Baobab juice bar  casa vegetariana serves seitan

"Beautiful food, authentic vegetarian. Not simply pasta on a plate as most vegetarian options in places. Vegetarian protein is important in each dish. Lovely spot for lunch. Well done!"
Miriam Healy, visitor of Baobab juice bar & casa vegetariana

Andrea is one of the founders of Baobab. Her reason for opening a vegan bar is first and foremost ethical grounded. This is already clear when you see the place from a distance. At the door, there’s a sign that says: “Animals are our friends. We don’t eat our friends.” Besides that, it’s just a whole lot healthier to be a vegan. But Baobab is also there in order to create more consciousness in the world. The founders believe that a vegan lifestyle is the future for our planet and there’s no way back. They notice that people are becoming increasingly more conscious about a sustainable lifestyle.
