Eclectic food, interesting decor and super generous portions- all at a very reasonable price. We were there for lunch, and friends and work associates were meeting each other to share and enjoy the food. Small amount of parking - so carpool if you can.

I came here for lunch with my family for the first time today. The service from Catie was awesome. She accommodated out big party and young son perfectly. All the food we got was great but the curry shrimp salad and the Cuban sandwich were the stars of the day. Until we ordered dessert, the mud pie and the butterscotch... More

We were there for the first time with friends and it was cozy to be sure. We were in a private type room with the two of us and about 5-6 additional friends. This is an old house with the rooms converted into dining type rooms, so each one is different. It is off the beaten track and usually only... More

My husband and I had lunch there. They have a somewhat limited menu but the ingredients taste very fresh and they buy from local suppliers. My husband said his burrito could have used more flavor, but we are from Colorado and used to spicier burritos. I had the Mahi Mahi tacos that I thought were good. Everyone who worked there... More

Excellent staff and the manager was very interested in knowing that you are satisfied. My Cuban sandwich was excellent and there are food options for vegetarians to meat lovers. Some of the menu items can be spicy, ask first before ordering.

We live in St Augustine and have friends who have raved about the restaurant but somehow we never went. Was looking for a different restaurant and decided to try ... how sorry are we that we didn't go sooner!! The food was delicious, everything fresh and flavorful. My husband asked what is the one dish most people order and it... More

Went here for the first time for lunch. I had the thai chicken salad with peanut sauce. It was delicious and more than enough for a large lunch. The waitress was very helpful and willing to make changes to personalize any dish. My companion had the mahi which was good, however the salsa that she had was not a flavor... More
