My date and I just enjoyed a raw vegan lunch which was very tasty, healthy and abundant. The ingredients are fresh and the servings large enough to take home some for another meal. The wait staff is cheerful and always ready to refill your cup of coffee. There is an entire menu for healthy drinks, all non-alcoholic. Do try the... More

Simon's is super popular in Sarasota. I feel that t's average and very expensive "health" food in a busy place, where if you have to sit outside, the view is a parking lot. The food is just plain, big salads and mediocre sandwiches. And the desserts are everything but healthy, the chocolate chip cookies are inedible. I was served an... More

The only thing that makes me sad at Simon's is when i'm too late to order from the special board! They run out everyday so the earlier in the day you go the better! We eat here at least once a week and there isn't a bad thing on the menu. My kids love the Santa Fe and so many... More

Took a well-deserved day off last week, headed to Simon's for lunch immediately following my massage. I always look froward to their creative daily specials and soup selections. Lucky me I chose the butternut coconut and it was AMAZING! Creamy yet dairy free. So satisfying but also good for you. What more could a girl want? Oh yes, the Greek... More

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
