The gourmet popsicles are out of this world. I visited there today and got a strawberry chia pop! It was delicious. I actually visit the Hyppo Cafe a lot. For lunch, my favorite is the Du Jardin (hummus and veggies rolled up in naan bread). So good!! I love that the employees are always smiling and seem genuinely happy to be there. Check out the Hyppo, you'll be happy you did!!

The Hyppo is a must stop if we're anywhere near St. Augustine. Their popsicle flavors are amazing. This trip, on our way to Orlando we stopped at the Hyppo cafe and I tried the sweet potato crunch. I ordered my popsicle before I ordered lunch because I was afraid I wouldn't have room afterward, and having a popsicle was my top priority! It was, as usual, delicious! We usually stop in the downtown location, but this time we stopped at the Hyppo cafe, which is located in a strip center outside of town. They not only have popsicles, but offer breakfast and lunch items as well. My hubby got the pork sandwich with gorgonzola cheese and figgy preserves. I got the mixed green salad with caramelized walnuts and gorgonzola cheese with a vinaigrette dressing. Both were delicious. The sandwich came with an apple slaw that was yummy, too. My only complaint was that the salad was a little difficult to eat. Stop once, and I guarantee the Hyppo well become a must stop for you, too.

First off, what I like most about The Hyppo is that, if you didn't knnow it was here, you could easily miss it. It's off the beaten path, but only by about a block or so.

Seating is more than ample, and includes some very nice overstuffed arm chairs and couches. If you can't get comfortable here, then you can't get comfortable.

The Hyppo Cafe offers up a nice selection of coffees, and some tasty sandwiches, as well. My favorite is the Grilled Hyppo & Cheese. I get it with the ham (it's also available with turkey) on sourdough.

The staff is young; college age, for the most part, and very friendly. I like to stop in, have lunch, and cruise the web for a while.

Definitely a nice, uncrowded (yet busy) place to sit for a little while...

Hidden in a shopping center, this cute place is filled with interesting art, wood counter, booths & tables & inviting atmosphere for coffees, gourmet popsicles, cookies and/or good fresh food.We missed breakfast which looked good, but husband had a hummus, tapenade, greens on naan wrap with refreshing slaw side & I had a delicious TBA salad,(turkey, bacon,avocado, gouda on fresh spring greens). The generous portion of this combo was perfectly done & beautiful to look at.I also ordered a bowl of the Southwestern Chowder which was bland & watery. Could have used more beans, corn, tomatoes & taste. It was hot though & it was a cold day. But I still ordered what the Hyppo is known for-the popsicles. Had an Espresso one that was fantastic! It was a hard choice since there are so many good ones to choose from & the man behind the counter was very helpful when I asked if I should get Espresso or Sweet Potato Crunch. I've had several of the flavors before in the other Hyppo. On the whole, a nice find in this part of St. Augustine.
