“Fantastic Service, Delicious Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I've been to Tablespoon many times, and the service is always excellent. The food is very good though the variety is not wide. The desserts are delectable and even though some are a bit pricey, it might be worth it depending on what you buy. The owners make you feel very warm and welcome. Only thing is, it takes a while for you to get your food. If you're in a hurry, drinks and desserts might be more ideal, but if you have time to relax and enjoy the great ambience (and free Wifi), go ahead and try the food, you won't be sorry!

“Inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

After driving by this coffee shop practically a hundred times (since I live in Tunapuna) I decided to pop in today as I had alot of projects to complete.

I had a mocha chiller and it was delicious. I must say the ambiance was very relaxing with the soft jazz playing in the background. The service was great and I was so inspired to create.

As a graphic designer your head needs to be clear to conceptualize and Tablespoon was a great spot to just sit and get on my laptop and just create!

“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

I saw this place from the outside a while now and did not think it was worth "my curiosity"... Was I wrong! I met my wife there for afternoon coffee and a snack and I was absolutely surprised. The ambience was welcoming, the coffee and snacks were great, and the service was fabulous. The only problem was... some customers did not want to leave and stayed for hours I am told! That creates a shortage of tables for customers to sit...

“Refreshing in St Augustine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Tablespoon Coffee and Dessert House is located where you least expect it. This funky space is a breath of fresh air in the area. Dishes are prepared by a talented and creative young lady with the most fabulous attitude. Chef 'Bean' as she is fondly called is happy to whip us something that is not on the menu board.

Consideration has been given to vegetarians, the 'Tun-a- puna' sandwich is a triple decker overstuffed tasty tuna sandwich and the crusty Italian bread topped with thick mozarella cheese, capers, mixed olives and Italian herbs are two outstanding choices.

Britt and Starbucks coffees are served.

Tablespoon has become so popular that people call to reserve tables!
