The Original Cafe Eleven
Cafe Eleven is like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde… except it isn’t scary.
My parents discovered a cozy cafe across from the beach with much better coffee than the hotel’s. Fresh, affordable breakfasts drew them back each morning and they reminisce abouut their early morning coffees on the patio.
My hubby and I bought a Groupon to a hip local joint with some great brews on tap and a good vegetarian menu (don’t worry, they have fish & meatloaf, too). Cool music was a bonus and we later learned they host concerts (reasonable ticket prices- I’ve seen $8 ish to $15 ish).
You guessed it- The Original Cafe Eleven is the darling of St. Augustine Beach Breakfasts($4 - $7), a lunchtime staple (sandwiches are under $8) and also the hipster locals bike to for happy hour every night (3-7 pm, 2 for 1 beer & wine).
The split personality of this local spot is pleasant morning, noon and night. Visit from 7 am – 9pm daily, later on nights there is a show.
