Love coming here for lunch! Always a nice, fresh-meal experience, we are repeat customers here. Love their hummus! They offer great breakfasts as well. Healthy choices are offered here and we will continue to dine at this great location!

We were in St. Augustine last week for a few days and had breakfast at Manatee Cafe on two mornings. Both experiences were very nice. Lots of options for vegetarians but also options for breakfast such as eggs and toast (no bacon available but was still good). My wife had the breakfast burrito with tofu and daughter had scrambled tofu-both were very happy with their meals. Service was friendly and personable-not particularly fast but the food was cooked to order and served hot and fresh. Small staff worked well together.

I don't award 5 stars often... An establishment must be not only good, but memorable, and (in the case of restaurants) crave-able. Don't let the vegetarian talk dissuade you, there are ample meat and meatless options to choose from and the portions are hearty. I wish we had tried Manatee Cafe before our last day because it could have saved us a lot of money and disappointments at other "highly-rated" restaurants.
Manatee is a small restaurant in a strip mall just a few miles from the historic district and the food is fresh, delicious, and affordable. The menu descriptions just don't do it justice because the food that was served was so much more than what we had expected. We had the Tofu Reuben (highly recommended, but skip the tabouli option), the Breakfast Burrito (so stuffed with deliciousness that it cannot be wrapped shut! "hash browns" were divine) and the spelt pancakes (extraordinary but a little pricey, $8.25).
They are open 8am til 4pm (sun. 3p) and can get very busy since its a small, and popular place. Manatee has free wi-fi and breakfast is served all day.

P.S.
Thumbs up on the GT's Kombucha!
