“great food, even better atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is where the locals go. Great food, coffee, tea, & gifts. Very ecletic feel :) I loved the decor-very green & new age. I love their breakfast wraps-and their salsa is yummmmy!!

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

My family and I were here on vacation and I will admit we are Starbucks customers. We found a little coffee shop and were in love with it! If this coffee shop was in our area, we would be switching. :) We met the owner who is very sweet and the staff is wonderful. They are truly there for their customers no matter if you are a local or a tourist. The atmosphere is lovely! I would highly recommend going if you are looking for excellent customer service and a welcome home feeling. They have everything from coffee to smoothies along with food. We will definitely come back to City Coffee Company and I am sad we were only there on a vacation.

“I miss this place already”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is a gem of a coffee shop. I was in St. Augustine for a few days and happened to stop by one morning when I couldn't find the Starbucks, and I'm glad I did. The locally roasted coffee is some of the best I've had, and the pound of beans I bought on the way out is my favorite souvenir from my vacation.

I live in Asheville where there is certainly no shortage of small coffee shops using locally roasted beans, but none of them even comes close to the Ethiopian Queen City coffee we had.

If you appreciate a good cup of coffee, you have to try this place.

“Jewel of a find in St. Augustine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We recently relocated to St. Augustine and are coffee snobs. We discovered a great new place for us. City Coffee Company was purchased by a new owner about 1 year ago and she has been making some marvelous changes. Highlights are fresh produce, healthy choices, delicious and different menu choices, rich coffees, marvelous pasteries and outstanding customer service.

Excellent breakfast and lunch menu with fresh local produce, delicious coffee selections, wonderful muffins and pastries from local sources and a very comfortable newly remodeled interior, tables and seating area. Prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. This place is worth driving to.

The new owner is investing and knocking herself out to ensure the food is fresh, local and tasty. The coffee beats "the other guys" typical coffee and the service is personal and committed to customer satisfaction. We recommend this place for a fast breakfast or lunch, a meeting place with clients or customers, or just a place to get away from the maddening crowd. Stop by and make sure you give Robyn your feedback on the food, service and setting. She is interested, involved and genuinely concerned about her customers. The free internet, menu, coffee, setting and service makes this a great local hang out - perfect for a tasty and healthy bite, delicious coffee and a peaceful setting.
