Great food - Edit

We had the ultimate burger. It was so good and nice Smoky taste. The mac & cheese was wonderful. Very cheesy. The rice and beans and a nice later. We also tried the cold/raw corn chowder. Had a nice little bite to it.

Pros: Lots of selections, Several beers on the menu, All vegan, Worry free!!

Cons: A little bit of a wait. Definitely worth it.

$o Good - Edit

Went here with some friends for dinner. Some of them got appetizers, some had drinks- I had a locally made kombucha that was really delicious. I also had the raw cauliflower bites which were not very good. I had the raw avo sandwich for my main meal, which was really delicious. Most of the food was pretty tasty and extremely fresh. We got ice creams for dessert- I had mint ice cream which was so, so good. My friend had the key lime which was really good, too. I left completely stuffed! I don't think I'll be back any time soon just because it was so, so expensive! It seems more like a treat yourself kind of place.

Fabulous Experience!! - Edit

Fabulous restaurant with clean modern decor and large windows feels urban but comfortable. The food is delicious and very satisfying. I had the Kale salad and my wife had the Beyond Burger with a pho cheese. If you've never had a Beyond Burger you're missing out. I kid you not, you might freak out at first thinking it's a real Burger. Lol. Must try one and theirs are very well prepared.

Pros: clean modern urban environment, good selection of food items

One of my favorite vegan restaurants - Edit

It is beautifully lit up with the sunlight coming from the many windows and the burger with the pineapple is amazinggggg. The sushi also looks very good and I'm definitely trying it next. Went with two omnivores and they really enjoyed the food as well. I really like how this place looks very modern, gives it appeal to more people, at least regarding my experiences with vegan restaurants.

So good! - Edit

All vegan menu, plus vegan alcoholic drinks! :)

We sat outside and started with a gumbo soup, which was delicious. For our meals, we had the vegan enchiladas and the vegan burger - both were great!

We also had some vegan adult beverages and enjoyed our time people watching and eating some delicious vegan food.

Check this place out if you're in downtown St. Pete!

Pros: 100% vegan!, Alcohol , Cool place w/ lots of seating

Cons: Service wasn't terribly fast

Love the raw desserts! - Edit

We were pleased with almost everything we had. I really enjoyed the raw caeser salad. The potato salad and buffalo cauliflower are also good options. But the real highlight of the trip was the salted caramel cheesecake. I love raw cheesecake and this was a real treat! I'd go back again even if just for it.

Pros: Raw food options, Great atmosphere

Cons: Expensive!

Great place for vegans in St. Pete - Edit

Found this cute all-vegan restaurant on Central Ave. and I wish I would've known it was here before! So many different menu options- had trouble choosing what to order but ended up splitting the cider press cafe salad and the falafel burger with someone. Both were delicious yet flavorful as well and portions were a decent size. Prices weren't that bad, as vegan food can be expensive but I recommend sharing entrees. Will be visiting again sometime soon.

Updated from previous review on 2017-06-03

Pros: Wide range options on menu (all vegan), Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner , Nice, clean restaurant atmosphere

Cons: Can get pricy

It's so hard being vegan - Edit

It's really not hard being vegan though. Especially with restaurant options like Cider Press. Healthy options and comfort food options? Can't go wrong!

Amazing! - Edit

This place is so good! One of the best vegan meals I've ever had. Go out of my way to dine here when I fly in to Tampa to visit my parents in North Port.

Highly Recommended!!! Excellent environment, Excellent food, Excellent Staff - Edit

Excellent restaurant environment, excellent food, and excellent service! The staff was all very friendly and polite. Also, everything was priced reasonably. The food (stuffed pancakes with eggplant bacon and avocado sandwich with coleslaw and coffee with fresh almond milk and pumpkin cheesecake) was fresh and so delicious!!! The only thing I did not enjoy entirely was the pumpkin cheesecake only because it didn't really taste like a dessert. If you want a dessert that is not very sweet than you would probably enjoy this. For comparison, the raw stuffed pancakes tasted sweeter and more like a dessert than the pumpkin cheesecake. The environment felt relaxing but upbeat, open, airy, and clean. The doors were left open and a gorgeous breeze swept through the environment as everyone was enjoying their food. Being that they claim to also serve 100% only vegan foods I was a little disappointed to find out that they do serve cows dairy milk in single serving packets for coffee. In conclusion, I highly recommend this place and will be going back for sure!

Pros: Excellent environment, Excellent food, Raw options, Gluten free options, Vegan food, Coffee, Alcohol

Con: Serves single serving cows dairy milk coffee creamers(not listed on their menu, but is offered as an alternative to almond milk for coffee)

killer raw food selection - Edit

This place is AWESOME. Great raw food selection along with non raw options. This is an ideal place to bring non veggie people and educate them on how easy it is to make plant based taste good. They also have a huge variety of local beer, wine, and even kombuchas. This place rocks.

Best raw vegan food I've had on the East Coast! - Edit

I typically don't go out of my way to eat raw, but I travel alot and sometimes that is my best vegan option. This is by far the best raw, vegan restaurant I've been to. Every single item I tried was incredible. No salt or pepper necessary, as each dish was full of flavor. The textures accentuated the incredible complex flavors. The atmosphere was awesome. So nice to have found such a gem in St. Pete.

Pros: Food, Good value, Nice vibe

Cons: Pricey

Fabulous - Edit

I do not normally order appetizers or dessert but I do not usually have so many wonderful options! My sister and I split buffalo cauliflower and pineapple kimchi, pad Thai and crab cake sand which, bananas foster and ganache chocolate pie a la mode. It was all fantastic and artistically presented. Our server was delightful and the food presented in a timely manner. I felt the Pad Thai was a little pricey at $15 but this is downtown St Pete and it was worth it.

Amazing food + service! - Edit

Went here with my mom for a nice dinner, very modern and sleek design with the perfect location. We ordered cauliflower buffalo bites which came with an amazing ranch that tasted like dairy! I got an avoBLT and it was delicious! Full of flavor and right portion size. My side was cheesy kale chips which delivered. For desert we had salted caramel cheesecake, all of this ended up being expensive but was well worth the great service and food! So happy it's here and I'll be back soon enough!
