On the southern coast of Ibiza, Santa Eulalia beach is famed for its laid-back, indulgent vibe. On Ve Café’s blue-and-white terrace, that ambience is allowed to wash in on the sea breeze. The plant-based menu adds to the feeling of well-being, centring on a range of tempting bowls from breakfast and lunch to early dinner. Smoothies, juices, coffees and desserts are also served in the same vein,
Part of the W Hotel, a venue brand new to Ibiza, this health eatery is open from 9am to 5pm, and strikes guests immediately thanks to its unusual tiered seating and invitingly comfortable furnishings. All this is gathered around the central open kitchen, which bustles all day long beneath giant raffia lampshades.
Out of the kitchen come those fresh, made-to-order bowls: from the Wake Up Bowl with chia pudding, seasonal fruits and blue spirulina to hummus bowls with moreish pita breads to Hot Buddha Bowls of Mexican, Indiain and Thai varieties, there’s so much to choose from. There are vegan burgers, too and even some fishless “seafood” dishes!
Provenance is a source of price here, with a vegetable garden in Santa Eulalia providing much of the produce. Flavour is the key to the menu, with tastebuds popping even as healthy eating remains the absolute leitmotif of the restaurant. Eat-in or take-away, fuel up post-work-out or simply watch the crowds on the nearby promenade; Ve Café is the perfect place to unwind, and eat healthily, all day long.
