“Best coffe shop in St. Andrews!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

St. Andrews has needed a place like this for so long! The seating is very comfortable and functional. A great place to lounge, have a business meeting or sit at the bar. Many coffee and tea selections and a small menue of food. My tea was wonderful and refreshing. My husband had mushroom soup and pesto chicken salad. He said 'on a national scale this food is very good but considering the neighborhood this food is beyond excellent.' We just hope that the locals will have the intelligence to appreciate it. We will be back!

“Great selection if beverages”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Tried Cafe Amavida for the first time tonight. They have an enormous amount of teas and coffees to choose from, I chose an orange blossom tea and it was very good! I came for dinner. Be aware that their food menu is very limited. I ordered the Beef Bourguignon. It was very good. Not sure if they sell wine by the glass, I didn't see it on the menu. A glass of red wine would have gone much better. The server (counter service) was very helpful. I think if I had to chose a word to describe Cafe Amavida it would be eclectic! Check out the menu online.
