Great smoothies

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.

Nice to find a healthy place to eat in Marathon. Limited menu and seating inside the shop not very inspiring but the food is fresh and tasty, and I was pleased with the gluten free options. The staff aren't overly friendly nor helpful, when I asked which of their juices or smoothies would suit my sweet-tooth, I was dismissively told... More

I have been going to this place for years, when it was "just" a health food/book store. They are always knowledgeable and care about why you came in, if you need advice. The cafe makes a good place even greater. Every meal there has been a treat, not a sacrifice. Smoothies, sandwiches on this gluten-free bread that's better than regular... More
