Good food but a little pricey

Posted on 04 / 25 / 2015

Ate here a couple of times in April 2015. The place has only been open at this location a few months (near Bailey's General Store). The food is very good, but the price is a little steep. I paid $9 or more for a chocolate smoothie. Paid $43 for a two-person lunch that included two entrees and two smoothies. But the food is very good. It is all plant-based and mostly organic I think. They serve breakfast all day, and also have several lunch or dinner options. They sell a lot of smoothies, despite the prices. They also stock a small number of vegan food-stuffs like Stevia and Earth Balance. Plus they sell t-shirts, magazines, and a few other items. Seems to be a real family-run business, with as many as three generations working at the shop. The place feels like a sandwich shop, though there are other options, and sandwiches seem to be a small part of the menu. The ambience is not really upscale, though the prices are. But if you are looking for vegan fare on Sanibel, you must check out the Ssanibel Sprout.

Pros: Tasty Food, Vegan Food, Family-Run
Cons: Pri ce, Ambience is not memorable, May have to wait a bit for food.

My daughter and I are both vegan and from out of state, found this place on Happy Cow. LOVED IT! We got there after the lunch rush and sadly about everything was sold out. But the owner was so kind and whipped us up two of the best hot sandwiches I had in a long time! Was friendly and delish :)

Pros: Kind hearted warm people, Great vegan food, real unique
Cons: more seating maybe, to bad a lot had sold out, next time, would of loved a dessert, none left

Sanibel Sprout

Lovely place, but not entirely vegan. Some of the juices/shots have honey in them, and many of the non-food items had non-vegan ingredients (including gelatin).

The juices smelled delicious, but they were understaffed due to illness and we weren't able to get one. We'll try again another time.

Great smoothies, including some that are a bit out of the ordinary! Really nice staff & owner. Freshly prepared dishes for take or eat outside. Nice selection of "health food store" type items, plus some unique stuff.

Pros: Excellent smoothies, The lasagna is wonderful!, Nice little selection of unique art.
Cons: Small place/small selection

Not To Be Missed!

Your visit to Sanibel Island is not complete without going to The Sanibel Sprout. The quality of the food is on par with with finest vegan restaurants in New York, LA or Chicago. It's not a sit-down dining place. You walk in and you're in a small health food store. Straight back is the smoothie & juice counter with a few stools so you can sit down. You'll also find a refrigerated to-go section with the most to-die-for raw vegan delights you've ever tasted. You can definitely make a lunch of it with their selection of salads, lasagna, etc and desserts. I would stop here every single day for a breakfast smoothie if I could.

Whatever you do, you have to have one of their smoothies. They'll be among the best you've had in your life.

This is by far the best stop for vegans on the island. My 2nd fave place would be FRESH Taqueria. Next is Sanibel Bean.

The Only Vegan Spot on Sanibel Island

Posted on 03 / 06 / 2014

We visited Sanibel Island during our road trip to the Ft. Myers Beach Florida area. Using our trusty Happy Cow application we were pleasantly surprised to find The Sanibel Sprout.

This lovely little shop has a variety of things including prepared vegan (mostly raw) meals and a wonderful Smoothie Bar. Small but very accommodating.

We arrived after the normal lunch hour but Niki, the proprietor was gracious enough to prepare us a fresh 'raw' Mexican salad. Delicious. We started with a couple of excellent smoothies (SO good!) and browsed while our salads were prepared.

If you visit Sanibel Island, we encourage you to visit and have Niki make you a delicious Smoothie. It will make your day; especially after hiking in the nearby Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge!

Pros: Excellent Fresh Smoothie Choices., Delicious Raw Prepared Meals, Accomodating and Friendly Hostess
Cons: Small, Limited Seating

EVERY DISH was delicious and so obviously prepared with skill, inspiration and love from organic foods. Beautifully seasoned and presented too. All vegan, mostly raw. Loved so much -- the Mexican salad, butternut squash-broccoli, lemon tart and other raw desserts, the divine Asian soup, the juices, the amazing organic coffee mocha drink! GO - but warning - you may start thinking of moving to the island if you don't live there already.

Today after our trip at www.captivakayaks.com (run by vegan) we went to this place. We thought that they were opened till 6 pm but at monday they are closed by 5 pm. But a very friendly older woman was prepared to open the door and showed us the products here daughter made today. Nice vegan also vegan gluten free and raw vegan options. We bought a raw vegan no real tuna salad, houmous and two gluten free cupcaks. Al was nice fresh and very tasty. They also has a small shop with good vegan snacks, nice yoga cloths and natural healing products. Prices were very reasonable.
Next time we come at Sanibal, we come back.

Pros: Good vegan options, Raw, GF, and cooked, very friendly

Fresh Vegan food on Sanibel Island

Posted on 12 / 06 / 2013

Wonderful freshly prepared specialties. Get here early as many items sell out quickly. Since it's only open for lunch, it would be great to have dinner entrees available for take out in the later afternoon.

Pros: fresh, organic, tasty
Cons: lunch only

Vegans from NJ. Went to Sanibel Island for a week. Went here first day - great food, great selection, friendly staff. Could get what we wanted and needed here.
I ordered an incredible smoothie - can't remember what it was called - beyond belief - had Kale, Lemons, Mango & some other fruit I never heard of before.

Pros: Friendly & Knowledgable staff, Great food, Great Selection
Cons: Website not good indication of store
