We felt a little aggrieved when we only paid passing mention to this quirky wee place when we shined the spotlight on its bigger sister Veist, so we decided to give it a little Unlike-cyberspace all of its own. While big sis is a straight up vintage store stocking women’s apparel, Feed x Veist is threads for guys with a cafe attached — for the discerning gent, let’s say, who’d like to sup upon a special recipe mojito, or chow down on some crostata di mele, while he browses. (Ladies, you’re welcome too, obviously).
Let’s start on the Veist side of things. Yes, the selection of garments isn’t massive, but that’s because they’ve done away with the chaff. Almost everything there is worth trying on, at the very least. There are shirts — from plain, through patterned, to plaid — old school kicks, jackets (heavy duty and light) and accessories. Insider tip: The jumper section is where you’re going to find the real winners. If you’re worried about paying through the teeth, don’t be. The prices are refreshingly reasonable — shirts go for around €15.
Now for Feed, the cafe section of this unlikely symbiosis. Looks-wise, it’s no frills in a good way — simple wooden furniture with chipped paint and crates made into seats. The menu is centred around lunchy stuff (quiches, tarts and salads) and various homemade Kuchen. There’s daily food and drink specials such as the aforementioned mojito and crostata, too, and if you’re heading down post-daylight hours, there’s every chance you’ll find yourself becoming part of a mini-gig. There’s no corners to hide in, it’s that cosy.
