Such a great find on the Island!

I had the Mediterranean salad for lunch, and the veggie wrap for dinner. Both were delicious. My son had the chicken sandwich and rated it 10/10! The sweet potato fries were some of the best I have ever had. I only wish I had found it earlier during our stay, and not on the last day!

Pros: Yummy vegan options, Ability to add tofu as a protein option , Cute outdoor seating

Just Okay

I was excited to get the Thai Noodle Salad because a lot of vegans on here say that it was good but it has fish sauce in it!! Don’t get it unless you eat fish sauce!!! But I got a portabella sandwich with no cheese and no mayo and it wasn’t bad. Wouldn’t come running back to get it again but it was a good portion and had fresh ingredients. There were other vegan options I didn’t try.

Pros: Staff was lovely , Quick service , Good portion sizes

Cons: Not TOO many vegan options

Great Veggie Burger

We ate here for brunch and they have great outdoor seating. The house-made veggie burger was incredible and served with regular or sweet potato fries or you can get a combo of both, which I really enjoyed! There were several other vegan options for lunch and dinner, including a grilled tofu and vegetable plate. We definitely plan to go back for dinner next time we are on the island.

Update: We have been back every time we are on the island and love this gem. The tofu tower at dinner is incredible (see pic)!

Great Sit Down Vegan Options

I went to Fernandina Beach and was looking for Vegan restaurants and came across Kafe Karibo.

They had some vegan options and I decided to order the Tofu Tower if im not mistaken. It was one of the best sit down Vegan Meals I've ever had in my life.

Pros: Has Vegan Options

Cons: Not an extensive Vegan Menu

Great options, made fresh.

I’ve been to Cafe Karibo many times and enjoy their tasty food. The Mediterranean Couscous salad is a favorite. Call to be sure they’re open.

Pros: Made Fresh, Will make changes to suit your needs.

Cons: It’s busy during tourist season. , Call ahead to be sure they are open.

I had the veggie wrap. The tofu was really squishy and just had a terrible texture. The bean sprouts had a sour-bitter flavor. The wrap was soggy and the beans' juices were leaking all over the place. The decor was cool, but the food was really bad and took forever to get to our table, and the staff seemed really unattentive.

Pros: Decor was alright.

Cons: Expensive, bad food, bad staff.

Excellent veg-friendly restaurant

I can't say enough about how much my husband and I enjoyed eating at Cafe Karibo. We tried four of their small plates and shared the veggie burger. There were so many tasty looking options for us that it was difficult to choose. Everything was excellent but the lentil plate and burger were really phenomenal. Service was top-notch and atmosphere was laid-back and comfortable. I would definitely recommend for veg and non-veg folks alike.

My favorite local veg-friendly restaurant!

I have lived in Fernandina for three years, and upon moving, was delighted to find Cafe Karibo. They have the best veggie burger I have ever had! I think it is very popular because a couple of times that I have been, it hasn't been available. The Thai noodle salad with tofu is also very, very good. I just recently made the transition to vegan, and I'm not sure if those items are vegan, but I will find out! Karibo is going to cater our wedding party next spring, and they're open to doing at least a couple vegan items. Definitely a favorite of mine! Laid-back atmosphere, good live music are also a plus.

Pros: Yummy food, Laid-back atmosphere

Cons: Service sometimes slow if busy
