I love almost everything on the menu. Today I tired the blueberry crepes, and they were amazing! The presentation is beautiful as well. Whenever I go, we always get desert. I love the banana split, and the brownie sundae.

This cafe is serving excellent vegan food that tasted incredibly good. Can recommend the burgers and the nachos. Very nice interior and superfriendly staff makes this a perfect experience!

I have Celiac disease so on our vacation I needed to find gluten free friendly places to eat. We enjoyed our dinner enough to go back a second time on the trip and we both had the same entree as before. I agree with another review that says the food is overpriced for what you get. I know it is... More

So sad to report, on our first visit since this restaurant was sold by its originator, that The Present Moment Cafe as we knew it is not the same. After it was sold a few months ago I started to see them post images of sloppy-looking plates of food that looked nothing like the beautifully crafted food of the past.... More

I'm not sure when you last visited Present Moment Cafe, but please rest assured none of the recipes have changed with the new ownership. In fact, Yvette who built this place 10 years ago is still very much instrumental in the day-to-day operations and we work together closely on maintaining and seeing through her vision for this cafe. The burrito... More

Found this place via Happy Cow app when looking for a plant-based meal for lunch while doing the touristy thing in St Augustine. A little out of the way, but so well worth the effort to find. Food was excellent, staff was friendly and efficient, atmosphere is funky-cool. Highly recommend this place and we will return if we visit the... More

The food was good but a little overpriced for what was provided. We stopped in for lunch and had one of the specials - not bad but not great either.

I usually rave about this place, but my last visit wasn't that great. Had the macro burger which had a pattie of flavorlous mush on a bun. The pattie fell apart which I wouldn't have minded if the flavor and crunch were good. Not. I will go back as I've had many good meals there.

If your a steak and potato person, pass this by....but, if your an adventuresome soul, you need to check this place out! Pleasant, small place with friendly and informative staff. Daily specials for this vegan restaurant will make your mouth water and your mind wonder. It's a little out of the way but well worth the effort. The cashew ice... More

Everything I've ever had has been excellent! The Viva Burrito is my standby but the specials are always delicious. I live in Tampa and crave this place constantly!

My sister and I went. One of us had a Buddha bowl and the other had the Reuben. So much to eat and we really could have split a meal. I can't tell you how wonderful the food was. Hot, tasty, imaginative, beautifully presented. Service was excellent. Can't wait to try again. Want to try the cashew ice cream. Love... More
