    • Hi Jacqueline, sorry no new vegetarian restaurants on this list. (Salt N’ Pepper does have many vegetarian restaurants on its menu.) The vegetarian restaurants that we’re aware of are The Youthful Vegan Cafe & Store in St. James, New Earth Organic Cafe in Woodbrook, Veg Out in St. Augustine, Namaste India Restaurant in Freeport.


  1. After appearing on your list for several months without any opening, Wanda’s Waffles is actually opening in Santa Cruz (I am only a messenger, haha). At Cruz Plaza, opposite Green Market
