Perfection - Edit

Love giving this business my money when I'm too lazy to make food! Most of this is stuff you could make at home for cheaper, but it's delicious! Everything on the menu is a safe bet, but my favorite is the Reuben for sure! Indoor and outdoor seating is nice. Bring your omni friends here! (If you still have any)

Pros: All vegan everything!!!, Muy delicioso , Quaint environment

Cons: Pricey (worth it)

This is such a friendly, relaxing place. I have fallen in love with the Ruben sandwich. Each time I visit, I tell myself I will try something else and work my way through the whole menu. I keep opting for the Ruben. :))

Pros: Great food, nice staff, Good beer, Recycle and compost bins

Delicious stop on our road trip. - Edit

If you plan it right this gem is less then two miles off of I-10. We lucked out finding it on our way to LA and couldn’t have been happier. We had the tempeh Rueben and poutine fries. Both- so soooo good! We also grabbed two treats for the road! If I lived closer this would be a regular spot for us!

Pros: good price, all vegan , breakfast and lunch options

Great Vegan Dishes - Edit

This was my first visit to Sweet Pea and I will updating this review often because I will definitely be returning. My wife and I got take out today and everything was delicious. I had the tempeh reuben which can stand on its own against any vegan sandwich. The tempeh was substantial and tasty. My wife ordered the daily special which today was called the Mariah Curry. The restaurant describes it as Indian style curry with roasted cauliflower, local Seminole squash, chickpeas in a creamy tomato cashew sauce all topped with mango chutney and oyster mushrooms and carrot pakoras. The ingredients blended magnificently to form a flavorful dish.
The restaurant uses fresh and locally grown organic ingredients where possible. There is indoor and outdoor seating, which we will take advantage of in the cooler months.

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, Local and organic, Daily and weekend specials

Best of the Best - Edit

OMG So good! Anyone that eats here has to wonder why they ever ate meat in the first place. Make sure you get the poutine and you can't go wrong with any of their dishes. All sandwiches are lip smacking. Service was excellent and their attention to detail was admirable and greatly appreciated especially since we were traveling.

Pros: super relaxing atmosphere as well as eye popping m

Cons: They are not on Dallas.

Sweet Deal - Edit

I made my 5th or 6th visit to Sweet Pea Cafe around 3:15 PM last Sunday afternoon (3/29/15), with my wife and son, as is usually the case, but I have also taken my grandchildren there as well on another occasion. I ordered the Tempeh Reuben with sweet potato fries and a lemonade. The food, as I have experienced previously, was delicious. Serving size was right. I find the price reasonably okay. Our food was served promptly. The food was great every time that I have been there.

Awesome vegan food (vegan poutine in Florida!) - Edit

The Sweet Pea Cafe in Tallahassee is a 100% vegan spot with some inside seating and ample outside seating under a giant awning to shade diners from the Florida sun. I ordered the spicy BLT and upgraded the side of regular fries to poutine for $1.50 extra. The fries were crisp and golden and smothered in delicious gravy, melty vegan cheese and herbs. The sandwich had blackened tofu, spicy vegenaise and lettuce and tomato on toasted bread. The whole menu looked fantastic, complete with vegan desserts!

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly staff

See pics we uploaded of our tempeh reuben we are in the outdoor seating. Their conscious stickers and even charging for to go containers to help minimize waste. Right on. Cool cafe with cool smiling employees cooking and preparing really yummy food!

I love everything about Sweet Pea! - Edit

This restaurant has become my favorite restaurant BY FAR in tallahassee. They are environmentally conscious which I LOVE and they serve delicious food. I have tried almost everything on the menu and so far my favorites are the BLT with Blackened tofu and the Black Bean Burger. All of their food is simply put, tasty as hell! They have delicious sauces that compliment each dish and the fresh desserts are BOMB. The store itself is so cute and homey, they have a gender equal bathroom which rocks, and they use LOCAL PRODUCE. I cannot say enough good things about this place.Keep doing yo thang Sweet Pea.

Pros: AMAZING FOOD, reasonably priced, Environmentally conscious

Cons: None this place is the bees-knees

My favorite food in Tallahassee! - Edit

I love everything about Sweet Pea. I've taken many of my carnivore friends here (who are VERY skeptical about the vegan thing) and they all left loving it. I think between all of us, we have now tried everything on the menu and there isn't one thing that wasn't delicious! My favorites are the Buffalo Tofu Sandwich (completely satisfied my need for buffalo in my life...) and the Falawesome. The lemon-tahini salad dressing is a must try as well! You will not regret eating here... Vegan or not! PS - TRY THE ICE CREAM FLOATS.

Pros: Everything is delicious

Local gem - Edit

I don't think I've ever had something from here that I didn't like. Lot of great sandwiches, the quesadillas are tasty and their homemade drinks are pretty good too.

The menu ranges from cheap eats to lunch items that are upwards of $10. Pretty much everything comes with a side, so you'll have plenty to eat no matter what you get.

The source their food locally and their vegan...what more can you ask for?

Pros: Tasty food, generally friendly staff, some cheap menu items

Cons: Parking is awkward, Their driveway has a huge dip in it
