Great Vegan Option on Sanibel Island

Posted on 08 / 16 / 2014

The only reason this is rated as 4 stars instead of 5 is because Happy Cow doesn't allow non-vegetarian restaurants to receive 5 stars.

This place is fantastic. There is a vegan option on the menu, but I was told by the chef that anything can be made vegan. There are also several vegetarian options on the menu (which can be made vegan, of course). I ordered the vegan taco dish, and it was delicious.

They are very accommodating, and I will definitely be eating there next time I'm on the island. They also grow a lot of their own vegetables right on the property, which I like.

Pros: Vegan options, Vegetarian options, Friendly staff

We've had dinner here several times now and the food is always superb. The vegan tacos are out of this world. Great atmosphere, great food, it's our favorite restaurant on the island by far.

Wish there were more vegan options, especially desserts.

Stopped by this place because it was close and had good reviews. We had the guacamole and chips, and vegan taco (3). Both were excellent. It's a very quant place in a nice location. The only com I give it is the rice and beams they serve with their tacos are instant rice. Aside from that, good job!

Pros: Vegan options, Vegetarian options , Wide selection of beer and mead
Cons: A little pricey for what you're getting

What a fantastic find! A nice choice of vegan options clearly marked on the menu. Great selection of beer too. Freshly made to order quacamole. Superb service.
Well worth the visit...and to visit again.
Apparently not open Monday. Hours not posted online or on the building...but they were not open on 6/9/14.

Pros: Fresh/local food, Very good vegan options on menu., Great craft beers.
Cons: Would love even more vegan optons.

Everything Phenomenal

An all-around wonderful dining experience. From the friendly wait staff to the delicious vegan food, you can't go wrong at Fresh Taqueria. The entire menu isn't vegan but there are vegan items available throughout the entire menu. Everyone loves rice & beans but it's such a delight to be able to order mexican items made with tempeh and vegan cheese. There's something for everyone on the menu - lots of items made w cow's cheese for vegetarians & chicken dishes, etc for the less enlightened diners in your group.

For a sit down dinner, Fresh Taqueria is the #1 spot on the island. The Sanibel Sprout is also not to be missed-that's a casual atmosphere where you grab & go from a refrigerated area or sit at the counter.

Find it.. it's worth it....

Once you figure out where to park and how to enter the restaurant you will find a fun and eclectic dining room. The friendly staff seated us quickly and jump right into telling us about the many craft beers as well offering up fresh guacamole and in house prepared chips. The vegan enchiladas were very good. Two enchiladas with seasonal vegetables with a side of black beans was a filling lunch. The Vegan and Alice tacos were very flavorful. The dinner menu offers up tapas. It’s definitely worth finding your way to FRESH Taqueria.

Pros: Food, Service, Atmosphere
