Ate here twice and enjoyed it both times. Not a vegetarian but really liked the vege burger and the felafel sandwich. A little expensive but I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Key West.

Lots of vegetarian options but few vegan items . Few gluten free and vegan options. Restaurant uses shared fryer which makes it unsafe for those with food allergies.

We went here twice for dinner. Both times the food was very tasty and huge portions. The staff were very helpful and the place is fun and quirky. It does get busy but they gave quite a quick turnover of tables. Well worth a visit.

The Cafe offers a large selection of vegetarian food. It is one of the excellent eating place in Key West. The place is small but the vegetarian food quality is great.
