Customer Reviews

“This restaurant has been around forever and is plagued by insanely short hours, but that's to guarantee absolutely fresh food. When the food runs out, they're done for day. But the food is rich, stove-fresh delight! So are the cookies! Def a simple, affordable St. Augustine MUST!"

“This hidden gem is a great place to get soup, empanadas, salads and desserts. The food is very good and the staff lovely. A great place for a quick reasonably priced meal.”
