Dirty floors. Sloppy looking staff. Uncaring service. Average food. This place feels more like a poorly run college cafeteria than a primo cafe. Hope this the exception and not the rule.

I have been visiting this place for over 2 years now, and till my last visit, a couple of days back, I have nothing but good things to say about it. I always get sandwiches, oh boy, good good. The coffee is the best out of all the restaurant I have been in Jacksonville area, hands down! Small and excellent... More

Gelato is oh-so-yummy! A little pricey but it's a tourist area, so don't be surprised. Also tried the chicken panini with a side of ranch dressing for dipping - delicious :-)

This cafe has a wonderful, "Old World" atmosphere and delicious food. The paninis are excellent, as are their creative lattes. They have gelato in the front, and you can order everything else in the back. It's also a bit more affordable compared to most of the places in the historic district. Highly recommend this delightful little cafe!

Cannot get gelato (my fav) in Daytona Beach area. Walking along St George street and decided to try. Friendly staff let us sample the variety of flavors before we settled on which to buy. Chose the blueberry vanilla. It was delicious. Try it. Once you eat really good gelato as is made here, you won't want ice cream again.

Treat yourself and jump ship from eating ice cream and try gelato. You will not be disappointed if you hate the icy, bland and heavy feeling of ice cream. They have plenty of flavor options and you can try a sample before you make a purchase and go back to order your flavors. The prices range from $3 ish for... More

The paninis are to die for! With chips and a dill pickle spear on the side, it was almost too much to consume at one time. My granddaughter's salad was also very generous. We followed our meal with some true Italian gelato! yum!! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will make it a "must" stop there again the next time... More

We had lunch at this cafe because it is one of our must visits while we are in St. Augustine. The sandwiches and salads are wonderful, but the best thing about this cafe is the gelato. My husband and I shared a Rock panini which was very good. The surprise was I jokingly told the gentleman taking the order we... More
