Vegan Guide Lisbon – Part 1: Eat

In Lisbon there is really a lot to see, to eat and to do. In addition, you can stay cheaply in a broad range of low-budget hostels. And in the surrounding area there are also some treasures to discover. As all of this information and insider tips are beyond the scope of a blog post, we have sorted them into the following five categories and divided them into five individual articles:

  1. Eat
  2. Explore
  3. See
  4. Sleep
  5. Surroundings

Our Lisbon video

Let’s start with the first part, the other four will follow in the next days.

Eat.

Since there is a lot of vegan food in the Região de Lisboa, we have created this Google Maps map for a better overview. On the basis of the numbers you can retrace which café/restaurant we’re talking about and go there yourself. Numbers 1-9 and 34-36 can be found in the fifth part about the surroundings of Lisbon.

Cafés

The first café we visited in Lisbon was The Therapist (number 11 on the Vegan Map) at the LX Factory. This is an alternative creative island on a former factory site, where it is teeming with agencies, studios, cafés, bars, restaurants and small shops. It is also the venue for theaters, concerts, exhibitions and workshops, but more on that in the third part of the Lisbon series. In any case, The Therapist is one of these cafés, offering not only sweet and savory vegan specialties, but also various workshops, courses, alternative healing methods and therapies.

Not far away is also the A Mesa Café (number 12 on the Vegan Map), which offers a vegan brunch that leaves nothing to be desired: savory tapioca crêpe, vegane cheese rolls, hummus, guacamole, soy yogurt with muesli, freshly squeezed juices, fruit and banana bread. Everything homemade and gluten-free! The brunch can be enjoyed all day, but for the little hunger there are also some individual vegan dishes. At the end we had another açaí smoothie bowl, also very delicious.

    1. Oh, we’re sorry to hear that :/ Vegan(-friendly) restaurants and cafés are a very quickly changing sector, so we guess there are also alreay a few new ones. In general, luckily there are more opening than closing ones 🙂
