A new wave of vegetarian restaurants, cafes and inns is flooding Portugal. In 2009 the Lonely Planet guide to Portugal stated that Portugal is a difficult country for vegetarians. This has drastically changed. Many new vegetarian venues have recently opened and continue to open and not only in the big cities such as Lisbon and porto.
Even in our small village of Almocageme, Centro Tinkuy (sse them on Facebook) is serving delicious vegan meals.
The wonderful Gallery/Events venue Flores Do Cabo www.floresdocabo.pt will be opening a vegetarian cafe in the Spring. Currently they are offering a wide selection of cooking classes, meditation/yoga/tantra workshops. Flores do Cabo is also selling a wonderful selection of organic artisan sourdough breads, artisan organic olive oil, honey and more, besides their selection of wonderful art, unique furniture, antiques and floral arrangemnets.
