A few friends and I were in town visiting my beach house. I've lived in Saint Augustine several years and frequent multiple local restaurant which we've always loved. So on this day(Monday) we arrived for a late breakfast and asked the waitress if breakfast was still available to which she replied she'd have to check with the cook. The cook agreed, and so we decided to stay as it was a friends birthday and he wanted breakfast. The waitress returned to take our order but we weren't quite ready and that's when things took a turn for the worse. Apparently the cook(the owners sister) was having a bad day and barked at poor waitress to get our order immediately as she was going to cut us off from breakfast. She said it so loud from behind the counter the whole restaurant heard, next thing you know she rather abruptly came to our table about a minute after the waitress had just asked if we were ready to order. Feeling rushed, my friends began ordering but her attitude got worse as she asked if we wanted hash browns or potatoes then before anyone could answer she said "well you don't have a choice I threw the hash out." Then she decided we were taking too long to order and said "c'mon guys I don't have all day." At this point I decided I would not eat and told her I wasn't going to order and to move to the next person. I wasn't rude, I'm a very polite person but then she began to harass me to order something to which I refused. She then told me she had "calmed down" but by this point I just wanted to leave so as not to spoil my friends birthday. I've never been treated so rudely and I will never return, nor ever recommend this place.
On the other hand, we did go right around the corner to have an amazing brunch at Casa Maya.
