The food at the Manatee Cafe is out of this world. Everything we ordered was fantastic. I had the breakfast burrito with hash browns. This was the best breakfast I have had in a very long time (while dinning out). My boyfriend had a veggie pizza with vegan cheese and it was amazing too. The portions are also massive. You... More

I've had so many things on this menu I've lost count. I love the cajun tofu, the veggie pita, the pizza, the veggie burger. If you're into YUMMY, healthy food then this is your place. Everything here is fresh, the salads are amazing - piled with avocado, sweet potato, fresh sprouts and topped with homemade dressing. Their mustard based dressing... More

This is a great spot for a healthy, heavily vegan oriented meals. I had the Veggie Omelette which was really tasty. It was cook well and loaded with lots of good veggies, mushrooms, onions, carrots, sweet potato, avocado, salsa. It was served with home fries (or grits). I choose home fries and they were more like roasted potatoes, but I... More

Pleasant cafe, friendly staff, and great tasting vegan food. I had the tofu scramble for breakfast and it was delicious. The seasoning was incredible and the portion was generous.

After my 8th time I think the biggest thing I can say about manatee cafe is that every single time my wife and I eat there, we leave feeling good. It's as if the food has magical properties. We stop in every time we are either in St. Augustine or headed somewhere that way.

Our friend found this little cafe for me near his vacation home. I'm a pescatarian, mostly vegetarian. Being the only non-meat eater, it was nice that my partner and friends agreed to go here. The verge omelet was delicious! My boyfriend had the oatmeal and eggs with their hash browns. My friend had the pancakes and her husband had eggs... More
