Good Coffee, Great Atmosphere!

Nice Cafe close to where the cruise ships dock. We stopped here on our way back from shopping and it was a nice place to relax and have some drinks and bakery treats before getting back on this ship. Pros: -Atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable. -Great location for cruise guests. Easily within... read more

Loved the creative wraps and sandwiches that Barefoot Buddha had to offer. Their juice blends were also exciting. The first time we checked out the place we ordered a tuna wrap, a sweet potato wrap & fresh juice.Both food & beverages were very impressive. The staff was friendly and the location was right across the street from Havensight mall. The... More

I ate here just last week while on a port call from my Carnival cruise. The Barefoot Buddha is a short walk from the cruise terminal. It's across from the pharmacy. Locals will gladly point out where this is. The menu is quite extensive, the atmosphere is quite nice. They do offer wifi for 5.00 I believe it is. While... More

Excellent menu, friendly service and delicious coffee! Organic, vegan and high protein offerings. Better selections than you'll get than those higher end coffee shops... The vibe is really cool and down to earth! Enjoy!

My fiancé and I ate brunch here after it was recommended to us by a local. Since I read reviews that this place is mostly only visited by locals and cruise ship crew, we had high hopes! The young girl who helped us at the counter was a bit rude considering it was our first time there and was unfamiliar... More

This is the place to go if you're a fan of organic coffee, smoothies, paninis, soups… and vege-vegan options! Sit inside and enjoy your meal or drink while locals are looking for their mail (as the post office is right at the entrance and a bit messy… possibly because of the holiday season…). Really a must stop from all the... More

I have frequented barefoot buddha for years being a local on island. Actually was there the day before for lunch. To be fair I had a tofu stifry which was awesome but my girlfriend ordered a beet salad to go and there were no beets on it when she opened it. On this day we arrived at 2:50 knowing they... More

I always go to Barefoot Buddha for the "Veg out" wrap & kale and banana smoothie. Also I love the gluten free coconut brownies...everything is made fresh here & you can tell! Love this place!

I work on a cruise ship and we dock here every other week, I go to barefoot every single time. The environment is so relaxed and happy, and not that many guests from the ship go to the area, which is nice to escape being "crew" for a while. I always had a Reeses freeze and a wrap of some... More
