Homely health food store - Edit

Small Health food store right in the centre of Belfast. Contains a small deli counter, toiletries, Vegan dry & canned food, gluten free stuff, snacks, alternative cleaning and laundry products, etc. Really packed in but there is a good selection. The only survivng non Holland & Barrett in Belfast I think (these are in Castlecourt & Ann street).

Pros: Good selection, Decent price

Cons: Smaller vitamin range

I love it - Edit

I go to Nutmeg every week, if you look long enough, you can find pretty much anything in there, some things are a bit hidden. They have a fridge and freezer which is quite handy as well. I love their vegan pestos, their self-made vegan sausage rolls, the coconut milk yoghurt and the vegan cream cheese.
They also have sandwiches and cakes there now, they are awesome!

Pros: big range, very nice and helpful staff

Cons: some things are hard to find

A Belfast Vegan Must - Edit

The nutmeg has long been a staple for vegetarians and vegans in Belfast, carrying established brands such as Suma and Frys. Perfect for keeping your kitchen cupboards and medicine cabinet stocked, they now also serve vegan sandwiches if you're ever stuck for lunch! The chilled cabinets are full of everything imaginable from sosage rolls to peanut butter slices, and if you're lucky they occasionally stock DONUTS. They carry Violife, Follow Your Heart and all those ridiculously expensive vegan chocolate treats you could never bring yourself to buy online but cannot resist in person...

Pros: Wide variety, Fresh vegan lunch items, Amenable to customer requests

Brilliant shop - Edit

The Nutmeg's a brilliant shop stocking a huge range of vitamin supplements and food. It's a tiny store packed full of healthy items you won't get from your local supermarket. I particularly like their range of dairy free cheeses, vegetarian/vegan foods and nuts, pulses and seeds.

They do snacks & lunch! - Edit

The write up for the shop suggests that it's only a health food store, but they also have desserts, salads and sammiges. Hell yes. I'm currently fighting with my will-power not to return and buy out all of their homemade vegan chocchip cookies. Holy cow!

Pros: One stop shop for malk, meet and other substitutio, Lovely staff

Cons: More salads plleeeeeease Belfast!

Now doing sanwiches - Edit

I love the friendliness of the shop but lunchtime offerings were always delicious but sparse. Not anymore as they now do a really varied selection of sandwiches, baguettes, bagels, gf sandwiches and salads along with the normal sausage rolls and samosas. Try the roasted sprout and falafel (no I'm not joking, it really is a thing) or the scrambled 'egg' and 'bacon' baguette- all totally vegan!

Pros: Huge range of vegan takeaway lunches, Regularly made so they're always fresh, Unique product

Cons: Sells out quickly

Not the place it used to be! - Edit

I used to always be able to count on The Nutmeg as my local organic vegan friendly shop however even Holland & Barrett have started to look healthier. I struggle to find more than one can of their organic coconut water which in my eyes is bad. I know they are a small store but I would have expected this store rather than Holland & Barrett to have it first! I can't even find Organic dried mangoes which is disappointing however they do the amazing Cliff Bars which gives them a point but have they just become the local vegan junk food retailer? It's better than being non-vegan but it's not optimal health.

The staff are friendly and always ready to help you when you ask and the store itself is perfectly located right smack bang in the city center which makes it very accessible

Pros: Friendly Staff, Good prices

Cons: Options have limited in recent times

The Nutmeg - Edit

This is a good wee shop and has looked after me for many years when vege food and snacks were limited. They are a friendly knowedgeable lot. They stock natural remedies, foods, teas, sweeties, and so on. I tend to get their "sausage" rolls, pakora and flapjacks.

Pros: choice , knowledge

Cons: small

Great things in a small place! - Edit

This is about the only vegan friendly place within walking distance from the town center. Its a small health food shop, but there is a tiny deli counter as you walk in on your right and its filled with vegan pastys, burritos, vegan sausage rolls, cakes, etc. For the size of the space they really pack a bunch of good stuff in there!

Pros: vegan pastry items

Cons: small
