Lombardia, since 1972. What started as the first natural food shop in Antwerp, by Alain’s mother Odette, is now a well known place for a healthy lunch. And by healthy I mean GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN, VEGETARIAN, WHEAT FREE with ORGANIC ingredients and they do serve chicken and tuna as well so don’t think this is a typical green/bio place with pale peoples on goat’s wool socks. LOMBARDIA is the most colorful place and attracts people from all over the world. International stars as Sting and Moby  are known to be huge fans of Lombardia and also the local stars can be spotted here quit often. You can sit there and blend into the funky decor so easily nobody will even notice you…colors, snorting pigs, large printed Facebook status from friends&celebs, or tweets as exhibited here, pictures, large animals floating around… It has the allure of a place in Sunny LA or New York! I Love it!!
I do spend quit some time here having lunch with friends or a little snack around 4, specially when the sun is out and you can sit on one of the best terraces of Antwerp. LOMBARDIA is located in the city center in one of the nicer shopping areas known as “De Wilde Zee“.
My regulars/favorites are:
– Moby Juice : Organic juice with spinach & apple
– GF Curry BeastieBoy sandwich : chicken sandwich, vegan cheese, greens and the magical white sauce
– Mokka Totall : Vegan Ice Cream, coffee, vegan *whipped cream
Vegan Cappuccino : Coffee with vegan *whipped cream
*about that vegan whipped cream : It’s made from rice and soy and is sooo tasty!! I got friends that come here just to enjoy a hot drink with that cream, friends that aren’t lactose intolerant. I tell you it’s magic!
!!!I HOPE ONE DAY THEY WILL DO US THE PLEASURE BY STAYING OPEN FOR DINNER!!!
Maybe just one evening in the month to give it a try ;)
Anyway, have a look at the pictures and clip below.

AND TODAY IS A SPECIAL DAY…24th of May
* * * HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALAIN * * *  :)
