I was looking forward to coming to the Cafe as a place I could get a healthy meal. I was really glad that we are here! I had a veggie sandwich with eggplant my wife had a veggie sandwich with artichoke. We both had the bean side salad and we shared the polenta sticks. Everything was very fresh and... read more

I had lunch at The Café while visiting Key West. They have a few good vegan options including a delicious vegan key lime tart.

Very cool place, excellent vegetarian menu options, not to mention a pretty decent beer list and good fresh made juices. Stumbled onto this place by accident, very glad we did!

What a treat to go into a restaurant and not have to search for the lone vegetarian item on the menu. or have to 'make something up' by ordering a menu item without the meat (while paying full price of course.) This Cafe has a full menu of interesting and delicious vegetarian dishes. There are a couple of seafood items... More

Not many vegan choices in Key West, but if you are hungry and want a fantastic meal you need to check out The Cafe. Great service and very tasty food. Met people that were there 3 days in a row, and they weren't even Vegans.

My daughter hasn't seen a full menu that she could order from in a long time! The food here was AMAZING!! Even the lemonade was the best i've ever had. We were all stuffed but had to desert because, again my daughter hasn't had that option in forever! That chocolate mocha cake was the best! We will be back!!

It was my first time at a vegetarian only restaurant. I ordered the veggie burger which was quite delicious. My buddy ordered the lasagna and he loved it. The service was great.

We went there for lunch and a beer. I had a sandwich and my wife had a stuffed portobello mushroom. Both were extremely good! Great friendly service and would go again in a heart beat!

We eat the nutritarian and vegan way as much as possible, so we were delighted to find many good options on the Cafe's menu. The food and drinks were delicious! Almond milk chai iced tea, kale Caesar salad, curried seitan "chicken" salad sandwich with seeded multigrain bread, all excellent, fresh, packed with nutrients and great taste and presentation. We're going... More

We'd only been in Key West for a day and a half and already we were wondering if we'd ever find more than fried seafood, bar fare, and usual heavy meals. We took a side street jaunt and found this wonderful oasis of freshness called The Cafe. The atmosphere upon entering this fine establishment is enough to sell you; comfortable... More
