YUM

Black bean burger is my favorite dish here ( as a vegan ).. Also they always have gluten free options which I totally appreciate. The beers on tap are always phenomenal. Staff is so friendly, and the owners are sweethearts. Love this place, and you will too.

If you love breakfast beyond the standard bacon and eggs head to Simon's Coffee House! We are always on the lookout for a great breakfast and were thrilled to find Simon's. The atmosphere is casual but cute and they have taken care with the small details like a fun collection of colorful coffee mugs. Its always a good sign when... More

A weekday before noon and the place was jammed. Very nice atmosphere in and out, unique food choices, good service, clean restrooms, reasonable prices. Try the raw lasagna. Wow!

Food was good, the staff very friendly and it has "expresso" coffee for European tourists like me, There are many choices for lunch, between huge sandwiches and soups. I recommend for anyone who wants a casual meal. It closes at 4pm and doesn't serve dinner.

I've been to Simons too many times to count for both breakfast and lunch and always enjoyed what I've eaten never had a bad meal. The food has always been delicious but as other reviewers have mentioned it isn't cheap. It is fresh and it is delicious so you pay for it. Many of the staff have been there forever... More

You would think that the owner would take the tome to read his reviews. I got scrambled eggs last year while here and they were overdone. Not even going to attempt it this year. I'll be at Word of Mouth! Chef needs lessons from them. Fruit needs to be a little fresher; staff should be a little bit nicer as... More

I loved the yogurt parfait and my husband enjoyed his alpine omelette. He said the coffee was good and strong, and unloved my orange juice (although the juice was pretty pricey). We would definitely come back. We plan on getting one of the delicious-looking pastries next time.

Not your typical cafe. We were welcomed by the English owner and seated. Impressed by friendliness and speed of service. The menu more New York than Florida, organic, vegetarian dishes along with the standards and specials.
