It took us day to finally find a top restaurant with healthy foods. the vegetarian and vegan dishes are tops. they do have meat and fish but the vegetable dishes like falafel, quinoa salad, gyoza were amazing. get the carrot cake for desert.

Best meal we found whilst travelling in Kissimmee, Miami and Key West. We are vegetarians and found it hard to get good food with fresh ingredients. We were a group of seven, two non veg and we all found the food and hand crafted juices incredibly good. Staff were friendly and attentive. We were hesitant to try the Vegan key... More

We had an excellent dinner here. My wife and kids are vegetarian while I will eat just about anything. The polenta sticks were delicious. The butternut squash and chickpea empanadas were very good and tasted very much like samosas. The kung pao tofu was delicious. Well seasoned and not overly drenched in sauce. The fish tacos were excellent. The mahi... More

Had a group of seven, only three were vegetarians but everyone loved their meals. The stir fry with ginger sauce was great as was the fried tofu. My daughter had a pizza with brussel sprouts that she enjoyed. The atmosphere was cozy. If you are a vegetarian this is a must!

The Cafe has been a favorite for 4 years. Atmosphere is casual & funky and the menu is diverse. Tap selection is always different and there is always something for everyone. Great vegan dishes. Healthy portions. Super clean. The flavored juices each day are a family favorite. This is our go-to-place on the island.

This place was very charming and the food was excellent! I had trouble finding vegan restaurants during my trip and was so glad to have come upon this place. I had the veggie shepard's pie. Soooo tasty, wish I had been able to return.

Thank Taylor S
