Cute shop, yummy food

I had the "tuna" panini and a vegan brownie. Both were delicious! The panini was very tasty, with fresh veggies, and they were happy to accommodate onion free for me. The brownie was fresh and delicious.

Pros: Several options for meals and desserts, Happy to accommodate dietary restrictions , Nice atmosphere

Vegan empanada

Unfortunately, there were no more panninis, so we had only the vegan empanada. Nothing special but solved our hunger issue 😊

Delicious panini, but

Very good panini, the vegan tuna is perfect and it’s really big. The chips that come with it are very good aswell. The pineapple juice is nice and sweet.
We got charged more than what we ordered (before taxes) and it wasn’t because of the language barrier because I speak Spanish. Also, the prices for the sandwiches are not published and they should be. Ask for the receipt.

Comida fina

La torta de la hamburguesa vegana es hecha de la dueña - muy rica! Las papas del campo también fueron muy buenos!
El panini vegano también es recomendable. Toda la comida fue muy fresca.

El pastel de chocolate y Banano también me gustó mucho.😄

Tuvieron empanadas vegetales también, así que las llevamos por el día siguiente.

Pros: Comida fresca y rica

Had an absolutely lovely lunch at Evy’s. She is an incredibly talented chef and baker! I ordered the ‘tuna salad panini’ (chickpea tuna), and it came with a delicious dipping sauce, yuca chips and a nice side salad. To polish it off I got a lemon tart- yum yum yum! Would visit again. So tasty.

Unreal Chickpea Tuna Panini

Had the best meal so far at Evy’s! I ordered the chickpea tuna panini and it came with a small salad and plantain chips. The sandwich itself was hugeee and made with caramelized onions bit tomatoes and cucumbers #Veganuary

Pros: Friendly staff , Big portion, Vegan!

I enjoyed it!

I’d been craving a full flavor burger - and this hit the spot. With caramelized onions, avocado, lettuce, tomato, sauce, pickles. Very tasty. Fries were excellent. Maybe not the healthiest ☹️ lunch but was worth the indulgence. Cinnamon bun was tasty too. I’m picky. If I buy something and it’s not good I don’t eat it. I ate this one. On the other hand I’m not craving another. So I’d say it’s a solid B. #Veganuary

Best vegan sweets

Wow!!! The selection of vegan sweets is just amazing, it makes it hard to decide on one, especially after trying the quality. Really well done!! We tried the cinnamon bun - this one is crunchy outside and super wet inside. We had also extremely delicious strawberry tarte and chocolate banana pie, also crazy good!

Pros: Wide selection , Wet pies

Cons: Super sweet, Not gluten-free

Vegan food and desserts available

Evy's offers a couple of vegan main dishes (pannini and hamburger) that come with chips and a side salad. There are also several vegan desserts available, including a lemon tart, brownie, and a dessert roll. I ordered a pannini dish and tart, which came to 6300 Colones (US$10). A platter at the local sodas (lower cost food counters) come to about 5500 Colones so not a bad price for the town.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan options, Reasonably priced

Lots of Vegan Dessert Options!

The vegan falafel burger was delicious here, and so were the potato wedges! The best part was the dessert options. They had vegan brownies, pecan pies, cinnamon buns, and passion fruit cake. The lemon pie was sweet and delicious, the best I’ve ever had. They could have had more vegan lunch options, but overall it was really good.

My partner and I shared a vegan panini and a vegan burger and both were delicious. the burger had a falafel patty and the panini had vegan tuna made with chickpeas. both came with salad and chips/wedge fries. they have many sweet vegan options like cinnamon rolls, brownies, banana bread (with chocolate icing), pecan pie, and lemon pie. We also got to try a passion fruit cake that they were selling at another café made from Evy’s and it was superb and light. Definitely worth it and the prices are amazing!!

Pros: delicious flavor, many options

Cons: not all vegan

Good vegan options

Over a few visits, we tried the chickpea tuna panini, a lemon tart, a pecan pie, and the cinnamon roll. All tasted really good. They sell churros there which unfortunately aren't vegan. Hope they change the recipe soon because churros are usually vegan anyway.

Amazing place!

This is a must try in Santa Elena. The vegan hamburguer is huge and very tasty, and there are sooo many options of vegan pastries, and they are delicious! The owner is super friendly and everything looks very well made. It is also quite cheap and centrally located, definitely recommended! Great experience, I was fully satisfied and would give it 5 stars if possible!

Great coffee shop with vegan sandwiches and pastries

Was surprised there were so many vegan options here. They have nut milks of course for the coffee, a really good smoothie menu with lots of healthy options, a vegan hamburger and a vegan panini. But you definitely have to try the vegan baked goods. The pastel de papas was fantastic. So was the vegan quiche. And the chocolate covered banana bread was seriously the best thing anyone has ever done to banana bread.

Found this place a little by accident but I’m glad we did and would definitely stop here again. It’s also across the parking lots from Marlene’s trail foods which is also a food place to stop and get snacks for trail hiking. The owners of both stores are super friendly and I’m glad to support them!
