After a reasonable amount of time we were seated. The food and service could not have been better. Fresh sausage, delicious home baked biscuits and amazing main courses. A bit of a walk from downtown St Augustine, but well worth it

We had tasty food here. The shortages of this place are: 1. there is not enough parking space for the cafe; 2. tables are not enough for holiday season

We love this place. We've been here several times for breakfast and lunch. It's hip without being hipster, healthy with flavor and the service is great too. Vegan, vegetarian or carnivore, there's something at the Blue Hen that you'll love.

We normally like to try out different restaurants on vacation, but we ate breakfast at The Blue Hen our first morning and kept gong back. Great food, great service, hear prices, great vibe.

We don't get out for breakfast very often but when we do we like small, family-run places with lots of charm. The Blue Hen Cafe has it all. Great food, friendly service, and as charming as they come. We had to wait a little while...More

If you're having a laid back Saturday morning, just bring something to read and have a nice relaxing wait. It will be worth it.
