I just returned from a relaxing Keys vacation and came back with a Slow Food Restaurant find in Key West!
We stayed at the Islander Resort in Islamorada….our favorite place to stay as the grounds are beautiful and they have kitchenettes which is great for people with families or anyone who would like to save a little money on eating out every meal.

The first night we watched the sunset and ate at Lorelei-a great restaurant right across the street…we rode our bikes everywhere!
Indian Summer Salad – Creamy Mix of Chickpeas, Quinoa, Carrots, Raisins, Onion with Indian Spices Over Mixed Greens with House Vinaigrette
This salad…..oh my gosh. Protein rich with chickpeas, quinoa and nuts, lots of fresh veggies and Indian spices-I loved the weight and mix of flavors.
help yourself cafe -almost everything can be made gluten free They made my daughter a GF chicken wrap with lettuce and apples.
help yourself cafe has a vegan lasagna with layers of zucchini. Next time I’ll be trying that!
Some of the info that really resonated with me is that they use all whole grains, no GMO, no dairy (coconut is the alternative), fresh juices and everything is prepared from scratch. Can you see why this was my kind of place?
That night we ate at Morada Bay – my favorite in Islamorada!

Monday, while everyone else was driving back up in traffic I could beat on a bike, we hit the pool and did some shopping.
There is an outdoor world there wish a really cool fish tank.
The last night there we ate at Islamorada Fish Company. Our waiter was very nice and the view was gorgeous but the food was ok. I asked if they make their on dressing and they said no. That is my telltale way to tell the freshness and quality of the food.
