These folks also have Kombucha on tap! There is a great little taco place next door, Osprey tacos. It's a small place but a flight and sitting on the porch is a great way to enjoy this place.

Great bar, tucked away with amazing fresh ingredient tacos. Ask for our favorite bartender, Kayla--tell her Hope & James sent you. The owner used to work at Ice Plant Bar--he's created a great space for just hanging out killing time and sipping a delicious drink. I particularly like sitting out in the courtyard. It's just across from the fort, and if you weren't looking for it--you'd miss it!

I admit, this is a dive bar. But if you want to experience a true grit local dive bar--this is the spot. They do allow smoking inside, so be aware. Pool, Darts, and Juke Box and decent drink prices.

They also have a taproom on Cathedral Place in downtown, which is closer, but if you want the full brewery experience (i love the smell of the fermentation) I'd recommend driving out to this location--food trucks are often parked out there on Thurs-Sat & cornhole, pool, and other fun bar games are available.

This is a pretty cheap, and maybe a little divey, bar but it's great for wings , bar snacks, and watching the football games.

A favorite of ours, plus a great bar! The best burger in St Augustine, hands down. I especially love the whole fish entree when it's available. Nice for a special occasion meal. Brunch on the weekends is also amazing!

Taco Tuesday you'll wait at least 20 minutes for a seat unless you arrive early, $6 margaritas (even the top shelf choices), and $2 tacos. A good choice when it's not Tuesday as well.

Breakfast! Often times you'll have to wait because the cafe is so small, but worth it. I love the blue crab quiche, and the mimosas come in a pint glass for only $5--get one while you wait ;)

There are several locations but this is the best coffee shop(s) in town! Highly recommended. Get the Honey Badger or Iced Aussie. ( I also love their cookies & scones!) Feel free to get a punch card and leave it for the next guests.

This spot is unique to our little town, it opened the week our first hurricane came through and flooded them and they had to regroup and start over. But! The Peruvian menu is so special and everyone we've known to go has loved it.

If you're on the beach and want a smoothie or a burrito this is the the spot. Their Nutty Mother salad is our favorite--big enough to share with a smoothie and then back to the beach. Come sandy & in your bathing suit, they don't mind! ;)

This healthy and local ingredient food truck is SO GOOD. Owned by the sweetest folks in town, and Flagler alumni-they offer amazing wraps, salads, rice bowls, and smoothies. They're only open 11-3 so check their menu online before heading out.

These are the best tacos in town, and the staff are always so friendly (& fast!). On Mondays you get a discount on your beer next door @ Old Coast Ales if you get food here ;) My favorite? The cheeseburger taco--I KNOW I KNOW, but trust me on this. Also the churros.

This is tiny little spot, right on the beachside. They have great mimosas, simple (but good) breakfast choices and some good lunch options--though I've only had the burger ;) James and I usually like to start our beach days there with a couple mimosas and the seafood omlette--yum! Then walk over to the beach. Parking can be a little tricky so be careful ;)

This is a favorite local spot around here--it doesn't come up often on tourist radar because it's just outside of the downtown area but it's a great option for a budget meal. Happy hour beer & wine options--great tacos, huge burritos, and the jerk chicken nachos are a favorite of ours.

This used to be our old neighborhood until it became so gentrified we could afford to buy a home here. That aside, it's a beautiful neighborhood rich with history. A lot of Civil Rights activity happened here and I'd highly recommend looking for the cell phone tour, posted on the placards in the 'hood.

Even if you're not interested in paying the $8'ish dollars to get into the museum you should most definitely walk through the courtyard (free) and feed the koi fish (.25). It's a beautiful location for a photo opp and a little family fun.
