Vegan lunch at cozy Café Saarein!

Of course I like to support 100% vegan places. Owned by fellow vegans, my kind of people. But what I just love love is when traditional places start to offer vegan options as well. One of those places is Café Saarein, which is offering vegan lunch every Saturday, already since quite a while. Saarein has the looks of a typical traditional Jordaan café. However it has a big (non-typical) history as it started out as a ‘women-only’ café – a lesbian bar. That was in 1978, nowadays everyone is welcome though it still proudly carries that identity.

Vegan Amsterdam Festival 2018 – the photos

Whooo like a week ago we organised our own vegan festival at OT301! We aimed to organise a festival offering not just vegan delicacies but also food for thought and cultural stuff. Showing the diverse ways in which people are engaged with veganism.

So we had lectures about vegan advocacy, spoken word with lyrics written for the occasion, bands playing, food and animal rights stalls and much more! It was a beautiful sunny day and hundreds of people visited – great that so many people in Amsterdam are interested in veganism these days! See you next time perhaps! Click here to see the photos.

Vegan pie everywhere!

While there used to be only a handful of places (restaurants) which would offer it, these days it seems like no new cool coffeeplace can do without offering some vegan sweet stuff. Great! This is a list of all places which are currently offering vegan pie. And we’re talking ’bout the real stuff, no ‘raw energy balls’ or granola bars, please!  Read more
