We used to eat at this café regularly as they are very accommodating to anyone with allergies. However, we have been disappointed on our latest 3 visits, with incorrect orders, stale burger buns & undercooked/overcooked food. Also on each of these 3 visits we had terrible “sticker shock” with seemingly minor add-ons making the final bill huge. I am not sure we will be returning here soon.

Everything about this place was great. Very clean, super nice staff, and delicious food. We had complementary edamame while we looked over the menu, I ate a Ruben on GF bun, vegan Mac and cheese, and even got to have a pumpkin pie shooter for dessert. Will return to the place again and again.

The staff was very kind and knowledgeable on my multiple allergies. The gluten free and vegan options are clearly marked on the menu. The chef even came out and offered me a special sauce that he had made. Will definitely be back and recommend to others.

Cafe Evergreen was AMAZING! There are tons of GF choices and it's very safe for a celiac. I opted for the Santa Fe Salad with blackened shrimp! Fabulous! I also got The Tree Hugger smoothie. Excellent food and service! The baked sweet potato fries... They were out of this world!!! The BEST I've ever had. Highly recommend!

Everything about Evergreen is perfect. The atmosphere, gf menu, and knowledgeable wait staff is the best I’ve encountered in the area. My only disappointment is that I just discovered it. It’s a must for anyone who is vegan or Celiac/gluten intolerant.

I am a very sensitive celiac and rarely eat out. What a pleasure it was to find this gem! The staff was very knowledgeable about cross contamination and taking the necessary precautions to keep me safe. There were numerous options to choose from. I had the kelp stir fry with shrimp and it was amazing. I had no issues whatsoever and will definitely eat here again!

This review is short and sweet as this is a gluten free restaurant and the food is delicious! We’ve ate there many times (lunch and dinner) as we live in the area. Gluten free Mac and cheese, steak with gnocchi, cauliflower, tuna, salmon sandwich, and sweet potato fries all tasty!

Our meals (sirloin with potato gnocchi and the grilled eggplant stack) were fresh, DELICIOUS and very filling. Server wasn't too familiar with the GF world, but we just asked her to make sure the chef/kitchen was aware that we had to be GF because of celiac. Amazing meal and terrific service. I forgot to mention the dessert! I got a shot glass of an incredible key lime 'pie'. Unreal!! UPDATE: Went back a second time and that server was more familiar with the menu and gave us multiple suggestions and insight. Non-GF family was thrilled with their meals as . FANTASTIC!!!!!

Gluten free gnocchi!! Soo good! Also tons of other gf, veg and vegan options. Delicious! One weird thing is they have no gf bread for sandwiches so it will be more of a sit down place

Every time we're even close to the Cafe Evergreen, we make it a point to stop for lunch. We're never been disappointed & I have Celiac. Ingredients are always fresh. The brewed Kombucha was delicious.

Delicious GF and DF food at a reasonable price! The server was extremely knowledgeable about ingredients and menu. They had GF wraps and Udi's GF buns available. Sweet potato fries were homemade, GF and delicious! I ordered a reuben with DF island dressing, on a GF bun. The corned beef was delicious and I was completely satisfied. :) Will definitely return if we are ever in Nokomis again.

I first began eating here about a month after it moved up from Northport where it was already known and revered. The menu is varied, always organic and there are generally several gluten free items, including GF wraps, which are unusually good. As well, there are often daily specials and they are concocted with great imagination. Presentation is especially good and the staff is knowledgeable, quick, courteous and delightful. Your hosts, Ted and Annette Weingarten are often available for a quick chat or - often - checking to be sure everything is right. The location is interesting, too, should you want to look around the neighbourhod. Directly behind the restaurant is Rum Runners Antiques, voted Best In Nakomis for the second straight year. Wonderful items! And next door to that is the charming art gallery, The Cottage, displaying a wide variety of unique art, jewelry, pottery, photography and other art forms, very reasonably priced and of very high quality. Additonally, during "season", the third saturday of each month provides a delightful "Market On the Green" with a surfeit of both arts and crafts. You'll be back to this area often!

Exceptional lunch wrap. They use Udi's rolls and tortillas and the pesto chicken was outstanding. Great service and knowledgeable staff. Outdoor seating was noisy because of traffic. I indulged, too!

Fantastic experience. The menu has so many options- including entrees that kids will love. The staff was very conscientious of food allergens and very knowledgeable about ingredients in all of the dishes. Annie, the owner visited our table twice to check on us. Would highly recommend a visit if you're in the area!

Delicious black bean burger and red quinoa brown rice pilaf. Many GF and DF options. My biggest challenge was selecting just one of the amazing selection of "evergreen" juices and smoothies. Lunch service was great.
