We were referred to The Cafe by a nice lady we met at an organic grocery driving through the Keys. It did not disappoint. I had one of the specials, the stuffed bell pepper and my friend had the seitan sandwich. His was delicious, the seitan is homemade. My bell pepper was out of this world. I recommend anything with...

This place is the best place to experience comfort and fresh new food. If you are vegetarian then this place has everything for you. I have never seen or heard of the dishes they have come up with here but it is to die for. Completely in love with this place will visit again soon. Thank you

We come to key west every year and this place is always our first stop. High quality food. The "chicken" curry salad sandwich is amazing as well as the fig Gorgonzola pizza. Ps Get the sweet potato fries!

Let me start off with saying meat is the main staple of my diet, but everytime i visit kw i can't wait to eat here. The cold peanut noodles are some of the best I've ever had. Also i always get a sandwich and it's perfect. While I'm not willing to adopt the vegetarian lifestyle, i will for at least... More

Loved finding this super vegan friendly place in the Keys! Great atmosphere, extensive menu, great specials, lots of great drinks (alcoholic and non) to choose from. And vegan key lime pie!! :)

I have dreams about The Cafe. I lived and worked in Key West for several years and there are some great places, but when I want that have-to-close-your-eyes-when-you-bite kind of experience, The Cafe is it. I'm tempted, writing this, to get a plane ticket right now to be there in time for lunch. There are polenta sticks with marinara sauce... More

after going around Key West with our family who are not vegetarian, my husband and I were thrilled to finally get away and head to the cafe. The food is amazing. It did not disappoint. We had lunch so we ate a couple of appetizers and two sandwiches and all of the food was fantastic. I really enjoyed their unusual... More
