Respond to Review of The Present Moment Cafe and Market
Review: My wife and I traveled to St. Augustine for a last minute weekend getaway (from South Carolina) and were excited to find a veg restaurant. The Present Moment Cafe is what made our trip memorable. Neither of us eat strictly raw, but all vegan, so we were excited to try a raw place for a change. We had dinner on Saturday night - The Creamy White Truffle Pesto Pasta & the Jerk Tempeh burger special (not 100% raw), the Kale Avocado salad & the Pecan/Apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream for dessert. EVERYTHING was so delicious, especially the pasta and the dessert -- we couldn't believe how good the cashew ice cream was & had to ask our server how they make it. We couldn't believe it was raw. Our server was very friendly and helpful; the atmosphere in here is great too. We also had their wine; my wife loved the 14 Hands Reisling and I got the Malbec which was also yummy. We had a wonderful romantic evening. We were sad that they were closed on Sunday, otherwise we would have gone back for sure. But before leaving town Monday morning, we stopped in for breakfast - delicious! I had an awesome bagel with hummus, tomato, avocado, onion and sprouts and my wife had the raw blueberry pancakes. The coffee was great too. As far as the other reviews saying it's too pricey - the quality of the RAW food is worth every cent. Every dish is made fresh to order and this place is definitely less expensive than many other raw restaurants. The portion size is also more generous than most. We will absolutely return here during our next visit, and have nothing but praise for this place.
