Food & Drink

Indulge in St. Augustine's culinary scene. Here's some of our favorites.

Quick Breakfast

Grab and go style food.

  • Mojos Tacos

    Mostly known for their tacos served for lunch and dinner, Mojos also makes a great breakfast burrito and breakfast tacos. It’s also right across the street from the AirBNB. The quickest way to get a great breakfast

  • Island Donut

    Great donuts and breakfast sandwiches. Located near the beach, about a 5-10 minute drive from the AirBNB

  • Creative Juices

    Very good and healthy juices & other breakfast foods.

Traditional Service

Waiter/waitress serves you.

  • Blue Hen Cafe (downtown)

    Our favorite traditional breakfast spot in St. Augustine. It is very popular on the weekends. We recommend getting there early before the big brunch crowds or you can expect longer wait times.

  • Beachside Diner

    Your traditional style breakfast served up near the beach. Larger space so wait normally is not too bad.


Here are our favorite lunch spots in St. Augustine. Most of the places in the dinner section of our guide also serve lunch so we’ll reserve this section for places that are more focused on lunch only.

  • Osprey Tacos

    Some really awesome, unique tacos. It’s one of our favorite places to grab lunch. The brewery next door is a nice bonus if you like craft beer.

  • Nalus

    Food truck located in the Surf Station parking lot. Great tacos, fresh tuna, poke bowls and more. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but we love the Mermaid wrap.

  • Crave

    Healthy, delicious wraps and salads. Located downtown.

  • Stir-It-Up

    Laidback restaurant attached to the Pit Surf Shop on the beach. Great sandwiches and smoothies.

  • Mojos Tacos

    Right across the street. Some of the best tacos you’ll find.

  • Cheba Hut

    iterally right across the street. The convenience factor you cannot beat. The sandwiches are pretty tasty as well.


St. Augustine has some fantastic restaurants. The below list is our favorites. There are so many others though that you should not limit yourself to only looking at the handful we’ve provided below.

  • Floridian

    This is our favorite restaurant in St. Augustine. Farm-to-table, a variety of meat, fish, & vegetarian options. The flavor and their unique spin on traditional dishes is amazing.

  • Black Fly

    If you want to avoid the downtown crowds, Black Fly is an excellent choice. Located right up the road with fantastic food.

  • Catch 27

    Great seafood restaurant in the downtown area.

  • Michael's Tasting Room

    Casual fine dinning restaurant located downtown. Specializing in fresh steak and seafood. Smaller, intimate restaurant. Reservations are a must.

  • Boat Drinks

    Fun vibes and good food with excellent cocktails

  • Salt Life

    If you’re headed to the beach area, this is a great spot that has regular live music.

  • Beachcomber

    Located right on the beach. Good food and beachfront dining.

  • Conch House

    About a 10 minute walk from the AirBNB or very short drive. Conch House is located right on the water, it’s the marina you can see from the waterfront deck. They have tiki huts that are built over the water allowing for true waterfront dining. In our opinion, the food is ‘good but not great’ but the dining experience is amazing!

  • Caps on the Water

    If you’re up for a short drive, Caps on the Water located in Vilano has some amazing food and sunsets second to none.

  • Beaches at Vilano

    Another great spot in Vilano that’s a little bit closer. A more “beachy” environment than the upscale Caps with great food and views.

Bars, Breweries, & Craft Cocktails

We have great bars, breweries, distilleries and wineries here in St. Augustine. Checkout a few listed below. Some of these places also serve good food.

  • Ice Plant Distillery

    Great craft cocktails located within an old ice manufacturing warehouse. Very cool, very unique and very tasty!

  • San Sebastian Winery

    Winery with a rooftop bar. Live music on most weekends.

  • Old Coast Ales

    Great brewery right up the road.

  • Dog Rose Brewing

    Brewery located in the downtown area.

  • Conch House Marina

    Easy 5 minute walk. Great cocktails on the boat docks. Order a drink called the Goombay. But be careful of having too many, it’s what the locals call getting ‘Goombay Smashed’. Conch House also does a Raggae Sunday during the spring/summer months with live music during the day.

  • Prohibition Kitchen

    Restaurant and bar on St. George street. Great cocktails and a very cool building. Live music most weekends after dinner.

  • Bin 39

    Wine bar in the heart of St. George street. Live music during the day most weekends.
