Good food, Great service, Nice ambience !

We visited 'The Cafe' in June' 2015. The food was mostly great except for the 'Jackfruit' thingy. Menu was not the usual you see in restaurants - very different & new items. Mostly vegetarian but had some seafood on there. My little daughter and my father-in-law loved the food and the drinks... read more

Two dishes were extremely spicy and the waitress didn't tell us when we chose on the menu. They offered to change the dish and they didn't charge us for one of the dishes.

Biscuits and Gravy? YES, PLEASE! How often do vegetarians get to eat B&G? - like...never! The eggs on the side were so flavorful and tasty. The Cafe was a treasure trove of delicious eats with a very diverse menu. I wish we would have found this place on the first day of our trip because we would have eaten here... More

We found this restaurant on our last night in Key West. They had a wide array a vegetarian and vegan options which is nice because of most restaurants I only have one or two options. I had the special lasagna and a small salad. The small salad had a variety of fresh veggies and wasn't all that small. The flavors... More

We like to go here at least twice while visiting. They have the best tasting food and neither of us are vegan or vegetarian. The dishes are big for the price and the staff is very friendly. You don't feel bloated or overly full when you leave and feel like you got a great deal for the price. Perfect for... More

Visiting friends in Key West one of whom is a vegetarian. This was a great place to eat as it caters primarily to the vegan/vegetarian crowd it does have some selections that others would really enjoy. Service was wonderful and attentive. Food was well presented and was delicious. Had a wonderful evening.

Not only the food was awesome but also the service was outstanding. We wanted to order everything of the menu. We had the edamame with sesame oil and sea salt, sweet potatoes fries, falafel sandwich and grill eggplant and pesto. Everything was to die for. Still thinking about the food and looking at the menu to see what I will... More

Loved this place! I visited it twice in a week. We had the artichoke and spinach dip, tofu salad, and falafel pita. Everything was insanely delicious and healthy. Portions are big, so consider splitting with a friend.

Had a totally delicious lunch at The Cafe during a trip to Key West. As vegetarian and vegan travelers it's sometimes difficult to find good places to eat. The Cafe is definitely a great place to eat.. the fresh juices are delicious too!

I'm a vegetarian... Hubby, not so much: thankfully we were both able to find a great meal! The seafood specials are fresh and fabulous. The vegan and vegetarian offerings are original and flavorful. My only criticism would be the chickenless wings. The size of the tofu could be cut smaller to make them more bite size and crispy. Aside from... More
