Fresh salads

I was surprised by the quality of the food, the soup was delicious and the salad was so rich and tasty . I loved it and will be back for more to look for some books and enjoy a nice simple fresh lunch. Thank you!

Went here for lunch and almost died at how amazing their sandwiches are! My husband and I shared the cashew meatball wrap and the portobello burger. We got a pint of coconut milk ice cream to go afterwards and it was incredible. They have an entire health food store and tons of organic, vegan and vegetarian foods. Places like this... More

It's inside of a bookstore which is cool, you can shop around while you wait for your food to be ready. The service is good and they have delicious smoothies!

We were looking for some vegetarian food in the Keys (which is pretty hard!) when we stumbled across this place. The women in the main part of the store were just lovely -- really warm, helpful, and friendly. However -- the people who worked in the Café were super-grumpy! Really unresponsive, unhelpful, cold. The falafel burger was excellent. The juices... More

This health food store has a small but terrific selection of vegetarian and vegan food as well as a small luncheon area with a few tables. The menu is mostly soups and wraps and everything is fresh and prepared to order. They also have different beverages, such as coffee, tea, and vegetable drinks. We have had grilled vegetable wraps and... More

You can only eat so much seafood and key lime pie (neither of which this place offers) but if you if you want something healthy and fresh this organic cafe is a life-saver. And well priced. We had breakfast, lunch and carry-out dinner. It's primarily vegan but breakfast options include eggs.
