Restaurants in Downtown St. Augustine Are Steps Away from Our Inns

One of the best parts of lodging at one of the St. Augustine Historic Inns is that you have full and unlimited access (keeping in mind business hours) to restaurants in downtown St. Augustine! Like many shops, attractions, museums, and bars, there are dozens of restaurants that are only a few steps away from the bed and breakfast you’re staying at.

About Downtown St. Augustine’s Food Scene

Restaurants in downtown St. Augustine are among the most popular destinations in Northeast Florida for mealtimes. This is because dining downtown is more of an experience than a bite to eat. Families, couples, friend groups, and individuals can look forward to specialty drinks, mouthwatering appetizers, beautifully (decorated) plated entrees, and delightfully dangerous desserts – and let’s not forget about the relaxing ambiances, picturesque views, and live music you’ll find in many eateries. Furthermore, we can guarantee that whatever food you’re craving is sure to have a home in a downtown restaurant.

From the second-best pizza in the world to datil pepper infused delicacies to a Southern twist on traditional plates, there is a special dish for everyone downtown, even if you’re dining with a picky eater! Additionally, nearly all the restaurants are locally owned and fresh, healthy food is prioritized as many restaurants have a farm-to-table or sea-to-table mentality. As if it could get any better, you’ll find countless eclectic options!

Breakfast in St. Augustine

Included in the long list of perks of lodging with many of the St. Augustine Historic Inns is a delicious home-cooked breakfast each morning. Although there are a few restaurants downtown that serve breakfast, we encourage you to dine with your historic inn for the most important meal of the day. Wake up each morning to golden-brown Swiss cheese, chive quiche with flaky crust, warm blueberry soup, baked French toast with apples pecans and sausage, and a plethora of other options. Trust us, we’re sure that you’ll enjoy these eggcellent breakfasts a waffle lot. (Please let your innkeeper know if you plan to skip breakfast)

From walk-up window eateries to cafes to bayfront dining to yummy pizza places, stick around downtown St. Augustine to fuel up for your midday meal.
