Well stocked with vegan things - Edit

Shop is well stocked with the usual vegan stuff. There were a few things in the fridge that were very out of date I noticed.

a one-stop-shop for all your vegan specialty items - Edit

I go here once a month to buy a 10-kg sack of vegan dog food. Despite being a small store (just one room), the price of the dog food and of many other items are lower than in other health-food or organic shops such as Veritas. Unfortunately, organic, vegan, and health foods are very expensive in Spain as the associated lifestyles have a lesser following than in, say, the UK or Northern Europe, and demand is quite small. This also means many of the products in this shop are imported (as they are in other similar shops in Barcelona), and therefore more expensive than those at a regular supermarket.

The owner of Veganoteca doesnt just import foreign goods, though - he is dedicated to spreading the cause locally. For example, he reached out to a local (conventional) baking company and showed them how to use an apple glaze instead of gelatin to make delicious & totally conventional-looking croissants, which he then sold in his store (to my great joy). He also sells merchandise for local animal rights organizations, and activists use the shop's back room for some of their activities.


Besides being super grateful for all that the owner does for veganism in Barcelona, the products are well-priced, given the situation, and extremely delicious. Worth a visit each and every time you're in the neighborhood!

Pros: wide variety of vegan specialty items, vegan baked goods!!!!1!!, owner is super friendly

Cons: there is only one of it, not open 24 hours a day, not next to my house

Super Vegano - Edit

Amazing 100% vegan store packed with meats, cheeses, ice-creams, soya & tofu products from the Redwoods and other well known ranges. Also sells t-shirts &  bags, confectionary and a small selection of pastries. Definitely worth a pop.

Pros: Food range, Packed fridge

Cons: Can be expensive

Small but perfectly formed - Edit

Veganoteca is a completely vegan shop that sells all sorts of speciality vegan items. They have two very densely-packed fridges full of vegan meats and cheeses, including Vegusto, Redwoods, Wheaty, Tofutti and more. The freezer also has meats and ice-creams and the shelves are full of everything from vegan chocolate to mayonaise. They even have a little bakery case where you can get doughnuts and croissants. The people working there are always very nice too. Not far from Plaça Universidad metro station, so is pretty central.

Pros: Great selection, Central, Nice staff

A treat to visit - Edit

This shop sold a wide variety of items from the usual suspects (museli, tofu and dairy-free milks) to vegan doughnuts, and even frozen vegan prawns and tuna! I left the shop with many many treats including: chocolate filled snack bars, magdalenas (plain muffins), chocolate muffins, and two doughnuts (a plain one and a chocolate covered one - I just couldn't choose between them!). And best of all, everything in the shop was vegan, so no need to worry about ingredients written in Spanish! Or that the shop owner wasn't 100% certain what I was asking in English! I see that someone has said that it was quite expensive - I'd say that the prices were the same as I would expect to find at home in Ireland, though many of these products would not be available to me at home in Ireland.

Pros: All vegan!, Sold doughnuts and muffins!, Great selection of vegan goods.

Small, cute, overall good - Edit

This shop is definitely a score for vegans in Barcelona, if only for the fact that you can be assured the products don't contain animals or any of their business. Besides that, it has a large selection of imitation meat/cheese/ice cream etc. products, as well as some other hippy-ish foods that vegans love but spaniards dont. Again, it's quite small, and it mainly is just a place to get specialty vegan items; ie. you can't do all your grocery shopping there. Overall, though, I was really pleased to find this store and I know I'll be returning when I need some veg spanish ham.

Pros: alllllll vegan, friendly, tons of nonveg food imitators

Cons: rather small, a bit expensive
