Vegan Friendly

Every time I've visited I've enjoyed the food. Possible to eat healthy here, and they use local ingredients well.

Great food, relaxed atmosphere

Had a great vegan lunch at this spot, which has a nice vibe both in terms of the setting inside and out, as well as the service. We shared the babaganoush w/ pita appetizer (which I think was a special of the day - very flavorful but a bit seedy), and shared the Vegan Tacos (the slaw adds a nice crunch and love a fresh corn tortilla) and Piccadillo Cubano (delish “veggie ground no meat” which is made from lentils, walnuts and local mushrooms; rice and beans were on point and plantains cooked to perfection). Finished off our meal with the vegan brownie, which was okay (a bit cakey and slightly dry) but would skip next time. All in all great food and a definite spot for vegans to visit when in San Juan!

Note: the restaurant is tucked a bit back from the road - look for the sign up high, surrounded by greenery. Limited parking so it’s easier if you’re walking there or getting dropped off.

Great Find in San Juan

We stopped in for a late lunch.
Vegetarian options on Puerto Rico are really hard to find. This sweet little vegan restaurant had great food, fair prices, friendly staff and a peaceful vibe.

You order at the counter and they bring your meal to your table. We each had the Jibaro bowl with seitan. They came with brown rice, beans, small salad with tasty dressing and some other vegetable sides. I had the guanabana lime juice. Very refreshing.

We grabbed a vegan brownie for later, which was melt in your mouth delicious. Also picked up some banana nut bread and Meyer lemon cake for our flight north the next day.

We definitely plan to return.
Note that the hours are 11 am to 3 pm.
It is a little tricky to find, located in the back of a parking lot.

Pros: All the food, Friendly service , Ambience

Jibaro bowl and matcha latte

I had the Jibaro bowl and a matcha latte. I wanted a little more flavor but over all good and filling. I’m about to go back and try the dessert before i leave Puerto Rico 🙂

Amazing New Breakfast Menu

We came here to try out their new breakfast menu. It is open from 8am to 5pm on Thursday and Fridays. We had some amazing fresh tasting tofu scramble and waffles. Prices are comparable to other restaurants near by.

Staff super friendly as always.

Pros: Lots of vegan options.

Loved it!

Everything here was delicious! Service is a little slow so I recommend ordering ahead online. We went here twice in 4 days and our favourite was the cubano sandwich. The juices and lemonades are also fantastic. Great outdoor seating too.

A lot of vegan options. The Cubano sandwich was amazing. My daughter had the veggie burger which she enjoyed. The soup of the day (black bean, potato, tortilla) was pretty good. The rice and beans side was also good. The guanabana and limón juice was delicious and so was the lime crumble cake. There was a wait of about 25 minutes for our to go order. There was a sign posted saying that there would be a waitm we didn't mind. The food was worth it!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Cool atmosphere, Parking on site

Cons: Only open for lunch

Amazing thoughtful dishes

Full vegan menu - everything was delicious and was plated thoughtfully. We tried the pumpkin steak special, the cubano sandwich, horchata, and melon-limón juice. Superb!! Gorgeous earthy space and tasty menu with well-sized portions for a fair price. Only downside is they’re hardly ever open!

Pros: All vegan, Beautiful ambiance and food, Good value

Cons: Rarely open, Slow service (at least 30-45m wait)

You’ll be back

If you’re vacationing make sure you visit this place before your last day so you can come back more than once! It isn’t open on weekends. These are so many yummy things on the menu you’ll want to try them all. The menu is accessed via qr, so bring your phone. Make sure to check all tabs not just the menu tab. There are other items under daily specials that you won’t find under the regular menu. The food is fresh and delicious but soooo filling!

Pros: So many vegan options, Filling and satisfying

Cons: Closed on weekends

Food is very tasty and portions are very good. I've tried several things in the menu and all have been delicious. The only thing to better is the labeling of the food. Not everything is marked as vegan/non-vegan on their online menu or delivery apps. Always ask before ordering to make sure the sauces, dressings and bread are vegan!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Tasty, Kind and attentive staff

Cons: Vegan/non vegan items are not clearly labeled.

We got the gyro and cuban sandwiches, and they were delicious! It is a little expensive, but the food was so good and the sandwiches do come with sides. All of their take out containers are biodegradable, which I love! Definitely recommend!

Pros: Delicious food, Good portions

Cons: A little pricey , Location was difficult to find

Consistently delicious vegan food. Great staff

I have been eating there for more than 3 years now. Sadly I moved to VA, but every time I am in PR I eat there and bring my friends and family. Everyone loves the food, even though they are not vegan.
The vegan tacos, pumpkin soup, jubaro bowl and all desserts are always a hit.

Delicious food

The food was nice, the portion okay. I had the mushroom and black bean burger and my spouse had the seitan sub. The service was courteous. The reasons I’m giving three stars are: the food is really, really expensive and the service is abysmally slow. For two sandwiches with chips, and two coffees, we were there for two hours.

Pros: Lost of vegan options , Good food

Cons: Pricey , Slow service

Delicious food!

Everything we ordered was yummy! Magic tofu, bbq sandwich and the beet lemonade & tonic. Brownies looked like they were to die for but we were too full, so did the only sensible thing and took it to go =)

This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for! There were only 2 menu items today that were vegetarian instead of vegan, and I think we ordered every other menu item 😂😂😂...it was delicious, fast, and the staff was amazing. It was busy without seeming overwhelmed. Highly recommend! ❤️
