Great stop

Delicious vegan tacos! They tasted so fresh and were really filling. The lady working here was so friendly. Stopped in on our way out of Key West, my friend liked his food as well. The best part was that we have REAL vegan desserts!!

Fantastic food

I got the vegan nachos (they’re the regular nachos order just with vegan cheese and no meat) and the eggplant BLT. Everything was flavorful, and then as a cherry on top the to-go containers were compostable.

My husband had the duck and pork tacos and he was very impressed with both orders. He said they were very good.

We shared the vegan cheesecake and it was delicious! We were both pleasantly surprised by how good the cheesecake tasted. Definitely recommend leaving room for dessert so you can try the vegan cheesecake (whether or not vegan you will enjoy it).

Several vegan options and a wide variety of craft beer!

Instead of most Key West restaurants where you only have the option of french fries or a side salad...here you have a few veggie options including salads, bowls and tacos. There is very limited parking so you may need to park across the street.

Pros: Multiple vegan options , Water view, Friendly service

Cons: Limited parking

Quick and yummy can’t beat that

Was perfect for a quick pick up dinner, location is very easy to miss and comes up on you fast. Getting out of the parking lot can be a hassle if there’s traffic.

Pros: Tofu mushroom tacos were yummy , Friendly staff , Quick take out service

Cons: Parking

Pros: Clearly marked vegan options, Vegan Key Lime Pie!

Great options for vegans and meat eaters

Serves both vegans as well as meat eaters, with lots of options to choose from for everyone. Went for lunch and enjoyed a great meal that was a sizable portion. Extensive beers on tap. Located on the Bight, there's not much of a view when sitting outdoors and the boats are docked, but well worth the visit. Staff is friendly and service was good. Worth the visit.

Pros: Plenty of vegan and vegetarian options

Cons: Location isnt the best and is next to a busy road

Great little place

The food was delicious! We had the tofu Bahn Mi sandwich and vegan tacos and both were very flavorful yummy. The key lime cheesecake was frozen and refreshing.. great flavor with a coconut crust. The staff was super friendly and easy going. There's a bar inside that serves wine and local beer. Seating is inside and out, and it is right by the marina. They also grow fresh herbs and veggies alongside the outdoor tables. And live music in the evening!

Absolutely delicious

We went here 2 nights in a row it was that delicious. I had vegan taco lettuce wrap the 1st night and a vegan taco bowl the 2nd night. They have an yummy vegan cheese, a house made cashew nut sour cream and a jalepeno vinaigrette to die for. We are back home from our vacation and I'm still craving it!

Pros: Many vegan options , Great atmosphere , Not expensive
