100% plant-based & vegan

We will be closed on Sunday 11/28 for some emergency maintenance.

See you again on Wednesday 12/01!

OPEN for dinner

Wednesday thru Sunday

5 - 9 p.m.

Globally inspired - locally sourced - made with LOVE! 

Sarasota's first 100% plant-based & vegan full service restaurant.

We are a small family business created and operated by mother Bella & daughter Kim in loving memory of our late husband and father.

"Kā Kāpā is Hawaiian for 'Papa's' and by choosing this name he is always with us!"

Dinner Reservation Required

We use high quality and mostly organic ingredients and all our dishes are made with LOVE and made to order to provide highest and freshest quality. We are a very small team and in order to plan better and to keep the waiting time to a minimum we have switched to reservation only.

Thank you and see you soon!
