We were not accustomed to raw food when we dropped in to have lunch here based on
good reviews. For the uninitiated....don't expect to be able to order anything hot - not even soup.
But, the food was good and satisfying...and artfully presented. Everything was carefully explained. We were surprised on the positive side. We liked the funky decor and the staff was exceedingly helpful. Parking spot behind the building really helped.

If your health is important AND you want tasty food try this restaurant.
We had the Cheese & Broccoli soup; the Spinach Lasagna; and the Buddha Bowl.
All were delicious. They make the food without dairy; without additives; and mostly 'raw'.
It doesn't mean the food is served cold - they warm up the food but don't kill the nutrients
by cooking the food. There is a large menu with specials everyday.
The atmosphere is laid back, casual, and a bit 60's funky. It is the opposite of a chain restaurant.
The staff was friendly and attentive.
They even offer a Present Moment Cookbook with great recipes and beautiful photos, which I purchased. The owner of the restaurant, Yvette Schindler, was kind enough to autograph it.
So if you want to try something different and really "feed your body" The Present Moment Cafe
is a great choice.

We are not a vegatarians but my wife and I thought we would try this, since the reviews were so good. We are trying to eat low carb and gluten free. The Present Moment Cafe was shockingly good. The food was inventive, tasteful, and filling. I had a Buddha bowl. Wow! It was very tasty. The entrees are reasonably priced but the desserts are expensive at $7. That cost one star.

The food was F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C! Very flavourful and healthy at a very decent price. Service was causal and friendly too and they provide free parking (not easy to find in St Augustine). Really worth a try, good for couples, friends, and family.
