Description: On any given day, when you stroll into Palm Coast Coffee, Café and Pub at 318 Mallery St. on St. Simons Island, you’ll find a nice array of locals enjoying one of their favorite Village hangouts and island visitors who are thrilled to have found such a quaint, little hot spot. You’ll quickly discover that Palm Coast isn’t just about coffee.Like you’d expect from any good coffee shop, Palm Coast serves some of the freshest coffee, lattes, and espresso on the island, as well as a variety of homemade pastries and the island’s best homemade muffins. However, what people might not realize is that Palm Coast also has a great selection of craft beers that change weekly, and a well-stocked full bar for wine and a wide variety of cocktails. Always be sure to check the special board for new and seasonal concoctions—both in coffee creations and bar beverages! Looking for a relaxing spot for breakfast- Palm Coast has it with great creations as well as eggs your way- all outside on the patio. If it’s something a little more substantial you crave, the lunch and dinner menu includes fresh homemade soups and a variety of other fresh, creative selections that you won’t find elsewhere on the island. The seared ahi is a well-known menu favorite. There are also a number of tasty vegetarian options available. Seating is abundant and pet-friendly on the sunny outdoor patio and or in the shade of the courtyard.The other thing you’ll find in the courtyard is a terrific covered stage for the musicians who play here each weekend. Palm Coast books both local and regional acts and is one of the best outdoor venues for live music in the Golden Isles. Open mic nights are popular year round, and, boy, does this place drawn a crowd on summer evenings! Day or night, this is a place where locals, visitors, families, and pets gather—all are welcome.Stop in to have a cup of coffee and take advantage of the free WiFi service while you study. Grab a beer and spend a sunny afternoon in a rocking chair on the porch with your pooch. For date night, come early for dinner then stay to listen to some lively tunes in the courtyard. You’ll agree Palm Coast Coffee is a little bit more than your average coffee shop. In fact, you might just fall in love.

We were chatting with a lady on the street and asked about a great place to eat and she told us about Palm Coast (she said she and her husband eat there whenever they're on St. Simons Island). So we decided to give it a try.

Great food, terrific energy and yet relaxing at the same time. We had a table by the window and could watch the street activity and monitor the tourists relaxing with cocktails on the porch in those great rocking chairs.

The sandwiches were excellent, the waitress had a terrific sense of humor & she was efficient! We were so glad we tried it!

“Best sandwiches of Saint Simons Island!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Something different then the usual American lunch fare. Wonderful freshly prepared sandwiches and the best thing, no fries! Lots of veggies and not so common side dishes available. A couple of vegetarian options as well. I would say this is the best lunch spot in the island. Friendly, relaxed staff, we got recognized by the owner at our second visit already which gives you a very welcome feeling. However, no real cappuccino.... a very decent latte though. Keep up the good work, you guys are really diversifying yourselves with this kind of food!

“Great atmostphere”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I really enjoyed our waitress, although I wish I remembered her name. I got Greek salad with Ahi Tuna and it was satisfactory. I have a feeling their calling is the sandwiches and apps. Not a good place to go for seafood - they don't have any - but my friend and I really enjoyed dining on the deck and enjoying a little music in the courtyard.

Thanks for visiting Palm Coast and providing your feedback. While we are not a “seafood” restaurant, mainly because we don’t serve anything fried-- we do provide several great dishes. One is a wild Georgia shrimp roll- all fresh never frozen.. The other is a seared Ahi Tuna plate- which is sashimi grade tuna that is seared and served over a bead of fresh greens along with pasta salad.. Hopefully on your next visit you can try one of these.

“Great food, ok seating”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We found Palm Coast when walking around St. Simon's. We decided to seat outside because it was a nice morning. The condiments outside were very dusty (butter, jelly, creamy) and the butter was separated out because the days are getting to the 90s but they still leave these outside. I got coffee but never once got a warm up. Now the coffee cup is big so maybe they don't do refills. What salvaged the place from poor to average is the food. The bacon, veggie scramble, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffin were delicious. And the fruit was very fresh tasting. I would recommend sitting inside or asking for a cleaner set of condiments. Other than that, the place is decent.
