BEST store and eatery

I researched this shop before we traveled and was determined to visit. It was just up our ally. I got the falafel burger and my husband got the hummus wrap. Both were delicious. Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Beautiful store!!

I stumbled upon Food For Thought yesterday, while waiting for our bikes to get outfitted nearby. The staff was amazing and their smoothies were the BEST! Made to order!

As a mostly vegan family, before we left, we looked for a vegan-friendly place on Marathon. This was the only restaurant that came up. As you can imagine, the Keys are heavy on the seafood. Food for Thought had an extensive selection of vegan options, and we all enjoyed our meals. My younger son (who still enjoys dairy & seafood),... More

Traveling can be difficult for vegan/veggies - Food for Thought was such a welcome find. Nice menu, and it's in a store that sells all kinds of health food stuff. Highly recommend!

Oh those walnut meatballs! Delicious food and speedy service. A very friendly place and an oasis of veggie-ness amid all the fish and steak. Made a lovely change from pizza and carnivore enjoyed it too. Give it a try!

We love the healthy menu of fresh produce and organic foods. The chemical-free body and hair products are super. Good supply of gluten- free and organic food products. Unique supply of books, candles, cards, etc. Knowledgable and friendly employees. Peaceful experience relaxing with a drink and book . Great place to unwind.

This is half health food, supplement, book store ...and half an organic, vegetarian and vegan casual café with smoothies. If you are looking for a healthy fresh option after all that fried fish, try here. Went there twice during our stay for lunch – had a burrito, and a quinoa salad. Felt like I did something good for my body.
