A Gem in St Augustine!

I ate here three times this past winter. Unfortunately, the first time was a Saturday night and the service was horrible. I think they forgot about us even though we were a party of seven. We had to wait a very long time to order and then to get our food. We had much better service the next two... read more

We're both vegetarians and really enjoyed this place! There are many choices and it doesn't sound like you could go wrong with any of them. We got the Zucchini Pasta and the Macro Burger, both delicious. We also got wonderful desserts (Apple Cobbler and Banana Split). Nice place, good ambiance, organic ingredients, real food.

Had lunch here twice while in St Augustine and they delivered on healthy quality food. Servers were friendly and attentive. Nice menu and dishes to choose from. Nice funky atmosphere a little way from downtown.

The service was wonderful and the setting was quite lovely. Three of us ordered the budda bowl and it was quite bland -- that day it was lentils in coconut curry over rice. The avocado soup (the day's special) was quite good. There are lots of very creative options -- but I was looking for something simple and tasty that... More

My friend and I were getting a bit tired of the food and the bar scene along the main drag, so we came here. OH MY GOSH, this was one of the best decisions of our entire trip! I'm vegetarian, leaning vegan; my friend is pretty solidly in the carnivorous camp. Still, we both thought this place was frickin' fantastic.... More

As vegetarians there seemed to be little options in St Augustine besides the usual pizza and/or pasta. We went to the Present Moment Cafe for supper, not knowing what to expect. The food was incredibly creative and healthy. The Cafe adapted many meat dishes into vegan/vegetarian food that looked AND tasted good. When busy, it can take a while to... More

The food is prepared so creative and deliciously you wonder if it's actually vegan cuisine. Everything is so fresh and has a lovely flavor. I have visited twice. The environment is clean and pleasing. I like the low table in the corner, by the window with the couches. I'm still dreaming of this pesto-ish zucchini pasta I had. Omg. I... More

We had a nice light dinner here. It was a little hard to find something our kids would eat, but they were willing to work with us. I found the portions to be a little small, better than being stuffed though. Enjoyed the live music while we ate.

I had the tacos and a purple haze smoothie. Both were so so yummy! I ordered tiramisu cheesecake and cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream to go. When we ate the desserts later, it was like heaven!! I will definitely go back!!

You have to go here! It is small, quaint and most likely one of the best meals we've had! We had the vegan nachos and the mango samosa. Both were delicious! The flavors and seasonings were pure perfection. This restaurant proves that 'good for you' food can and IS amazing! Awesome.
