Charming patisserie and cafe - Edit

Completely vegan menu - lots of delicious lunch options and pretty desserts. Very chill, eco, pleasant atmosphere. We came for a midday snack and got the lemon/fruit cheesecake, brownie, and fruit galette. All were delicious - the cheesecake was light and flavorful, the brownie was dense and rich, and the galette was impeccably well-spiced with a variety of fruits. Unique craft beer was also on point along with the banana smoothie (to which we added cocoa and made it even more tasty). Highly recommended for a bright breakfast or lunch!

Pros: Full vegan, Pleasant atmosphere , Delicious food

Cons: Minimum 30 soles on card, Slightly above average - not cheap

Great find in Lima - Edit

One of the best we’ve tried in Lima. Cosy cafe atmosphere with only a few tables. All vegan Salads, sandwiches, wraps and a great selection of brunch/breakfast (until 11:30am) available. Would recommend for breakfast, lunch or a casual dinner. So many nice desserts and biscuits!

excellent food, wonderful service and adorable vibe - Edit

This little gem was only a few blocks from my hotel in Miraflores. It serves all vegan fare with Peruvian twists and a sells wide array of baked goods, fresh fruit, and teas. It seats about 30 so it’s very intimate and cozy. I will come back again before my trip in Lima is done - Eryc good find!

Super good food, but a bit expensive. - Edit

Located in a very trendy part of Miraflores, their prices are a bit inflated for the portion sizes. All the food is very delicious though, love the sandwiches and raw desserts.

Fantastic Options, Authentic & Genuine - Edit

Menu alone is enough to make any Vegetarian/Vegan cry with number of delicious options. Got the sense the place was also a community given their organic food store and the homemade feel to everything. Wee bit pricy by Perú standards (~50 soles for two people), but worth it when you’re paying for vegan organic.

very good food - Edit

The dinner menu had one main meal option that covered my choices of being vegan and gluten free. The food very very tasty and nutritious and enjoyed not only by me, but also by my non vegetarian friend who came with me. I would have happily chosen that dish even if there were other options available. The sweets menu had three good choices which was nice. I would return, although while I am in Lima I aim to visit a variety of vegan cafes.

Wish I Could've Eaten More... - Edit

So many beautiful options to choose from...but with only one mouth and one belly, I was only able to try 1/20th of what I really wanted.

The place was filled with wonderful aromas, as they were doing their baking for the next few days while I visited. Unfortunately there weren't really any desserts to choose from, as they were mostly sold out, but I did indulge in "ice cream" (which was more of a sorbet but still quite good). I had an awesome salad, fresh juice, and a giganto burger as well. My biggest regret was not having the time to go back and eat more.

Their hours are limited this summer but they will have longer hours for the Fall, so please take advantage of this awesome little place.

Pros: Wonderful service, Lots of options , Everything is 💣

Cons: A little pricey (but worth it)

Not closed! - Edit

The last review said this place is always closed.
Well, I think they may be closed at weekends, but I'm here at 2pm on a Friday, and it's open.

The food is fresh and delicious, my drink is also (El Verde), and it comes with a reusable metal straw - genius! The amount of plastic that gets used throughout Latin America (and the rest of the world) is incredible / scary / incredibly scary, so well done La Verde for this!

Not the cheapest place to eat in Lima, but worth it.

Pros: 100% vegan, No plastic, Deliciousness

Cons: Closed on weekends (I think)

One of my favorites! - Edit

The place is really cozy and nice, the staff speaks great English and all the food I had there was amazing! Loved the desserts, too, and I tried a bunch of them. They also have a store on the back which is pretty nice and sells snacks, tea, vegan yoghurt and so on. Only negative points would be for how the interior doesn't fit a lot of customers since it's pretty tiny and also the service might be real slow...

Pros: Great food!!!! + desserts, Nice store on the back

Cons: Slow service, Could get crowded 'cause its small

delicious and so healthy! - Edit

We loved this place. It was our first food we had in miraflores. The waitress spoke perfect English and was super helpful. My boyfriend got a burger and I got a grilled veggie wrap. Both were so fresh and delicious. We also got juice that tasted like it was freshly squeezed. It was slightly pricey, but that is the norm for miraflores.

Delicious!!! - Edit

Great place to eat! The food is delicious and prompt but freshly made. The staff are lovely and friendly, very helpful.
The quality of the food is worth the price which is still very reasonable.
Highly recommended, we have been twice already and will go again before leaving ?

I don't understand the hype around this place - Edit

I'm going to start with the positives. This place is in a very good location. Now that's over with, I'll move onto the negatives.

First of all, their prices are obscene. I understand that it's Miraflores and the rent isn't exactly low, but even compared to other small vegan businesses in the area, their prices are almost laughable. Our 3/4 of a waffle with some fruit and sauce was 27 soles, an alfajor the size of a two pound coin was 7 soles and a pot of tea 12.

And for those prices, I expect great things. I've heard and read very good reviews about this place so expectations were raised even more.

The food fell short of any and all expectations. The alfajor was minuscule and didn't resemble an actual alfajor in any way, shape or form. The tea was fine but it's pretty hard to go wrong with a pot of tea. What disappointed us most of all was the waffle.

It came in two flavour, one that tasted like bitter orange and the other vaguely resembling chocolate. It was topped with a chocolate sauce (despite being ordered with ice cream), which wasn't sweet and tasted more like coffee than chocolate and was chalky at best. On the side we got some fruit, marmalade and miel de chancaca. Again can't go wrong with those but I'm not inclined to pay that much for a pot of fruit with some jam and syrup.

Maybe the rest of the menu has better things but I won't be going back any time soon to try it out.

Pros: location

Cons: food, price
