When I first found the Sweet Pea, its quaint appearance threw me off -- but I'm so glad I tried the food. It's consistently delicious and I've had several great meals there, but today's special was exceptional: three soft corn tortillas with sautéed tempeh, peppers, and onions, topped with local sunflower sprouts, cilantro, cucumbers, and peanut dressing. Served with side... More

The owner made a big deal and not courteous when I asked for the gravy to be on the side for poutine. Please realize that you have a business because of the customers and it is important to be nice to them for the wellness of your business. Previously, this owner was denying the fact that her tempeh reuben was... More

This humble little restaurant consistently serves excellent vegan fare that canivores and herbivores will find satisfying. Sunday brunch is particularly good and the staff are very courteous and attentive.

I was in Tallahassee for a couple days. I found two AMAZING vegan restaurants using my Happy Cow app – Sweet Pea being one of them. Sweet Pea is fantastic. It has a really cool, cheerful vibe to it. All the workers are young and friendly and welcoming. The inside (there is indoor and outdoor seating) has a charm about... More

So we have been to sweet pea about three times. We always get something different and we are always happy with the food flavor, quality and the fact it's vegan. My husband has gotten the quesedilla and I got the black bean burger as well as the vegan reuben. The reuben was better than the burger and the fries are... More

Sweet pea is the only restaurant I go to when I eat out. Everything is local, often organic and always Delicious! The owner is very creative and everything on the menu is so good! I have never been dissatisfied with my meal. My favorite thing about sweet pea is the amazing vegan baked goodies they have every week. Cookies, brownies,... More

Count on this place to consistently deliver creative and largely locally sourced yummy food. The poutine and Reuben are my favorites!

It is true Sweet Pea is small and has a small menu, but you won't be disappointed with the taste! I take new, non vegetarian people all the time and they love it, too. They have GF options for those who can't eat wheat. People come in and ask what's most popular and are told, "everything on the menu". I've... More

The Sweet Pea Cafe is a very small vegan restaurant with really good food. Little strange location because it is next to a meat market, but the food was excellent and plentiful. Parking is tight and the outside could use some cleaning up. Inside is very tight quarters and the cooking odors could be a bit much, but the picnic... More

Call me picky, but after reading all of these reviews, I cannot believe we ate at the same restaurant. I appreciate their efforts to create an affordable, vegan restaurant here in Tallahassee, but this café was quite a disappointment. The menu is limited. I do not eat grains and discovered the black bean burger had wheat in it. It did... More
