We were visiting for the Fox Lea horse show. When we arrived at lunch time, the parking lot was completely full. The restaurant was packed with a few groups, each taking up an entire row of tables. That's ok, we sat outside with our lab, they have 3 covered tables just outside the main door. Wife ordered the veggie burger, I ordered the veggie wrap. Both tasted great and the servers were very friendly asking us how things were. Also had an angel smoothie which tasted great.

The closing of the restaurant in Northport resulted in the gain to Nokomis of a first rate, healthy food, place to eat in this area. My wife is a vegan and can easily make delicious choices at very reasonable cost. While I was a vegan when it first opened, I began eating meat again recently and make alternative choices now, sometimes vegan/vegetarian, sometimes meat. All terrific at this location. The staff is marvelous, one of the best I've run across for a long time. Friendly, quick to serve, happy to be working there.

The restaurant is quite family and friend oriented, though our usual visit is just the two of us. But with visiting guests, it's a *must* restaurant.

The owners, Annette and Ted, train their people well and it shows, and they make themselves personally available regularly to chat with the diners.

From the beginning, the restaurant attracted clientele who were rather "lost" in this area without any vegetarian or vegan restaurants. Even now, in the summer season, the crowds have dropped off very little. We generally eat there at least 3x weekly and the cost ranges between $20-30 for the two of us, very reasonable for such high quality and wonderfully prepared foods. Highly recommended.

First time I was here Everything was perfect. Second time food especially thr presentation was excellent. The waiter was intrusive however, interrupting when he shouldn't have. Next time I"ll ask for a specific server.

Café Evergreen brings new life to the area and for Nokomis/Venice, the restaurant is a great experience; so different from the vast majority of places in Sarasota County. This is not only healthy eating but they have found a way to be so creative with their menu.

This was our first visit as we often drove by and saw the parking lot packed and thought, " Where do they seat everybody in season." It opened in December and now that the snowbirds are long gone, we came in July. To our surprise, the space inside is much larger than we thought and even on a dreary Wednesday afternoon, the place was packed. Unlike so many struggling restaurants in the county, Café Evergreen has a loyal group,of locals as well as snowbirds because of its quality.

The menu is so inventive and extensive we'll keep coming back again and again.
