Some options

They do have some vegan or veganizable options.
We wanted to get hot chocolate but unfortunately they ran out of plant milk, so we got it made with water (was very delicious). Furthermore I got the Pasta Espagheutti, just a tomato sauce. I made sure to say without cheese. It was OK, but not something very special. It came with garlic bread, unfortunately made with butter. We also had a garbanzo bagel with hummus and veggies, which was very good. And we got a side dish of nachos.
Over all pleased. Place was the only open one left at that time and we were starving and left satisfied

Good for craft beer

If you are craving a craft beer (2 options from draft, many in bottle), a snack and nice outdoor seating then this is the place for you. They offered to put more beans on the nachos for not taking the cheese. The pico de gallo was really nice, but the nachos more on the soggy side. Other than that I saw fries and a few simple bagel options on the menu for vegans.

Right now (April 21) they are open Thursday-Sunday from 11-20. See their FB for updates on the opening hours.

Pros: Craft beer, Nice patio

Cons: Not many options, Very limited opening hours

Open late & everyday.

Food is just alright. I go mostly for the teas/frozen drinks, for a space to study at night/on Sundays, or to grab something when it is late and I'm feeling a bit hungry. Nothing is specifically listed as vegan but things can be made vegan (such as spaghetti with no cheese or a bagel with just peanut butter). You're going need to be able to speak a bit of Spanish to figure out what can be made vegan.

Staff is super friendly. I noticed some postings on another travel site about being ignored but I've never had that problem. Since they've opened up the patio area it might be a little bit easier to get lost but it's never a problem to go up to the main counter to order/request something.

Cafe has wifi but speeds can be slow depending on how many other people are using it.

Update: They changed their menu in September and added meat to the menu (they were previously 100% vegetarian, and somewhat vegan friendly). Kind of a bummer but still worth listing since they are pretty much the only veg-friendly cafe open late and open on Sundays.
