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.

We walked here from the state park for breakfast and had the burritto bowl. It had potatoes, avocado, jalapenos, two eggs, salsa, sour cream, onions and sausage all mixed together. It was very good. This small place has a cool vibe and a friendly staff.

We have been eating here for a few years and it used to have a great menu and good food with a fun beach atmosphere. We were excited to hear that Margie (the cook for years) had taken over the restaurant, but sadly, she is no longer the cook and the food was terrible. Upon arrival the staff was completely... More

Do not judge a book by its cover. The food and staff here was the best we had in st. Augustine. The welcoming atmosphere and to die for breakfast will definitelybring us back again

Sometimes the wait is a little lengthy. It's a small place with just one cook but it's well worth the wait. It's delicious and has a fun atmosphere

This is a very small, unassuming place, but cute, with a nice "beachy" feel to it, nothing fancy. The food is good, some nice exotic choices. Very friendly owner made sure everything was to our liking. The only drawback is a tiny parking for 2 or 3 cars only, otherwise try to find a spot behind the building or across... More

I was disappointed in the dry chicken sandwich. Maybe there were better things on the menu that I didn't notice. I think they should stick to hot dogs and hamburgers. And lower their food prices accordingly.

This was our first stop when we got to St. Aug.. A tiny place, but the food is delicious!! The staff are very down to earth and friendly! We ended up eating there the next day for breakfast again!
