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

This place is awesome, fresh food and ingredient at its finest. After trailing up and down Duval Street this pace is a breath of fresh air, it has a huge menu catering for all tastes and is very reasonable. I had Carolina's Huevos Rancheros which...More

My newly husband and I stopped by to try out the pizza and Mahi Mahi fish tacos. We also had a mi tai drink as well. It was all delicious in a very low key environment.

We had an amazing breakfast here. Breakfast burrito and biscuits & gravy. The food is so very good. You will not miss the meat. I wish we could have eaten here more than once. I'm confident lunch and dinner are equally as good.

My husband and I enjoyed sandwiches with marinated eggplant, portobella mushrooms, greens and tomato and then we indulged in a homemade dessert. We shared a slab of coconut cake that may have included a little ginger and lime. Everything was delicious and the service was...More
