Pizza Du Jour

Cafe is located outside & behind the Lightner Museum. Enjoyed the chance to eat in a former pool, where the rich was stayed & swam. Great pizza too!

This is restaurant is actually the original indoor swimming pool of the Alcazar Hotel built by Henry Flagler. The location is great when touring downtown St. Augustine, you can be dropped at the door by the trolley. The menu was varied & service was wonderful. The piano player was an added treat. I had the crepes which were just okay.... More

Went for lunch after doing the tour, The food was horrible! I got sick to my stomach. Had the Cafe Melt. Hot chicken served on cold bread. Bread was to thick. The coleslaw was nasty. The chicken cuts were to big for the sandwich.

This was my second time with my mom visiting Cafe Alcazar. The first time we ate there what we ordered was amazing since it was on their special menu that they had. We decided to try something new. The sandwich was alright but seemed to have a little bit of a kick to it, and I probably wouldn't want to... More

We celebrated a birthday at lunch. The atmosphere is unique, the food and service was great and the live piano music was the icing on the cake. We all enjoyed the day and would recommend .

This restaurant is at the Lightner Museum. It has a side entrance on the outside of the Museum. The menu changes all the time but the quality is always good. The deserts are homemade and are fantastic. Great service, great prices and you are eating in what used to be the pool of this grand hotel. You could just imagine... More

My girlfriend and I frequently visit St. Augustine and we always make sure to hit Cafe Alcazar. Our most recent visits (there were two) were outstanding. The food is always excellent and the service is top-notch. I would be negligent if I didn't mention Sean in this review. He was our server both times and he is a consummate professional.... More

This restaurant, which is attached to the Lightner Museum, was once a swimming pool. In fact, the largest indoor swimming pool. We were not expecting the food to be anything special; we just ran in since we were not finished with the museum. However, the meal was excellent. Everything was delcious and the presentation was lovely. The manager was our... More

The food was excellent as was the service. The atmosphere is a little unusual given that the restaurant is located in what was once a swimming poo in an old hotel. The restaurant is surrounded by the old building and on the same floor are several antique shops. While we were eating lunch, the pianist arrived as that added to... More
