Great Vegetarian

This is a very small cafe attached to a health food store. The sandwiches we had on two occasions were really good. I highly recommend this for vegetarians and vegans. They have limited seating but we always had a place as a lot of locals do take out.

Weather you are a disciplined vegan or simply someone who leans that way, if you are in Key West, a trip to the Sugar Apple should be considered obligatory. Philip and Tina who started this a quarter century ago have not only created a successful business, they created a social setting where people like to linger and enjoy the friendly... More

The lunch was not up to this outfit's usual fare. The vegetable smoothie drink was pretty bad, I did not finish it. I'll try again next year.

Good selection of organic products. I was able to find a good selection of non-dairy milk to bring back to our hotel to have with my coffee. Good supplement selection too.

What a find. Do not miss The Sugar Apple when you visit Key West. We had wheat grass and smoothies but the food looks excellent! Must go back. Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Read some excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and visited this place during our recent trip to Key West. I felt they were just okay. They have some vegetarian options but level of service and food quality strictly mediocre (best rating I can give). Smoothies are good so may be stop for them on a hot morning or afternoon. Hate to say... More

This is a fantastic local place which has a plethora of organic groceries/dry goods and holistic medicines. The attached restaurant is adorable and cozy with an array of vegetarian options available including yummy fresh smoothies!

We stopped in for an early morning smoothie, which was delicious. Staff were very pleasant, especially Tabby & Lucas. Watched other food being prepared and expect we will return a couple more times during this visit to Key West. Large variety of health food items on the shelves with knowledgeable staff willing to assist.
