Great food, but heavy with big portions! Choose wisely. We ordered a sandwich, pizza and shared a soup. The food came with a big portion of fries and a side salad. We liked the food, it's great for vegetarians. I recommend the watermelon and cucumber juice! Don't try the apple-tonic - we didn't like the taste at all. The decor... More

When we first dined here 3 years ago, everyone was impressed with the quality of the food and this was the only "must do" for this trip for me. It did not disappoint. Again we kicked off with drinks & Truffled French Fries and the fries were a great start. A nice assortment of drinks and craft beers. All of... More

We went twice during our stay in Key West, and both times were phenomenal. the food was so good my wife is thinking of becoming a vegetarian. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, the beer selection was very good, and the food was the best. The Cafe will be our first dinner stop when we go back!

We had dinner here tonight and I have to say this was the best veggie burger that I have ever had! The service was great and food excellent, we won't hesitate to come back. Only tiny niggle was that it was a little chilly in the restaurant but that's probably just our English roots!

I was excited to try the fresh juice at The Cafe. When my Crohn's doesn't allow me to eat, I like to get nutrients from fresh vegetable juices. This restaurant was one of the closest "juice bars" to our timeshare near the marina so I was excited to try it. Although the juice was delicious, it was pre-made. When you... More

As you may have noticed, we try to be very sensitive to dietary needs. We juice large batches fresh every morning and sell out everyday. Rest assured your juice was nutrient dense. We offer 2 juice/ vegetable blends everyday, although, we are not a "juice bar" by any means, nor do we claim to be… just a restaurant that believes... More

If traveling with diners of varied styles, meats, veggie & vegan, The Cafe is a good place to try. Their clams were so well prepared my husband insisted we go back again... he is neither vegan nor vegetarian. I had a wonderful brunch meal and went back for another of the choices only to learn it is only served on... More

It is so difficult to find a delicious meal for a vegetarian when eating out. Was really happy to be recommended to The Café in Key West. I tried their Fig and Gorgonzola Pizza with caramelized onions, walnuts and spinach. The toppings were a great combination but the pizza dough was the best. Even their desert's (carrot cake - totally... More

I am vegan and my husband is vegetarian . We went here for lunch 2Xs and dinner once. I loved the noodle bowl! The seitan chicken salad was great for lunch. The atmosphere is cool. The only thing I can say negatively is they need to teach cleanliness to their servers. One server was putting her hands in the glasses... More

Kind of an odd observation. However, directly inside the kitchen is a hand wash sink, which your server surely used after busing tables and before carrying food to customers. Rest assured the staff is properly trained in sanitation and prevention of food born illness. It is great to be conscious of such things, but please ask to speak to a... More
