This cafe is located in what used to be the pool of the Lightner Museum. We ate lunch there one day and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and moderately priced. The wait staff were all well trained. But when all is said and done, I still think the biggest draw is atmosphere.

Interesting setting if you like history, staff are efficient, food is good. If you have gluten or dairy intolerances, there seems to be no accommodations for these fairly common issues, if only to have something on the menu that has no dairy or no gluten. Worth trying but could be better.

This is a great spot for lunch. It is only open from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The service is great and the food is creative. The entrance is on Granada St. outside the Lightner Museum. It is in the area where the swimming pool of the Hotel Alcazar (now the Lightner Museum) once was. The cafe is surrounded by... More

The restaurant is located where an old luxury hotel had a swimming pool. It is an unusual setting and part of the Leitner Museum building. They are only open until 3:00pm, so, although the tables were covered with cloth tablecloths, people were dressed casually. We spent our time in the Museum and then had a late lunch. We love artichokes,... More

This place is in such an interesting, historic location. How cool is it to eat at the end of an old indoor pool. It was beautiful! The place smelled so good when we walked in! The food was wonderful as well !

As a luncheon place it was super, but the real fun was knowing we were in what had once been a swimming pool in a luxurious hotel. (Women allowed only in the shallow end.) See the review of the Lightner Museum.

For our small St. Augustine wedding we contacted Café Alcazar to see if they would reserve a table for our family to celebrate our "wedding reception lunch". They were extremely nice, welcoming, and helpful and said it would be no problem. My fiancé (now husband) was able to drop off a small cake and they kept it in their fridge... More

Today I visit the Café Alcazar, after a several month hiatus. I was warmly greeted by my favorite waiter in Saint Augustine, Sean, who recommended something new on their menu –warm duck salad. I am normally leery of duck salad, having had some of the best duck in the world while on a lengthy visit to Taiwan. Taipei duck, made... More

This is a "must do" in St. Augustine. The menu was interesting and the food was great. But the atmosphere was best of all.
