Delicious food and desserts

I went in May 2023. The food was absolutely delicious. The area is a bit sketch looking upon arriving, but once inside, the food is good! There is limited seating area for dine in.

Good food and delicious desserts

I ordered the veggie tacos and they were fresh and flavorful! I wasn’t too hungry but if I was this portion may have been on the smaller side for me, which is worth noting. When I went they had four types of vegan cake and two types of cheesecakes and I wish I got a picture of them! I left with a slice of guava cheesecake and it was unbelievably delicious, so much so that I regretted not trying the other cake options (the lemon in particular looked amazing).

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Fresh and delicious, Friendly staff

Amazing food and service

First time in Puerto Rico, and the food did not disappoint. Neither did the desserts.

Worth the Wait!

Excellent food and customer service. Had a lentil soup to start that was warm and soothing. Had the papas supreme (loaded French fries) and the Quesadilla with vegan chicken in it. Both were great.

Decent vegan restaurant

Staff were very friendly and helpful. All vegan menu! Delicious fruity smoothies!

We ordered a Pina mango / papaya smoothie which was delicious.

Had the papa's supreme which was very tasty - a bit greasey though. We didn't know it had a cilantro sauce though, even though we specified no cilantro (think a bit of a language barrier which I'm not upset at all about). Just warning anyone who doesn't like cilantro that many of their dishes use this sauce.

Ordered a pasta dish, not really sure what it was called. Also a bit oily but decent for sure.

Tried the bean burger, which was not very good. The patty was very dry and overcooked. Would get a beyond patty over a homemade one next time.

Must Go Here

This was I think our favorite vegan place in Puerto Rico! 🇵🇷 We ordered a gyro (very good, "meat" was chewy) and had the Greek flavor which tasted great. We also got the special Mofongo and it was sooo good! Reminded me of seafood a bit but it was made using soy crunch as the meat. Our server apologized for a long wait and even gave us some soup with pita on the house. That was really good, I believe it was a squash or pumpkin soup. Must visit !

Pros: A lot of dishes, Good prices , Staff was very nice and helpful

Our Happy Place

This meal brought my husband back to his childhood-clove infused ham with pineapple over creamy mashers. I had the gyro, which was enormous. 2 people can easily share it and have dessert. Both dishes were excellent. We’ll definitely come back to try the pizza, which is the big draw here.

Pros: Nice friendly staff, Big portions, Delicious food

Delicious food in an intimate cafe

Food prepared fresh and healthier than other vegan places. Even french fries were baked rather than fried. I had the mushroom taco special. Pumpkin soup was nice. Gyro was really excellent. Supreme fries include meat crumbles and was good too. Raw desserts were just ok. Our young waitress seemed a little new at her job but did it very well.
Ferry to Old San Juan not was not running but if it was that would have been a great way to get here and back. Or the bus. Easy walking distance to the ferry pier.

Pros: Healthier than some vegan places, Small setting, Friendly service

Cons: Outside the city

Best vegan restaurant in San Juan!

The food was amazing! We ate our way through the entire menu and loved everything: the soup of the day, majado de pana, impossible burger with loaded fries, ravioli, arroz con cebolla y pechuga de ‚pollo‘. We also tried their delicious smoothies, guava sangria and all their cakes - fabulous!
The server is incredibly friendly, the cafe has a great atmosphere and price was incredible for the quality and quantity of food! We’ll be back ☺️

Pros: Exciting specials that change daily, Amazing variety even Puerto Rican dishes, Amazing prices!

Solid vegan food

Great place for a burger, fries and a shake! Or any of the other comfort foods on the all vegan menu. There are FIVE veggie patty options, and options to get shakes with three different kinds of plant milk, sweetened with sugar or agave. You can really have it your way at this place! They also sell vegan wines, preserves in jars, and desserts. #Veganuary

Pros: Good batida selection, Good house made burger selection, Easy parking and near waterfront

Worth the effort to arrive!

Cute & friendly restaurant. Menu mostly stays the same + always a daily special. Creative, flavorful, and unique. The ferry is currently inoperable (as of 1/22), but there is a bus service to replace it (Cataño Viejo San Juan). Absolutely worth the trek to support this small, fully vegan joint!

Great vegan food!

This place serves very natural and great tasting food! We got the garbanzo and nut burger, the gyro wrap, lime cake, hibiscus water, and white sangria. Everything was amazing. The young girl who helped us was also very attentive and friendly. There is indoor seating and it is clean. I would definitely return!

If I could put 6 stars I would!

They are a family and they make you feel like family when you sit in their restaurant. The customer service was amazing even though the mom didn’t speak that much English she was so patient with us! The daughter let us try the food before getting the full order and even went over and beyond for me to make sure my desert had no nuts! I absolutely love them! I will be going back there when I return to Puerto Rico ♥️

We had the chef daily special which was a vegan spin on Chinese rice with chickpeas and mushroom! VERY WELL SEASONED

Pros: Big food portions, Very clean , AWESOME customer service

Just a short ferry ride from San Juan!!

El Punto Vegano is located just off the water on the opposite side of the bay from San Juan. The ferry is running now every 30 minutes and is only .50 per way. The ferry ride is about 10 minutes and offers a nice view throughout.

The food is amazing!! We live in San Juan so have visited several times, always delicious!! Puerto Rican flavors without animals, just delicious beautiful food.

Pros: Ferry from San Juan to Catano, 100% vegan, Puerto Rican flavors and nice variety
