I found this cafe on Trip Advisor and it is a gem. The staff is excellent and knowledgeable and both the store and cafe offer a great variety and are well appointed. I will definitely return. My lunch was delish,

This is our thirteenth year to visit Marathon and three years ago, we found Food for Thought. It was tucked away in a strip mall , but we hit the jackpot !!!

Food and service was great. Loved the vegetarian and vegan options. Homemade vegan sour cream was better then the real thing and this was from the carnivore in the party.

For the GF/V traveler, this is a great find! Love the organic store, the selection, and the café options. The prices are all a little high, but organic food on an island is not easy to come by, so... keep that in mind. The staff are all really friendly as well.

What a rare and welcome find! Located inside a health food store the cafe has a limited, yet well planned menu. Great for when you tire of fried entrees and chain restaurants. They also serve coffee, teas and totally natural smoothies (no mixes or added sugar).

Perfect place to find what you need. The store is clean and neat and the staff is very knowledgeable. Abundance of vitamins, food, books, etc. Cafe is delicious, but expect to walk out paying a lot. I have paid close to $20 on lunch just for myself. There is seating inside and outside.

I really appreciate the fact that marathon has a healthy option! This place makes great juices, smoothies, and vegan/vegetarian fare. Not to mention everything is organic and GMO free which is never easy to find. I love stopping in for a juice on the way to the beach!

How exciting to find a restaurant, grocery and bookstore, all organic and healthy in one spot! We really appreciate having a place to go in Marathon that offers gluten-free meals and groceries. The meals are generous, reasonable and delicious.

Forget clothing shopping sprees, head on over to Food for Thought and go crazy over their unique raw, gluten free, and vegan options! I visited the store several times while staying in Marathon to pick up groceries (crackers, raw vegan nut cheeses, coconut yogurt, and of course raw vegan chocolate cake, amongst countless other items!). Each time I visited I... More
