This restaurant seems to be now called SHANTI CAFE. It is still on the second story of the quiet shopping mall. If you take the stairs instead of the elevator you actually have to go 2 flights. We had the set menu which was delicious and creative and generous. Very friendly owner who had no English, but it doesn't really matter as you just choose from either a bigger or smaller set menu. Would thoroughly recommend for Vegans or Non-vegans. Great value.

We had to look for a while before we found this little cafe, which is hidden away in a fairly abandoned shopping gallery. The lights are a bit bright, but the food is really great - on our first visit we had a full menu, soup, salad, main course, desert, tea, and fresh fruit juice for 7,50 Euros. It was all vegan and extremely delicious. The owner is a lovely old bloke who makes the whole place feel warm and familiar. We checked out a few places and this really is the best place for fresh, organic, vegan food.

The waiter (I think he owns the place as well) was very friendly, the food was delicious and we ate there two times (we only stayed two days in Coimbra). It was not easy to find the place.
Very special was the dessert of the day (a very nice vegan tiramisu).

I was extremely happy to find a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Coimbra. The place is perhaps not the easiest to find, back of a shopping centre, on the 2nd floor but this place is definitely worth a visit. The waitresses spoke English and were passionate about the food and happily to explain each dish to me. Unfortunately, the restaurant is not as busy as it should because of its location and also because of the mentality of the locals, so If you do visit Coimbra, please show you’re support and visit Molho de Brocolos.

Considering we've found very little vegetarian food eating out on our trip in Portugal, we were delighted to find this place. A great range of certified organic vegan food plus a couple of vegetarian dishes with egg and one meat-based meal. The location isn't great, tucked away on the 2nd floor at the back of a slightly run-down shopping centre, but the food and staff make up for it. Very nice to see that the staff really care about the food - where it comes from, how healthy it is, how it's prepared, how it's grown, etc - and the service is excellent, the waitress explained everything on the menu to us in English and provided a gluten-free variation on one of the dishes. They even had vegan whipped cream (aka chantilly)! Loved it.
