Cozy and delicious!

Delicious food and good value! Cozy spot in convenient location, very attentive staff. There were also some sweets, sandwiches and other options, all vegan.

Ate the daily menu, consisting of soup, main course, juice and a cup of tea por $3500 CLP.

Pros: Good value, Delicious food

Cons: Sells eggs (supposedly from "free" hens)

Friendly spot in convenient location

We stopped by on our way home as it was close to the Valparaiso bus terminal, on a quiet side street. We had two of the set breakfasts for 3000 pesos each - there was a choice of hummus or avocado toast, a muffin or brownie, and tea or coffee. We tried one of everything - it was all delicious and tasted home-made. The portions are not huge, but it is good value for the prices, and the service was very friendly.

Pros: Good location, Friendly service, Good value

Cons: Cash only (there is an ATM nearby)

Okay but nothing more

I took the daily menu and a cheesecake. The daily was a soup and a bean salad. The soup was very tasty but the salad was just okay. The portion size was quite small. The cheesecake was not a cheesecake as I'm used to but okay. They also have breakfast options.

Cons: Only cash

Small portions but tasty

The set lunch for CLP 3,500 consisted of soup, salad, juice and tea and was tasty if not a lot of food altogether (more like a „light lunch“).

Pros: All vegan, Inexpensive lunch

Nice place! Great concept, good food but not amazing

In Chile it’s not too easy to find vegan places therefore I still recommend it! But the portions are smallish so if you are very hungry it might not be enough. The menu is put together well and there are two tables outside. If you take the food away it’s cheaper if you bring your own container :)

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Good food, just not enough of it

I ate here on a Saturday in January 2019. The meal of the day on Saturday is currently 3900 pesos. Today it included a bowl of delicious tomato soup, the main plate which was lettuce topped with hummus, and a juice of my choosing. I thought the food was good, though not extraordinary. There just wasn't enough food for my appetite as I was hungry again 2 hours later.

Cozy and friendly

The place is small, but very cozy, you can sit inside or outside if the weather is nice. People are very friendly. We had a full menu with a squash soup, juice and a black bean bowl. We had a coffee and muffin at the end. Everything was very fresh and warm, the size portions are perfect!

Pros: Fresh, homemade, cozy

Such an amazing find! They have a set menu and every bit of it was delicious!

A cosy little restaurant with a cool atmosphere. The set meal included a apple and ginger juice, a warming soup, and a large salad bowl with homemade falafel style stuffing, and washed it all down with a cacao and orange tea. Delicious! Amazing value for money too. They also sell some home produce which is nice to see

Pros: Great vegan options, Flavour packed food, Lovely staff

healthy and tasty

I had the lunch meal. It was a delicious carot soup followed by a tasty lentils salad. Accompanied by a juice and a tea.
The staff is very friendly and the price is low. But she did not wait for me to finish my soup before serving the salad and eating outside means sitting on the sidewalk.

Pros: fresh ingredients, friendly staff, good value

Cons: small site

Very filling lunch

Supersmall cafe where a set menu is available; today the menu was pumpkinsoup, a salad with two falafelpatties, tea and fresh juice(you can choose what kind) for CLP. 3900,-

Although it doesn't look like much, we were superstuffed. I'm not that big of an eater but my boyfriend is and even he was stuffed due to the falafel patties.

Food was fresh and tasty. Service kind.

Pros: Friendly service, Filling, Food fresh and tasty

Cons: Very small with 3 tables only

no tan bueno

La verdad es que el lugar es muy chiquito, he tenido que llevarme la comida porque no hay espacio para sentarse. La comida falta de sabor, si bien se jactan de ser comida saludable no logran satisfacer el sabor. Las porciones son algo pequeñas y los precios de algunas cosas elevados

Pros: good location

Cons: taste, tiny place, flavor

Not vegan

Not vegan despite what the menu says. It lists honey (“miel” in Spanish) on the non dairy milk page and the shop sells eggs. Furthermore, the cookies in the jar are not vegan according to the person who worked there. Breakfast was OK, not that you'll have many choice in Valpo anyway.

Nice people, inexpensive lunch, organic fruits

Vitaminica Portena is a small grocery store that offers different organic and natural products, also some organic fruits and vegetables that are really delicious.

They also offer breakfeast, a good and inexpensive lunch, fruit juices and very good vegan brownies.

The people that work there are really nice and can also provide you with some information about healthy alimentation.

Pros: Friendly people, Cheap and good lunch (menu), sells organic fruits and vegetables

Cons: sometimes not enough place

Nice Location

We've been there and had the menu of the day. Everything is vegan and it's a nice location with friendly staff.
We were not overwhelmed by the taste. Their cuisine is creative enough, it just didn't suit our taste. The almond milk which they make should go through a nutmilk filter before being served and the cookies tasted like they were from christmas. :-) (it's almost march)
However, the vegan browny was excellent!

Pros: Friendly, All Day Breakfast, Brownie

Cons: Taste, Toilets
