Great breakfast

This small little cafe has amazing omelets and even better service. Sit at the bar and you can chat with Laura who knows all the locals. You would be missing out if you don't get a biscuit (yum, fresh from the oven) and a side of hollandaise to go with your eggs.

The food was delicious and the service entertaining (Laura is great!). The prices were very reasonable. We ate there both mornings. The second morning (Tuesday) we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table -- it only seats about 30 people. I would wait to eat here.

My husband and I stopped in here on a very hot day. Although Harbor View Café is very small, with only a few tables, it was almost empty at 2 PM. We got a table by the window overlooking the waterfront. It is a lovely view, and we could have sat there all day. The restaurant is extremely clean looking.... More

Vacationing in St Augustine FL, a gentleman at the American Legion recommended Mary's Harbor View Cafe. What a great recommendation! My son said the biscuits are the best he has ever had and my daughter & me agree that the biscuits and gravy is absolutely great. Definitely a must for your visit to the area. But make sure you come... More

I am sad to say that my experience here was less then stellar. I had been here before and thought it was fabulous so was extremely disappointing. We sat at the front window and since it was 8:30 the sun was beaming in and they pulled the shade down to shield from the sun, keep the place cool etc. The... More

On our recent trip to St. Augustine we asked several locals for a good place to go for breakfast. All say Mary's Harbor View Cafe. We were surprised to find that it is an extremely small cafe. We had to wait awhile, but we were assured by all those we spoke to in the cafe that it was worth the... More

This place had reasonable prices and fresh food that was delicious! Our only complaint was the wait. We came in at 1 and it was very busy with one waiter, but we will definitely be coming back.

This place is small, but always packed with both tourists and locals. Portion sizes are massive and a good value. Food quality is above average -- love their breakfast potatoes. The hop on hop off trolley stops right in front of the cafe, so access is easy.
