We have been to Simon's a few times and always enjoyed the vairied healthy selections for breakfast and lunch. Simon and the wait staff are super friendly and the food is always fresh and tasty. Great if you are vegan, but there are plenty of meat selections too.

But equally yummy for non! Super fresh food and the fruit drinks are wonderful. Don't miss the black bean soup. Can be crowded so try some off hours.

This place is awesome and the staff are great. This is going to be my favorite place to eat. Girlfriend and I love the vegan chocolate cake, and the cappuccino is wonderful and strong the way we like it.

We have eaten at Simons 1/2 doz times due to the fresh quality of food. This was the 1 st time we were truly disappointed by the service ( not the food). They usually serve a PC of bread with the salads which I had asked for gluten free. No problem just an up charge of .50 . So when... More

One of those cafes that makes you feel you're doing your bit for the planet by eating here. That aside, the food is good, fresh, and mostly organic. Get's very crowded in season at lunch time -- expect to wait. Also open for dinner, but haven't tried that.

The food is outstanding and so is the service. It's a great place to go with a mix of friends when some want vegetarian/vegan and some don't. The Santa Fe sandwich--available as a panini I or a wrap--is delicious. They roast their own turkey and put lots of it in. My husband said it was one of the best wraps... More

I have been to Simon's numerous times, always for lunch. I tried several of their menu choices, and several of their smoothies. It is all good. Lots of locals know the place, and when I came in with friends who were still unfamiliar with Simon's, they also became regulars. We no longer live in Sarasota, but whenever I go back,... More

Moe had the Chicken Salad and loves it there along with a piece of dense freshly made bread. She was very happy. The food here is hearty, delicious and served by Lisa our... More

This very popular midday eatery has a lot of good things to tantalize all tastes, but especially vegetarians. The soups are wonderful (the jerk fish soup is outstanding) and the burgers and salads are delicious.

In a shabby strip mall, on a heavily trafficked road, located twixt an adult fun store and an empty store front, stands this outstanding temple to innovative fast food, the menu for which favours vegetarian or vegan recipes (but not exclusively so). I would say that it is a Floridian best kept secret, but the lunchtime hordes which descend on... More
