This little gem is great for the folks who actually care about the nutritional quality of the food they consume. I believe the menu is all vegan. The Lasagna, and the avocado tacos are delicious.

Attempted to eat at this restaurant however learned after driving here from Tampa that the restaurant was closed up with no signage indicating when or if they would reopen. I found out via their website that the restaurant has permanently closed.

Went for lunch , food is healthy and delicious which is not easy to find amongst so many fried grouper sandwiches .... It is very casual and not rushed so if you're looking for a quick bite and get out it might not be for you ... All the food we had was tasty and fresh , we returned the... More

My favorite here is the tacos, wrapped in a romaine leaf. This little raw food restaurant is out of the way, at the end of Pass A Grille where nearly all the restaurants are beachy food...good beachy food, but not well suited to vegetarians or vegans, or someone wanting to eat real healthy. Give it a try, especially if you... More

Wonderful place off the beaten path! So pleased to get friendly service and fresh food after giving up on The Hurricane! The two vegetarians were very pleased and the meat eaters were happy as well.

This is a small and casual vegan/raw (mostly) eatery in the Pass-A-Grille area of St. Pete Beach. I love raw vegan food and had the zucchini pad thai, which was quite tasty. I also had a nice warm (cooked) ramen-like soup which was good, but I liked the pad thai better. The staff are very friendly and it feels almost... More

We are not vegan - just like to eat healthy food which is hard to do in the Pass-a-Grille area. We were thrilled to find this restaurant for lunch. Food was so delicious you wouldn't realize you were eating any sort of special diet. My husband had the barley chili with an onion flatbread. I had the zucchini Pad Thai.... More

Was excited to go here with all the good reviews, and actually feel a bit sad writing this review, but I feel I want to help others from being misled. Atmosphere 3/5. Not a five due to its very casual atmosphere and set up. But that's ok. We Like that. Food... 4/5. We had to send food back for it... More

Stopped in for lunch. Food was fantastic! Went back the following day for dinner! Laid back & casual! Cannot say enough about how great the food was! Definitely make a stop if any where in St. Pete area!

This always made for the perfect end to a day on the beach. The food is excellent and super nutritious (plus it's actually a less expensive alternative). Having lived in South Tampa for a couple years, I go to Pass-A-Grill on beach days for a combination of the beauty and cleanliness of the beach, incredible sunsets, and this food! It's... More
