You won’t regret

The food is made with love and care by the incredible owner who is very passionate and her son who helps her. They are lovely and the food is authentic and freshly made.
We had the best garlic bread ever in here.

We visited this place a few times since we loved the food and how tasty it was. The desserts were an incredible highlight!!

More heart and soul than taste

Small and cosy place with the heart at the right place. Kind and passionate owners who cook themselves and prepare some international, mostly traditionally inspired dishes. The burger was slightly uninspired though and the stroganoff lacking the zesty taste the menu was promising.

Pros: The venue, The owners, The attitude

Cons: The fanciless starter (dry bread), The high prices

Good food, friendly vegan cafe.

Had a delightful meal at Veggie Momi. Not only was the food excellent, but had a great conservation with the owner. She even gave us options to find healthy grocery options in Albufeira.

Highly recommended.

It was delicious and the Portions were big. Every Vegan in Albufeira should support this place with a visit.

Schönes kleines Restaurant mit vielfältiger Karte

Schönes kleines Restaurant in dem viel Liebe steckt.
Das Essen schmeckt hervorragend! Es gibt eine sehr abwechslungsreiche Karte mit unterschiedlichen veganen Gerichten (Wraps, Burger, Lasagne, vegane Shrimps, traditionelle portugiesische Gerichte) was sehr schön ist, da die vegane Auswahl in Albufeira ansonsten nicht so groß ist.
Das Personal ist sehr freundlich, man merkt der Inhaberin an, dass sie mit Herzblut versucht eine vegane Community in Albufeira aufzubauen.

Nice vegan cafe

We had a lovely meal and throughly enjoyed our meal. I had the shrimp curry and my wife had a wrap. Everything was very tasty. We then had a slice of cake each. Nice to have a fully vegan place in albufeira.

Vegan cafe

Si trova lontano dal caos del centro di Albufeira (cosa che apprezzo molto). Ci siamo fermati per una pausa veloce con caffè e pastel (che avevano in versione torta). Ci tornerei per provare anche i piatti che propongono per pranzo/cena.

Pros: Pastel de nata vegan , Menù vario

Platos muy grandes

Comimos muy bien, los platos eran grandes y la carta es muy variada. El personal es muy atento y amable. El lugar es pequeño y tienen unas mesas fuera (terraza). El único inconveniente es que el baño estaba roto y no lo pudimos usar

Netter Laden mit interessanten Gerichten

Süßer veganer Laden. Man sieht dem Laden an, dass er von einer Veganerin betrieben wird und viel Herzblut drin steckt. Ich hatte einen Kaffee, dieser war mit Zimt bestäubt. Kannte ich so gar nicht aber schmeckte wirklich gut. Zum essen bestelle ich Omelett und einen Cocktail zum trinken. Beides sehr lecker und gut sättigend.

Cute place, lovely people, nice food. Cash only! 💶

This is a small restaurant with a homey feel. Really nice to try one of the few 100% vegan places in the area, and the owners were so lovely and welcoming. I got the Momi’s burger and he got the chickenless burger. They came with sweet potato crisps (not fries). Both were huge, delicious and very filling! Would be great if all the ingredients were listen on the menu so you would know to ask for no pickles if you don’t like them etc but that’s a minor detail. And the piece de resistance was the vegan pastel de nata for dessert 😋. NB they only take cash - we had to do some sums to make sure we had enough!

Pros: Good food, Totally vegan, Lovely staff

Cons: They only take cash, no cards, Not all burger garnishes mentioned on the menu

Delicious food and desserts

We ate the toast with cheese and the beyond burger. Nice serving, good price and really tasty. The environment inside the restaurant shows a true vegan place from the heart.

The desserts was amazingly good. We have to find our way back.
Thanks 🙏

Must Visit in Albufeira ☀️

A fully vegan restaurant in Albufeira with traditional Portuguese dishes ! We had Camarões A La Guilho which was a lovely Portuguese shrimp dish 🤤 I have to say the shrimp was very impressive. The texture and the taste was on point, very realistic shrimp in my opinion 🍤🌱

We also had a toastie which was very simple, comforting and tasty ! Very good portion too !

Fantastic! In a town full of meat/fish this is an oasis

Cute little place with a tiny kitchen, mom cooks and son serves the best vegan food in the Algarve. We had ‘shrimps’ Algarve style (in white wine and garlic) with garlic bread followed by a Momi burger and chickun burger. The momi burger has a slice of grilled tofu, cheeze and facon. For dessert, we had a pastel de nata slice (her own recipe with cornflour and lots of cinnamon). Highly recommended venue.

Pros: Amazing food choices, Large portions for hungry folks like me, Friendly homespun atmosphere

Cons: None!

Great food

Food was pretty good - our omelettes were very salty but the chorizo which we had as a starter was great! The staff was really friendly as well.
One thing to note is the restaurant is cash only!

Pros: Good portions, We’ll seasoned, Great flavors
