Off the Beaten Path--and Worth the Walk!

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... read 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.

Love this place as a vegan. too bad it is not closer to home. Wish we could have eaten here more times this trip (not open Sundays is a big bummer & frig was broken another day so they were closed). This visit they accommodated our need to leave fast and served wonderful nachos, salsa and guac are superb. Always... More

I am a vegetarian and love to cook at home and experiment with flavorings, etc. I had the Budda bowl and it was pretty tasteless and bland. It amounted to a bunch of garbanzo beans and white minute rice with a very few pieces of vegetables and spinach in a little bit of tumeric broth. My mother had a collard... More

The best vegan food in Northeast Florida. The hummus is incredibly smooth, while the kale/pineapple smoothies are spot on!

This was a nice vegan bistro in St Augustine. We went for dinner one night about two hours prior to close. We ordered the salsa and guacamole appetizer and I had the Buddha bowl. Carafe of water with lemon and cucumber slices at each table with a nice a touch. The bowl, salsa and guacamole were all bland. The server... More
