But first, Coffee
We know some people just can’t start their day (we’re talking to you Australians!) without a finely brewed cup. Whether you prefer an espresso, cappuccino, flat white or just a simple pour over, here are few of our favorites where you can get your fix:
– Opened in 2012, and now with 5 locations around St. Augustine, this Aussie-American espresso bar and pie shop based prides themselves on serving masterfully crafted products that are ethically sourced and expertly roasted. They blend their love of coffee with a passion for serving the community, all with a smile. They even did a collaboration with Old Coast Ales to create the Kookaburra Brown Ale. Come and see what the buzz is about!
– One of the most adorable (and oldest!) places to grab a cup, Crucial Coffee is conveniently located in the heart of St. Augustine’s historic district corner of Charlotte and Cuna Streets. The space inside is small, but with outdoor tables it’s a great place to relax between all your exploring, do some people watching, and enjoy the view. They are also known for their selection of ice cream and milkshakes!
City Bistro Tea House and Coffee Company – Not only is the locally roasted coffee phenomenal, City Bistro offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner all day every day (including gluten-free options). Definitely try the smoked salmon bruschetta! If you’re on a working vacation, this shop on U.S. 1 offers free unlimited WiFi and is a great choice for meetings. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, and all food can be ordered for take out as well!
