Simple & kind

There is a daily menu with three courses. We had a lentil soup, rice&beans and we could choose desert. Simple food but appetizing.
The owner (?) was very kind, we got our food very fast & all in all it was a good experience!

Pros: Kind Owner, Cheap, Nice food

Económico. Comida casera.

Comida casera, como si estuvieras en la casa de tus abuelos. Pero todo recalentado al microondas y mi seitan estaba frío. Pero comí dos platos, postre y bebida por 10 euros. Comida rica. El señor muy amable. Local sucio!

Pros: Comida económica

Cons: Sucio, Oscuro

Traditional vegan food

Simple traditional tasty Tenerife food. Authentic place with very good food.
You can order a menu for 7,50€ soup, main dish and dessert. And additional tapas. All traditional canarian food.
Focus on Taste no try to be instagrammable which is rare these days.

A soup kitchen experience

The food was on the table in no time and was most like food from a soup kitchen. If so much salt hadn't been added, it would have tasted great. The dessert, on the other hand, was good and not too sweet.

Volveremos seguro.

¡Cuidado! Nos timaron

El menú se oferta por 7,50, cosa que vimos más tarde, nos sirvieron 3 croquetas, una ración de ensaladilla, ropa vieja, una ración de guiso con seitán y un postre por 29,90 €. Además fuimos a cenar y nos comentó que era lo que había sobrado de la comida, por lo que pensábamos que sería bastante más barato.

Pros: Comida vegana

Cons: Precio, nos cobraron de más, situación incómoda , Falta de limpieza, higiene

Interesting vibe

With its (tibetan) flags and hippie cave vibe, this is an interesting place! Intense but very friendly owner, simple but good food. Would recommend this as a whole experience!

Cute authentic place, no frills

Cute little place with a set menu of the day (you get what you get) and a few gluten-free options to swap out. Soup, main, and dessert. Good food using traditional Canarian flavor palate. We enjoyed ourselves and with the set menu costing €6,50 it really can’t be beat.

Cheap & tasty

School canteen type of food, but tasty and cheap. Don't expect anything fancy: they don't hide the fact that it's all cooked in big batches and reheated in the microwave before serving, but that's ok if you know what you're up to, and it's quick. We had menu del día (2 dishes desert), 2 tapas and a bottle of water, and paid 16.50EUR total.

Pros: Cheap, Quick, All vegan, tasty

Cons: Not so fancy, Simple, but it does the trick

Guachinche vegano

Hay bocadillos de seitán y tortilla a 2,5€. Menú de dos platos y un postre a 6'5€, el seitan y la tortilla de papas vegana, junto con la ensaladilla, son los platos que más me gustan de aquí.

Great value for good food

We visited in January 2023 and enjoyed the very reasonably priced 'menu of the day'. We were served three courses - a lovely thick soup with fresh bread, a black bean stew with rice and then a tasty flan (although there were 3 or 4 options for dessert). It's not fancy but it was good home cooking and very filling.

Quirky but worth it

Proprietor is a bit scary at first but don’t be put off. His friendly side will reveal itself. Full of locals of all ages says it all. Small menu but very generous portions and so cheap. We enjoyed the menu of the day a wee glass of wine and tried out our Spanish. Definitely worth the experience.

Cons: Toilet a bit quirky , No seating in the sun

That’s so true. He seems strange, but the food is great & he is not a bad guy. But even after visiting a few times, he still seems “quirky” ;-)

Excellent menu del dia

When we arrived the place was full and the owner was abrupt and seemed a bit unfriendly..if you think the same - don't let that put you off! This is just his manner and we were chatting away with him by the end. We knew we had come to a good place as it was full of locals.

The menu del dia is excellent value - I've never seen a vegan version before so it was great to be able to experience this authentic lunch menu. We had a lovely veg broth with lentils and barley followed by a seitan stew with potatoes and veg. There were 4 options for dessert - I had a lovely carrot cake which was nothing like one I would make myself but absolutely delicious.

I speak some spanish and get by quite easily normally. I found it a bit tricky here as he spoke very fast but he repeated things for me and we managed. There is no menu - check the board outside. There were a few things written on it but we just asked for the menu del dia and were delighted with what we got.

It's a small place and no actual outdoor seating as it's all under cover - probably a welcome retreat in the summer sun.

Pros: Great value - very affordable , Lovely choice of desserts

Cons: Small place - no outdoor seating

Dingy place, OK food

Cafe is in an alleyway (gallería)off a street.
'Menu' is scrawled on a board outside. Owner sent us back outside to read it.

'Basic' is an understatement to describe it. Food was ok.

Pros: All veggie

Cons: Appearance must put people off. , Menu & explanation from owner only in Spanish.

Please go here

This is a "vegan for the animals" place and it does an awesome set menu for an incredible €6.50.

The owner has a great way with his customers and clearly does this to make a difference .

Everything we had was tasty and we could have had it again immediately, yet none of it was in any way fancy - just excellent home-cooked vegan food, the kind of thing you'd expect to find at an anarchist cafe if they had a chef :)

Location is a bit unexpected but there are a couple of outdoor tables in the arcade making it pretty COVID safe too. #Veganuary

Pros: Proper set meal, Excellent price, Committed staff

Cons: Set meal with little flexibility , Short opening hours, Too far from my house

Lovely meal

Really good homemade food, served in a set menu type way, with three dessert options. The food is simple but delicious, reminds me of grandmas cooking. The owner is quirky and loveable. The place is dark and looks a little disconcerting but don’t let that dissuade you from a quick and cheap vegan meal in La Laguna 💗

Pros: Great homemade style food for cheap
