This place was a nice Starbucks alternative, then added open-mic for local entertainers. Gourmet coffees & light lunch menu. Lately pushing the wine-bar more than the basic day trade. Very expensive for a day-old danish & coffee ($6+). No longer the Starbucks alternative.

Visited on a quick visit to the area on our way home from vacationing... what a wonderful surprise to find this spot! I had the breakfast wrap with bacon, and it was the best I've ever had. Tons of eggs and cheese, very large portion, extremely well-presented. I ate half and am looking forward to the other half for tomorrow's... More

We discovered this on our exit from St Augustine; if it had been any earlier, we would have returned and returned! This offers the best coffee I tasted during my three weeks in Florida. I loved the eggs benedict I ate too, really fresh and tasty. Thank you for such a memorable breakfast.

Our hotel was right next door (Holiday Inn). We heard great reviews here. It looks simple enough from the outside but inside it was cool. They had guitars and local artwork on the walls. The wait staff was nice. Our bagel and egg wrap breakfast sandwich was presented to beautifully - and can I tell you that the cream cheese... More

Went here early on a Sunday morning for coffee. Also got an apple muffin. While eating with my wife on free WIFI, a singer got up and played while we were there and was very good. A nice surprise...

Normally I'd wait until the 3rd or 4th visit to provide a review, but this time it only took one visit. Carefully wrapped sandwiches with a small salad containing a variety of greens not just a bunch of lettuce as other places makes their menu a unique one. Great taste, good service, and great atmosphere. I won't be surprised if... More

We were heading towards a branch of Denny's for breakfast on our way out of St Augustine when we sorted this place next door. Great coffee, breakfast sandwiches and friendly service were very much a feature and there is live music in the evenings. A definite place to find

Stopped here for breakfast on our way to the airport. The coffee is outstanding, and they definitely have a foodie breakfast menu. Enjoyed the egg breakfast wrap and the turkey kale bowl. Different, delicious, and healthy.

Very good food, very well-presented. Unfortunately, "musicians" really detract from the scene--amateur guitarists whose music is amped so loud, many patrons can't enjoy normal conversation. Coffee OK, not as good as Kookaburra, though. Staff drops many items which echo very loudly, maybe something wrong with the floors? Or the staff, lol? Air-conditioning could use a tuneup and, when they're frying... More
