Decent cup of coffee in a charming spot.

I'm pretty particular about my coffee, worked as and trained baristas for 8 years, and this was a welcome change of pace. During my visit there was only one barista working, and she was a little backed up, but she acknowledged all the customers, apologized for the delay, and gave you her undivided... read more

When ever we come to St. Augustine , we have to come to Crucial Coffee and get the Tai coffee. Because it was so hot , we got it iced and it was tasty!

Our Favorite Coffee place - a destination for all who visit. This is my favorite place to stop, for magnets, for the wall art, for all the different coffees that are offered, for the wait staff. This is a place I take all my visitors there is something for everyone here.

This place is tiny wooden shack. They make great espresso and are open late. They share a court yard with a great restaurant called the Gourmet Hut. Highly recommended.

My husband and I love this place! It is a former blacksmith's shop built in the 1700's I believe (it's really old!). The floor is worn brick and the entire place is just charming! The coffees are delicious too! My husband loves Dunkin Donuts coffee and I only like Starbucks (my husband calls it a frou-frou drink), but we both... More

The drinks here were really tasty but the price was a little high in my opinion. We purchase a iced latte and an iced coffee and it came out to $10 for the 2. I know lattes are usually a little more but iced coffee is usually a little cheaper. Not sure of his name but the guy working the... More

the WORST coffee experience EVER!! the service sucked by some anti-social guy who didn't even say hello, goodbye or thank you. Ordered a iced Chai tea - YUCK!! Saying it was Tasteless is being kind. it was dirty cinnamon water. And it was "blended" for whatever reason cause I wanted iced. it was 3/4 ice and no chai tea. It... More

This is the cutest coffee shop I've ever seen! I got an iced Milky Way mocha that was really good. It was the perfect drink for a hot summer day!

We escaped a late afternoon rain storm inside this great little coffee shop and learned of its history as the old towns blacksmith shop. We ended up chatting with Michelle for about 30 minutes and had a nice chat with the owner as well. Great coffee & ice cream in a wonderful little shop. Thank God for the rain or... More
