Palmer’s Story

The Palmers proudly took ownership of the Nutritious You Cafe in October of 2020 during one of the most difficult times in history to be in the restaurant business. They move forward despite the obstacles to providing healthier “fast and casual” food options for the community.

They created a plant-based movement where they could offer healthy, non-processed meals and redefined the meaning of “fast food.”

At Nutritious You Cafe they use only quality ingredients.

They offer whole food plant-based, kosher, and gluten-free food options. Many of their dishes are homemade.

Everything is made with your health and the health of our planet in mind. Their Siesta Key location is one of the “only” fully plant-based cafés on siesta key. They are fully committed to keeping everything free from animal products.

The Cafes are a labor of love for them where they enjoy hearing countless stories of people who have transformed their lives with plant-based eating.

Thank you for supporting them and helping to make a difference in the world!

Meet Marina

Marina Palmer has worked for Nutritious You Cafe from the very beginning. As a certified personal trainer she always had a passion for helping someone reach the healthiest version of themselves. In 2020 when everyone was walking away from business, Marina worked closely with her family, Mario Palmer, and Carey Palmer to promote the plant-based movement. She quickly dove into running the Siesta Key Location. At only 24 years old, she now fully runs both Palmer and Nutritious You locations. See Our Menu Items



“Delicious coffee, smoothies, juices, and vegan food. Very relaxed atmosphere with health conscious vegan options for every taste. Highly recommend- the staff is professional and friendly. I would rate more than 5 stars if I could”– Natalie R.

“I’ve been to this restaurant twice and it was great both times. I’ve tried the Philly cheese steak, rueben, nachos and spring rolls, and all items were filling and delicious! The cheese steak was really similar to a meat/dairy one, except you felt lighter after you ate it. The cheese sauce tastes like the real deal too! Nice desserts too! Definitely worth checking out, even if you aren’t vegan. “– Jim H
