Vegan in Aveiro

Great spot for a quick lunch on a quaint side street in the town center. The bean burger on the beetroot bun was fabulous. Also on the menu- various desserts, hummus and vegetables, and a daily special selection. Açaí bowls and drinks. Fun snacks too. The food was delicious.

Pros: Friendly Service , Great Presentation , Excellent food.

Bien en general

Multitud de opciones ricas y bien presentadas (al menos para desayunar). Algún plato puede parecer algo caro teniendo en cuenta la cantidad de comida que ofrecen.

En general, la comida es sabrosa y la atención buena. El local está bien situado y tiene una pequeña terraza.

Pros: Variedad, Comida rica

Cons: Algo caro

Not as good as expected

We've been here as a couple looking for vegan food. The good reviews lead us here. We've been greeted by the waitress with a list of different languages instead of a hello and should have left right then.
I myself went to the bathroom first and my girlfriend waited for me at the table. When I came back she told me the waitress wanted to know what we would like to have while I was away. As soon as I sat down she reappeared and asked "decided?" with a grunty face.

Over the course of only about 5 minutes she asked three times while there were only 3 tables seated.

The starter of my partner arrived first and I had to wait about 10 minutes for mine while hers was already getting cold.

The main course - 2 hamburgers - arrived shortly after we finished our first plate. The sweet potato chrisps (not fries/chips!) were far too crispy. The burger was dry and the bread seemed not done.

I regret to say, as I would love to support more 100% vegan restaurants, that the food really isn't as good as reviewed by others and the waitress seemed to have a really bad day.

Cons: Grumpy waitress , Pricing not reasonable, Food could be better

Uma surpresa 😲

Sobremesas divinais
Passei numa rua de Aveiro, que não tenho tanta rotina e fui surpreendido, entrei e fiquei vislumbrando com a oferta.
Comi uma fatia de bolo que me saltou à vista e uma kombucha de gengibre

Lovely Brunch Spot

We stopped by for a brunch and had Pancakes. They were really good (not very sweet though). Prices are very fair and staff ist lovely. The cakes and quiches on the counter looked also very delicious.

Pros: 100% vegan, Prices, Location

A hidden gem

It was a bit of a search to find, but worth it. Cute place. Clean and bright. Warm welcome from the waitress, who also did much of the cooking? Our zucchini soup and roasted veggie/lentil bowl were delicious! Next time, I would ask for the yogurt sauce in the side - it was a bit overwhelming in quantity and flavor for me. Service is not super fast, and the food was not hot - only lukewarm. There are not many menu options, but we were very satisfied by the healthy and yummy food. Would definitely return.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, Friendly service , Healthy food

Cons: GPS has hard time finding the place

Hit or miss menu

Their entirely vegan menu had a lot of options in a very meaty country. The burgers were especially tasty and filling! However all the food had slightly strange texture and the falafel was objectively not falafel but rather some grain patties.

To be fair, we came close to closing so we could only try a small portion of the menu but it was pretty disappointing.

It did feel slightly less touristy then a lot of other restaurants in the area and the service was great!

I would return again but definitely wouldn’t introduce their food to vegan skeptics.

Nice vegan place

Small diner offering burgers and a different vegan dish every day. I especially like the shiitake mushrooms on toast.

Nice little café with daily lunch specials

We called into Rais for lunch when visiting Aveiro. It was pretty busy - which is always a good sign - so we ended up grabbing an outdoor table even though it was a bit chilly! The reception from the friendly staff was, however, much warmer!

We both decided to go for the daily lunch special of black bean stew served with brown rice & fried bananas, which was much nicer than it may sound! There's a different lunch special every day & they all sounded good! They also serve burgers, quiche & salads.

Warm place

Almost hidden in a tight street this place was a great surprise. The person serving that night (a young woman) was super friendly and helpful. The Miso soup was exactly what I needed that night and the seitan was delicious!

Pros: Vegan, Macrobiotic

Lecker aber kleine Abzüge

Wir waren zum Brunch hier. Das Essen hat leider sehr lange gedauert. Das Avocado Brot war sehr lecker, die Panecakes haben uns geschmacklich nicht ganz überzeugt. Dafür hat der Preis absolut gestimmt. Ich hatte einen Café Latte, das Avocado Brot und die Raiz Pancakes für 11,60€.

Esperava mais

As entradas foram boas o café bio tambem. Atendimento rápido e simpático mas a relação qualidade/preço não me parecr razoável. O bolo completamente sem sabor fiquei tão desiludida pois o aspecto era divino. O Hambúrguer de tofu era saboroso mas muito oleoso.

A Gem in Aveiro!

The food is delicious and the service was quick and friendly. We had the beet soup of the day and sweet and sour tofu and the azousi bean burger with sweet potato fries. We were not a fan of the daily tea or the baba de Camelo which came with the meal of the day.

Pros: All vegan options!, Delicious

Sitio 100% vegano con menú del día

Pedimos un par de entrantes (quiche y falafel) más menú del día (sopa y una especie de pastel de boniato con ensalada). La verdad que muy rico todo, especialmente los entrantes!

Pros: Menú del dia, Terraza en una callecita tranquila

Great home-cooked food

The daily menu gives a homemade vibe and is contained a lot of different things. A little too much oil to my taste and after having had amazing vegan food this is nothing spectacular though. Friendly service

Pros: Affordable , Versatile, Changing daily menu

Cons: Oily

Pretty good!

Rating: 7.5/10

You'll find a good quality-price ratio here. The food is very tasty (and so are the desserts), and definitely feels homemade and healthy!
Location is great, the place is small but pleasant. Besides who I assume is the owner/manager, the staff feels somewhat untrained, but is still polite. Service was quite slow (but I did go on August, so I felt like there were way more clients than they're used to).

Note: I've only had the chance to come to this restaurant once (2022), but I'd like to come back

Pros: Good quality-price ratio, tasty food and desserts, location and decoration

Cons: Slow service, untrained (or simply overwhelmed) staff

Saboroso e farto!

Restaurante pequeno e muito agradável, pedi o menu com sopa e prato do dia que era feijoada brasileira e sopa de abóbora, ainda vem uma salada de acompanhamento. Tudo muito saboroso, não consegui pedir a sobremesa porque fiquei muito satisfeita com o almoço, vale retornar depois para experimentar. Eles também servem pequeno almoço pela manhã e snacks a tarde e a noite.
