This fun little spot was spot-on for a coffee or drink, near the water, and full of charm. We came across this charming coffee "hut" while walking Saint Augustine, coming around the corner and spotting it near the water (and across from the Castillo).

Great choice of coffee, smoothies and shakes. Cookies and cakes too tempting! We had a pleasant hour here in their shady garden and chilled out whilst deciding which tourist spots to hit. Cost us 15 dollars for 2 coffees and a cookie but they were all delicious.

This place is one not to miss as it is amazing. The variety of drinks they offer is impressive and they offer a great outdoor sitting area. It is also located close to the main road so it offers good views.

Stopped in to cool off after visiting the fort. The interior is quirky and they have an interesting selection of drinks.
