Popular Amsterdam-based restaurant chain Vegan Junk Food Bar has opened its first all-vegan ice cream bar


The Dutch love ice cream, and thankfully there’s plenty of ways for vegans to enjoy this tasty frozen dessert without the dairy!

This week saw the opening of the first Buba Cream, a new concept by popular Amsterdam-based restaurant chain Vegan Junk Food Bar (VJFB).

The new ice cream kiosk will give customers a chance to treat their tastebuds to some bold new flavours with a range of unusual plant-based ice creams flavours on offer such as Macha Macha, purple limoncello and cotton candy crush.

The plant-based ice creams are mixed with chewy tapioca and a range of ‘flashy toppings’ such as tropical fruits and flowers, vegan gummy bears and Oreos to create colourful, Instagramable desserts.

At present, the first and only Buba Cream store is located in the front part of the VJFB restaurant in Amsterdam East, on Eerste van Swindenstraat.

Customers will also be able to grab a bite to eat from the tempting menu to enjoy with their ice cream as the vegan eatery will still be serving up its meat-free menu in the restaurants dining area.


However, VJFB has big plans to expand the concept further and has set its sights on opening a Buba Cream bar in all of its restaurants.

Free Buba Cream ices were given out to the first 100 customers when they opened this week, which they expect to repeat at any future openings, so if you are in Amsterdam definitely keep a lookout!

Buba Cream is located at the Vegan Junk Food Bar Restaurant in Amsterdam East, Eerste van Swindenstraat 389 and is open Monday to Sunday, from 12 pm-10 pm.

Vegan Junk Food Bar

Vegan Junk Food Bar opened as a small restaurant in Amsterdam West in 2017. There are several Vegan Junk Food Bar restaurants in Amsterdam as well as one in Rotterdam, with new branches opening in Barcelona and Groningen later this year.

VJFB serves their own innovative burgers, alongside a range of fries, vegan versions of traditional Dutch snacks, plant-based fish dishes, desserts and drinks. Earlier this year Vegan Junk Food Bar also launched the sale of various signature products in certain Dutch supermarkets.
