“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

I saw this place from the outside a while now and did not think it was worth "my curiosity"... Was I wrong! I met my wife there for afternoon coffee and a snack and I was absolutely surprised. The ambience was welcoming, the coffee and snacks were great, and the service was fabulous. The only problem was... some customers did not want to leave and stayed for hours I am told! That creates a shortage of tables for customers to sit...

“Refreshing in St Augustine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Tablespoon Coffee and Dessert House is located where you least expect it. This funky space is a breath of fresh air in the area. Dishes are prepared by a talented and creative young lady with the most fabulous attitude. Chef 'Bean' as she is fondly called is happy to whip us something that is not on the menu board.

Consideration has been given to vegetarians, the 'Tun-a- puna' sandwich is a triple decker overstuffed tasty tuna sandwich and the crusty Italian bread topped with thick mozarella cheese, capers, mixed olives and Italian herbs are two outstanding choices.

Britt and Starbucks coffees are served.

Tablespoon has become so popular that people call to reserve tables!
