This is a cute little oldie coffee shop with beautiful outdoor gardens. The ice coffee we had was excellent. The best I've had. We stopped in this cute little place twice while touring the streets of the Old City. Our second visits service was not up to par at all. The woman behind the counter was talking on her cell...

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.

Anytime I travel anyplace close to St. Augustine, I will drive the extra miles to get coffee at Crucial Coffee. Though I myself always get the Snickers Latte, my friends and family have tried the rest of the menu and everything is incredible. Handcrafted, slowly made with love and topped with chocolate. It doesn't get any better. Plus the little... More

Cute coffee house in the heart of old town. Close to the fort and a convenient location to the downtown area. I loved the back patio!! Awesome spot to chill and take in the day!

Stopped in on a chilly (for Florida) Sunday morning. They were about the only place in the Historic District that was open for business, but I got a delicious coffee and a decadent lemon bar to give me strength for my rambles about town.
