Serves meat, vegan options available. A sandwich shop where all sandwiches are accompanied with a green house salad with house dressing. There is an additional combo choice with a fruit smoothie and a side of veggies or sweet potato or potato fries (vary depending on local ingredients available at a given season). About 50% of the menu is vegetarian and vegan. Any vegetarian items that can be made vegan upon request. Offers a good selection of salads, as well as tea-based and fruit-based smoothies. The restaurant is small and cozy with a relaxed and low-key atmosphere. Parking in front. Easy to access by bus as well.

Best sandwiches in town - Edit

As mentioned by previous poster, La Gucheria specializes in sandwiches inspired by different places around the world. There is a very good selection of vegan and vegetarian sandwiches. The staff is friendly and they are very open to suggestions. If you ask, they'll let you know if they can make any of the non-vegan options vegan. Now about the food: These sandwiches are fantastic. Super tasty, fresh ingredients and you can tell they put some love into the recipes. My favorite is the Japanese guche, which is a cashew patty with wasabi mayo, topped with tempura veggies and teriyaki sauce. It's so flavorful. Their new Tico is also awesome. I bought a couple yesterday for lunch with a friend who is not vegan and they loved it. Portions are very generous.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly staff

Cons: Small slightly cramped seating area

Great Guches! - Edit

Guches are the sandwiches served here and they're amazing. The chef is always looking for new and interesting ideas inspired by world cuisine.
You can have a Japanese sandwich with a vegetarian cashew based pattie or a falafel one.
More than 50% of the menu is vegetarian and they have some vegan options and variations on their menu.
Great "SmooTeas" with fresh fruit on tea infusions.
Great pricing and location.
If your order is to go they charge a bit extra since they use eco/friendly packaging.

Pros: Great Variety, Sufficient Vegetarian and Vegan options, Amazing Side Dishes

Cons: It's a bit small and can get crowded, To Go Cups are not eco-friendly, Portions can be a bit big, so come with appetite!
