Best veg burger in SA

There weren’t too many veg options overall, but their veggie burger is the best, most nutritionally well-rounded meal I’ve had in South America! After a long run yesterday, I was SO happy to stumble upon this burger. It was literally as big as the plate. Chickpea garden-style patty for protein, guac for protein and healthy fat, crisp fresh veggies, toasted fresh pita.
I know some of us are sick of restaurant veggie burgers, but this one is worth it!!
They also have lots of veg-friendly apps: hummus plate, sautéed mushroom dish, quinoa plate, etc.

Only one option we could see

We asked about vegan options and they told us the veg burger (without yogurt sauce) and the salad were vegan. The burger was fine. We had hoped for more than one option. Not much here.

Pros: One option if you’re desperate

Cons: Very few or only one option

Very nice place

I read the other messages and I assume they have updated their menu. The burger is now in a Pita (Israeli/Arabic bread) which is completely vegan, and he is very good. They also have a few vegan milks that one can order instead of the regular one. Generally its a very nice place with good service and a great coffee (so my friends say).

Not worth it

I had the barista salad without cheese, and it ends up being really too expensive for what it is (lettuce with A LITTLE sauteed mushrooms and dried tomatoes; the mustard sauce that goes with it isn't vegan either).
Maybe the pasta and the pizza (mozarella left apart) are worth a try but one shoud ask about the dough etc...

This said, they have a super good craft beer.

No vegan food whatsoever!

I went there because I found this place here.
The burgers come in non vegan (or vegetarian) bread since it's made with lard (animal fat).
The battered and friend brocc is in an egg batter.
The only vegan option is the Barista salad if you order it without goat's cheese.
Vegan wine available, from Las Mulas by Miguel Torres, great wine, the best in Chile IMHO, but you can find that everywhere.
Not worth it!

Pros: Vegan wine

Cons: Non vegan friendly
