At The Manatee Cafe, the eggs are organic and most of the produce is organically grown. Ask for more specifics on what is organic when ordering. The deli meats, cheeses and most of the breads are not organic. They offer many gluten free and vegan options.
The Manatee cafe serves breakfast and lunch only. The breakfast menu is extensive which includes typical breakfast fare with many gluten free options. Lunch includes sandwiches such as burritos, pitas or standard bread choices. They also serve salads, soups, and hot dishes.
What I Ordered
We ordered the breakfast burrito and gluten free pancakes. The wrap for the burrito was delish, better than a traditional wrap in taste and texture. The burrito itself was amazing, filled with sweet potato, organic scrambled eggs, hummus, avocado, sprouts and more. A hearty portion of yum in a tortilla! My son loved the pancakes, which were some of the best gluten free I’ve tasted. Fluffy and light, not dense like many gluten free pancakes.
The Manatee Cafe is located in a strip mall with the feel of an established neighborhood cafe, with older decor and informed staff.
The Manatee Cafe is a hidden gem in St Augustine. Although not all of their ingredients are organic or clean, they do offer many clean, vegan and gluten free food choices. Oh, and the food is definitely yum.
