    Enjoyed this restaurant and had breakfast there twice in three days. Great gluten free options. Service left a little to be desired on day 2 but otherwise would highly recommend to celiacs.

    Tried the tofu avocado grilled cheese gluten free. It wasn't like a typical grilled cheese with lots of melted cheese, the avocado stole the show. It was very tasty, I would definitely have it again. Delicious hash browns too :)

    We ate here for lunch yesterday and it was so good we came back for breakfast today! We had a gluten free chicken wrap with hummus and chips for lunch and a gluten free burrito with hashbrowns for breakfast. AMAZING!!! We split meals both times and portions were perfect! Definitely a must to visit if you're looking for delicious, organic and gluten free food.

    I LOVE eating here! I have anaphylactic fish and shellfish allergies, allergic to dairy, & celiac diseases (I cross react to corn). They take my allergies and celiac disease very seriously.

    GF pancakes were so tough I had a hard time cutting them. They were very heavy and dry.

    The most amazing tofu scrambler and homemade hot sauce. Even the coffee they serve is superb. They truly care about the product they sell and About their guests! 😍

    Simply wonderful. Everything we tried was fresh and prepared to order-simple ingredients prepared to perfection, as the saying goes. I happily ate there two days in a row, despite a half-hour drive. My husband, a vegetarian, and my Aunt, an omnivore, were also quite pleased. I loved it. Wish it were closer (I live in MA, and haven't found anything remotely like Manatee Cafe)

    Everything was amazing! My little boys loved the fact that they could eat bagels and pancakes in a restaurant. The selection was wonderful.

    Excellent GF menu choices. Everything is made fresh to order. I enjoyed a veggie wrap with beans and rice. Just delicious! They "get it" here. :) Thanks to the owner/manager/chef/staff. It made my trip through St. Augustine very easy.

    Primarily vegetarian with vegan and gluten free options. The veggie omelet and hash browns are delish! Don't pass by this hidden gem!
