Pretty solid lunch

Nice vegan options with medium-sized portions.

Best toast & mimosa

Lovely sunny spot serving beautiful topped roasts (called ‘bruschetta’) and mimosas.

The bruschetta caprese with vegan mozzarella was beautiful. Nicest dish I think I’ve ever had! A taste sensation.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Great vibes , Healthy menu

Cons: None

Average food

Had grilled tofu and others had the pink burger. Overall good presentation but the taste was flat. The restaurant moved to a bigger place, needs to improve a bit to keep up the expectations

Great food

Nice place in the Lxfactory area. The place is clean and modern with good service. The food is good and very nice, though the portions are a little small. Recommend three main courses to share for two people. Fair pricing.

Pros: Great options, Fair pricing, Tastes good

Cons: A little small portions

Amazing vegan pancakes

I really really loved the pancakes there. Even my not so vegan flatmate was super convinced and totally hooked by the pancakes. I remember them to be a bit more pricey, but worth it

Voldoende vegan opties.

Tijdens bezoek aan Factory LX hier via HappyCow terecht gekomen. Voldoende vegan opties, vooraf een bruchetta met paddenstoelen en als hoofd een bowl met tofu, groentes en een misosausje. Daarnaast een cider uit Spanje met perziksmaak 👍🏻

Pros: Vers en gezond. , Prijs en kwaliteit verhouding.

Cons: Geen gewone suiker, alleen kokossuiker. , Koffie was niet heet genoeg.

Ótimo conjunto

Localizado em um dos lugares mais hipster de Lisboa, a LX Factory, encontramos o The Therapist, um restaurante que tem a proposta de curar através da comida, além disso conta com um espaço de terapias alternativas e aulas de Yoga.

Apesar de não ser um restaurante 100% vegetariano, não nos faltaram opções no menu.

O ambiente é clean e tem uma energia muito boa!

Recomendamos a experiência!

Se pudesse dava 5 estrelas. A maioria dos pratos são veganos, e as sobremesas também são sugar free. Comemos excelentemente, num espaço super agradável!! O preço foi de 12€, tendo comido sopa, uma bowl, uma fatia de bolo e chá. Os empregados são simpáticos e prestáveis. No geral um excelente restaurante. O melhor em que comi em Lisboa nos últimos tempos.

Pros: Muitas opções veganas

Vegan salads in LX Factory

I went to the Therapist cafe for lunch while wandering around the LX Factory. Vegan options are cleadly labelled on the menu, so it was a easy option. I got the Therapist salad and a cappucino with soya milk. The cafe was only moderately busy (about 1:30PM on a Tuesday), and I was served quickly. The salad had spinach, avocado, tomato, kidney beans, seeds and cashew cheese. The salad was fine, except that there was also coriander in it, which wasn't listed on the menu.

Pros: Good location, clearly labelled vegan options, Bright, modern, friendly, quick service

Cons: Food was average, Unexpected coriander

Fresh food in the cool LX factory

Reasonably priced, tasty fresh food with lots of vegan options in the hip area of LX factory. We had the beans and curry, and the chocolate cake to finish. All came out super quick and left feeling full and happy!

Même pas une salade

Pour une enseigne qui se veut “healthy” il a fallu se rendre à l’évidence: pas de salade par ici. Ce que nous avons pris était néanmoins bon et j’ai pu y trouver des jus frais (avec légumes) délicieux.

better for tea then food

Very friendly staff but the food was a huge disappointment. The juice wasn't fresh, the main dish was without much flavor ... Not worth it.

Pros: decor, location, ambience

Cons: tasteless, limited GF-V options, price

1 start just because 0 is not an option. Terrible

I was really excited to try this new caffe. On the door it clearly says it is open every day until 7:30pm. I went one day at about 6:40pm and once at 7 on the dot and both times it was closed.
I finally decided to try and go in the morning for brunch. I tried the gluten free berry pancakes which I can confidently say were the worst pancakes I have ever had. Also ordered a cappuccino and even that disappointed: the milk was cold and there was no foam (i am aware is ard to get foam using plant based milks but i can guaratee they didnt even try).
After this disappointing breakfast i decided to come back for a yoga class. I talked to the staff and was given the class times, which are also on their websites and written on the wall of the caffe. I decided to join the class taking place thursday at 7:30pm, when i arrived there the store was closed (mind it was 7:10pm, not even 7:30 yet) and nobody was there.
At this point i have to ask, why even run a business this badly? Just dont bother at all.

Healthy and Good Flavours

I had lunch here and I enjoyed myself. Nice indoor or outside seating, friendly staff and clearly labelled vegan options. I had the bean bowl and vegan cheese bruschetta- both were really delicious and tastes fresh and healthy. Price was reasonable for the area as there are lots of fancier restaurants around. Food is super healthy macrobiotic style so be warned!
