Good service, better food

Located in what once was an indoor swimming pool for the well-to-do (19th Century), this small cafe is surrounded by trendy shops. We had a lunchtime soup-with-sandwich selection; very fresh baguette and cold cuts, excellent sauces. Wait staff was courteous and responsive -- took the initiative to... read more

We stopped here as part of our food tour and loved to eat in the old pool. We learned that the pool didn't work out so well when originally built because they did not have the modern equipment to clean and filter the pool so it did not stay clean. A very historical place. We had a sampling of escargot... More

Great building and food to match. A nice platter of escargots, artichokes Giovanni on top of linguine with a wine sauce and of course a Key lime pie to finish.

We had lunch here and it was well worth the visit. Food was wonderful, our server was excellent and overall just a great place to eat. There are antique shops all around the restaurant which is a must see for those who love antiques.

The Cafe Alcazar is located in what was once the swimming pool of the Hotel Alcazar. It's a unique location with a very high roof and galleries overhead where swimmers once entered the pool. The Cafe has live music from a guitar player, and the overall ambiance is very restful and pleasant. The menu is somewhat eclectic. The food is... More

I was so impressed. We thought we would spend an hour there, and ended up spending the whole morning. The most fascinating part was looking at what used to the Alkazar Hotel. The treasure hunt for the little ones was creative. Also enjoyed the music room presentation.

We travel to St Augustine at least once a year, our favorite city in Florida. We are natives so to have such a great place to drive 3 hours to is so worth the trip. We eat at Cafe Alcazar everytime we are in town. The food looks like Chef's from The Breakers Hotel work there, beautiful presentation of the... More

My daughter loves St. Augustine and asked for her 16 birthday party to be all through out the city. We brought all the girls to lunch, here at Cafe' Alcazar. It always has fabulous food, and such charm! It's in the oldest swimming pool in the USA!

The setting is awe-inspiring but so is the service and the cuisine. Prices are very reasonable, the musician there on some days is great.
