Delicious

The building is small but perfect. The place was busy and the food was excellent. When we come back for our next visit we will most definitely be going back.

Here's a restaurant that makes you feel like your home. Everything comes out quickly, fresh and perfectly cooked, every time we've eaten here. The biscuits could really be called small loaves of bread. These fluffy homemade treats are huge and perfect for sausage and gravy or just butter and jam. Can't wait to go back !!!

Referred to this restaurant by another visitor to St. Augustine and it is a winner. Small family owned right across street from the bay, everyone treated you as if they had known you forever. We had breakfast there and it was excellent. Just traditional family style food cooked right, generous portions, reasonable price. Would definitely return there on another visit... More

What amazing biscuits this place had! It was so nice to be right on the water for our Saturday morning breakfast. The place was bustling and the food basic and delicious. Omelets were very well prepared. Can't go wrong with Mary's

I love breakfast and especially appreciate a place that makes breakfast well. Up until now I thought the best breakfast I ever had at a restaurant was in a little place in Wisconsin, and it still may be. But, the biscuits and cinnamon French toast with fresh strawberry a and whip cream at Harbor View Cafe in St Augustine was... More

Best breakfast around. It fills up early. Sit with your back to the street to avoid morning sun. The place faces east. This is a must go while in St Augustine.

Mary's Harbor View Café is a great place to have breakfast while in St. Augustine. It is located downtown with a great view of the Castillo De San Marcos, Bridge of Lions and the harbor. We went on Sunday at about 11 AM and were fortunate enough to get seated almost immediately but there is typically a wait. The servers... More

stumbled across this small cafe on the waterfront while staying right down the street at the Hilton. Had an excellent breakfast. Everything was well prepared and there was great attention to detail and presentation. One of the best breakfast places I have eaten at anywhere.

Okay, this is a five star BREAKFAST review... can't speak for lunch/dinner, but if breakfast is any indication, all meals will be top shelf. What a great little place... only seats about 30-35 people, we waited on our 2nd visit and it was worth it. Enjoyed the "Little Bubba" both days (eggs/sausage/biscuit&gravy) and it was fantastic! Best sausage gravy ever!... More

We received a $5 coupon from the Best Western next door and were given credit on our bill. We were there about 8:30 and found a line but it moved quickly. Very good breakfast and a reasonable price. Enjoy!
