I have been here several times now and really enjoyed it every time. They have really tasty options for a vegan diet, but are so tasty they appeal to everyone. I LOVE the Tempeh Ruben and the Poutine. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is warm and upbeat. They use a lot of local produce and I support that... More

We stopped based on ratings for a non chain healthy lunch. My wife got the big salad with Tempeh and she liked it. I got the Tempeh Reuben and it was tasty although I did not care for the sauerkraut. The side of sweet potato fries were excellent The prices were fair and the portions were large. There is outdoor... More

Just finished my first meal from Sweet Pea, I can't believe I have not tried it sooner. My experience was super friendly staff, and the freshest, best tasting, healthiest meal around. I am not vegan, but did not miss the meat! Can't believe how much flavor and how fresh the food is, compared to the fast food places you are... More

Our family loves the food at SweetPea and we go there often. The staff working often are not exceptionally friendly and they have seemed quite inefficient at times, but we put up with it because a lot of the food is really good. The tempeh ruben is a favorite of ours! However, when we called ahead to place a take-out... More

I was happy to come across this place while driving back home on vacation. It's not easy to find a quality vegan place in North Florida at 3pm on a Sunday lol! I ordered the big salad(lemon tahini dressing), tempeh Ruben sandwhich, BLT, homemade lemonade, fresh cut fries, and sweet potato fries. Yes, I was hungry! They also had a... More

Sweet Pea isn't fancy but does make delicious, healthy meals that won't leave you feeling bloated and guilty. We ordered the falawesome with sweet potato fries and the rueben. Our order was made promptly and the food was a refreshing take on regular diner food. We would eat here again.

Yes, the food is good and tasty. The $$ for anything extra is interesting. A refill for a drink is half price but the 'to go' cup has a charge, too. Just saying....if you are watching your pennies, college crowd, buyer beware!

My wife and I are both vegetarians leaning toward Vegan side. We travel a lot and one of the things we find difficult is mealtime. Well, Tallahassee is not a problem anymore since we have discovered the Sweet Pea Cafe. We got the Tempeh Reuben with sweet potato fries and the Spicey BLT with the beans and rice. To die... More

This place was fantastic! I have the veggie ruben and my husband (who is not vegetarian) had the falafel sandwich. Both of them were delicious. The basil lemonade might be the best thing I've consumed in weeks. I could not stop thinking about it after we left (so much so that I had to attempt to make my own two... More
