My wife and I ate lunch here yesterday on our day trip to St. Augustine. I decided to go here based on other reviews I had read. The biggest draw in my opinion is the history of the cafe. It is in what used to be the largest indoor swimming pool in the world.
As we were waiting to be seated we looked over the menu and was a little shocked by the prices, between $10-$15, which I thought was a little high for lunch. As we were debating on staying we saw some food get delivered to a near by table, and we saw why the prices were what they were. The portions were HUGE!. I've seen dinner portions at some restaurants smaller for more money, so we decided to stay.
I ordered the spinach crepes with chicken and my wife ordered the chicken club sandwich. Neither one of us finished our meal, just too much food. We both enjoyed what we ordered with just a minor complaint about each. Mine could have been a little hotter, in my opinion, but it was cool in the cafe so I think it just lost its heat quickly. My wife's chicken she felt could be seasoned a little more, as it was just on a sandwich with bacon, lettuce and mayo. She said it was ok but just seasoned with salt and pepper. Non-the-less both meals were very good and worth the cost.
So if you are looking for a unique place to eat lunch with cool history and great ambiance, Cafe Alcazar is it.
