Very sweet place on the road to key west. We had a delicious vegan breakfast including fresh orange juice. Also got some raw snacks from the store for the trip. We will stop again on our way back!

Super fresh organic cafe with a great selection on healthy food and drinks. Smoothies, teas, coffee, soups, cookies, wraps, veggie dishes galore! Always the freshest ingredients and super friendly service!

We were heading to Key West and I forgot my hemp protein so we stopped here to get some. We decided to eat breakfast and it was so good. It is wonderful to eat a guilt free meal. Very fresh.

I was happy to find a restaurant that served vegan food. It was both healthy and delicious.There is also a store with health food, household products, books, and gifts. I've visited here twice and will do so again.

Who would have thought! This place was great. We're from the PNW and didn't expect to find this quality and care in the food in Florida! So glad we found this place! Highly recommend it! If you're there for breakfast get the Super Breakfast Wrap!

We stopped by here on our way home from Bahia Honda. What a pleasant, tasty, healthy surprise in a place where otherwise vegetarians have to fend for themselves. We had the pad thai wrap and the falafel burger, and both were excellent. We're looking forward to our trip back to Bahia Honda even more now that we have this wonderful... More
