Not as good as we expected based upon other reviews, but serviceable. Pancakes are made with spelt flour but were denser than they should have been. Grits were boring. Omelettes, however, were fabulous. Service is good.

I would like to tell you what the food was like, but after being the only table in the restaurant (one table was paying as we left) and waiting 11 minutes without as much as someone walking up to our table we got up and left. First time trying this place and the last time we will try. The one... More

My husband and I stopped at this place on our way to the airport after a fun weekend in St. Augustine. After a few days of eating decadent meals around the city, we were in need of something a little lighter for the trek home. Manatee Cafe truly hit the spot. I ordered the hummus and tabbouleh pita with green... More

I like eating here every time I visit St Augustine. The two eggs breakfast is good. I love the hummus and pita here. Also, the pita sandwiches are great too. This place serves organic and all natural vegetarian dishes at reasonable prices, so if your not into that type of diet then you may not care for this place. I'm... More

Family went here and each ordered different breakfast items. I think a lot of people give high ratings because it is different. The omelets have unusual items and personally I think a lot of people fall for the hype. It was reasonable in price but ultimately I was not inspired by the taste. Maybe the items are fresh but cabbage,... More

I've been three times now to the Manatee Cafe for breakfast. Each time I've tried something different, and I'm always happy. The food is fresh, is made to order, and tastes fantastic. The service is great. The prices are great. If you get there and have to wait, just wait -- you won't be sorry. Super fresh sprouts, perfectly ripe... More

Delighted to find healthy food in the south! I had the breakfast burrito, and it was extraordinary. Don't miss it. Low fat, healthy, and so tasty.

We don't live in St. Augustine, but whenever we are heading there, we try to get to the Manatee Cafe. The food really is delicious and fresh. You can tell they really care about what they are serving. And, let me say that we're not vegetarians, but we do eat vegetarian often. This restaurant has something for everyone. It's very... More
