Who would have thought! This place was great. We're from the PNW and didn't expect to find this quality and care in the food in Florida! So glad we found this place! Highly recommend it! If you're there for breakfast get the Super Breakfast Wrap!

We stopped by here on our way home from Bahia Honda. What a pleasant, tasty, healthy surprise in a place where otherwise vegetarians have to fend for themselves. We had the pad thai wrap and the falafel burger, and both were excellent. We're looking forward to our trip back to Bahia Honda even more now that we have this wonderful... More

We're vegetarians and were excited to find a true vegetarian cafe on Marathon Key. But, the execution disappointed. I had a pad thai wrap which was OK, but the wrap was old and not properly heated so it tended to crumble. The ingredients were good but the pad thai sauce was bland. My wife had a meatball wrap but left... More

The green monster was DELICIOUS. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. I'll be back next time I'm in town.

This is a very delicious organic healthy food cafe in town. The food is excellent. I had the Thai Wrap twice and my daughter the grilled cheese twice. We had a fresh squeezed juice too. Everything excellent. I'll be back for breakfast. I wish there were more heathy restaurants in Marathon.

Vegetarians have in rough in the Keys- nothing by pasta primavera and the occasional veggie burger. Food for Thought is your oasis. A tiny cafe in the back of the store with a surprisingly large selection of vegan and vegetarian entrees, sandwiches, and wraps. Lots of smoothies too-- try the pear/blueberry/pineapple/chia seed smoothie. Service and staff are very friendly.

An unlikely place serving vegan and vegetarian food. Between us we tried the hummus pizza, the grain bowl and a wrap. i recommend the grain bowl- comibination of quinoa/avocado and butter nut squash + other. Eatery is part of a store. But the service is quick and efficient. Washed it down with Jamaican non alcoholic ginger beer. Cost is a... More

We ate at Food For Thought during Spring Break 2016 and it was absolutely amazing! All of us consumed a different type of wrap and they were all great. The smoothies are out of this world! I have eaten at many places that are vegetarian and when I say this place is AWESOME, I mean it! My daughter is VERY... More
