“Vegan Dinner in Key West, Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My husband and I dined at The Cafe several times during our visit to Key West. We enjoy the vegan unwings (fried tofu in sauce), the veggie burger (giant falafel type burger), burger bits (same like the burger, but smaller and much tastier without the burger bun), and the peppersteak made with vegan daiya cheese. All of the food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice and a little artsy. On our first visit which was a busy Friday night, the food came within 15 minutes. On our second visit, the following Saturday, it took an hour for the food to arrive. So, don't show up starving, it may require patience. ;-)

“Healthy food alternative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The warm beet salad with gorganzola was a symphony of flavors. There were options for diverse dietary preferences and many healthy alternatives. Service was quick and friendly.

“Best meal in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We made the mistake if visitng on our last day :( .....We should have gone earlier as I am not sure we would have eaten any where else. I had a great veggie burger with sweet potato fries, my boyfriend has a fish dish. Both fantastic!!!!

The menu was varied and had something for everyone.

Cannot recommend it enough. Don't make the same mistake as us, go there early in your trip to avoid the disapointment of not being able to go back.

“x 2 !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Want a wonderful taste sensation - Come to The Cafe! Its vegetarian and seafood (only) menu is Outstanding! So much so, we returned for dinner two consecutive nights. The ambiance is simple: Two joined dark rooms with basic wooden chairs/tables and a wall of windows along the front facing Southard. The very good local artwork adorning the walls (and for sale) adds a nice and interesting vibe. Our service was inconsistent (fantastic one evening then medicore another) but every food selection was incredibly delectable. Particular highlights were the gorgonzola & fig pizza, shrimp fajita quesadilla and "special" artichoke dip. My tablemate also recommended the udon bowl. Will definitely plan a stop at The Cafe on the next visit to Key West.
