Vegan options - Edit

Simple cafe style restaurant. Has clearly marked vegan option. Sandwiches, salads, juices etc. Ushuaia is not easy for vegans so this place is very useful. The sandwich was bland but fresh. The salads were a better option. The chocolate muffin was also tasty.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan food (vegano ) , Reasonable prices , Salads are tasty

an abundance of options in otherwise barren Ushuaia - Edit

It has not been easy to find satisfying vegan food in Southern Argentina. I was happy to track this place down easily and see many clearly labeled vegan options and plenty of charging stations with free WiFi. If I come back I would choose to stay in the attached hotel. I have had the grilled veggie sandwich (they only offer mustard packets), quinoa with peppers, onion, and cucumber, a slice of a sort of coffee cake, and a soy milk latte. I have seen on their menu of the day there is a vegan option which can be hot and there is a veggie burger.

Pros: many vegan options, good service, charging ports and WiFi

Cons: pricey, can get crowded, more cold than hot options

Ushuaia's only option - Edit

I ate here a half dozen times while staying in town; it's the only place in town that offers a limited vegan menu. I wasn't impressed when my veggie burger arrived with cow cheese on it, the attitude when I returned it wasn't pleasant either. Very pricey as well.

Pros: only option

Cons: extremely expensive

muy recomendable - Edit

Me encanta ir, el menu vegetariano/vegano siempre es rico y se ve que le ponen mucho amor a lo que hacen, es mi lugar favorito para ir a tomar algo o almorzar en Ushuaia 😊

Very disappointing: No (hot) vegan food on most days - Edit

They advertise vegan food in the window and claim to have a vegan meal of the day. However, we went there three days in a row and on none of these days did they have a vegan meal of the day - they did have small and not very appetizing looking sandwiches, which were prepacked in the fridge and very expensive. On the last day, they did eventually create a vegan dish by providing some vegetable fried rice, which was okay, but not great.
As for vegetarian food: We also had filled bellpeppers, which were filled mostly with cheese and tasted okay, but not great.
We also did not like the figue coffee they offer as vegan coffee - it was just black coffee without a milk substitute of any kind.
Also, everything was rather expensive.
All in all, very disappointing.

Pros: central location, wifi, internationally standardized cafe setting

Cons: false advertisement, not actually with a vegan meal of the day,, food tastes average at best, expensive

Some options in Ushuaia! - Edit

I've been there yesterday (sunday) at noon. Sadly they didn't have any hot meals (and it would have been nice, it was kind of cold). Even the vegetable soup wasn't vegan. They did have some vegetarian options, but nothing vegan.
What they do have almost everyday are cold options: sandwiches, salads. I had a nice salad, some fruit for dessert and a drink. All in all it's not that expensive, considering that Ushuaia IS an expensive city.

Note: They do have a full vegan menu but only on wednesdays!

Pros: cold vegan options everyday, fresh ingredients, nice people

Cons: few hot vegan options

Vegan Friendly in Ushuaia - Edit

Marcopolo Freelife is a great spot for vegan/vegetarians in Ushuaia. They have a number of options on the menu as well as premade items ready for to-go (salads, sandwiches, fruit salad). I had the vegan empanadas which were great, highly recommended! They had a soy-based filling, well seasoned. Unfortunately during my visit they did not have vegan bread so I was unable to order a sandwich, and I was told the veggie burgers are not vegan - but there are a couple to choose from for vegetarians (my boyfriend enjoyed his hamburguesa de verduras, although he liked my empanadas more). Licuados (smoothies) are super tasty. Vegan coffee (fig based coffee) was interesting, I enjoyed it. Nice service, good vibe.

Pros: Vegan options, Nice service, Free wifi

Cons: All vegan options not always available

Decent food - Edit

This place has a lot of all-natural foods, and several vegetarian and vegan selections. The food is mostly out buffet style a la carte, pre-prepared. There was a good selection of regular meal-types of foods and lots of desserts (don't think any desserts were vegan).

We stopped by around lunch time just to look at what they had and came back for dinner, and it seemed to be the same selection - in fact, the same exact food sitting out the entire time, just some of it sold out. For that reason, I'd say lunch is a better bet for fresher food since they do not seem to replenish for dinner.

Food was ok - not bad, but nothing to rave about. But the employees were friendly and it's a cute little place.

Decent alternative - Edit

Decent fast food and already prepared food alternative if you're looking for veg food (basically non existent) in Ushuaia.

It's also a perfect place for someone to work as they offer plugs and chargers in some tables. The staff is really friendly.
