Great shop with a lovely cafe attached😁

I like this shop a lot, although I have to stop myself going in to often because it is very pricey. There’s some really cool things on offer so I’d recommend a look around.
Been to the cafe/restaurant attached once and had a really nice breakfast😄

Cute place

The shop is super well stocked and great and the cafe is nice too, however, I expected there to be more vegan cakes. Unfortunately they also don't sell iced lattes.

Love this shop

Great range of options including many reasonably priced eco-friendly cosmetics. The counter foods always look really tasty too.

One of the best shops in Glasgow: They offer a wide range of organic foods (fresh veggies, grains, artisan breads, legumes, etc.) and all kinds of goods useful when cooking vegan at home. They also offer some freshly prepared salads and snacks, all of which look delicious.

Prices are on the higher side, but the selection is also very different (better!) than the one in supermarkets.

Pros: Great food, Freshly prepared salads and snacks

Cons: A bit pricey

West-End Deli

This is a great deli in the West End of Glasgow and you will find nearly everything you could possibly want here including cheeses, desserts, chocolate, vitamins, cakes, a salad bar and breads, to name just a few. We popped in for breakfast and ordered the daal and the aubergine, cheese roasted veg panini plus drinks. The daal was amazing and one of the best I have had for a while, as was the panini particularly the vegan cheese. Both had so much flavour. A great start to the day. In total we spend about £20. We will definitely be back.

Pros: Excellent tasty vegan dishes, Choice, Nice staff

Cons: Serves meat

Great indie food store

I did a weekend family shop when I was in Glasgow for the weekend and was really impressed. All the basics (including fresh fruits and vegetables) and interesting deli treats.

The store itself feels like a indie store from the early 90's...an Aladdin's cave made of untreated pine.

Cons: Not the place to do a bargain shop, but not too OT

Glasgow institution

I first visited root & fruits in the early 1990s, and became a regular haunt in the as i lived around the corner in bank st.

A great option, organic, and vegetarian/vegan heaven.

A must for those living in the wild west, a good choice for those having a day out gunslinging.

Good lunch

I came here when my usual lunch place had nothing vegan on the menu last weekend, and had a fairly nice vegan thai wrap. They have a wide range of vegan produce on sale in the shop, but I was disappointed to see meat on sale, which slightly put me off my lunch.

Pros: Reasonably priced, Vegan light options

Cons: Sells meat

wonderful to have nearby

RFF was down the street from our hotel during our stay in Glasgow and we went everyday. Great bread from local bakeries, a good produce section, and a nice deli. Chairs outside if you wanted to get a sandwich and coffee and eat there, but we usually walked to the Botanic gardens after and picnicked there. A good selection. You can buy vegetarian haggis there, which was a nice souvenir.

A Great West-ern deli and store

The deli in the shop sells lovely hand made products; all are labelled as to whether they are vegetarian or vegan or contain any nuts etc. They take away coffee is particularly nice too.

The shop is really good for local products, Tapa bread is sold, and if you're after Tchai Ovna tea they also have that (both of these companies are Happy Cow listed).

If you are vegetarian, there is a good cheese range (again many local kinds such as Arran cheeses, Scottish brie etc) and local dairy products. They also stock vegan cheese, as well as EngineShed tofu (from Edinburgh).

There is a small organic meat and fish section.

There is a separate shop for flowers, and a separate shop for fruit and veg. There are some organic and local fruit and veg options.

If you are visiting Glasgow and walking along the kelvin way, take a detour up the steps past Big Blue cafe/ bar and go up to Great Western Road to this shop for picnic supplies!

Pros: Local produce, Organic range, Good selection

Cons: Sells meat (small organic selection)
