We thought we would try something different and had lunch at The Present Moment Cafe. It is small and eclectic. We arrived at 12:45 and grabbed the last table for 2. This place is popular and it was filled to capacity, even the bar chairs had a family of 5. We ordered the cup of Creamy Mushroom soup and the... More

My husband often goes to St. Augustine on business and The Present Moment is a trusted restaurant for clean, fresh, healthy food even for those of us who aren't vegetarians. On this most recent trip, I had the herb croquette with eggplant and zucchini pasta and it was absolutely delicious! I have food allergies and the staff is very sensitive... More

As a vegetarian, I appreciate being in a place where I can order anything off the menu without worrying or settling for second-best food. What I sometimes have problems with is convincing my carnivore friends that vegetarian food is tasty food. This place helped. We all decided to order the daily special - eggplant ravioli over zucchini pasta. My sister... More

We are not vegans or vegetarians, but after a week-long southern road trip, we desperately needed some healthy food. What a find! Incredibly fresh, inventive, raw food with amazing flavor. filling and satisfying. Happily no soy or dairy ingredients... Mainly needs and seeds used to create sauces. Had the hummus, zucchini pasta, burrito, and our children had the PBJ and... More

Being a vegetarian, it is a treat to eat somewhere that I can order ANYTHING that's on the menu. This place was a true delight. The food was completely delicious. The staff was friendly and the facility is comfortable and appealing. I liked the food so much that we went twice and purchased their cookbook. I would go there all... More

I am a local and I went to Present Moment with two family members last month, and can I just say that the food is DELICIOUS? it was my first time in there, which is shocking because I am vegetarian and I'm always on the hunt for some new restaurant meal. Wow, it was so yummy and fresh! I had... More

I'm staying at a place across the street from this restaurant and have eaten here several times, and will be eating here several more times before I depart Saint Augustine. Its hard to compare this restaurant to anything else because there just isn't a restaurant like this that I have found. The food is unbelievable. Its vegan, but you would... More

My wife and I went to The Present Moment Cafe during a recent stay in St. Augustine because it was listed as gluten friendly. We found it to be just that. The ambiance was warm and inviting. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
