So many choices - Edit

One of my favorite places - I eat here every time I visit Sao Paulo, sometimes 2-3 times (most recently in December 2014). They have other locations in the city, and this is my favorite - with the largest selection of food and a large number of tables. Although other reviews mention that vegan dishes are indicated, I didn't see this on any of my trips here, but the staff are helpful and point them out. The price is excellent - about $10 US (at current exchange rates) for all you can eat buffet. Salads and hot dishes are excellent. Desserts look great, and some also taste great, but the best is the fresh fruits. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a big lunch and aren't trying to lose weight (if you are, you will need lots of will power).

Pros: Large selection of vegetarian food, Great value

Cons: Vegan dishes not indicated

great food! - Edit

After almost going crazy trying to find this place through the street of Sao Paulo, I had the chance to taste a really good food.

All the vegan options are marked and it is a all-you-can-eat buffet.
Be sure to try the vegan sausage and the dessert made from coffee.
Can't wait to come back.

Adds - Edit

Agreeing with most of what's being said, I have to add: you guys have to prove the vegetal protein hamburger they make. It's perfect!
Oh, and the place is really clean and fresh, which is nice given the brazilian weather. Bathrooms and lavatories well cared.
They accept credit cards, VR ("Vale Refeiçao") and money, of course.
It's a really good restaurant to take carnivors friends and show them how amazing and diverse vegetarian food can taste.

good vegetarian option in great location - Edit

complete buffet including juice (1 with sugar and 1 natural), full dessert bar, and a complete salad and hot meal bar. It's a great value for the money, that's for sure. As of this writing, it's R$18,00 during the week and R$20,00 on Saturday. Parking is tough to find in this busy Itaim Bibi neighborhood but it's one of the safest and most fun in Sao Paulo. The variety is outstanding, the quality pretty good. There's food for kids (french fries are a regular option), ice cream and fresh fruit on the dessert bar, and Brasilian-style vegetarian offerings for a low price.

Pros: variety, good quality, price

Cons: parking, lunch only

It isn`t vegetarian. - Edit

This "Cachoeira Tropical" has 3 restaurants, only 1 is (supposedly) vegetarian. The other 2 serve fish and chicken in its buffet.

Pros: good value

Cons: they serve meat

Cheap basic but good - Edit

It has a nice buffet with salad stuff, a range of soy and veggie dishes, basic sushi, fresh juices and dessert. There is some meat options but quite small. Be careful because the dinner menu is completely different and offers a special shrimp dinner with no buffet. But it is a great lunch place!
