Stopped in for lunch on our way through St. Augustine and were very pleased with our decision to stop. Our dinners were delicious. Servings were generous.. Lots of interesting choices for vegan meals. We will seek out the Manatee Cafe when we are in the area again.

After spending the morning at the touristy spots, we found this great little place for lunch. Flavorful, healthy, light fare - perfect for hot Florida temps. My omnivore family were all happily surprised with the selection and delicious choices. We were there early for lunch and got right in, but the place filled fast. A definate must for anyone with dietary restrictions.

We were looking for a place to have a healthy breakfast while on vacation. On our last morning in St. Augustine we found this little gem of a place. We would have gone back several times if we had found it earlier. As I can't have gluten, eating here was a joy as many of the menu items could be made gluten free or vegan. I had a bagel sandwich (GF) and my husband had eggs, potatoes and toast. We also shared a green smoothie which was delicious. The prices were very reasonable, and the food top notch quality and fresh. Even the salt and ketchup on the table were not of the normal variety-- but quality. You can tell they are committed to providing their customers with the best options.

This is a wonderful luncheon joint. It is located in a nondescript strip mall outside of downtown St. Augustine. You'll need a car to get here. It was packed at lunch when we went there, so the wait was about 30 minutes for a table. We had barely sat down when the waiter came to take our order. Thankfully we had read the menus posted on the windows out front and knew what we wanted. The food was excellent and served without much of a fuss or wait. You get a lot of food on your plate for the price. I highly recommend this place, though the venue, location and view are nothing to write home about. Thankfully, the food is!

Small cafe atmosphere. Gets quite busy on the weekends, so be prepared for a wait. The breakfast omlette is amazing with the salad w/basil dressing. Awesome gluten-free french toast. GF Pancakes a little rubbery. Have not tried the waffle. The Mixed Veggie juice is a tasty fresh blend. Service is quick, but do not expect the warm fuzzies from most of the servers. Add in some server personality and I would give it 5 stars.
