My mom and I ate there when we were in town. Everything was just lovely. The quiet eclectic interior with an unassuming exterior. The staff was wonderful, very helpful explaining anything we had questions about. The food was truly amazing. The presentation was beautiful too but the taste was unbelievable. I will be back for sure!!!

As stated in the title this is my first experience with this type of food. I am always excited to try new things and after reading so many great reviews about the food being as good or better tasting than the "unhealthy versions" I had to try for myself. If you are a vegan or have dietary restrictions this may... More

A full menu of raw, gluten free, vegetarian options with full flavor. There are breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Appetizer options and even a full desert menu. Service was very good. Maybe the best restaurant like this I've ever visited. There is parking in the rear; its walking distance from the old town, but not close.

We visited this café when we had a vacation on St. Augustine beach.The atmosphere here was amazing, and the staff were extremely friendly. There are so many food for vegetarian although I am not but I really like vegetable and the food here is really fantastic. Very creative menu and interesting artwork. Strongly recommended!

I'm a local and I thought that I would give it a try. And I was thoroughly impressed. I thought that it being vegan I would find something missing in the flavor, boy was I wrong. I had the special, which was a Mediterranean platter, it was perfect. I will be adding this to my rotation of favorites. And I... More

I'm a bit of a health nut and so I don't eat gluten or dairy, so this place was right up my alley. And they definitely did not disappoint. I went with a friend who isn't a health nut and even he was impressed. The flavors were fantastic.

Present Moment has absolutely fantastic vegan food. They excelled in making tasty flavor combinations that even my meat-loving husband enjoyed. I had their special of the day, a nearly raw (except for the tempeh topping) pizza, and my husband had the zucchini pasta. It was all delicious -- as was the hummus appetizer with the homemade tortilla chips (they were... More

To the young lady that was our server, focus less on your cellphone and friends that come visit you and more on your customers! To management and owners: a suggestion, do not have cellphones on you while working. Food and drinks were good.

Not fancy & from the outside we didn't know what to expect. Inside art & fun vibe. We had 2 couches & a table set for 4 near the window with a piece of abstract stained glass in front of it. 2 pieces of art were behind one couch against a wall. A carafe of water with lemon & lime... More
