Best vegan food in town!

They have buffet at noon consisting of mainly vegan and also vegetarian options. It is very delicious and diverse. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and very sweet. I have lunch there everyday. It is lovely and can be very much recommended.

Very affordable vegan and veg food in Centro Manaus

Delicious feijoada! My husband had the polpetone, also very nice. Very affordable, at 30 R$ and 26 R$ for our plates. We ordered from a menu, there was no buffet when we were here, but around 8 vegan options on the menu, and like 5 veg options.

Combine it with a visit to the old center of Manaus (Centro), it's right next to the famous theater.

Pros: Plenty of options, Cheap, Good location

Great vegan vegetarian place in Manaus

Was very glad to find this place in Amazonas. Vegan versions of traditional Brazilian dishes.

Excellent lunch

Great buffet lunch at a very reasonable price (45/kg). Lots of different options and most of them vegan. Plenty of seating and a nice interior, located next to the theater so no excuse to miss it.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

A nice bright alternative in Manaus.

Right in the middle of town, Casa da Pamonha was open early for coffee on our way to the theatre and we returned for the buffet lunch. As mentioned in other reviews a good portion of the options are vegan and as we don't eat wheat either the chef was called out to advise what we could have. The small vegetable cakes and pakoras were made with chick pea flour (grão-de-bico) so we were happy. It's RS$42 per kilo, the cheapest vegetarian price in the city so far and the place we would most likely return to while in Manaus. The coffee was RS$3 and the fridges were stacked with Coca-Cola. It would be awesome to see some kefir or more natural drink options as I have to make an allowance to give money to people hawking Coke and Nestlé.

Pros: Well prepared dishes. Organic Pineapples.

Cons: Unethical commercial products.

Simple and pleasent

I went there for lunch almost every they I spent in Manaus, it's the only vegetarian restaurant I could find, but that's not the only reason why I'd recommend this place. More or less 1/3 of the hot dishes were suitable for vegans, and everything I tried was really tasty. They don't label the dishes but the staff was very kind on showing me the vegan options. Ask if they have the vegan banana cake (wich looks more like a pie) for dessert, and if you go there just for a snack order a tapioca filled with "tucumã" (with no butter).

Pros: cheap, friendly staff

Cons: don't label the dishes

Veggie lunch

Vegetarian per kilo buffet at lunch only. In a convenient location near the Teatro. I had no trouble filling a plate with tasty vegan dishes.

cheap and tasty

We went for the vegetarian lunch to casa de pamonha and quite enjoyed the food. It was a per kg place, typical for Brazil, and there was a decent amount of dishes to choose from. The food was tasty and a nice change from the typical brazilian faire of beans and rice. Most dishes looked vegan to me but better to ask the staff to be sure. There was also tasty cakes and juices on offer. Please note that only the lunch is vegetarian!

Mediocre but few alternatives

I came here for the vegetarian lunch buffet, as there are very few other veg*n food places around. The venue was very clean and tranquil with a relaxed atmosphere, but sadly there is very little I can say positively about the food. Everything was really bland and mediocre with limited vegan options, and I had some difficulty explaining to the staff what vegans do and don't eat, even though I speak some Portuguese. The juice was bland and flavourless too. I appreciate that there are very few alternatives in this city, but I was still disappointed with their efforts.

Pros: Nice, clean space, Lack of other options

Cons: Mediocre food and drink, Don't know what vegan means

100% vegetarian lunch buffet

The "100% vegetarian" applies only to the lunch buffet, but I'm afraid this info is displayed in Portuguese only. They do have vegan options from texturized soy protein to seitan and also lacto-vegetarian meals (I am not sure about eggs). Very convenient location.

Pros: Cozy atmosphere, Convenient location, Good value
