Veganeats is an oasis for the vegan lovers in town. Although the offer of vegetarian places has grown both in quantity and quality in the last few years, there are still few spots that cater specifically to vegans (that besides being vegetarian, do not use any animal products and by-products). But whether you are converted vegan, a reluctant meat eater or even if you do love your steaks, this is definitely a good option for a light, homemade meal.
When entering, it feels like you’re going into a friend’s place, as Celia and her daughter – the two lovely women entrepreneurs behind the counter – will make you feel right at home. They will take the time to explain what’s in each option in the menu (varies daily, but you will always have a quiche) and will bring you some tea, on the house. You must not leave without trying one (or more) of their desserts and a “meia de leite”, a Portuguese-style latte, but with hazelnut or almond. If you have a dinner and want to bring something special, they prepare quiches, pies and desserts to take away.
They opened recently, but the business is already supporting a couple of social causes, such as “take a book and donate” for one of the charities they select monthly. It is a relaxed place, they often have live music and if you are up for a jam session, the instruments are there for you to play with.
