Vegan Sorbet

3 vegan options, I opted for the blackberry. Good and refreshing. $3 for one scoop in a cup which was actually more like 2 scoops.

Superb all around!

Fantastic little shop! Great service (we were seated immediately and food came out in exactly 10 minutes for a party of 6), servers knew vegan and spoke English to answer questions. #Veganuary

Pros: Large portion , Super quick and great service, Vegan ice cream!

Delicious vegan sandwich

Sandwich clearly marked as vegan. Really tasty and on freshly made bread. Expensive but standard for area - $7.20 with no side salad/chips. No other vegan food options. Vegan sorbet and smoothies available. No vegan milks. Needs more options!

Updated from previous review on 2023-11-14

Pros: Best vegan sandwich on the island

Cons: Only one vegan meal option, No vegan milks, Some crisps on the side would be nice

Delicious vegan sandwich

The sandwich was amazing and the price was ok because it was quite big.
I liked the atmosphere there.
I'll come again.

Great Sandwich

I’ve had the vegan sandwich here twice now. Super delicious bread, yum mushrooms, great fries (to order as a side). Ice cream was great too. A little pricey but everything is on Santa Cruz!

Pros: Clear vegan option

Cons: Would have loved pizza but it was only vegetarian

Great atmosphere

Loved the vegan sandwich for $7. Unfortunately no protein. Nonetheless tasted great.

Atmosphere open and relaxed. Service very friendly and prompt.

The vegan ice cream options were 3-all sorbets.

Ok sandwich

I had the vegan sandwich (8.95) with avocado (1.45) and a side of chips/fries (4.25). While the sandwich was tasty it would have been disappointing without the avo. The chips were not particularly good.
No vegan cakes, but several fruit sorbet flavours available.

Great Breakfast

Had the vegan breakfast option, it was great. The freshly baked bread was AMAZING. Wanted to come back for lunch/dinner but didn't make it.

Vegan pizza and sandwiches

Pleasant cafe offering pizza, sandwiches (more rolls), fish and chips and desserts. Very few vegan options but will do vegan rolls and pizzas (avo instead of cheese). Vegan sorbet although not tried.

Pros: Vegan pizza

Cons: No view, street view

Fresh and delicious

We ate here twice on our recent trip to Puerto Ayora. They have multiple options for vegetarians and vegans. The sandwiches were very tasty, a step up from the average veg sandwich both because of the bread and delicious dressing. We also had salad and pizza one night for dinner. The service was friendly and fast. They also have vegan dessert options which we didn't try but everything looked amazing.

worth a visit

They can veganize their pizzas and those are in a reasonable price (for the island). They would even make you a vegan pizza with avocado instead of cheese, I prefered the cheeseless though. The ice cream is delicious, a must try. It made me addicted...
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are very well aware of different diets and react accordingly.
The atmosphere is welcoming and warm, even when there are a lot of people it does not feel noisy or too full.

Pros: vegan friendly, delicious ice cream, warm atmosphere

Cons: they also have dairy ice cream

vegan helado finally

They serve meat, but the staff was very helpful to tell us which ice cream had no milk. It also says ‘suitable for vegans’ in English on the list too. We also asked her to wash the scoop spoon to avoid milk contamination and she was very understanding and kindly did that for us. The guanabana ice cream was delicious!

nice veg-friendly place

Food is prepared ad-hoc, in front of the seating area, and they're keen to adapt the menu to your requirements. In particular you can have a veg*n pasta, pizza, or sandwhich, with a fresh salad (these are really good, and big!). Good fruit smoothies, and very tasty ice-cream (ask about dairy-free, as they're most done with milk or cream).

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere.

Pros: menu adaptable to veg*ns, big fresh salads, friendly staff

Cons: serves meat
