Vegan cozido azores


Sustainable Azorean Gastronomy, championing vegetarian and vegan dining experiences. Join us for a sustainable, local and delicious dinner here at The Solar Branco Eco Estate at our unique restaurant concept, The Green Pantry.

Our food and name is inspired by the rolling green hills of São Miguel. All of our main ingredients are sourced from the island or surrounding islands as we showcase the local produce sourced from local producers in each dish that we serve you. Our cuisine is always fresh, changing with each cycle of food production, meaning our menu changes with the four seasons we enjoy here in the Azores.

Please note our dinners are small, specially prepared experiences and are strictly by reservation only. We are unable to take walk-ins. No babies or Children under 16 are admitted.

Coming to the Azores is all about connecting with nature. And enjoying some of the unique experiences that these islands have to offer. One of the most unique and exciting things to enjoy is a meal cooked in a volcano. We serve a modern interpretation, using fresh local seasonal ingredients and a special blend of herbs and spices delivering a delicious and refined twist. As featured on RTP TV’s 100% Portugal.

Vegetarian Sushi & Gin

Want to enjoy sushi but without the seafood? We have the answer here at The Green Pantry, and it is every bit as delicious as traditional sushi. And you can take that as true, as Ali Bullock, owner of The Solar Branco Eco Estate is allergic to shellfish and so helped Joana on the vegetarian version! Please let us know at the time of booking.

Advance booking required. A minimum of 6 people required.

Farmer's market (Thurs)

Guests are welcome to join us at the Santana Farmers Market each Thursday around 10am as we walk round purchasing fresh produce. This is a local market located in Riberia Grande which is often is overlooked by visitors to the island. A true delight to visit and should not be missed.



Mercado da Graça

Located in the center of Ponta Delgada you will find Mercado da Graça or Grace´s Market. Everything is sold here from Azorean pineapples to fresh fruit and vegetables for both consumers and restaurants. You can also find butchers and fishmongers on the side areas of the market selling regional produce. And not to be missed is the “Cheese King,” serving local cheeses from each of the islands.

Grow your own

There is nothing better than eating your own fruit and vegetables grown in your own garden! It is much easier than you think and with this in mind we have created a gardening group on Facebook, Azores Gardeners. With people ready to help, encourage and advise as well as plant swap events. What are you waiting for?
