We found Meze by mistake, a half block from old downtown St Pete. The food was fresh and incredibly flavorful. We have a new favorite.

Fine choices for anyone's palate. The falafel was fabulous and the sauce scrumptious. Try the green omelette for something familiar but different and the cauliflower was terrific. Such wonderful healthy taste sensations. Service with a smile.

This was only the 2nd time eating at a vegan restaurant and it was all yummy. We started with the mujadera and falafel. Both were so tasty that we tried the acorn squash. We will definitely return the next time we are in town. It...More

My vegan "coach" and I went to Meze for lunch. We had the spinach cakes, acorn squash & roasted cauliflower. The thrill was the spinach cakes! Tasty beyond belief. The squash was incredible, we dipped it in "I forget what it was" sauce. The cauliflower...More
