O Botanista: O Botanista´s green interior is filled with plants and the menu focuses on unprocessed vegan food, with most items made in-house. There are breakfast, lunch and snack options, and dinner from Thursday to Sunday. For cake lovers there are plenty of choices as well, and you don’t have to feel that guilty - all cakes and sweets are made without any refined sugar. O Botanista also serves alcohol.

Ao 26: Ao 26 serves different plates daily and offers snack foods like burgers and fries, scones and toasts. Dessert choices include vegan cheesecake, chocolate cake, brownies and mousse. Beverages include natural juices and biological wine.

arkhe: arkhe is a small, privately-owned house led by two restaurateurs who put hospitality in the heart of the craft. The vegan- and vegetarian-inspired cuisine here is
based around the best local and seasonal ingredients. Arkhe is a Michelin Bib Gourmand establishment.

Fauna & Flora: Breakfast / brunch café with many vegan and vegetarian options. Wooden tables and plants make up the decor and the ambiance is warm. It can get quite crowded, as it is a popular spot.

The Green Affair: Inspired by international cuisines, The Green Affair serves plant-based lunch and dinner in a cozy atmosphere. There are also “limited edition” dishes of the day and signature cocktails.

My Mother´s Daughters: Café owned by three daughters and their mother, in Largo de São Sebastião, that serves dishes free from animal products, mostly all organic and enriched with superfoods. Special mention: there is always a “zero waste” starter on the menu
(where yesterday’s leftovers become today’s starter). There are bowls, starters like
hummus with vegetable sticks and cashew crackers and daily specials like mushroom
lasagne or pumpkin quiche.
