Vegan, vegetarian, or seafood..

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... read more

Great for vegans! Many delicious menu items. I ate here several times during my week long trip to Key West. Loved the falafel wrap, the kale salad, the bok choy, & for my birthday, the carrot cake. Heaven! The location is nice. The ambiance is great. I highly recommend giving it a try. Enjoy!

The list of menu items at this place is wide and really interesting. I had kyoza dumplings which were lovely.......we wanted to try lots of other things too but were simply too full. The restaurant is pretty bohemian and very casual so no need to wear you best clothes - but the food. WOW! Service was great and the staff... More

If I'd discovered this restaurant at the beginning of my stay in Key West, I'd've eaten all my meals there. great menu and a terrific staff. The diverse menu offers something for everyone from vegans and vegatarians and everyone else, too. Specially thanks to Kaleb and Bernice for their wonderful table service and menu recommendations that made this the best... More

I frequently eat vegetarian, but my wife and daughter usually don't. We ate lunch here and all three loved it. I had a grilled eggplant sandwich on chibatta bread that was out of this world. My daughter had a homemade fruit drink that she loved and my wife had a falafal sandwich she raved about. I wish we had had... More

The menu was so vast with dishes for both vegetarians and meat eaters, that it was hard to decide. We all loved our choices, from veggie sausage quesadilla, to stir fry with seitan to my delicious, homemade falafel special. A bit pricey, but worth it!

The best healthy option at key west!!! Get the edamame or stir or artichoke dip! Also, everyday they have a champagne spritzer tonic it's always good

This is a very nice place with great food, wonderful service and a great beer selection on tap.While mostly visited by woman, men are welcome. Just expect to be one male amongst 10 or more woman. I liked it.

This is fantastic food and unacceptable service. I do not expect to go to a restuarant at 9.15 when the restauranr closes ar 10 and be rushed out of the restuarant. The chef clearly cares as every dish we had was very good. Nonetheless the server asked us within 10 minutes 10 times If we decided what we would like... More

Just had such a good meal at this restaurant that I'm lost for words at the moment! We ordered 4 dishes and shared them between the four of us! It was absolutely amazing. Thoroughly recommend the spinach and artichoke dip and tofu thai green curry (with brown rice). Any veggies and non veggies alike will definitely enjoy this restaurant.
