The cutest coffee shop in town. Small establishment, but friendly staff and beautiful view outside! Best salted caramel latte I have ever had! Missing the taste of coffee already!

Visited here due to the reviews. Firstly the server behind the counter a young ponytailed man was having a right old strop about something.

After walking around the Old Town for a few hours, we stopped in to listen to the live music and enjoy some coffee and cocoa. The piano player was very friendly and enjoyable.

This place is awesome. Very small and quaint. You sit in a beautiful garden . The cappuccinos are amazing. The lemon bar and sinful it's so good. If you are in the city you should definitely stop here and grab a snack and coffee . ☕️

The garden was lovely the coffee excellent and the cookie was to dye for best ever. I would advise anyone visiting the area to stop get a latte and stroll the streets or sit and enjoy your coffee

We loved coming here to sit and enjoy a coffee a year before and looked forward to coming back. It's a charming outdoor cafe with wonderful coffee.

Ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning during the Christmas lights. I had eggs Benedict, my boyfriend had a frittata. Both were truly amazing! Very fresh, and a manageable portion. The outdoor garden seating was perfect! It's dog friendly, as are most places in St. Augustine. No alcohol is served ( aka mimosas) but that didn't stop us. I will... More
