first don't look for the name "food for thought" on the front of the store in this three-sided strip mall. It's not there. Instead, look for organic cafe. that's the name. now to the "not really a restaurant" notion. It's a very small (maybe 8 tables) food service that shares space with a health foods store. Menu is rather extensive,... More

Ate here with our young kids on a day of touring the turtle hospital and dolphin encounter. It was fresh, delicious, and a wonderful break from the standard Keys fare. Super friendly staff. Would come back anytime!

We were on our way out from the Keys and so happy to see the advertisement trailer: this plays delivers not only for the health and food conscious peeps, it also offers a stroll through an awesome store with organic and alternative health support - I saw my favorite brands presented. Loved it and felt awesome for the rest of... More

Good vegan food at a reasonable price in Marathon Florida! Food for Thought is a combination café and health food store - just what I needed for a five day stay in Marathon. Predominantly vegan with some vegetarian options. Had both breakfast and lunch there and also bought a lunch entrée for take out dinner (they close late afternoon). There... More

Very sweet place on the road to key west. We had a delicious vegan breakfast including fresh orange juice. Also got some raw snacks from the store for the trip. We will stop again on our way back!

Lovely food and service as a vegetarian it's often difficult to find healthy food ,but it was a real treat to visit this store .I ordered a hummus wrap to take away and there was enough for two meals .Excellent customer service would love to visit again.

Super fresh organic cafe with a great selection on healthy food and drinks. Smoothies, teas, coffee, soups, cookies, wraps, veggie dishes galore! Always the freshest ingredients and super friendly service! (one area they could improve is letting you know if they are out of a particular ingredient if its on/in something you've ordered - other than a time or two... More

We were heading to Key West and I forgot my hemp protein so we stopped here to get some. We decided to eat breakfast and it was so good. It is wonderful to eat a guilt free meal. Very fresh.
