I live near this place and crave their food all of the time. Healthy, vegan/vegetarian friendly and really creative casual breakfast and lunch food. Affordable and my favorite place to eat in St Augustine.

Then this is the perfect place. I've yet to eat here and be disappointed. Beautiful food Beautiful staff Really a great... More

Went there for breakfast not knowing what to expect. It was great. Fresh juices. Great healthy breakfast. Have you ever had a tofu ruben? It was really good. Great hot sauce that they sell to take home. Fantastic cookies on the way out.

Having breakfast at Manatee lets you forget about the heavy commercial side of St. Augustine. Forget about going elsewhere unless you are a type A personality and you are in an extreme rush to eat. Share the excellent, healthy food with other health conscious and discerning locals and visitors. We ate here twice since it was so good. We were... More

I love Manatee Cafe! Delicious omelets, pancakes, salads and wraps! Everything I have had here has been made with the freshest ingredients.

The place was nice and clean. We went to lunch and hit the busiest time so the staff was really busy. We enjoyed the food though. Pretty good Vegetarian/Vegan options. I'd go back.

The Manatee Cafe is a low key vegan restaurant; the building is clean, and the staff is friendly. They serve wonderful, organically grown food.

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
