The Manatee Cafe

In Restaurants, St. Augustine, Vegan friendly, Vegetables, Vegetarian on 25 September 2011 at 11:37 pm

This wonderful cafe is a delight! Almost bordering on being a shrine for manatees, this place has a fun decor and a huge heart for sea cows. The colors are relaxing as is the atmosphere.

The majority of their food is vegan friendly and mighty good. I had their Veggie Burrito #1 (pictured above) with a side of tabouli and crunchy blue corn chips.  The sweet potato was a nice surprised and added a unique flavor to the meal. Everything tasted FRESH!  Kg (new friend!) had their veggie burger which I think I should have gotten and will probably get the next time I go. It was stacked, beautiful and I totally didn’t get a pic of it. It had black beans and onions which are a total selling point, so yeah, I think I will be getting that.

The French Pantry

There are very few places one can call “heaven on earth”. The French Pantry is one of them. This excellent, almost secret place is usually found by word of mouth and with alluring phrases such as “Everything is fantastic on the menu!” and “They make THE BEST French bread.”

I had the opportunity to go and yes, The French Pantry is that good. Located in what seems like an industrial alley the only way you can truly spot it is to look for the random line of people waiting to get inside (EDIT: Now there is a forest green valance on the outside saying, “The French Pantry”). With strict hours from 11:00 am – 2:00pm, you had better get there early, no excuses. Read the rest of this entry »

The Döner House

In Cake, Dessert, Drinks, Restaurants, Sandwiches on 29 December 2009 at 5:08 pm

You know how you crave something so much that you’ll be on your utmost good behavior to get it? I did that. The word “schnitzel” was spoken and like an attentive pup, I did what I was told so I could get some much needed schnitzel and maybe spätzle. There was only one problem. The place closed down!!! It is GONE. NO MORE! Ceases to be in existence on this current plane of reality. Believe me I was bummed.

Wanting to make sure that it was really gone, BigHache and I walked in and asked. It was true. No delicate German chocolate cake as a wonderful follow-up to the hearty meal we imagined. That cake was awesomeness twice squared! Simple, refreshing German chocolate cake with a light cream…ugh. WHY!!!!??? I really wanted that schnitzel, yo! And caaaake!
