Great service and great food. Definitely a local's place for breakfast, the Sea Oats Caffe has some of the best breakfast around. Known for having 20 different kinds of pancakes, they are a definite must. If you like Reese's peanut butter cups like some of my family members, you will not be disappointed with the pancakes. They are the size... More

I love the historical downtown ambience of St. Augustine, but sometimes it's hard for a local to find a nice place to escape all the tourism.

I could not disagree more with the last review. We have been coming to St Augustine Beach for 3 years and finally got around to Sea Oats. We've tried many many places for breakfast...some OK and some yuck. Nothing wowed us. We were wowed with Sea Oats Caffe. We ate there twice on this trip. We actually ate there this... More

First of all I was hesitant to eat here because the place looked pretty dirty inside. I ordered the french toast, which was made with store bought Arnold bread and the egg batter on it tasted rotten. I sent it back. My husband ended up getting sick after eating his bland omelet. The iced tea tasted like it was instant... More

Sea Oats is that locals only (but visitors welcome) kinda place that is a "must eat" venue. Their claim to fame is monster pancakes custom cooked to order so breakfast hour is packed to no surprise, but customers gladly wait for a table while checking out the culinary masterpieces being delivered to tables. Staff is friendly and in high gear... More
