I was thrilled when Sweet Pea Cafe opened a few years back and am excited to go there a few times each month for lunch. I appreciate so much that a place like this exists, let alone a mile or two down the road from where I live. The Tempeh Reuben is the crown jewel of Sweet Pea; it's what... More

Went there for a late lunch. I had the black bean burger, which was really good, left me wanting more. They have good hummus and a variety of salads and sandwiches which seem very good. Don't expect decor or any fancy furniture. The place has a DIY feel, and honestly doesn't look very appetizing at first look. But, I'm glad... More

I am a meat eater, but I have to say I was amazed at how good the food was. I love biscuts with sausage gravy. I had their soy biscuts with a mushroom gravy, IT WAS AMAZING! I love little hole in the wall places, and this is a gem. I have to say I was not crazy about having... More

Went here after finding it on yelp. It is your typical "hole in the wall" kind of place as you drive by it, and see that it is right next to a meat shop. The place does look a bit run down, but my girlfriend and I had a very pleasant experience with the food. She had a Tempeh Reuben... More

I am not a Vegan, but I do not miss a chance to eat here when I am in Tallahassee. The food is so good!! If I were able to cook vegan food like this, I might be able to be converted! This is a family favorite for sure!

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
