We stopped here on our way home to Islamorada from Key West. Delicious juices and an amazing breakfast burrito, full of fresh vegetables! This is such a great place! I wish it was closer. We'll definitely be back! Great food... nice people!

This is a must visit every year we are in the Keys, incredible organic options. Love biking to the beach, and hitting this cafe for lunch and juice after.

Instead, look for organic cafe. that's the name. now to the "not really a restaurant" notion. It's a very small (maybe 8 tables) food service that shares space with a health foods store.

Ate here with our young kids on a day of touring the turtle hospital and dolphin encounter. It was fresh, delicious, and a wonderful break from the standard Keys fare. Super friendly staff. Would come back anytime!
