Having worked at various coffee shops in our youth and also being coffee snobs we were blown away by how awesome both their coffee and chai were. All the little knickknacks provided us with endless amusements every morning we visited. If you like coffee or tea your owe it to yourself to stop by. If you do, make sure to... More

The shop is amazingly cute, but what is most important, the coffee is excellent. Conveniently located to everything.

Nice stop for a snack, coffee, ice cream, or ice cream and coffee!! Refreshing interlude from the sun crowded main streets! Would return.

Stumbled upon this little gem on our way out of town and had to stop in. Small open air cafe on the corner with eclectic items inside including a snarky magnet collection we thoroughly enjoyed while we waited for our drinks. We both got an Almond Joy Frozen Mocha and they were prefect!! Not too sweet and a great cool... More

Crucial Coffee is a cozy, colonial style structure with delicious offerings. The Spiced Thai coffee is heavenly! Try a butterscotch cookie too. Highly recommended!

Fun little coffee shop. So much better than the standard corporate places. Every cup is pressed and made individually -- not from a carafe. It opens (approximately) at 7 am. But it is worth a few extra minutes. Became my vacation coffee place go to. Walk on the beach at 6 am to see the sunrise and thank God for... More

My husband & I had dessert here while on vacation. It is a colonial blacksmith shop turned coffee/desert shack surrounded by twinkle lights, foliage & live music at night. Go!

Crucial Coffee is definitely a must when in St. Augustine. A Small wooden shack but with plenty on the menu. Not much room inside when full but the friendly staff are quick and keep the line moving. From coffee to ice cream, all in one place. Their cappuccino and bubble tea with fruit of choice is excellent. A generous medium... More
