I am not a vegetarian but my best friend is vegan, so I don't mind eating veggie for her. Most of the time, it is a really good experience and it is nice to eat so healthy and fresh. The food here is ok. I have been to quite a few vegan/vegetarian restaurants with her and in comparison, it is... More

This was an excellent spot for Sunday brunch, if you are looking for something satisfying that will not weigh you down. The dishes were flavorful and the service was quick and with a smile. My favorite dish was the shaakshooka, which was served as a poached egg in tomato based sauce with sauteed onions and peppers. The falafel salad was... More

Easily walkable from the Dali Museum, Mahaffey Theater, Mese 119 was a great choice for lunch, and we're sure it would be just as good for dinner. We had roasted cauliflower, tabouli (made with quinoa instead of bulghur wheat, so it's gf), and two kinds of hummus. All were excellent--both presentation and flavors. Service was also excellent. We'll return ...... More

We come here everytime we are on vacation---it's worth the drive from the beaches. This is a middle eastern vegetarian restaurant where everything is fresh and delicious. Even if you are a meat eater you would like this place. The Flat Iron Steak Sandwich is always the best thing! But we've had many other items on the menu and they... More

Downtown and looking for something different... Well here's the place, we got a nice welcome and sat quickly. Steve was our server and he made us welcome with his laid back style and sense of humor, when the food came out it was nicely prepared and very tasty and NO meat! It's very relaxed there and worth going to and... More

This place could fool any meat eatery. There fake meats taste better than the real things. There chicken has so much favor, and the steak melts in your mouth. This place is always a good choice for lunch.

You will never miss meat when you dine here. The apps portions are small, so order several to share. Service is super friendly. Falafel is among the best I've had.

All vegetarian food. You won't even notice it isn't animal protein. So great try the Moroccan mint drink! Drooling thinking about it. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Don't forget to save room for dessert.

Girls trip to St. Pete with my daughter, decided to stop by this great little vegetarian joint minutes from the Dali Museum in downtown St. Pete. This small restaurant was fresh from the food to the bright decor. I've had falafel many times and theirs was probably some of the best I've tasted (crispy on the outside, tender on the... More
