This place kept me alive during my time in Key West! Had to travel there for a wedding and as a vegan, I learned quickly that Key West food, in general, is not very healthy.

The amount of vegan and vegetarian items on the menu was incredible. Every item tasted great - we had the pizza, noodles, curried chicken salad sandwich and all their desserts. Over 4 days we have here 6 times.

Dinner at 'the cafe' was a delight, the food being the star of the show! Relaxed and informal with a great mix of diners. Staff were laid back, in a good way, efficient, warm and welcoming. Portions were absolutely huge. I would recommend this restaurant to all....

We had lunch for the second time and left pleased both times. Parking was not an issue. The staff were very pleasant and the food was presented very elegantly . The ingredients seemed fresh and felt satisfied for the price we paid . This little cafe is a definite must for people whom enjoy healthy delicious food.

A great casual spot with wonderful, healthy food and convenient location. Many selections for the vegetarian, and non-vegetarian alike, and a funky, relaxed Key West vibe.
