Familiar feeling, cheap ($) and very filling - Edit

First, very important, the price, "normal menu": soup + bread + plate + drink + coffee; FOR € 5.

A veggie and tasty soup with a regular white bread (with mix of cereals). Then you can choose what and quantity you can from the available food. I had brow rice (white availale) and a seitan + veggies mix in peanut sauce, some cabbage rolls stuffed with chickpeas and spinach (this were really good).
There is more to choose from Hot Dish, Quiche and Salads (Cold) and I could have ordered a larger amount but I had already ate bread and fruit before.
There is no alcohol inside, and the beer is 0 °.
Some stuff might have eggs and milk but the staff can explain what it's vegan, usually they use vegetable milk for most stuf.
The staff is extremely friendly and can leave you a smile on your face, at least for me it the difference.
The space inside is small and very local, might see some children playing inside, there are always natural juices home-made. The owners had a previous restaurant called Beringela (Eggplant).
I recommend you to visit this place since it's very friendly. It's near Praça (and metro) do Marquês or Metro dos Combatentes.

Pros: Niceness from the staff, Cheap and filling, Home-made fruit juice

Cons: Small (can be crowded), Food standard instable

Great service and food speaks louder than words - Edit

Salpicos Verdes may not be on most tourist trails in Porto but it is well worth a trip on the metro to find. We went there for lunch and were made to feel very welcome when we arrived although it became very apparent the two ladies serving could not speak English and sadly we cannot speak Portuguese. The starter was a selection of mixed salads served in a buffet style which was fresh and tasty, the main was served at the counter and we were given a choice of 4 or 5 dishes, all of which had been freshly prepared and had a home made feel about them which added to their deliciousness. We also had freshly crushed apple juice which was delicious and refreshing, and their coffee was very good too. The decor is honest and straightforward and reflects the fact this cafe is here for the locals and not passing tourist trade. When we were there, there was a steady stream of customers, all of whom seemed to be enjoying the food as much as we were. This was one of our most enjoyable dining experiences in Porto, not only because of the food but because of the charming, bubbly and friendly staff, who did not let the language barrier stop the from making sure we were happy.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great food

Simples, barato e fantastico!!! - Edit

Salpicos verdes é um restaurante, razoavelmente espaçoso, com um atendimento bastante agradável. A comida "do dia", a que está disponível para os menus mais económicos, vai variando todos, havendo um ou mais acompanhamentos, normalmente arroz branco, arroz integral ou batatas (normais ou doces), e pode ter pimentos recheados, algum tipo de feijoada, alho francês à bráz, parte de cebola... (tem sempre 4-5 pratos e 2 acompanhamento). pode-se fazer uma salada (brócolos, tomate, esparregado, cebola, ananás, feijão frade, vários tipos de sementes... os ingredientes variam cada dia) ou uma sopa e um pão caseiro. Também são feitos sumos naturais na hora. Todos os dia há uma sobremesa por 1€. Também é possível escolher uma refeição que será feita na hora como é exemplo a francesinha (sai apenas um pouco mais caro). Até hoje apenas pedi as refeições económicas e são deliciosas, tal como as sobremesas!!! e muito baratas!! Penso que por norma não utilizam produtos de origem animal, o que é ótimo!! Recomendo totalmente ^_^

Pros: barato e saboroso, sossegado , atendimento agradável

Cons: poderia ter estar melhor decorado

Exceptional place - Edit

Small but friendly place, where they offer various food each day with yummy salad, drinks and dessert for an affordable price. Along with the food, there is a friendly Angolan lady with a omnipresent big smile and warm heart to help with everything and make the experience of dining out even better.

Pros: Friendly service, Great veg food, Very low price
