We were starving and needed a quick bite to eat, and this was a good place, since we were already at the Fountain of Youth. The prices were kind of high for just a burger and fries, but their service was excellent.

Nice place for a quick lunch. Simple deep fried food. Nothing to elaborate. Just quick fare with outside picnic table eating.

Stopped by the Fountain of youth attraction during a business trip to St. Augustine in December 2016. Decided to try out the Cafe, had the Cheeseburger combo, and it was excellent. Been back several times since, and each time has been great.

This is located at the entrance to the Fountain of Life Archaeological Park and is little more than a shack with picnic tables outside. Ask for a basket of fries - best chips I've had for a long time!
