First Review by Stevie

Viva Laietana - Edit

Great location just off Jaume I Metro in a really nice part of town just round the corner from Cat Bar, which is how we found it by chance. As has already been documented this place sells typical vegan and vegetarian produce as well as toiletries and cleaning products. The range of faux meats is superb perfect for making sandwiches back at the hotel with which is exactly what we do. Many locations on Barcelona, seek them out and visit.

Good variety of products - Edit

This is a non-veg store, but it offers a very good range of healthy and vegan food, they have probably everything you need for a normal week in Barcelona.

everything you need - Edit

They gave pretty much everything you need to survive.
Sweets, tofu, saitan, milks, etc.

Unfortunately the staff speaks almost no English at all.

Almond cheese :P - Edit

I've spent a lot of money during my only visit to Veritas. I think a lot of products are overpriced.
I liked the grated almond cheese (doesn't melt though) from Veritas on my sandwiches (buns from an ordinary supermarket, avocado, almond cheese, - that's it).
Go get it :)
They also have a good range of fake meats and not expensive rice milk (delish!).
Also try a starchy dessert in small bags (dilute with plant based milk), they offer a nice variety.

Health Food Store - Edit


Sells peanut butter, which thrilled my husband who eats it every day.
Large selection of toiletries, so great if you need vegan shampoo, toothpaste, want organic loo roll and so on.
Huge selection of seitan products, also tofu and some tasty vegan empanadas and nice vegan margerine.
Not cheap, but show me a organic supermarket that is.


Pros: well laid out

Cons: bit pricey

Organic supermarket - Edit

This supermarket is relatively small and I found that it did not have a wide variety of health food products. However, one can find alternative milks such as rice, oat, and soy. I did not see any almond milks. The fruit is very expensive, and you would be better off buying fruit and veggies at the many local markets around Barcelona.

Pros: location, alternative milks

Cons: small variety, cost

No taste - Edit

The ravioli bolet was absolutely tasteless. And 1 Euro for a small piece of bread. I was so disappointed - this was a wasted eating opportunity in a city with so many nice places for veggie food.

Pros: very pleasant staff, light, airy room

Cons: comparatively expensive, can get better value
