Love this little Gem in Key West! This is not only a place for a quick bite, but also a small organic grocery store. I had a very simple breakfast of smashed avocado on toast, my husband had a breakfast burrito (very good) and the coffee and smoothies were delish as well. If you want to get away from the... More

All organic, local stuff. My veggie wrap was so tasty; the toasted pumpkin seeds added lovely crunch, nice mix of veggies. Chicken salad was good. We LOVED the cold brewed coffee too. But the smoothie, with mango/banana/almond breeze/honey ($8.50) may have been pricey--but it was AMAZING.

Date &Thyme is situated on Fleming Street, in part of the residential area of Key West and close to the main high street and the sea. The premises were once a petrol station and the decor is therefore basic yet functional. Date & Thyme are both a shop and a cafe. The shop offers a broad range of organic and... More

Very fresh, organic, healthy food. Interesting menu. Order inside and eat at tables outside. Very casual.

Enjoyed a quick breakfast with the family. Simple, organic food prepared in a healthy way. Not inexpensive BUT you get what you pay for --as they say. I enjoyed the paleo plate--sautéed kale, zucchini, yams, onions, scrambled eggs topped with pesto. :)

It is so nice to find places that cater to a plant-based diet and we ate here every day of our vacation. Wonderful, fresh, not to pricy.

We have been to this place a couple of times and it's fantastic. Healthy, 'clean' food. You can easily get organic, vegan, paleo, whatever your special needs/wants are. Food is very flavorful. This time I got the Indian Summer Salad, which was awesome. My husband was pleased with his tuna wrap. There are outdoor, shaded tables and benches to eat.... More

This place serves beautiful, organic food (vegetarian, gluten free, meat options) and makes the best smoothies. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Also there's a little cute shop there where you can stock up. It's the perfect break from the somewhat fatty American food that you get everywhere in the States.

First came here in early December 2012 and loved it so much I brought my parents and in turn then loved it too. It became our to-go place ever morning for over a week. We still always spoke very fondly of it over the years. We finally met up again in KW for a few days and were so excited... More

In these days of dubiously "organic" and vegan cuisine, Help Yourself does it right in a non-dogmatic scrumptious love of healthy food. Whether you're shopping to cook elsewhere or enjoying the on-sight al fresco sit-around, the food is unfailingly delicious. The sheer healthiness of the staff and patrons speaks for itself,
