Outstanding Vegan Restaurant!

The Eggplant Wrap was the most perfect I have eaten. This cafe is the finest vegan restaurant in many states. A must visit if you are in St. Augustine. We have dropped in for lunch the last 4 visits to the area. I is a favorite.

Their menu, and ingredients used, surpass most vegan eateries. Along with fair prices and a very comfortable atmosphere, this is a spot that ranks among the best vegan day cafes in the country. Try the Zucchini Pesto Pasta and Tacos of Life and you'll get a good idea of the spectrum of offerings Present Moment has, not too mention you... More

This place is a delicious stop whether you're vegan or not. I am not, but enjoy partaking in vegan and raw dining and this place hit the spot! The restaurant is quaint and clean with about 6-10 tables, a nice bar to sit at and a comfy couch cubby right by the front window. The service is quick and friendly... More

I've been going to this restaurant for the last 5 years and always enjoyed it, but I certainly have to say that the quality of the food has gone done since last year. We went there tonight and ordered one drink, starters and 2 main dishes. Well we waited for 40 minutes and no drink and no starters....so we decided... More

After spending 3 weeks in Japan I was shocked at the awful service and incompetent staff at this restaurant. Of course in Japan they bow and smile and service is like a religion. I sat there and waited close to 1 hours with no salad or drink. I watched the waitress chat and flirt with a customer at the bar.... More

We had the days special soup, a lobster type (but Vegan) bisque of some sort. My wife loved it. For our main course my wife chose a Buddah Bowl, loved it. I had... More

Healthy! It is nice to have a place that cares about what you eat. It is mostly raw produce made in a variety of ways. You'll be surprised food can taste this good. Check out the menu. The service was great too. We are so happy we stopped here. We'll be back.

This was our first time. A wonderful and warm welcome. The dining room is comfortable and we found the menu choices to be varied and interesting. The rubbed kale salad was the best. Our entrees were the truffle Alfredo on zucchini pasta. It was rich and delicious. The nachos were also tasty, fresh and satisfying. A great unusual place.

West of the old city on King Street, you will find Present Moment - the best and most creative vegetarian, non diary, non gluten meals. I say meals because the flavors are deep, unique and satisfying. Have a real meal here. If you are a vegetarian, you know what I mean. If you are not, and want to try paleo... More
