Vegetarian buffet

Posted on 02 / 05 / 2012

Large vegetarian buffet with many vegan options. All produce is fresh and wherever possible organic and grown in the restaurant's farm outside Sao Paulo. Arrive early if possible. The restaurant is located in the Brooklin area and many workers come here for lunch.

Best organic veg buffet I've seen in the world

Posted on 08 / 30 / 2010

Because of the picture and their web site, I expected a small-ish, mediocre restaurant - but WOW was I surprised.
The place is only open for lunch, but it is huge, sits right on a park, and has tables both inside and in front of the big open-air entrance.
The options were so diverse and numerous that you'd have to come 3 or 4 times just to try everything at the buffet. The staff is very nice, the price is right (about 20 Real, which is currently about $8), there are juices, a salad bar, and a coffee kiosk at the cashier so you can take a Brazilian coffee to go (super awesome!), and despite a couple things on the menu being a little bland, there's no doubt you'll find something you like.
I'm abroad about 20 days a month, and I'm always on the lookout for a vegetarian buffet (no awkward language barrier questions about the food), and indeed, this is the best I've seen anywhere.

Pros: Lot's of options at the buffet, Inexpensive, Spacious, open air restaurant
Cons: Some items a bit bland

This is a nice local business. The food in nicely prepared and placed in a very actrattive buffet which include cold salads, sprouts and raw as well as steamed vegetables, soups, grains and many and interesting hot dishes. They have fruit juices to drink and a couple of dessert as well as lots of fruits and coffee at the end. All the produce comes from their organic garden! They serve about 600 locals every day for lunch according to the owner (Renato). From Mon. to Fri. the price is 19 $RS (which is approx. $10.00 US) on Sun. it is 20 $RS. They have been in business for 20 years. If you are in Sao Paulo (and in the area) it is a must.

Pros: Good Food, Friendly atmosphere
Cons: Long line to pay
