Amazing food!

I looked for a place to eat near where I was . I didn’t know this place at all but it was a very nice surprise!
One of the best gazpachos I’ve ever had! Also the quesadilla was amazing with all the ingredientes linked and tasty!
I’m not a big fan of pastries but i decided to try their crumble because I was curious if it would be as amazing as the rest, and it was even better!!!
The food isn’t cheap at all but in my opinion is totally worth it!
I would rate it 5⭐️ if the app I’ve let me!

Pros: Amazing flavors, Ingredients used, Well prepared

Cons: Price - not cheap

A very pleasant place

We had a lovely late lunch, excellent service and well presented food. The menu very clearly states what can be veganised.
The shop is good too for gifts and cooking, I bought a bottle of their self styled red wine only 4.50 euros, pleasant.

Pros: Good veg and vegan choices, Excellent service, Staff have good English my Portuguese is poor.

Cute cafe with vegan options

I appreciated the vegan options/atmosphere more than the food I had. I ordered the vegan quesadilla and I was underwhelmed. Not a ton of flavor. There were other vegan items on the menu that I suggest people try - and it is a good option in a location with no veg restaurants!

Pros: Clearly marked vegan items, Nice atmosphere, free wifi

Cons: Vegan quesadilla was kind of meh

Lovely shop with great food and an amazing view.

We visited this great restaurant recently and loved it. The bean burrito was very tasty and the vegan apple and berry crumble with vegan ice cream was perfect. Friendly staff and a beautiful view. We will definitely be back.

Although a little bit on the pricey side, the burrito was a great portion size, filling and delicious. Fresh squeezed Orange juice was perfect to start the morning. Staff were welcoming and friendly.

I would definitely eat here again

Nice food and good atmosphere

Nice atmosphere and the menu has a few vegan options. Generic breakfast food, all quite tasty but nothing outstanding. Only proper vegan options for miles, so if you're in the area, you must check it out.

Bastante bien

Comida internacional: tostadas, sándwiches y burritos, con un enfoque saludable. Las opciones veganas están marcadas, pero en general todo se puede hacer vegano. Batidos súper ricos, algunos incluso con leche de almendras (Pink Panther Smoothie, riquísimo). El local es bonito y acogedor.

Pros: Comida saludable

Earth Shop and Cafe

Extra cute cafe with an impressive view. Definitely a great place to enjoy a tea or coffee. I bumped this down a star because we bought a vegan wine from this place and when we opened it later, it turned out to be bad/spoiled and we had to pour it down the drain, which was disappointing.

Great food with great view

We had quinoa salad and super salad, both could be vegan. I specially like the vegan cheese they used replacing the goat cheese. Service was very fast and good as well. Only my plate smelled like eggs, which was probably washed with dishes containing eggs.

Pros: Many vegan options, Fulfilling salad

Cons: Egg smell on the plate

Liked it

I liked this place, they had loads of smoothies (compared to the rest of Portugal 😩) and some vegan options for food and cake. I had a guacamole toast, which came with a salad, and it was delicious. The vegan brownie wasn’t anything special though.

Pros: More vegan options than most places , Nice vegan cheese , Great if you’re eating with a meat eater

Expectations not fulfilled

After having read the other reviews my expectations were quite high. I agree that staff is very nice and helpful. The atmosphere is not really extraordinary, it is within a (nice) shop. I also liked the view, but you can only see the sea from a distance (there’s a photo of it). There aren’t many options for vegans. Most “vegan options” are vegetarian options that can be made vegan (by leaving non-vegan ingredients out). The vegan brownie was dry and didn’t seem to be fresh at all. They have almond milk. Smoothies are very good but also very expensive.
