The smell ❤️

As we entered we've been overwhelmed by an amazing smell of deliciously cooked food. Inside very beautiful, the cakes I believe have no sugar added, really delicious.

Pros: Cozy, Nice seating, Delicious

Rare totally healthy, no sugar find

Unprocessed, no sugar, natural ingredients with no waste policy is how I cook and consume at home, and its so rare to find a vegan place that does all that. So I was in my element here. I love that they have add a charge for waste/leftover from the buffet.

Pros: Totally healthy and no sugar, Quality of food, Decor

Delicious food! Healthy and all vegan. I actually felt refreshed rather than sluggish after eating the Mung burger (usually vegan burgers are so heavy they make me tired). They also have great cakes that aren’t too sweet. A pot of tea with a slice of the orange cake was lovely on a chilly day.

Very Cozy Place!

Rating: 8/10

This is a very beautiful place, being adapted from an old stone house (you walk in through what used to be the stables) located in the center of Braga, in one of its "must stop" areas for tourists (Arco da Porta Nova). Its bigger than it looks and the decoration is very sweet while keeping the vibe of the house it's in (including stone seats by the windows typical of old times).
Staff was very friendly and the menu quite apetizing. I went for a snack during the afternoon, not lunch. I had pancakes and the person I went with had toast and a slice of cake. We both drank juice. Everything was delicious looking and tasting! It definitely felt homemade with love.
This is a great place to go with friends or family for brunch or lunch.

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

Pros: Location and decoration, great menu with delicious food

Cons: A little pricey

The waitress was very nice and the setting very pretty but the food was not up to par. No flavor, from the smoothie to the burger to the sauces. No seasoning, no interest. We have been to many vegan restaurants across Portugal but this was by far the least interesting. And the prices are high. 2 stars only because it is 100% vegan 🌱

Delicious lunch buffet!

They offer a wonderful lunch buffet which is a mix of cooked and raw food. It was delicious!
Unlimited tea and soup are also included in the buffet, so it's a real deal!

The carrot cake was good too.

Ótimo mas caro.

A localização e a decoração são fantásticas, mas os valores são elevados. Foi o local em que o chá foi mais dispendioso, tendo em conta ser de saqueta e apenas para uma pessoa.

Recomendação: tostas (são 5*).

Pros: Espaço acolhedor , Ótimo atendimento, Limpeza e higienização do espaço

Cons: Muito caro, Sem dispensador de álcool gel na mesa

Talvez o dia não foi dos melhores

Tive uma ótima experiência com meu pedido no semente (pumpkin burger) mas as 3 pessoas que estavam comigo não. Pediram para ser o buffet livre, como chegamos próximo das 13h30 (buffet fechava às 14h30) acharam que ainda teria boas opções, mas estava tudo no fim, a sopa demorou para ser reposta mais de 30min. As comidas que acabavam eram trocadas por outras opções, e o atendimento parecia atrapalhado. Sempre ouvi falar muito bem do Semente, e admiro demais pela ideia e espaço, só deixo registrado porque acredito que não era um bom dia por lá (e quem já trabalhou na restauração sabe que pode acontecer).

Happy late lunch

We found this place on the app and it was one of the few serving throughout the day. It was such a pleasent surprise - the staff was really nice and helpful, the food was amazing, the restaurant and the outdoor area very cosy even at this time of the year.

We ordered a miso soup, gomasio rice balls, tempura veggies and an awesome pumpkin burger that will linger in our taste bud memories fora long time.

Excellent experience!

Pros: Exclusive plant based menu, Tasty food, Great staff and vibe

Good sandwiches and deserts

We ordered T.A 2 times. The sandwiches were good portion. The mushroom (which wasn't suppose to be a sandwich but they closed the two pieces of bread for us), was good but there wasn't enough mushrooms.
The other one was with beet was good !

Both sandwiches the bread was a bit dry although we ordered it close to their opening hour in the morning. It was difficult to eat it 😐😐

The cakes were really Good! Nice, moist, not surgery. We enjoyed it a lot and tasted 3 different kinds

Pros: Location , Excellent cakes! (3 kinds)

Cons: A dry bread in the sandwiches
