Veggie go-to in San Sebastián - Edit

I love this place! When you're worn out from desperately trying to find veggie pintxos in the parte vieja, this place is your refuge. I've been here three times in the past five days: first for afternoon tea & postres (dessert), next for hummus, G&T and today for lunch. My daughter & I shared felafel wrap and the special of the day, which was roasted vegetables with quinoa and harissa, accompanied by excellent bread and a licuado (smoothie) made from carrot, ginger and I forget what else. It was tasty, filling and all in a friendly setting.

Pros: airy spot, small tables, lots of smiles

Cons: small tables, service a little bit random, may be

Not vegan-friendly anymore - Edit

I don't consider this place a vegan-friendly place. Moreover its damn expensive, silly-tourist-oriented.

Pros: Dunno

Cons: Not vegan friendly

Beautiful atmosphere and food - Edit

The location and the atmosphere of the Kafe Botanika are wonderful. I ordered the vegan "Asian Salad" and my boyfriend ordered Falafel which came with sauces that were non-vegan. My salad (with sweet potato noodels) did not taste good, but his falafel (I tried them without sauce) was aaaamazing! And the housemade juice was delicious as well, worth a try.

Pros: Atmosphere, Local

Cons: Average taste

pretty location but not a great experience - Edit

The first day i found this place i thought i would make it my home base for the week. They have wifi, veg option food, so a perfect place to do hang out for a while. It did not turn put that way, unfortunately. The staff does speak english but is not very welcoming, and not really an example of friendliness. Food is not bad, but not amazing. The cake looks nice but was dry - but then again, maybe that is the style there.
All in all worth trying, but without too many expectations.

Veg friendly, English Management - Edit

The owners are American and Canadian and were very willing to adjust some dishes slightly for a great vegan meal! Great, diverse bar with lots of basque local fare! Their salad is nicely balanced and the atmoshere is really hip and relaxed! The owners have a great story and are very open and willing to help with anything :)

Small veg offer but very yummy - Edit

When I've been there (02.16) they offered only 2 vegetarian dishes, wich both were vegan as well (hummus with pita 8,50€ and potato wedges 7€). It was very yummy but expensive. I'd eat there again :)

edit: I'm not sure if the mayo-dip is vegan.

Pros: yummy, central, nice athmosphere

Cons: expensive, small veg offer

a little confusing but okay - Edit

Definitely vege options, but limited for breakfast for us vegans.

Not table service, which I didn't realise for a while. More cafeteria than cafe in that respect.

Order inside, and stand there until you get everything. They were a little bit flustered when I came, I think, As I had to keep asking about my tomato on toast... Which took three attempts.

Had tea, tomato on toast and small bowl of fruit muesli without the yoghurt. About 10 Euro... So not overly cheap.

Will probably just try somewhere simpler next time. Seemed a bit to hard for a breaky that can get from a carneceria if I felt inclined.

The tortilla looked good for those who eat eggs.

Worth trying for yourself, with this in mind.
