One of my "go-tos" for every KeyWest trip. I have been known to eat here 5 out of 6 meals. It was great to be able to dine somewhere easily with my dietary restrictions

Sweltering humidity, I relented and OK'd stopping here. I actually enjoyed the Portobello salad with shrimp, and husband had Kung Pao. I normally don't eat these types of food, and I am happy to say even I enjoyed eating here.

Was very satisfied with our first meal so we ended up coming again. All four meals were delicious and filling. Decent, right sized, portions and the prices are good. Will definitely come again the next time I'm in town.

Great vegan food, we shared few dishes so we were able to try a bit the menu. Portions are quite big. The vegan key lime cheesecake was really good. Service was great, I can't remember the name of our waiter but he was always smiling...More

If you are wanting to dress up and paint the town red this is the place to start. Entrees 30-50 bucks, drinks 10-12... you get the picture. Nice food, great food, and a beautiful sunset.

Stopped in this little cafe, it looked cute. Sorry, I didn’t do my homework on Trip Advisor. We were delighted with our lunches. I had a simple vegetarian burger but it was full of flavor and my husband loved his fish tacos. Service was excellent.

The Cafe is a wonderful spot for vegetarian/vegan options. The menu is diverse, and the food/entrees are delicious. The desserts are also extraordinary, including upon occasion, vegan birthday cake! :)

My cousin and I dined here solely because they have key lime cheesecake and it’s delicious. We split the Goyza’s and the peanut noodle salad. I was impressed by the goyza but the peanut noodle salad was average. I can make the same at home,...More
