Would be great if they marked vegan options

They have some vegan options (roughly half of the hot buffet), but it's a shame that nothing is marked as being vegan, so you have to rely on staff to tell you what you can eat.

Otherwise, pricing is reasonable and food is tasty.

There are also more locations that aren't on happycow, and even a "Shitake Pub" with live music.

Pros: Cheap vegan food

Cons: Vegan food not marked as such

Good selection, fair price

20-30 dish options that are buffet style. We went during the evening and the food was cold but you can use the microwave oven to warm it up. 260pesos for a plate with a drink and dessert, so it's a fair price. The food was decent

Pros: A lot of options

Cons: No labels of the dishes so no idea on ingredients

Fantastic buffet style veggie restaurant/cafe

Has a busy cafe atmosphere, the food is INCREDIBLE. They have such an amazing array of different foods, creating interesting tastes using vegetarian only ingredients. As other reviews I have seen have said, I don't think it particularly caters for vegans mind you, but for vegetarian it's fantastic. They also found us an extra table when they had run out.

It feels like this is the kind of food you would up paying a lot for in the UK and Europe.

Pros: Buffet, Cheap

Cons: Cannot see what the ingredients are without asking

Very bad

This was a disappointment for us.. There was NOTHING vegan.
They force you to buy a drink even if you don't want. Highly not recommended..

excellent food and wonderful friendly service!

My husband and I are traveling in Argentina for the MotoGP races, and oftentimes have trouble finding good vegan or vegetarian restaurants. This cafe is small and clean, with a good music vibe and busy floor. It is open buffet style, with regional delicacies, quiches, pizza, fresh lentil and chickpea salads, as well as a hot bar with wonderful lunch choices. Nothing is labeled, but it is fun to try different things, and they have wine and beer selections. They also do take-away. It was a great little gem to find in Tucumán! We highly recommend it :)
