The manatee cafe has been a favorite for many years, and it continues to perform. The food is incredible. Eat here if you can!

We've been going to Mantee for the past 7 years and it just keeps getting better! The food is always abundant. The homefries are perfect every time, especially with the homemade hot sauce, and I love how they mix a lot of vegetables you wouldn't normally think of combining together in omelettes, wraps, salads etc. Great for vegetarians and gluten...

I wasn't sure we would like as it's in a strip mall with no character, but the food is very good and was very tasty. Had burrito #2. Very nice taste with sweet potato and sprouts. Will return

We were staying in St. Augustine for a week. Our hotel manager recommended this spot for breakfast/lunch, as I am a vegetarian and my husband leans towards vegetarian food. What a find! We ended up eating here every day and trying something new at each visit. Every meal was better than the last. I think the veggie omelette was the... More

The food was full of flavor and fresh. It was delicious. The smoothie was amazing as well! We had very attentive and fast service. Can't wait to go back to St Augustine to eat here again!

A non-descript little place that serves OUTSTANDING food can best describe the restaurant. Usually we pull into a strip mall, cross our fingers and hope that the food is at least edible. This place is so good, I want to make the 1.5 hour drive back to St. Augustine to try it again. I ordered the Humus Burrito for lunch... More

Seriously great little restaurant just outside historic downtown St Augustine. Had the breakfast burrito with tofu and hash browns. Skye had the same but with eggs and cheese. Best Vegan breakfast I've ever had. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town.

I live near this restaurant and have been a lot. Service sucks. Just awful. Food is great, though, so you should call ahead and pick it up to go. They need to restaff. Same servers have been working here for years without improvement.
