601 Ponce DeLeon Blvd, Deleon Springs, Florida, USA, 32130

Serves meat, vegan options available. A unique restaurant, with a view of the natural springs, is situated in an historic building, located inside the DeLeon Springs State Park Recreation Area. Each table is equipped with a griddle and the staff brings pitchers of in-house-made pancake batters and you make them yourself at your table. Offers vegan pancake mix, vegan sausage, granola, fruit, and vegan pancake toppings (or mix in batter), like pecans, bananas and blueberries. Please note you do have to pay the park entry fee in order to dine. Open Mon-Fri 9:00am-4:00pm, Sat-Sun 8:00am-4:00pm.

Great family fun (vegitarian sausage is NOT vegan) - Edit

If you are looking for a day out with the family and a fun new experience, this is great. Be sure to get your name on the list as soon as you get there as the weekends and summer months are very busy. Then you will have 1.5-2 hours to play in the Springs before your table is ready. Ask for the gluten free/vegan pancakes. Most to toppings are vegan as well. The kids will lo e cooki g on ghe table griddle! Note, the vegitarian sausage is NOT vegan as the other review suggests. Unfortunately they use Morningstar.

Pros: Something for vegans, Family day out, Fun & unique

Cons: Long wait time, Very HOT, Veg sausage is not vegan

Beautiful location and fun dining experience! - Edit

I have been going to the Old Spanish Sugar Mill with my family since I was a kid. The non-vegan pancakes are delicious, and I loved cooking pancakes on the griddle at our table. Well, I was THRILLED to find out they now offer vegan and gluten free pancake mix and vegan sausage! Both are pretty tasty. I like to add in optional blueberries, bananas, and pecans to the pancakes. They also offer fresh orange juice. Unfortunately they do not have vegan milks for coffee yet. The restaurant is located inside the State park and overlooks the springs. It's a great family place. Go with time to take a short nature hike, swim in the springs, boat ride, walk in the butterfly garden, or paddle around the park. On weekends or holidays, there can be a long wait for the restaurant. The restaurant is small because it is located inside the old historic building. The remnants of the mill are just beside the building.

Also, while they do offer meat products like bacon/ham, the meat is cooked out of sight in the back kitchen. So, you don't have to watch the meat eaters cook their food. However, eggs are cooked on the griddle. Each table has a griddle, so it's only a problem if you dine with people in your party who eat eggs.

Also, it's not really a con, but please be aware that you have to pay park entry to eat at the restaurant because it is located inside of the park.

Pros: Beautiful natural location, Fun experience

Cons: No vegan milk, Vegan food options limited
