I can find something I've never tried before every time I go there, and temptation to buy and try all these things is huge.
Check out their chocolates, they have many yummy vegan choices :)

Pros: Product range, Friendly Staff, Location

Cons: A little bit chaotic

Best shop for veggies - Edit

This place is excellent with a big range of options for vegans to try and stock up on. Real Foods is one of the big things I'll miss about not living in Edinburgh anymore.

They have a slighly complicated discount system for students, (5% off some goods but not goods already discontented) which the staff have on a few occassions miscalculated.

Pros: Range of options, friendly staff

Cons: Miscalculating discounts

My favourite food shop in Edinburgh! - Edit

I go here very often to do my food shopping because they have such an amazing range of vegan produce, especially the amazing Sojade fruit yoghurts and vegan ice creams as well as vegan chocolate of all shades! Many of their products are slightly on the pricey side but it's all very good quality and delicious.

Pros: Great vegan selection, Good quality

Best Vegan/Veggie Products Shop in Scotland - Edit

Slightly bigger than their other store in Brougham Street, but that's good too. Amazing choice, helpful staff. Can't fault it.

Well stocked natural store, many nooks and crannie - Edit

At first glimpse it doesn't seem like a lot, but then you find a few pockets and realize this is a well stocked natural food's store. Really well located, too! I can't imagine you won't find what you are looking for or close to it here!

Extremely well stocked - Edit

Some great products here tightly packed in what is quite a large shop. Prices can be steep, unless you can find some special offers but I suppose that's how it is with independent shops. I cannot fault the huge range of foods and toiletries etc, there are things I have never seen before available here. Some of the organic vegetables look a bit ropey but they come straight from the earth and I'm sure they'd be fine if prepared on the day of purchase. Over all, a nice shop in a cool part of the city.

Pros: range, location

Cons: price

Real Foods, Edinburgh - Edit

Good choice health food shop at the top of Broughton St in Central Edinburgh. Open 7 days a week. Staff were helpful and pleasant enough. Plenty for vegan veggies.

Pros: Good choice / Very vegan veggie friendly, central, Open 7 days
