This is the most innovative vegetarian menu I've ever seen in a highly touristic neighborhood like the Duval Street area of Key West. I found the flavors of my stir fry a bit boring (sort of ran together with no striking note), but the spinach...More

We were here looking for vegan food and the food was tasty and delightful. Not even a single piece was left out and kids too enjoyed the house special watermelon cucumber lime juice n definitely a try for Blackberry Avacado cake... 👌
