What a unique experience! After calling ahead and arranging a time you want to come you are being led into a private home and being treated to exceptionally delicious vegan food and beverage created especially for you by the lovely owner and chef Patti Lilly!

Pros: Very creative, tasty food

Cons: not a place to go if you are in hurry

Patti Lily makes incredible dishes, mostly raw vegan.

I purchase from Pura Vida at the Eco Tianguis market every Saturday morning. Patti makes the most amazing spring rolls, raw desserts, coconut ceviche, and so many other delicious dishes. She is super into fermentation so you’ll usually find different kinds of sauerkraut and kombucha. She really is an amazing chef... and those spring rolls, can’t say enough about them.

Pros: The spring rolls are the best., She as a variety of raw vegan desserts., Homemade kombucha!

Incredibly Creative Healthy Food

Patti Lily is one of the most creative vegan chefs in the world. She can do anything vegan and make it interesting and yummy. If you have a special diet contact Patti and she can cater for you or give you take out or dine in her patio area. She does vegan wraps filled with fresh veggies, coconut bacon (out of this world!) and accented with a lovely sauce. Her last special was a waffle falafel....using the chick pea waffle as the base and loaded with veggies and a tahini sauce. The kombuchas she offers are amazing. Be sure to contact Patti first to arrange to have the best healthy food of your life.

Pros: Menu always changes, Quality food made with care., Her kimchis and krauets are awesome too!

Cons: I can't eat with her everyday., She doesn't live in Troncones

Great food and an awesome host!

We visited Pura Vida as there aren't many options for vegetarian/vegan food in Zihuatanejo. It was relatively easy to find considering there wasn't a well placed sign but it did say Cooperativa Vegana on the gate which we liked. Patti offered us to sit outside near the pool in her beautiful yard but we decided to head right into her home which was very welcoming. She made us Vegan Pizza that was to die for with kombucha tea. Although the food was great, the thing we liked most about Pura Vida was undoubtedly Patti! Call ahead for take-out or just to let her know you'll be coming by and prepare your tastebuds for a little slice of heaven!

Pros: Awesome food, Great Atmosphere, Great Conversation

Cons: No Sign, No Set Menu but Flexible, No Set Hours... Yet :)
