My husband and I dropped in for a quick lunch. We ordered and received our sandwiches promptly. The portions were generous and most importantly delicious. The coffee and tea were also prepared with expertise. If you dine in at a table, they are shared. We met one of the performers who made us feel at home at his table. When... More

We went as a group based on a recommendation. We were told the food was good and the service quick. We were the only group ordering food, everyone else coffee. Well, it took 30 minutes to get sandwiches. We said we were in a rush and checked on our food three different times and were told it was being made... More

This place was a nice Starbucks alternative, then added open-mic for local entertainers. Gourmet coffees & light lunch menu. Lately pushing the wine-bar more than the basic day trade. Very expensive for a day-old danish & coffee ($6+). No longer the Starbucks alternative.

Tons of eggs and cheese, very large portion, extremely well-presented. I ate half and am looking forward to the other half for tomorrow's... More

We discovered this on our exit from St Augustine; if it had been any earlier, we would have returned and returned! This offers the best coffee I tasted during my three weeks in Florida. I loved the eggs benedict I ate too, really fresh and tasty. Thank you for such a memorable breakfast.

Partners Robyn & Ted Mooney & Natasha Olivera, along with an outstanding crew, strive to provide a warm genuine dining experience focused on fresh ingredients, local produce & a sense of community. An experience rather than just a meal, an occasion for some food for thought & being more than just a flash in the pan is what we strive toward every day. What has followed since our beginning has been an exciting and joyful exploration of who we are, what we love and what we envision sharing with the world. Our search for the sincerely exceptional has led us to create a restaurant that embodies a home away from home, a place to run into friends, or make new ones. The Bistro is centered around celebrating community culture, local art & music. The heart of our menu is about good clean culinary techniques, respect for ingredients and their origin and our environment. More than just concept, this is a tangible & heartfelt component of who we are & what we are creating. Special attention is given to vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and healthy options because we believe in encouraging diversity at the table & carefully curating a menu that satisfies every individual. Our Chefs & Baristas are well-informed & knowledgeable about the origins of every product & it would be our pleasure to custom-make any item to suit your preferences and requirements. Please join us soon, make yourself at home & become a part of our growing family.
