Description: 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.

We enjoyed the best coffee in St. Augustine and the setting was very relaxing. We recommend it highly

Christmas week, we visited and LOVED the atmosphere and the staff and couldn't wait to return. When we visited yesterday, (as new residents of St Augustine) our server was rude and behaved like we were annoying him. After ordering our coffees (4 of them), he coldly stated a total, he never asked if we would like anything else. I responded with "I have more we would like to order". He then rolled his eyes and stared towards to ceiling while I ordered three pastries, that when I asked him questions, was met with "whatever is in there, I don't know". He then had to ask me again what I ordered. We were truly disappointed in this experience, and unfortunately will not return when treated so poorly.

We pride ourselves on great atmosphere, great food, and the best in friendly customer service and we clearly failed on the last point. The employee who served you is no longer employed here. We are certain you will have a much more positive and enjoyable experience in the future.

Whether indulging in your favorite hot or iced coffee/breakfast or your lunch favorites, City Coffee is a relaxing place to be. There's comfortable seating for lounging with your friends or surfing the Internet with the free WiFi. The decor includes local art. Drop by in the evenings for music or poetry readings. There's something for everyone...and the homemade Amaretto cake is to die for! Add a friendly staff and you'll see why City Coffee is a St. Augustine treasure!

Good coffee, nice atmosphere. We sat and had a nice private conversation for a long while and no one minded.
