We ate here twice on a recent trip to Key West. The food, service, and atmosphere is beyond excellent. The vegan kale salad was delish, and I added tofu to it, which was SO GOOD. I wish this cafe was closer, because I would be...More

Stopped for early dinner here as we wandered around Key West. A bit of vegetarian and vegan options; a difficult task to find. The vegan meatless meatball sub was good as was the portobello on ciabatta. The restaurant gets pretty busy and I was amazed...More
