Stopped here for a quick bite on the way to the Tropic Cinema. Ordered shaved Brussel Sprouts from the special menu, They were amazing! Ordered Fig and Gorgonzola Pizza from the regular menu and the Gorgonzola was some of the best Ive ever tasted, Together the food was more then enough for my husband and I to share! Highly recommend.

So many options and such great vegan dishes!! My boyfriend and I came here twice during our visit cause it was so good! Also, the fresh juices are great!! They also have alcoholic drinks too even though it's just a cafe!

We ate here on a Sunday evening. We arrived about 7pm and the place was really busy with a few spare tables. We were seated and given menus that must be at least 90% veggie. And for a veggie that was wonderful. We shared a starter - a large bowl of hot edamame beans - followed by the hot beet... More

Everything I have ever tried at The Cafe has been eye-rollingly delicious! The stirfry...shephardess pie...the fish entrees....all out of this world. And the Daily Specials always offer something new and original. The Cafe also boasts a great craft beer list.

Love this place from top to bottom. The chocolate beet cake. The ceaser salad. The unwing dings. The home brewed kombucha. The fresh juices. The lasagna. The only place to get gyoza! And beer So much love for the food and people who light up the place :)

The husband and I popped in for some much needed wholesome food and were blown away my flavor! We had the curried butternut squash empanadas and spinach gyoza dumplings. They were both so savory and full of fresh ingredients!!!! We also partook of a beer and infused watermelon champagne while there, which was only a minute fraction of the selection... More

Oh lord, where do I start? I'm a local, and eat/order from the Cafe on average 3 times per week. I think I've tried almost everything on the menu now. I love this place. I love that they have vegan options (very rare on this island!). I love the staff, the delivery is very quick and they have daily specials... More
