In this space in Póvoa do Varzim everything is thought to give health. The products in the store are organic, vegan, and thinking about giving alternatives to those looking for other options in a location with little offer in this area.

In addition to bulk products, including detergents, they sell products that promote living with less waste. They are also a coffee shop serving a simple menu, 100% vegetarian, homemade and whenever possible with produce from the garden. It serves a simple menu consisting of plate, soup, homemade cakes and some snacks.

The secret here is the love with which it is prepared and the care that everything is vegan, homemade and seasonal.
