Good Food and great service

My friends and I go to FA Cafe often. The breakfasts are great, prices are great and the service is great. They don't have air conditioning and the place is really small but very authentic beachy feel. This is where all the locals go.

Never again. Usually try to support other local businesses, especially Filipina owned businesses, but the service and lack of quality of food is shameful. I just paid 12.92 for a hot dog, over cooked fried "Filipino fish fritters". Not an accurate representation of Filipino food ,from my experience. Left to sit for over 30 min , watched other tables sat... More

I have been here twice and every time I have been here I have really enjoyed my visit. Staff was amazing and wonderful to deal with. I had a black bean soup with banana in it and few beers to finish off a great day at the beach. a great breakfast spot too..

Always on our list of stops while in St.Augustine, Margies FA Cafe has great Omlettes,homemade biscuts and such for breakfast and plus wings, fish tacos and other stuff that you will love for lunch. Genuine beach dwellers stop for yankees who may never go back North!

Our favorite place for breakfast on St. Augustine Beach, very small, food is fresh and made to order, everything is good and it's the place the locals go for their morning meal. Very casual, funky, tiny and terrific!

Nothing fancy and it's not very big, but there's a lot to look at on the walls!! Quite a few breakfast choices too. Margie's a great cook. Our omelets were great! The service was great as well, kept our coffee cups full. A nice little place to start your day on the beach!

On the way back home it was suggested by the locals and locals have it right.....the best breakfast the whole trip. Margie is the best cook ever!!! If I knew earlier it would of been an everyday breakfast stop. Great food and even better prices.

This is my favorite place on the beach. The owner is the sweetest lady ever and the staff is laid back and friendly. This is not a very big place, although the location is great! You must go for breakfast and try their M&M pancakes... You heard correct, M&M PANCAKES!! Also, this is a great place to have a drink... More

Locals going here for years. Walked in, no greeting. Sat outside waited 10 minutes. No menus. Walked back inside to leave, cook just waved goodbye. Too bad Margie. Just lost two locals for good. Lunch at Taco Shop was great.
