Lisbon is showing a lot of plant-based love these days. Naked is one of the city’s hotspots. It’s natural and flexitarian with stacks of vegan and vegetarian options.  Plus, fruit packed ice-lollies don’t come better than this!

The setting

Naked is across from the Jardim do Príncipe Real. It’s a pretty tiled building with glass hatches opening onto the street so the perfect stop for a smoothie or an ice-lolly.

The space

Even though it’s more of a grab and go, the walls are decorated with copies of classical artwork following the Naked theme.

There’s a pastel pink counter where a selection of their glorious cakes are displayed.

Little things that make a difference

One of the founders is Miguel Júdice, author of The 500 Hidden Secrets of Lisbon, so Naked suggest scenic picnic spots across Lisbon including the Botanical Gardens or the staircase of the National Museum of Natural History. 

The fresh juice test

There’s a choice of cold pressed juices, wheatgrass shots and kombucha. It was a steamy hot July day and we had a cold-pressed green juice and a deliciously creamy beetroot latte.

What we ate

There’s a great choice of  salads, soups, bowls, cakes and even ceviche and codfish for the non-veggies.

Naked stocks Paletaria artisan sorbet ice pops. As it was hot, we just had to try five flavours and they were some of the best we have ever tried.

We especially loved the mixed berry and strawberry.

What we go back for…

A healthy picnic for the park and the ice lollies. We didn’t try all the flavours!

Juice  €3.5
