My children and I were spending the weekend in St. Augustine and we were looking for any local vegan restaurants to dine in during our stay when we found the Manatee Cafe. I am SO glad we did! We went there for breakfast 2 days in a row, we loved it so much! We would have gone back again if... More

Went to eat veggie dishes for my birthday! I had the breakfast burrito my friend had the veggie wrap. Cannot say enough the portions are amazing and the waiter was very nice and personable he even sung happy birthday to me and the whole cafe clapped. A must place to eat as always great

The Manatee Cafe was reccomended very highly to us by a local. They did not mention that it is a vegan/vegitarian friendly place. None the less it was very good. The service was so-so. I also found it pricey for a simple breakfast.

This is the rare restaurant that's both good AND healthy. I would highly recommend their veggie omelette - it was wonderful!

I brought my very avid meat eater fiancé here, he was beyond skeptical bordering outright rude. I have never seen someone change their tune so quickly. As soon as our food hit the table he could not stop complimenting everything. We now frequent manatee cafe on a regular basis and WE BOTH LOVE IT!

I wanted to order one of everything! Tried veggie Reuben, tofu stirfry, noodle bowl, miso soup and basil dressing for the salad. Excellent. Wish we lived closer!

Small but the tables move pretty quickly, though we didn't feel at all rushed. Food combinations terrific - sweet potatoes and cabbage in an omelet? You bet! Menu not extensive, but what they have is organic, fresh, hot to the table, and great tasting. Fun manatee paintings / photos on the wall would make it fun for kids. All waitstaff... More

My sister and I go to Florida every year and found this cafe last year! The staff suggested two of the most popular dishes, the Vegetarian Burger and the Breakfast Burrito. Oh, my gosh! What amazing flavors! We came back by a second time on our way home last year. This year, 2013, we made a special detour just to... More

Went there for breakfast on a Sunday morning and not very busy. The server must of been in a bad mood and didn't provide great service and what topped everything off were the tiny portions. Definitely wouldn't return again.
