Moved to this larger location which is situated next to Hotel Tapindare. A vegetarian snack bar focusing a lot on vegan options since it moved to a larger spot; offers a daily line of soups and quiches, with feijoada on weekends. Have plans on expanding the menu to include more entrees, but currently (Sept 2016) focuses on smaller meals, such as hot dogs, hamburgers, tapioca, pies and cakes, hot chocolate, several juice mixtures, and cheese bread (vegan option included).

Av Ary Valadao Filho 767, Alto Paraiso, Brazil
Cuisine: Vegan-friendly, Indian, Brazilian, Non-veg
Serves meat, vegan options available. Cafe that doubles as restaurant located next to Emporio Santa Maria. During the morning, they work as a cafe attached to the store and have limited options in a separate menu, which includes some meat. In the evening, however, they work as a restaurant and sell only vegetarian or vegan chapatis made with grated potato or cassava that look similar to rosti potatoes or pancakes. Among the many toppings, they have several sweet and savory vegan options. They also serve juices, desserts, acai bowls, and soups that vary. Note from HappyCow: Since they cook meat in the same kitchen, even though this particular listing is vegetarian & vegan only, we are listing it as non-veg.
